Thanks to zucchini, which is a perfect ingredient for upping the volume and fiber of a smoothie without upping the sugar, and cinnamon, which has been shown to help balance glucose, this sweet breakfast will keep your blood sugar steady all day long. The addition of hemp seeds (and the fiber, protein and Omega-3s that come with them), as well as a fiber-rich apple, will help you stay satisfied until lunch.
