The kids and I just love cinnamon and there is plenty of it here in this Oatmeal Cinnamon Smoothie with Oatmeal Cookie Crumble.

Did you know that cinnamon has many health benefits?
It’s loaded with manganese, fiber and calcium and has been shown to aid in controlling blood sugar and clotting and has anti-microbial properties. Research has also shown that the scent of cinnamon boosts brain activity.

Cinnamon is my ALLTIME favorite flavor!! I consume it daily. I think your smoothie is gorgeous and sounds so amazing with the cookie crumble on too. YUM. I love that you didn’t skip on the cinnamon either! I have a cinnamon cookie recipe coming very very soon. Cinnamon has so many health benefits too. My favorite is Saigon cinnamon, so incredibly flavorful and strong.

I LOVE Saigon Cinnamon too, but it’s not available in most grocery stores around here. I have to make a special trip. Honestly, I could have added MORE cinnamon for my taste, but I know most people think it’s a pretty strong flavor so I tried to hold back. 🙂 Can’t wait for your cookie recipe!!
Natalie @ Feasting on Fruit says
I think you just recreated one of my favorite cookies in a smoothie! Don’t mind if I add some raisins 😉
Sophia @veggies dont bite says
YUM!!! This looks so good!! I love smoothies and oatmeal cookies so why not put them together?!
Jenn S. says
Right? Cinnamon, smoothies, oatmeal…what’s not to love?! Thanks, Sophia!
Linda @ Veganosity says
Yay for cinnamon! It’s pretty amazing. When my dad had Alzheimer’s I did tons of research on foods that promote cognitive healing and cinnamon was one of them. This smoothie is perfection. Pinned!
Jenn S. says
Good to know, Linda! Alzheimer’s runs in my husband’s family. It is a devastating disease. The whole reason I got into plant based eating in the first place was to try to be as preventative as possible when it comes to disease. Both my family and my husband’s have a history of a variety of diseases. Hoping to stop it in it’s tracks HERE! Thanks for pinning!
