Berry Spice Banana Nut Smoothie

The other night we were craving a late night treat. Something cool and sweet, smooth and crunchy. So what did we decide to make? A berry spice bannana nut smoothie! The blueberries and strawberries were the perfect sweet treat for summer. Add a heaping scoop of crunchy natural peanut butter and chopped almonds on top and you get the perfect crunch to smooth ratio. The dash of cinnamon tickled our tastebuds with each slurp and will definitely tickle yours! Happy double dipping!
