Green Cinnamon Smoothie

Green Cinnamon Smoothie

This Green Cinnamon Smoothie is one of my favorites-- so many good things combined in one glass. It gets its green color from spinach and matcha powder, which is a great energy booster for breakfast. Matcha is a green tea powder that's especially high in antioxidants and doesn't make you jittery like other caffeine sources can. This is a great way to get an extra serving of vegetables/greens in your day too!

Ingredients
 
  • 1/2 a small banana

  • Handful of spinach- 1/2-1 cup

  • 2 medjool dates

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted almond butter

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Instructions

Just combine all ingredients in a blender.  I use a single serving style blender and that works just fine.  Enjoy!
