A simple banana cinnamon smoothie full of fall-inspired spices!
Smoothies are often thought of as a summer drink. This is probably because they are cold and so refreshing on a hot summer day. But what about those of us who want smoothies year round? How can we transition smoothies from summer flavors into the fall? The answer lies in the spice drawer.
"simple banana smoothie that highlights some of falls best flavors"
We created a very simple smoothie that highlights some of falls best flavors- nutmeg and cinnamon. These warm spices are often associated with the fall and they happen to pair wonderfully with the flavor of banana. Both cinnamon and nutmeg have warming qualities and are subtly spicy. They add a nice kick to the otherwise sweet drink.
You may also want to try this smoothie as a bedtime beverage. Bananas have been shown to help your muscles relax. When your body is able to relax, you will be able to easily slip into a deep sleep. Ground flaxseeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids which can increase the levels of serotonin in your body. More serotonin also means better regulated sleep. A banana spice smoothie right before bed is sounding better and better!
Whether you pour a big glass of this smoothie for breakfast or enjoy it as a night time drink, we know it is a recipe you will adore. With this smoothie recipe on hand, you can enjoy smoothies well into the fall while sticking to those seasonal flavors we all love! Enjoy.
