Strawberry Banana Smoothie is a classic smoothie combo. But this recipe has a touch of honey and cinnamon for added nutritional benefits and flavor!

There I was at work, on my break, browsing through the overly priced items at our hospital gift shop. My eyes stopped at the magazines. I know right, a real shocker! I had most of the food magazines on the shelf, except for the newest Food Network one. So I picked it up along with some Worther’s Originals. So out the door I went spending five dollars and something just to occupy my time– for when I wasn’t on the clock, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As I flipped through, I passed lots of “to try” recipes that I bookmarked with little pieces of white paper. And then it happened. I had an idea. Okay, well with a huge thanks to the magazine. There it was, in the center of the magazine, a tiny booklet that said 50 smoothie recipes. I love smoothies! And since my new year resolution is to eat less bread (I know, please pray for me) you can imagine how my breakfast options have dwindled. So with that thought… I LOVE SMOOTHIES!?!

To kick off the first “smoothie” recipe I didn’t want to do anything crazy… or to weird. So we are keeping it simple and smooth… get it? lol. This recipe came from the Food Network booklet in my magazine this month, and since it was second on their list, I thought why the heck not? Strawberry and banana is a pretty safe combination, no? But have you ever added cinnamon to your smoothie? or honey?


Banana, strawberries, honey… oh my!


Ice is soooo key to a thick smoothie… so if you have any frozen fruit, i.e. bananas or strawberries, just keep them frozen for an extra thick drink!


Next add the vanilla yogurt… doesn’t matter what kind as long as it’s vanilla!


Add the honey…


… and some cinnamon… just a very small pinch though.


Next goes the chopped banana.


And then the straaaaaaaaaawberries. I’m a sucker for strawberries too!


Pour in the milk.


And blitz it until smooth!


Pour into glasses.


Deeeeeeeeelicious! Now drink …and be berry! lame? sorry.

Enjoy! And if you give this recipe a try, let me know by snapping a photo and tagging me on twitter or instagram!
