Cinnamon is the star of this delicious protein shake that tastes almost exactly like a cinnamon breakfast roll.
I’ve been on a huge cinnamon kick lately. I mean, seriously.
Morning, afternoon, night, right after a workout… I just can’t get enough.
Do you every get that way?
For a while I just crave one food all the time and feel like no matter how much I eat of that certain food (or flavor) I just want more and more.
Then after a few days, or weeks, or months, whatever, the craving subsides and I’m onto bigger and better things.
Anyway, this time… instead of just adding cinnamon to the shake, per usual, I wanted to make a shake where cinnamon was the star of the show.
It doesn’t take a lot of cinnamon to make it the star of this shake. And actually, if you’re not careful and you add too much, you will definitely know it.
I know because I did that, more than once and more than one shake ended up down in the drain because the flavor just wasn’t there or the cinnamon was like whoa.
After many failed attempts because of my desire to have that strong cinnamon taste, while not being to overpowering, I finally got it right.
Here we are with the cinnamon roll protein shake. It seriously tastes like a Cinnabon cinnamon roll.
Just. Like. It.
Minus the dough and warm frosting and add a blender and ice cubes. Plus, it’s much healthier for you! Score.
Of course I got the inspiration from my daughter.
I made some Cinnabon inspired cinnamon rolls for her for breakfast one morning and instead of digging in and eating the entire batch, I rained myself in and made this shake instead. It satisfied my sweet tooth and craving for cinnamon rolls.
Ok… I did have a cinnamon roll. But I didn’t eat like 4 like I usually do. This time I just had 1.
- Add all ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth and desired consistency is reached.
- If protein smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk or water to your taste.
