Smoothie bowl, anyone? Here we have a delicious cinnamon roll smoothie bowl for you to add to your list of breakfast ideas. This bowl of goodness is the last of our cinnamon roll inspired recipes for a while. Hopefully, we’ve given all lovers of cinnamon rolls some new ways to enjoy the delicious flavor of the legendary baked good.
Slow Down with a Smoothie Bowl
I absolutely love to drink smoothies. However, I usually end up hungry shortly after drinking one. Smoothie bowls are heartier and more filling. In an effort to cut down on snacking and stop grazing all day, I look for more filling meals. Breakfasts that leave me satisfied without counting down the minutes until lunch are winners for me.
Sitting down with a spoon and a smoothie bowl also encourages more mindful eating. It’s so easy to aggressively slurp down a smoothie while multi-tasking or on-the-go. With a smoothie bowl, you have to focus and be a lot more present while eating. Instead of racing out the door with a cup in hand, take a moment to sit at the table to savor the goodness.
As with our other cinnamon roll inspired goodies, the swirl is what makes it so visually appealing. Smoothie bowls are typically quite gorgeous, but the swirly yogurt topping levels it up to irresistible. One can definitely consider this an Instagram-worthy breakfast shot.
Don’t Skip the Chia Seeds
The topping of this smoothie bowl contains chia seeds, and that’s not just because they look cool. Tiny chia seeds pack a big nutritional punch. Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Read more about the benefits of chia seeds here.
