Apples and cinnamon might be one of the best combination of fruity, sweet and spice. This combo is delicious in dessert dishes, as a topping on oatmeal, and can even be used to make a crave-able martini! While relaxing poolside with your family, or even having a healthy picnic in the park, try mixing up a refreshing Apple Cinnamon mocktail – and don’t forget to drink tons of water.
Alcohol metabolizes at a much quicker rate than most other foods that we ingest, which means that our bodies, when alcohol is present, will use the alcohol for energy and leave the carbohydrates to turn into stored body fat. For this reason, alcohol can cause weight gain and can be a major inhibitor to weight loss.
While on the SlimGenics Program, and for best results with your weight loss efforts, it is not recommended to consume alcohol; however, it IS recommended to continue having fun with different foods! Which is why we love this recipe for an Apple Cinnamon Slimtini.
Did you also know that cinnamon can also help regulate sugar metabolism? This helps to control the level of sugar (glucose) within the blood stream, making it a perfect garnish for this sweet Apple Cinnamon mocktail.
