Cinnamon Roll Smoothie Recipe
One of the best things about smoothies is that there really are no limits to what you can do with them. From light and fruity to rich and creamy, the variations are absolutely endless. Another great thing about them is that they’re like dessert, but much healthier.
No matter what your favorite dessert is, from a banana split to pumpkin pie, you can whip up a smoothie version of it in minutes. Throw a few ingredients in the blender, hit the button, and boom! Dessert in a glass.
So it should come as no surprise that my newest recipe is for a cinnamon roll smoothie. 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.
A cinnamon roll you can sip through a straw. You can’t beat that-but you can blend it.
Note: If you do not have frozen fruit to use for the smoothies, fresh fruit will work just fine. If using fresh fruit, make sure to add a handful of ice to the other ingredients before blending. The frozen fruit just adds that cold element to make an ice cold drink.
