Because who doesn’t like the amazing aroma AND TASTE of cinnamon rolls hot out of the oven?

Oh and because after working with Quest Nutrition a few weekends ago, I ate one of their Cinnamon Roll protein bars..and once again was reminded that I can make healthier alternatives to the things we all love..like this Cinnamon Roll “Milkshake”! (video coming soon reviewing my weekend at Playlist Live!)

I mean, after creating that cookie dough blizzard and my Chocolate Covered Strawberry Milkshake..oh and my mocha cheesecake milkshake..how could I not make another?!

Have you guys seen that Silk has come out with CASHEW MILK?!

CinnamonRollShake

It is just like almond milk, but made of cashews instead! I bought the unsweetened version because of being so interested in what it would taste like, and it was amazing! A hint of that delicious cashew taste, and superrrr creamy.

That’s when I decided I was going to incorporate this extremely creamy cashew milk into making that delicious and creamy taste of a milkshake..in cinnamon roll flavor! And of course, then I had to add some cinnamon roll quest bar pieces in the form of my favorite way of enjoying them..baked in crispy little pieces 🙂

Mmm. So glad I did.

Question for YOU

1. When was the last time you had a milkshake?
