Banana Bread Smoothie

When I think about naming a smoothie, I think about the ingredients, but I also think about the promise I’m making to the end-taster. If I promise a pumpkin pie smoothie, and it tastes vaguely of pumpkin and nothing like pie, that’s not a good thing for anyone.

This week, I’m promising banana bread. I will say that I had one Smoothie Club goer this week who said he could taste the spinach, but not another soul of the 30+ people I fed smoothies to this week mentioned anything but delicious banana bread. I think the secret ingredient is the almond butter. I used top quality, fresh ground almond butter, and it give it that rich, bread-y feel. It’s great.

If you want more cinnamon in your smoothie, feel free to add it. I’ve even been known to add a drop of top quality, food-grade cinnamon essential oil (just one drop is enough) to my morning smoothie. It works like a charm — and is good for your blood sugar too. Just don’t overdo it. Cinnamon is a heating herb, and you don’t want to add too much heat to your system if it’s not needed.

On with this month’s delicious smoothie club recipe!!
