It’s hard for me to resist a smoothie full of berries. Berries are a popular smoothie ingredient because they pack a punch in the flavor and antioxidant department. I use a mix of organic frozen berries.  Any berry will work here— use your favorite! This yummy Cinnaberry Green Smoothie uses ingredients that have a low glycemic index, which is great if you’re watching your sugar intake. Cinnamon may even help lower blood glucose levels. Health benefits aside, I love this smoothie! It’s sweet with a little hint of cinnamon, and creamy from the almond milk. I totally dig it.  Tip:  Always rotate your greens (romaine, spinach, kale, chard, arugula, etc.)
