- 2 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 cup plain yogurt (Greek yogurt or non-dairy alternatives work too)
- 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, depending on your sweetness preference)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Ice cubes (optional)
Prepare the Ingredients:
Peel and slice the ripe bananas.
Chop the walnuts.
Blend the Ingredients:
In a blender, combine the sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, plain yogurt, milk, honey or maple syrup (if using), ground cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
If you like your smoothie colder and thicker, you can add a handful of ice cubes to the blender.
Blend Until Smooth:
Blend the ingredients on high speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If the smoothie is too thick, you can add more milk until you reach your desired consistency.
Taste and Adjust:
Taste the smoothie and adjust the sweetness by adding more honey or maple syrup if needed. You can also adjust the cinnamon and vanilla to suit your preferences.
Pour the smoothie into glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
Optionally, you can add a banana slice or a walnut on the rim of the glass for a decorative touch.
Sip and enjoy your Easy Cinnamon Banana Walnut Smoothie! It’s a nutritious and flavorful drink that can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a snack, or even as a dessert alternative.
