Warm Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie

If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.





  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp almond or cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses, or local honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Place the milk, oats, cinnamon and nut butter in the blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Gently heat on the stove and add the molasses, ginger, vanilla and salt to taste, stirring well.
  3. Pour into a coffee mug and drink warm.

  1. It seemed very thick so I might add some more almond milk to thin it out some. Otherwise delicious one suggestion if you like it a little sweeter add some equal or Splenda to the mix I think you can also substitute powdered peanut butter for the almond

  2. Hi Sal,

    This is a wonderful recipe. I loved this so much that I featured it in my best of post 11 Warm Smoothies For Winter.
    I have not shared the exact recipe, only one image from here, a small quote and all credits given to you and linked back to this page.

    Have a fantastic day!

  3. Couldn’t you add all ingredients and run this in the blender for a longer time period until warm instead of heating it into a saucepan and adding the remaining spices at that time? Does it break down or adversely affect their flavor?
