There are few things that scream snowy winter morning like a cinnamon bun does. But starting your day off with a rich, decadent, calorie-rich breakfast will likely make you feel like crawling back into jammies and snuggling on the couch instead of powering through a busy day of work. So instead, try blending up this nutrient dense smoothie to energize your day.
