Craving a freshly baked cinnamon bun without the guilt? Try this cinnamon bun smoothie it tastes just as good without the extra calories. The banana and oats make up the bun, for the “filling” we used dark chocolate and some almonds.

Besides the distinct smell and flavor cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and lowers blood sugar levels. Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70-85%) can be very nutritious but should be consumed in moderation.

You can add some maple syrup to taste.
