creamy, healthy cinnamon toast crunch smoothie (bowl)

Winter or not, smoothie bowls have been my STAPLE breakfast meal for the past few months or so. Aren't I sick of them yet? Actually no. Keyah and I are constantly playing with different variations for smoothies in the kitchen- whether the smoothie ingredients themself or even the toppings, we're always changing it up!!

My personal favourite this winter is definitely this dessert inspired cinnamon toast crunch smoothie. It's packed full of protein, fibre and healthy fats. You could even add some sweet potato into the mix to make it that much more filling for breakfast or lunch (admittedly, I've even eaten this for dinner lol).

 This healthy take on cinnamon toast crunch cereal is one that gives me all the warm and fuzzy feels. Cinnamon has SO many health benefits so I try including it in as many of my recipes as possible. Some of cinnamon's most powerful benefits include; antioxidant rich, anti inflammatory properties, decrease the risk of heart disease and lowers blood sugar levels.
