The Healthy Mummy uses cinnamon in loads of recipes and not only due to its amazing taste, but also due to its fat burning properties.

Here are a few easy ways to use the powers of cinnamon to help you on your weight loss journey.

12 delicious recipes with cinnamon

Cinnamon is a widely used ingredient in weight loss recipes

The brown spice is used frequently in weight loss recipes for added flavour and because of its weight loss benefits. Fat burning foods can come in many flavours, colours and textures, and cinnamon is an old spice originally used as a healer and perfume!

Now, as a fat-fighting food, cinnamon is a great spice to add to your healthy recipes!

Cinnamon can improve blood sugar, insulin activity, blood pressure, and improve wound healing. Also, in winter, cinnamon can be used as an antioxidant to help ward off those pesky winter colds!

Using cinnamon in your Healthy Mummy smoothie can stabilise your sweet tooth while giving you a sweet tasting smoothie that keeps you fuller for longer.
