Cinnamon Banana Berry Smoothie

By: Heidi Finger

With our abundance of strawberries, I decided it was time to whip up a fruit smoothie. In this smoothie I added cinnamon because I love the flavor with fruit. Cinnamon has multiple health benefits according to an article on It can help lower triglycerides, increase blood antioxidant levels, help regulate blood sugar, enhance cognitive processing, and even improve motor functions in Parkinson’s (Cynthia Sass, 2014). Here is the recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    1. Hi Gretka, I usually add ginger to my juices, sometimes my smoothies. Love that extra pop of flavor in there!
