July 4, 2011

all american dough boy

There’s nothing quite like a nice, cold breakfast on a hot, hot day.  There are definite summer morning when I can’t bring myself to make a warm bowl of oatmeal.  Well, this smoothie/oats hybrid is one of my favorite go-to breakfasts.  It is also quite adaptable with numerous topping options just like a bowl of oatmeal.

And on this 4th of July, it made a very festive breakfast.

Dough Boy Smoothie from KERF 

makes 2 servings

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2T chia seeds
  • 1 banana
  • [lots of] cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Simply combine all ingredients into a blender (or glass jar) and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  Blend in the morning, adding more milk as needed for your desired consistency.

Top with your favorite toppings!  Berries, ground flax, nut butters, granola, jam…

Hope you’re all having a wonderful 4th of July!
