Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a morning person. I think my alarm clock is evil, and I’m pretty much a zombie for the first 30 minutes after I get out of bed. I’m also very hungry, but I would be a slow zombie, so catching my food is out of the question. Smoothies to the rescue! They’re faster, tastier, and healthier than leftovers or pre-packaged breakfast foods. Or that giant cinnamon roll this Cinnamon Roll Smoothie recipe made me envision.

Basically, just imagine taking all the sweet, sticky, spicy indulgence of a fresh-baked cinnamon roll and cramming it into a glass. The only thing you can leave out is the guilt, because this Cinnamon Roll Smoothie is low-fat and packed with healthy fruit and oatmeal.

The Ingredients

This cinnamon roll smoothie has just 6 ingredients. That seems pretty average for most smoothie recipes, and I’m not sure my morning brain could handle many more.

I did remember to freeze the banana the day I came home from the grocery store. I’ve gotten into the habit of buying a bunch so I have fresh and frozen on hand. Then I place a few peeled and sliced bananas into sandwich-size ziplock bags right after I put all the groceries away. It’s fast, low effort, and I always have frozen bananas ready to go.

Cinnamon Roll Smoothie Ingredients
Cinnamon, vanilla Greek yogurt, frozen bananas, brown sugar, vanilla almond milk, and old fashioned oats

The Process

It’s a single step: Just put everything into a blender, push a button, and you have a cinnamon roll smoothie. There is no possible way a recipe could be easier to make. Even half asleep I had a smoothie made and poured in 3:30.

Adjustments

I found the banana taste overpowered the cinnamon. I recommend increasing the cinnamon to 3/4 to 1 teaspoon.

So how was it?

Taste
My cinnamon roll smoothie was good, but not great. It was sweet, and I really tasted the banana more than anything else. I ended up remaking it with a full teaspoon of ground cinnamon and finally got closer to the cinnamon roll taste I was imagining. The texture was on the thin side but also slightly chewy because of the oats. All in all, it was tasty and filling. I'll be making this again.
