What makes this a fat burning smoothie?
What makes this smoothie thermogenic, according to Dave Ruel, is a combination of little things. The carefully selected ingredients work together to create the fat burning effect.
When you drink a very cold drink, your body has to burn more calories to re-heat itself.
Chai tea: Aside from its metabolism boosting effect, chai tea is also rich in antioxidants and can help support a healthy digestion, especially when taken after meals.
Vanilla Protein powder: Because it takes your body longer to digest protein, it has a satiating effect that helps curb your appetite and keeps you feeling full for longer.
Protein is also an essential building block for your muscles. It helps repair your muscles after a workout.
Cinnamon – as Dave Ruel puts it – is a super spice. It is well known for its metabolism boosting effects. Besides its thermogenic properties it also has many other health benefits like balancing your blood sugar levels, supressing your appetite and boosting your immune system.
