Remember this smoothie made from cooked oatmeal?
And this SIAB heavy on the raw oats?
Both were incredibly DOUGHY and I haven’t stopped thinking about them!
Last night I had the idea to combine the doughiness of overnight oats with a smoothie – to create a doughy smoothie!
I made it right in my Vita-mix and then put the whole thing in the fridge to soak. Then this morning, I blended up the overnight oats…
And voilà! A dough smoothie!
Dough Boy Smoothie
For TWO smoothies
- 1 cup raw rolled oats
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 banana
- Sprinkle cinnamon
- Splash vanilla
- Pinch kosher salt
Combine all into a blender, stir and put in fridge overnight. In the morning, add about 1/4 cup more milk (just to loosen things up) and whirl away. Top with favorites!
I added Hail Merry Orange Cinnamon Grawnola – which was AMAZING combined with the slight cinnamony smoothie. Plus a to-go packet of Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, which drizzled on very nicely, and coconut.
I’m gradually cutting back on coffee in anticipation for the warm spring day when I say “Enough!” It always happens!
Busy day ahead. Tomorrow we are leaving on our FINAL Great Harvest training trip – this one to the Columbia, MD bakery to learn + observe with the awesome sister pair of owners! The week ends with a visit to my grandmother in Towson, along with mom, sister and Matt! After this trip we have no plans of traveling until the cows come home!
