This Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Smoothie is a great way to start your day off on the right foot! I am a huge advocate of smoothies — mainly due to the number of nutrients packed into each sip. After a workout, your body needs to refuel, and this smoothie is loaded with protein plus flavor.

Here are a few more smoothie recipes you should try: Mango Banana Healing Smoothie, Blueberry Superfood Smoothie, and the Chocolate Strawberry Power Smoothie.

Creamy Vanilla Cinnamon Smoothie

I have incorporated many more strength training exercises and cardio in my workouts as I’ve gotten older. This is a big change from my prior routines that were more focused on heavy weight lifting.

Adding this protein powder to my post-workout smoothies along with my modified workout plan has me feeling great and my muscles looking lean. It’s a win, win. It’s tough to build muscle without a fair amount of protein, and the Bob’s Red Mill Almond Protein Powder has 20 grams of protein each serving.

Ingredients you’ll need to make this smoothie:

smoothie ingredients
  • The avocado not only provides the creaminess needed for the perfect texture, but it is also loaded with potassium and vitamins.
  • The cinnamon brings the spice along with antioxidants. It decreases your blood sugar levels and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • I like to use raw, unfiltered honey because it improves wound healing, helps treat coughs, decreases risk factors for heart disease, and of course, it tastes great.
  • Vanilla flavored Greek yogurt is awesome for gut health. Plus, there added vanilla flavor enhances the taste of the smoothie.
  • I wanted to incorporate as much vanilla as possible, so I added vanilla almond milk in the mix to bring everything together. Not only is almond milk low in calories and sugar, but it is a great source of calcium. You can substitute low-fat milk in its place if you prefer.
