At least that is what happens to me every time I drink this smoothie!
Sometimes, and this is not very often, I don’t feel like coffee in the morning. Instead, I crave the yummy deliciousness of this banana smoothie flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I use whole milk vanilla yogurt, which makes it filling enough for breakfast.
Before I moved to New York, I made this smoothie at work for the girls in my office, and I wish they were here right now to drink this with me! I once foolishly called this a “winter” smoothie because of the warming spices. Of course, this was before moving to the frigid north east. When the temperatures are in the negatives, no amount of warming spices will counteract the ice in this drink, so I’ve been smoothie-free all winter until this week when the temperature managed to climb all the way to 45 degrees. I’m regretably turning into one of those people who says it’s warm out just because it isn’t cold enough to freeze to death.
Enough about the weather, let’s get to the smoothie making!
Banana Smoothie Recipie
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt (Stonyfield and Mountain High are my favorite not-too-sweet brands of vanilla yogurt)
- 2 bananas
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon allspice
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 8-10 ice cubes
Throw everything into a blender and blend until thoroughly combined. Serves two.
Of course, I always think things taste better when enjoyed in something vintage, in this case a Federal Amoeba glass. It’s almost too pretty to drink… maybe I should put it on display instead!
