Cinnamon Roll Smoothie Recipe

Cinnamon is a healthy, tasty and excellent spice for your smoothie life.

And taste? What beats a warm cinnamon bun dripping with icing on a fall afternoon? (Nothing. Nothing at all.)

Health Benefits of Cinnamon

cinnamon will lower your blood sugar levels, reduce heart risk factors and treats a wide range of other body problems including muscle spasms, infections, colds, and diabetes.

Since it's early winter in Melbourne we thought we'd cover one of our favourite cold-weather smoothies and one we regularly make. 

The recipe below (and each of our recipes) is formatted for MyFitnessPal.com and can be copied & pasted into their manual recipe importer to save time in tracking calories.

This recipe makes 2 servings of around 250 calories, 13g of protein and just 3g of fat each. They are definitely not low-carb as the yogurt & rolled oats add quite a few carbs.

    • 1 cup, Vanilla Almond Milk
    • 0.50 cup, Vanilla Greek Yogurt
    • 0.25 cup(s), Old Fashioned Oats
    • 1 serving, Bananas, medium
    • 1 tbsp packed Brown Sugar

    • 1 scoops, Vanilla Protein Powder

 

As with most smoothies you just put it all in your blender/Vitamix/Bullet and blend it smooth. If you aren't using frozen bananas just toss in a handful of ice to give it that frozen smoothie texture.

Some recipe adjustments to try

 

  • Too sweet? Use a less ripe banana or go to 1 tsp brown sugar.
  • Too milky? Add a bit more cinnamon or use riper bananas.
  • Don't like greek yogurt? Use plain vanilla yogurt and add 2 scoops of protein powder.
