The protein from the milk in this smoothie increases energy by its metabolism-boosting effect, Kleiner says. “It’s also rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and potassium, which supports nerve conduction and muscle contraction and enables you to think more clearly and move more easily.”
Bonus: Cinnamon not only adds warm, sweet flavor, but this spice has also been shown to keep blood sugar levels in check by helping the body burn carbs for fuel.
