Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Smoothie –  incredibly healthy and delicious, this quick smoothie is the perfect breakfast to start off the day!

It’s a new year, and like most people I have decided to eat a little healthier this year and hit the gym a little more often.

 This is often very difficult because I am not the best at sticking to diets, because well let’s just admit it, the food often tastes a bit more like cardboard than anything else and also because I am simply to busy to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen whipping up healthy meals.

The thing I love most about smoothies is that they only take two minutes to make and you can pretty much  put anything into your blender and it always tastes good. This is great because the mornings are often a big rush and I don’t always have the time create an amazing healthy breakfast. Which means I often end up eating a sugary breakfast bar.

This Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Smoothie is great when you are trying to stick to a healthy eating plan. Every morning I quickly pop all the ingredients into my blender, give it a quick whizz in my blender and then my breakfast is done! That doesn’t sound too difficult right?

This delicious smoothie has a warm flavor from the cinnamon, which really makes you feel like you are eating cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and the oats and nuts will keep you full and powered up for any hectic day ahead of you. You can also choose whether you want to make it with brown sugar, or the slightly healthier version which is coconut sugar.

    I made this smoothie for breakfast this morning and split it with my husband. He doesn’t care for yogurt in anything, but he liked this! Thanks for sharing!

    I have some oats that I have been wanting to use up. This smoothie looks like the perfect thing to do that.

    This sounds delicious!
    I can’t eat pecans, though – do they just make the smoothie a bit thicker, or are they just for flavour? Is there any non-nut alternatives I can put in instead?
    I’m assuming that skim milk will work in lieu of almond (as a matter of taste preference)?

      The pecans add some fiber and protein as well as flavor; if you can have any nuts, substitute with what you like; or, try adding flax or hemp seeds or omit altogether if needed. And yes! The skim milk will work as an excellent replacement. :)

    With a little less milk &  yogurt, & lack of blender,  this would make great overnight refrigerator oats!

    Someone asked about substitution for the nuts.  I actually didn’t have any pecans at home so I used 2Tbsp. of sunflower seeds.  Tastes terrific.  I also am using up some rye flakes that I have here and have mixed those up with the oats.  This is so yummy!  Thanks for the recipe.

    I don’t like nuts or Almond milk. Can I use regular milk instead and omit the nuts?

      Absolutely!
