There's something special about a snickerdoodle cookie. The combination of the buttery, crispy edges and soft and chewy, cinnamon-dusted, melt-in-your-mouth center is something to be savored.
What if you could take the incredible flavors of a snickerdoodle cookie and put them into a smoothie?
After quite a bit of experimenting, that's what I'm here to offer you today: a Cinnamon-y Snickerdoodle Smoothie. Not only does it taste amazing, but it's nourishing and fueling, too.
The tahini (sesame paste) in this smoothie is a good source of calcium, iron, heart-healthy fats, and protein. It also adds to the creamy texture. Hemp seeds are another source of nourishing fat and plant-based protein that help boost our energy.
Cinnamon is the signature ingredient in snickerdoodles, a naturally sweet-tasting spice that helps stabilize our blood sugar, which is key for sustained energy and mood. If you're looking to change up your smoothie routine, you have to try this cookie-based copycat!
