I came across this delicious way to feel good about indulgence Mindbodygreen the other day. Rachel Druckenmiller, a Culinary Nutrition Expert named 2015’s #1 U.S. Health Promotion Professional by the Wellness Council of America turned the buttery, cinnamony delights of a snickerdoodle cookie into a healthy smoothie featuring the natural nourishment and energy of tahini (sesame paste), hemp seeds, and cinnamon.

Serves 1 to 2

1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 Medjool date, pitted
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Pinch of sea salt

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy, about 45 to 60 seconds. Serve.
