Energy-packed no-sugar banana strawberry smoothie

No doubt, smoothies are a great, easy and healthy way to get instant energy. And what more, you don’t need to add sugar as the banana and cinnamon would add the necessary sweetness. To start with, I used to make this smoothie whenever I had excess bananas at home. I improvised a bit and tried variations and soon it became my family’s favourite.

Try this easy recipe and feel your energy levels rise.
