Creamy Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

January 6, 2021

I’ve created a Cinnamon Roll Smoothie that actually tastes like a cinnamon roll, and it also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan friendly, too!

I have a smoothie of some sort almost every single day; whether for breakfast, snack, or post-workout, I find that smoothies are a super quick way to pack in lots of nutrients – quickly! And, if you make them right, they are so damn good and refreshing. 

Here’s what you need to make this Cinnamon Roll Smoothie

To make this smoothie, you need a few simple ingredients:

  • Gluten-free oats: I like using gluten-free oats because gluten-free anything is almost always easier for me to digest. If you don’t have an issue with gluten, you can use regular oats. You can use quick cook oats or regular oats, it doesn’t matter. However, do not use steel cut oats, because it’s too hard and won’t blend up nicely in this smoothie.
  • Bananas: I almost always use frozen bananas in my smoothies, and that’s because it provides a nice, natural sweetness, and bananas are rich in potassium. Don’t fear them!
  • Frozen cauliflower: Okay, so this is optional, but I’ve been sneaking frozen cauliflower into my smoothies for years. It was a trend a few years ago, that really stuck. Why? Because you can’t taste the cauliflower in the smoothie, and it’s a great way to sneak in an extra serving of vegetables, without even trying. Plus, it makes for a creamy smoothie.
  • Cashew Butter: I love using cashew butter in this smoothie, both for the taste, but also to get those healthy fats in. You can substitute for any other nut butter, but just note, if you use peanut butter, it won’t really taste like a cinnamon roll smoothie anymore. But it will still taste amazing! Sunflower seed butter is another fantastic option if you are avoiding nuts.
  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt provides lots of nutrients, and lots of flavor, but you can also use any dairy-free yogurt as well. Just be sure to pick the plain flavor, because the extra sugar isn’t needed in this smoothie.
  • Coconut sugar: A real cinnamon roll uses brown sugar, so if you want to use brown sugar, by all means, go for it. Otherwise coconut sugar it is!
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract is the secret ingredient here, because it’s not something that’s typically used in a smoothie recipe. But that’s what makes this taste like a baked treat instead of a plain, boring smoothie!
  • Cinnamon: Because all cinnamon rolls need cinnamon.
  • Almond milk: You can use any non-dairy milk of choice in this recipe. My go-to is always just almond milk, because that’s what I always have on hand at home.

Are there any special step needed to make this recipe?

Nope! This recipe is as easy as it gets. All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender, and blend until your desired consistency is reached. Depending on the size of the bananas you use, how much cauliflower, etc., you may need to add a little more liquid to the smoothie. Just play around with it!

  1. This is probably the most decadent smoothie I’ve ever had and I’m a HUGE smoothie fan to begin with. I followed the recipe exactly as is, cauliflower included, and wow. Sooooo yummy!!!!! Even my incredibly picky 18 month old loved on it.

  2. 5 stars
    This tastes like dessert, it’s so delicious and satisfying! I added the frozen cauliflower to get in some veggies. Plus added a scoop of collagen and a scoop of chai flavored protein powder.
