Banana Dough Boy Smoothie!

Overnight ingredients:

  1. 1/3 cup oats
  2. 1/2 cup milk
  3. 3/4 frozen banana
  4. Pinch salt

I put them all in the blender to soak overnight.

In the AM, I blended them up and added crushed graham cracker, Groovy Granola bar and sunken sunbutter.

Hey Kath! Yummy breakfast. How many calories do you think you eat each morning for breakfast?

Reply

2 KathEats January 17, 2012 at 9:28 am

400-600. This was probably in the high 400s.

The 60* thing is AWESOME! It is 57* here in Ohio, but it is pouring down rain and very windy! Not so much fun for outside playing.

Delicious looking breakfast! Once I get a blender, I’m trying this! Enjoy the warm weather! I’m jealous :)

I need a doughboy breakfast in my life soon – I never have time to blend in the morning (yeah, that extra 20 seconds is out of the question). :)

10 Mattie @ Comfy and Confident January 17, 2012 at 9:30 am

Yum! that looks so good. I love the addition of graham crackers, they are the tastiest little treat. It is like half cookie, half cracker!
It is snowy where I am with a high of 30. I hope you enjoy the warm weather!

Ahhh I’m so jealous of your warm weather! I really need to leave Chicago… haha only a year and half left of law school.

12 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 17, 2012 at 9:31 am

YUM! We have a high of 7 today (a whopping 45) but that’s warm compared to this past weekend. I’ll take it! :)

Try fruit toppings! Blueberries. Also, raisins and cinnamon make great toppings and sprinkled loose rolled oats.

14 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 17, 2012 at 9:40 am

Yum! I cannot wait to make my shake. Just got done a workout and a doughboy sounds good to me!

Our temperature is swinging back up…all this up and down with the temperature is bananas! It was so creepy looking outside this morning…all misty, dark and rainy. My run was very messy.

16 HRCK the Herald January 17, 2012 at 9:44 am

Yes please I’d like batter for breakfast!

I have a question about your “squiggly line” approach– after a big weekend like this past one, do you actively try to make a few days of dips in the line, or do you eat just as normal (or maybe find that your body wants a few lighter days)?

Reply

17 KathEats January 17, 2012 at 9:48 am

I’ll probably skip alcohol/desserts and any extras this whole week for the squiggly, although sometimes subconscious like you say – I crave healthy food after a vacation

OH how I wish those mugs were at least 24 oz. I’d buy them all up! <3

Graham crackers + sunbutter are one of my favorite snacks. I need to try them in my oats!

“Like batter?” That was rhetorical right?

22 Cait @ Beyond Bananas January 17, 2012 at 10:01 am

Still very chilly up here! I would love some warm weather! We had a wintry mix this morning.. but not enough for a snow day.. or even a delay!

Reply

23 Kristen @ Change of Pace January 17, 2012 at 10:18 am

This weather is so strange! Isn’t it supposed to be chilly in January?! The high here in NC today is 68*. WHAT?! Your breakfast looks delicious as always :)

24 Cait's Plate January 17, 2012 at 10:18 am

Gah! I’m so jealous! I woke up to a blanket of snow! Play outside extra for me :)

PS – Mint cookie tea!?!?! I WANT THAT!! Does it taste like thin mints??

27 Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles January 17, 2012 at 10:47 am

I’ve been really in to tea lately – I go through phases – but I’ve been liking the standard types, probably because I don’t have fancy flavors like mint cookie tea! Yum! =)

I usually eat my breakfast at work since we have to be here at 6:30. You have inspired me to make overnight oats in a jar and bring it with me. I had made them before, but today was the first day I brought them with me. So easy! Thanks!

I woke up to a couple of inches of snow here in Boston and had have my hot oatmeal this morning, but that does look yummy.

It’s snowing and freezing here in Chicagoland. Blah. I love your mug!

35 Chris January 17, 2012 at 11:58 am

Love your smoothies Kath! Maybe you could make a separate category for them? You know, “rainy day smoothies,” (gee it just started raining as I’m typing?) “clean out the freezer smoothies,” like you’ve done for oatmeal. What’s the best blender do you think?

Reply

36 KathEats January 17, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Hey Chris!! I should do a smoothie page…

But in the meantime, you can find them all by searching for the SIAB (smoothie in a bowl) tag: http://www.katheats.com/tag/SIAB

Or the set recipes on my Recipage: http://www.katheats.com/recipage?search_term=smoothie&ui=26

That looks like a big old bowl of goodness! And your photo style is always great.

38 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning January 17, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Alright, you’ve convinced me. I’m trying this one out. I made an attempt at a dough-boy smoothie over the summer, but I don’t think I let it soak overnight. I also didn’t have my Vitamix then. I’d have to see if it could survive my 20 min. commute in the morning also, as I like to eat when I get to work, rather than at home.
It’s warmer here, but super rainy!

Hey girl, for the non-expert oatmeal people (but I’m trying to get that way), which kind of oats to use? I know I see a picture of it but can’t see if you used the steel cut or the whole oats. :) As usual I love referring to your blog when I need a recipe. :) you can reply here or email just as long as I know I got a reply. :)

Reply

49 KathEats January 17, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Hey Susan!

I use old fashioned rolled oats from the bulk bins. Or Quaker Old Fashioned, which are even doughier! Sometimes I cook with Coach’s Oats too (http://coachsoats.com/)

Doughy oats? I’d love to add some chocolate chips or peanut butter to make it cookie-like :D
