Sexy Raw Pecan Pie Smoothie

Smoothies are a perfect snack in the summer. They are refreshing, easy to travel with and a great way to get in your beautiful nutrients without feeling stuffed and weighed down.

I personally, at least, have one smoothie per day in the summer. Lately those smoothies have been “Green Smoothies” so I was craving something different and what a healthy way to get the flavors and satisfaction of Pecan Pie.

Here is some info on why this smoothie is so sexy:

  • Cinnamon – Two studies have shown that consuming cinnamon may help in controlling blood sugar levels. It is also believed that cinnamon can keep your appetite satisfied longer and freshen and/or maintain fresh breath. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
  • Pecans – Pecans are a good source of healthy fats and protein. They have been shown to help lower cholesterol levels and may contribute to neurological health.
  • Dates – Dates are high in fiber and are a fantastic source of energy. Dates contain fast absorbing sugars which are great for energy levels pre and post workout. Dates also contain a significant amount of iron and certain B Vitamins. They are also very easy have on the go for when energy levels dip. Their sweetness provide a fantastic substitution for regular sugar in recipes.
