Start Your Day With a Smile: Banana and Coconut Milk Smoothie

Did you know that bananas contain tryptophan that our bodies convert into serotonin? In other words, bananas can make you relax, feel happier and really improve your mood! 
I love to start my day with this mood-uplifter smoothie! Its creamy texture and delicious taste guarantee a satisfaction beyond words!
I prefer to use either the small Greek bananas, a variety that is cultivated in the island of Crete or organic ones. The large, perfect-looking commercial bananas are usually full of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and nematocides, such as Aldicarb (a chemical that is really-really toxic). So if you want to put a smile on your face... better do it in the right way!!!
Coconut milk again can be full of preservatives that you can just avoid if you choose an organic one and preferably not one in a can.
Cinnamon is pretty safe...as far as I know!!!

So here is the recipe:

2 small or 1 regular banana (you may freeze it ahead for a more ice-cream/milk shake effect)
350 ml coconut milk
1 full teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon honey (optional) 

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend really well. You may also blend it with a bit ice if you like.
Enjoy right away and keep smiling!!!
