This Cinnamon Roll Smoothie tastes like a blended cinnamon roll! It’s packed full of nourishing plant-based ingredients, healthy fats, fiber, and protein, so you’ll actually stay fueled for hours! It’s made with easy, simple ingredients and tastes so cozy!
If you want an easy way to pack in some healthy fruits and vegetables, up your fiber or protein intake, or just need something quick and easy to make on busy mornings, this is for you! Smoothies and protein shakes are a great option when you’re short on time or just want a delicious way to get in a bunch of nutrients. With a sweet banana base, oaty texture, and dash of cinnamon, it tastes like a blended cinnamon roll. I even love adding a few of my snickerdoodle pumpkin cookie dough bites in for a little extra treat.
About this Cinnamon Roll Smoothie
Banana: Frozen banana gives this smoothie the creamiest texture! I like to cut my bananas into coins, place them in a bag, and leave in the freezer to make smoothies even easier.
Oatmeal: Because you’re blending them, any type of oats will work!
Protein Powder: Protein powder not only gives this smoothie a boost of protein, but it also can add a little sweetness, flavor, and creamy texture! You can leave it out, but I love adding a vanilla protein powder to this recipe! You can use code “amb-dani” on my favorite protein!
Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a nutrient-dense spice that I absolutely love incorporating into my diet and it gives this smoothie a super cozy feel!
Coconut yogurt: This not only adds creaminess to the smoothie, but it also gives it a cream cheese frosting feel! SO GOOD. I love the Culina Coconut Yogurt (I find it at Whole Foods!). Their vanilla flavor is perfect for this!
How to make a cinnamon roll Smoothie
Smoothies are the best because they’re so easy. You just chuck everything into your blender, blend, pour into your glass and go! Sometimes I like to layer mine with a little vanilla coconut yogurt to make it feel extra fancy.
Meal prep tip: You can measure out the ingredients besides the milk, in baggies and store in the freezer. In the morning, empty the baggie into a blender, add the milk, and you’re good to go! No need to spend time opening our blag of flax seeds, getting the yogurt out of the freezer, etc!
