Cinnamon Bun Smoothie

Feel like cinnamon buns, but don't have the time to make them? This smoothie tastes like cinnamon buns, but only takes 5 minutes!

Cinnamon Bun Smoothie


We need to talk about cinnamon buns.

Cinnamon buns have been on my mind all week. It all started when I was walking through the mall. You know how it is..walking through the mall and you pass a Cinnabon. Who's bright idea is it to put a Cinnabon in the middle of the mall for everyone to smell? No wonder there is always a crazy long lineup.

To make matters worse, one of my friends has been buying cinnamon buns on campus every day, and eating them in front of me. Which only made me crave them more.

The problem is, I refuse to buy cinnamon buns. Why pay so much money for something I can make even better at home? Or maybe I'm just too poor to be spending money on everything that I'm craving? Let's just say it's the first one...

But the problem with the "making it at home" bit is that I have no time. Like, at all. Why do you think the last thing that I made was homemade peanut butter? Because it's just so simple. So what do I do when I have a cinnamon bun craving but no time?

Make a cinnamon bun smoothie of course! I have definitely done this last semester when I wanted some oatmeal raisin cookies.

Make everything into a smoothie. That is my new motto. Drink up!

  7. This so funny because I also have been craving some homemade cinnamon buns, too, so I'm glad I'm not alone. Never mind that I've never made them and I normally do not ever crave them. My husband thinks I'm a bit odd right now. : ) I need to find a recipe that makes like 3 buns or like you, be creative and make a smoothie. Very smart!
