The perfect smoothie for a pre or post-workout meal; this vegan banana smoothie is made up of only 4 ingredients, these being:

Literally as simple as peeling the banana, pitting the dates, adding some cinnamon and milk in a blender and blitzing.
Can you put cinnamon in a smoothie?
It may seem a bit farfetched to think to add cinnamon in a smoothie; it complements the sweetness of the banana so well and adds a much-needed spice that truly makes this smoothie awesome.
Cinnamon is great in smoothies, it helps add a nice undertone, also rich in antioxidants – helping improve poor circulation too!
Cinnamon is banging in a smoothie. It complements banana very well too, you’d know if you’ve tried our homemade vegan banana bread recipe.
What’s the difference between banana shake and banana smoothie?
Banana shakes tend to be more on the sweet side, containing ingredients such as ice cream, and vanilla extract. Whereas with banana smoothies you’re looking more at a drink solely made of fruit, a pinch of cinnamon and plant-based milk.
Banana smoothies are essentially the better option vs banana shakes in terms of nutrition, getting more of a nutritional bang for your bite (or sip!).
Banana smoothies are healthy as they are rich in an array of vitamins and minerals. The potassium and vitamin b6 in bananas help feed your energy stores and get you up and ready for the day.
Potassium is particularly useful for regulation of muscle contractions and beneficial for those who live an active lifestyle. The combination of banana and dates provides you with a powerhouse of nutrition.
We hope you enjoy this simple cinnamon banana smoothie recipe. Satisfyingly sweet and great for your health.
