This Cherry Almond Cinnamon Green Smoothie is a huge hit amongst the entire SGS team!

It’s creamy, decadent, and tastes like a fruity milkshake. Bonus—did you know that cinnamon is one of the healthiest spices around? Packed with antioxidants, cinnamon helps balance blood sugar and may also have positive effects on immunity and digestion. Just one more reason to love this fun, fall smoothie!

You can’t beat a smoothie that’s full of nutrients like this one. It includes:

  • Tons of dietary fiber to keep your digestive tract happy.
  • Plenty of antioxidants, including vitamin E (from the almond butter), vitamin C (spinach and cherries),
  • Anthrocyanins in the cherries help protect the heart
  • Minerals like iron and calcium (spinach), potassium and boron (banana and cherries)
  • Naturally occurring melatonin in cherries to keep your sleep on track

Not a fan of cherries? No worries, this smoothie is equally delicious and healthy with blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries.

    Made this tonight and it was delicious!! I didn’t have any bananas, but I did have a peach that needed to be used –and for me it was a perfect swap. (My husband added a little vanilla flavored protein powder to his glass and said it enhanced the flavor from the cherries.)

  2. AletaRei Gordon says:

    This is a very tasty smoothy. Nutty with a touch of sweetness. I’ll surely make this one again.

  3. Christy says:

    This is just what I wanted this morning. This smoothie is so delicious! 5 stars!

  4. Stephanie VanSant says:

    I’m sipping this smoothie right now…and YUM! I didn’t have any almond butter on hand, so I added a handful of raw almonds and blended them with the almond milk and spinach. This is delicious! I’m excited to include green smoothies into my day. My goal is to have one instead of reaching for that cup of coffee in the afternoon. Thanks for the yummy recipes!

    I have everything but bananas. What can I use instead of banana?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Roni,

      Not a fan of bananas? I’ve got you covered! Some great substitutes are mango, papaya, pears, unsweetened applesauce, chia seeds, nut butters, fresh dates, + avocado (won’t add sweetness, but the creaminess we love).
