Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this pumpkin apple morning smoothie.

Apples:
The polyphenols in apples help slow down the digestion of carbs, and breaks them down into simple sugars, which puts less sugar load in the blood stream. The regulation of blood sugar is key to reducing food cravings.

Cinnamon:
This potent spice is packed with health benefits. It boosts brain function, protects against heart disease because of calcium and fiber, regulates blood sugar, and provides antimicrobial benefits. Plus it tastes great!

Cloves:
They are a very potent spice because of their antiviral, antibacterial, analgesic, and antiseptic properties. Cloves also provide a pleasant aroma and flavor to food, teas, and more.

Nutmeg:
It has been used since ancient times for its ability to boost brain function, relieve pain and indigestion, and detox the liver and kidneys.

Pumpkins:
They are a staple during Halloween, and provide great health benefits. Pumpkins are packed with vitamin A, which is great for our eyes, vitamin C, which is great for the immune system, and beta-carotene, which is great for our skin and eyes.
