Dough Nut

It’s been ages since I’ve made a Dough Boy Smoothie! But last night one was calling my name. The essence of them is that you make soaked overnight oats in the blender and turn it into a smoothie in the morning. The texture is thick like a doughy batter!

My bowl was nearly overflowing! I made this recipe – Strawberry Cheesecake Dough Boy Smoothie – and topped it with blackberries, crushed graham cracker and sunflower butter (my coconut butter is doing a strange separation and I can’t get it to work – must melt it next time).

Served with some freshly brewed cold coffee concentrate. Good!

Have a bright and beautiful day!

I haven’t had one of your Dough Boy Smoothies in a while either. Guess this is a good time to make another one. Love the strawbs one.

I had overnight oats this morning and haven’t tried the dough boy smoothie yet… now I wish I still had them so that I could throw ‘em in a blender! Oh well- there’s always tomorrow morning. :)
It looks like that smoothie is about to go overboard!

I want to run over and hold the one side of the bowl up to keep it from tipping! :-D Enjoy your Tuesday!

I’ve never tried one of your dough boy smoothies but that strawberry cheesecake one seems to be calling my name. Looking at the recipe now!

I really need to try this one day. Right now I love doing a quick, thick oat mixture with raw oats, protein powder, almond milk, and various flavors (pumpkin, cinnamin, etc.). I mix it into a think pudding and let it sit for an hour. Awesome doughy mix!

How fun is that breakfast! Love the presentation…all the colours…that tea towel is gorgeous!

I’ve never tried the overnight oats that way. I should give it a try!

Gorgeous colors for this somewhat gloomy morning!! The smoothie looks delicious!

your breakfast certainly looks bright and beautiful! I have to try the dough boy smoothie soon… I do love cookie dough… and I love overnight oats. I’m sure it would be a win.

happy tuesday!

This looks and sounds perfect for this morning! I’ve been making my oats a little on the runnier side and then adding protein powder to the top of them and swirling it in. It makes doughy pieces in my oats! My favorite addition to that is blueberries (tastes like a blueberry muffin) and pumpkin!

That’s SO strange – I woke up Monday morning and suddenly had a HUGE craving for a dough boy smoothie bowl and was so sad I hadn’t set it up the night before! Then I forgot again! I think I gotta go prepare mine for tomorrow right now :)

16 Andrea July 10, 2012 at 9:08 am

I love how it filled your bowl to the brim! When I made your pumpkin smoothie that was the first time I used graham crackers as a topper… and now I loveee using graham crackers to top things! Graham is definately one of my favorite flavors. Have a great day :)

17 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 10, 2012 at 9:13 am

Ooh I remember these and you’ve also reminded me that I need to try them!! I love my smoothies nice and thick and had a perfect one this morning. You know it’s gonna be a good day when the consistency is just right! ;)

Ooohhhh I have to try this soon!! Happy Tuesday :D

19 Claire July 10, 2012 at 9:24 am

Yum! Coincidentally,I had almost the same breakfast this morning! I had oats soaked overnight in unsweetened chocolate almond milk, and then blended with frozen banana, a fresh peach and a bit of flax. I even put sunflower butter on top!

20 Emma July 10, 2012 at 9:25 am

I can’t believe I still haven’t tried overnight oats – those look great, especially with the graham cracker pieces and sun butter!

21 wesley @ the way home July 10, 2012 at 9:34 am

Yummm that sounds awesome. Reminds me of cream of wheat or oat bran. I never ever would have thought of that!

22 Grace July 10, 2012 at 9:41 am

Just got my all my wisdom teeth removed and have been living off these! I modified your recipe a little and actually use less oats, more goat whey instead of milk, greek yogurt, and no chia seeds (I’m afraid they’ll get in the holes!). Plus blended nectarine to go with the banana :)
Let’s just say they’ve been hitting the spot! Thanks for the inspiration and happy Tuesday!

What an interesting breakfast! Love graham crackers…one of my favorite cookies! A cookies and cream dough boy would be great! With oreos and chocolate syrup on top! Or maybe cookie dough…with chocolate chips and some kind of nut butter.

25 Khushboo July 10, 2012 at 10:02 am

Definitely keeping this in mind for those mornings where I’m rushing to eat my overnight oats!

Reply

26 Erin @ erinberries July 10, 2012 at 10:07 am

That is a really cool idea. I’ve never made overnight oats, but I like the idea of eating something with a dough like consistency in the morning! Can you do overnight oats with steel cut oats or does it have to be rolled oats? Then, care you able to blend them to have the same result for the dough boy smoothie?

Reply

27 KathEats July 10, 2012 at 10:22 am

I don’t think the steel cut have the surface area to really absorb liquid enough to be soft in the AM – but if you’re going to blend them, then it might be fine?

28 Erin @ erinberries July 10, 2012 at 10:25 am

Thanks! I might research it a bit more too. :)

29 Working Girl @ Caffeinated Contentment July 10, 2012 at 10:49 am

That looks like the PERFECT summer breakfast. I’ve been meaning to try one of these – so easy and portable! And your presentation makes it look even more appetizing, if that was possible…

30 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats July 10, 2012 at 10:51 am

I made a dough boy smoothie once almost a year ago and it didn’t turn out so well. I think I’ll have to try again this summer seeing as I’m much better now at making oats and smoothies! Looks delicious!

Overcast skies today here, but the sun is peeking out. We could use a little rain, though, to help green the grass and such.

Fill us in on the ratios for the brewed cold coffee concentrate that you’ve ended up with after you have it down to a science. I want to start doing it but not at 2/3 c ground coffee at a time…gets a little pricey!

Reply

33 KathEats July 10, 2012 at 12:20 pm

Today I did about 2/3 c. and 1/3 water.

34 Ellie@Fit for the Soul July 10, 2012 at 12:03 pm

wow time flies by!!~~I remember you used to make these a lot like, a year ago? And I followed the recipes and gave it a try! I really liked it too–but I’m just used to eating more “chunky” meals for breakfast. :P When it gets hotter here I’ll def. have some.

This is deliciously yummy, perfect for breakfast with coffee. Oh, I love it! I’ve gotta try this out at home.

I love how bright and cheerful your breakfast spread is! :) I’ve never had a dough boy smoothie. I should try making one. It looks delicious!

40 Katie July 10, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Oh that smoothie looks scrumptious! I don’t know if I could handle that much sugar first thing in the morning though. Is it horribly sweet? I’m just trying to watch my sugar intake :)

Reply

41 KathEats July 10, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Not at all – there isn’t any sugar in it other than fresh strawberries and blackberries. Leave out the graham cracker if you don’t want that.

42 Susan July 10, 2012 at 3:27 pm

What kind of blender do you use? Do you like it? I swear that I always buy sucky blenders. ;-)
