How to Make This Cinnamon Bun Smoothie

Start by getting out all of your ingredients;

  • bananas
  • oats
  • non-dairy yogurt
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • flax meal
  • almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)

Then fill your blender the way your blender directs you to.

For this recipe I used my nutri-ninja, the order I placed the ingredients were in the same order as I listed them above, starting with the bananas.

For a nutri-ninja, the liquid goes in last.

If you’re using a vitamix, add them in using the order here;

  • non-dairy milk
  • vanilla
  • non-dairy yogurt
  • bananas
  • flax meal
  • cinnamon
  • oats

Then blend for about 45 seconds, in 10 to 15 second intervals if using a nutri-ninja (use the Auto-IQ BLEND button).

If using a vitamix, it may not need the full 45 seconds, but at least 30 seconds, starting at 1 and then slowly increasing to 10.

Enjoy immediately once done blending!!

Q&A’s About Smoothies You May Have…

Can you put cinnamon in smoothies?


I don’t like putting cinnamon in really fruity or citrus-like smoothies.

But, they go great in smoothies that have oats, bananas, and non-dairy yogurt, like this recipe.

Cinnamon in smoothies would also pair nicely with;

  • apples and oats smoothie
  • pumpkin smoothie
  • pear and oats smoothie
  • and more!

What can replace Banana in Smoothies?

My kids and I LOVE BANANAS!!!

Seriously, we go through so many bananas in a week that my husband calls us monkeys.

But, he can’t stand bananas, even in smoothies.

Yet, I know how many nutrients and how beneficial smoothies can be in anyone’s diet; so I’ve had to be creative to get him to drink them…without complaining about bananas.

Some banana replacements for smoothies;

  • avocado (by far my husbands favorite replacement)
  • cauliflower
  • pumpkin
  • sweet potato
  • coconut cream
  • rolled oats
  • yogurt
  • quinoa
  • mango
  • silken tofu
  • pineapple
  • pre-soaked cashews
  • and even beans!

Should you put yogurt in a smoothie?

Honestly, it depends on the type of smoothie you’re having and why you’re considering adding it and how you want your smoothie to taste.

I understand that non-dairy yogurt isn’t cheap, unless maybe if you make your own. I don’t know, I don’t make my own.

So, if you’re worried if your smoothie won’t be complete unless it has yogurt in it; don’t be!

This recipe is one of very few recipes that I use that uses non-dairy yogurt; most of the recipes I make don’t need it.

For this recipe though, YES, you do need yogurt in it for it to taste the way it is intended to taste.
