This Christmas recipe for Santa’s Cinnamon Roll Smoothie is one example.
A word from Charissa
We all know that during the holiday season, there are a lot of those sneaky calories that we don’t really get to see or think about. Being mindful when it comes to balancing those festive treats with something just as tasty less the hidden calories, will not only satisfy your sweet tooth but give you the opportunity to have a balanced festive celebration.
These easy-to-make simple Santa’s Cinnamon Roll smoothies are ideal for breakfast, or as a dessert alternative. You can even get the kids involved – by just telling them it’s Santa’s favourite smoothie, they’ll be sure to want to try it!
