Banana Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe
When it comes to smoothies, my husband prefers things on the sweeter side. So that means most of the drinks I make for him contain banana. We always prefer to use honey as a sweetener in our smoothies because it’s loads better for you than sugar. We get organic, local honey from his little cousin who sells honey to raise money for her college fund. Isn’t that precious?
Honey has lots of good for you vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. It also boosts energy and helps build immunity… so why wouldn’t you want to use it as a sugar substitute whenever possible? And if you’re watching your calories, it’s still a good option. Honey is sweeter than sugar, so you can usually use less of it to attain the same sweetness.
While you could easily drink up the entire amount you get from this smoothie yourself, I split this with my husband. I’m doing Weight Watchers this year in combination with making healthier food choices, so I’ve gotta be careful with those points. Would it be helpful to add the WW points to the smoothie nutritional information? If you’re interested in that, let me know in the comments.
Here’s the yummy Banana Cinnamon Smoothie recipe you’ve been waiting for.
