Cinnamon Roll Smoothie -- refined sugar free and vegan

Here’s how most of the smoothie recipes on my blog are created — everyone’s hungry, I need to come up with something fast, without a big mess because I’m really not in the mood to clean anymore, and there’s not a lot of options in the refrigerator.  They don’t always turn out great, but there’s always a possibility a new favorite will be created.  Thankfully, the one I threw together on Thursday afternoon to hold everyone over to dinner was a keeper!  I poured it between three glasses — one for myself and one for each of my girls.  It didn’t give us a full glass, but enough to sip on…or, so I thought.  In about 5 seconds, all of our glasses were empty and screaming for more!  Success!!

I can’t believe I never tried this combo before!  We all deserve a cinnamon roll for time to time.  :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Excellent Smoothie! I made this this morning before my workout because I didn’t want to have anything too heavy. It was perfect. Next time I make it, I will chop up the date, today I just threw it into the blender in two halves and it got stuck on the blades. Thanks for the yummy recipe.

Woah! Really delicious recipe! I didn’t have almond milk so I used vanilla rice milk, 2 dates and eye-balled the cinnamon. Definitely a keeper!

Yum! My husband added frozen spinach, and we couldn’t even taste it. We’re adding this to our green smoothie rotation. :)
