30 Smoothies in 30 Days (Day 3): Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

After my smoothie fail yesterday, I decided to play it safe today and make one of my favorite comfort smoothies: cinnamon roll smoothie. This smoothie taste like dessert. It is creamy, thick, and if you enjoy cinnamon rolls, this smoothie is a great way to get your fix.

This cinnamon roll smoothie is easy to make and even easier to drink. I’ve been making this one for about a year now and I come back to it again and again when I need a sweet tooth craving met. It’s not packed with superfoods or greens. It’s simple, has complex carbs, fiber, and still manages to pack a nutritional punch of vitamins A and K. I highly recommend this one.

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy immediately. Feel free to garnish with oats and more cinnamon. A fancy presentation makes a fancy drinking experience after-all.

I believe in big hair and and live by the 5 (sometimes 10) second rule when food falls on the ground. I want to create a greener, simpler life for my little family while at the same time sharing everything I eat, yoga poses I try, and ideas about life with my smartphone attached to my hip. I'm sort of a hot mess living by the motto "fake it until you make it."
