Ingredients

Banana cinnamon smoothie ingredients

Banana – Use ripe bananas to make the smoothie.

Make sure to freeze the bananas for a few hours to make a creamy smoothie.

Medjool Dates are loaded with nutrients and give the smoothie its natural sweetness. If Medjool dates are unavailable, use any variety of seedless dates.

Cinnamon – Banana and cinnamon pair very well together. Use best quality ground cinnamon for the best flavor.

Others – You will also need vanilla extract, Greek yogurt, and milk.

I used whole milk, but feel free to use any milk of your choice.

How To Make Banana Cinnamon Smoothie

Add the following ingredients to the jar of a high-powered blender.

  • 2 large peeled, sliced, and frozen bananas
  • 2 Medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup whole milk (full-fat milk)

Tip – If the frozen bananas are too hard, then thaw them for 10 minutes.

All the ingredients added to a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Add some more milk if the smoothie is too thick for your liking. Check for sweetness and add some sweetener (honey, maple syrup, etc) if needed.

Pour the smoothie into 2 serving glasses. Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon on top and serve immediately.
