If you love cinnamon rolls, you will love this smoothie recipe! I had an amazing vegan cinnamon roll in New York that inspired me to make a smoothie flavored just like that cinnamon roll. This one is not so crazy loaded with calories and sugar as the vegan treat I had, but equally delicious if you ask me.
This cinnamon roll smoothie could not be easier to make. You just add all of the ingredients to a blender (or food processor) and blend until smooth. It helps if you have a more powerful blender, like a Vitamix, but a less powerful blender will work just fine if you add a bit more milk.
I added a sprinkle of cinnamon as a topping for a little boost of flavor. This smoothie is so creamy, smooth, and so delicious. And it tastes like dessert!
Lately, I have been sharing more and more of my food photography on Instagram. You can find all the stories under ”highlights” (not just for 24 hours), which was the motivation for me to share more tips. I also asked you guys which picture you like best in my Instagram stories: this smoothie recipe served in a glass or in a bowl? The smoothie in a glass was the winner of the poll, but I enjoyed the smoothie also in a bowl with a spoon (as shown below). How do you like to serve a thick smoothie?
