Cinnamon Roll Smoothie
This morning I made a wonderful recipe inspired by the lovely Joanna, of one of my favorite blogs Promoting the Raw Food Diet while De-bunking the Myths.

another broken recipe link above...so sorry here is the recipe: Ingredients: - 2 cups Brazil nut milk (blend 2/3 c. Brazil nuts and a little vanilla bean with 2 cups water and 2 T agave nectar. Strain.) - 1 piece vanilla bean (about 1 inch) - 2 T agave nectar - 1 t cinnamon - 3 small frozen bananas - Dark syrup such as agave nectar or yacon syrup. Directions: - Blend all the ingredients together except for the dark syrup, which you will use to drizzle the inside of the smoothie glasses (optional but pretty!) - Pour the liquid into the decorated glasses, and sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top.
I took a little short-cut, and simply put the frozen bananas, a few Brazil nuts, cinnamon, vanilla bean, and a little water in the blender all at once:)
I drizzled some yacon syrup in the glass to decorate, as Joanna did. Next time, I want to try a swirl on the top:) I thought this looked so pretty when I first saw her post, I knew I would have to make it:)
Thank you so much, Joanna, for this wonderful recipe! It really does have all the yummy flavor of cinnamon rolls:)
