Health Benefits of Cinnamon

Cinnamon is commonly cultivated in four different varieties, any of which are fine for this recipe. According to Healthline, some of the major health benefits of cinnamon are:


Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are essential in the fight against free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for damaging cells and have been linked to certain diseases and cancers. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals.  


Studies have discovered that cinnamon possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon may help to reduce swelling and pain in joints and tissue. The natural reduction of inflammation can be attributed to the antioxidants found in cinnamon.  

Lower Blood Sugar Levels

Cinnamon has been shown to lower the blood sugar level in the bloodstream after a meal. Cinnamon stimulates certain enzymes in the stomach and gut, reducing the absorption of sugar. An extreme reduction in blood sugar has been shown in several studies.

Preparation Tips for a Sweet Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe

  • Pre-measure the almond milk, Greek yogurt, and honey
  • The liquid ingredients can be premixed together, though this is not necessary
  • The JuicingJournal team recommends pre-crushing the ice before blending the smoothie. Pre-crushing the ice allows for a much smoother blend. Sometimes smoothies can turn out crunchy if your blender struggles to crush ice. 
  • Always use a blender strong enough to pulverize ice when making smoothies.  
  • Top your smoothie with a dash of cinnamon for aesthetic value. You put time and effort into making a healthy drink; make it as good-looking as possible!

Weight Gain Options

Wanting a high-calorie smoothie instead of the low-calorie version. Consider adding whole milk yogurt and whole milk to your sweet cinnamon smoothie recipe.

Whole Milk Yogurt

Whole milk yogurt can be an easy source of additional fat and calories. 

Greek yogurt is traditionally a low-fat alternative. If weight gain is your goal, use a full-fat yogurt to hit your nutritional needs. Many readers also prefer a full-fat vanilla yogurt for an added touch of sweetness.

Whole Milk

Whole milk can easily substitute almond milk to boost calories and fat. Substituting whole milk for almond milk will have very little effect on the taste of the recipe. Whole milk contains almost two more grams of fat and eighty additional calories per cup than almond milk.

Optional Flavor Enhancements

If you are looking for some more adventurous flavors for your smoothie, several additives can completely change the taste of your drink. Most people are bound to have these simple ingredients in their kitchen cabinets.  

Apple Pie Spice

Apple pie spice is an easy enhancement to the sweet cinnamon smoothie. Nothing tastes better than freshly baked apple pie. Adding a pinch or two of apple pie spice to this recipe will take your smoothie differently. The JuicingJournal staff recommends adding a small amount of apple pie spice to begin with and adding more if needed. Too much spice can overwhelm the flavors of the smoothie.  

Brown Sugar

Adding brown sugar to the recipe instead of honey can dramatically change the flavors of this smoothie. Like apple pie spice, brown sugar reminds your taste buds of Fall and winter. Try adding brown sugar to your sweet cinnamon smoothie next time you make one!

It is easy to see how cinnamon, with its known health properties, is the primary ingredient in a health-conscious smoothie. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top of your smoothie and start enjoying the many beneficial properties of this wonderful spice today!
