Cinnamon buns are tempting, but one large roll from the mall is a whopping 880 calories, 17 grams of saturated fat, and 59 grams of sugar! If you’re craving all the flavors of the classic, then try blending up this fiber- and fruit-filled smoothie that’s less than a quarter of the calories, with hardly any saturated fat whatsoever.
If your days of calorie bombs and sugar crashes are in the past (or you want them to be!), try this simple-to-make smoothie recipe.
