Jillsberry Dough Boy

Just a forewarning, I’m going recipe crazy in this post. I can’t hold it in any longer! ;)

Last night, Joe and I ate smoothies for dinner. I’m finding that I have become more and more creative with them since I have been forced (hardly) to make smoothies for dinner because they are quick and easy after a late work day. I don’t mind smoothie bowls for dinner and thank god, neither does Joe! I complained to him through texts for the first half of my morning yesterday because of my commute, so I told him that I owed him a big fat smoothie bowl when he gets home. I ended up making this for myself.

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 scoop (1/2 c?) no salt added low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • 1 c. frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • pinch xanath gum
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp. Hershey’s dark cocoa powder
  • Stevia to sweeten

I pretty much through everything but the kitchen sink in there, blended it up, and topped it with Bob’s Red Mill wheat germ and Crazy Richard’s peanut butter. If you leave the natural kind out its nice and gooey and you can ooze it all over the top!

Then, Joe wanted berries, so I was thinking something sweet and vanilla would go perfect.

  • 2 scoops Vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup lactaid milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (he questions these but I told him it would be ok)
  • splash vanilla extract
  • pinch xanath to thicken
  • stevia to sweeten

While I blended this, Joe took out a huge bowl, put a dollop of fat free cool whip, sprinkles, and blackberries. I poured it over the top at his request. The chia seeds almost made it look like vanilla bean! I took out the PB and he didn’t hesitate for a second. Nice topping, I must say! He then said “I know, I know, I won’t eat until you get a picture!” How cute! ;)

I didn’t put the blender away just yet. I wanted to try Kath’s Dough Boy Smoothie in the AM. I took a spin and added the following to the blender;

Jill’s Berry Dough Boy Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • half banana
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
  • sprinkle cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • splash vanilla
  • pinch kosher salt

I blended it up and let it sit overnight in the fridge.

Workout & Breakfast

I did a 30 minute ab workout and a 50 minute incline walk/run interval workout on the treadmill. As soon as I got home I plopped the mixture in the blender with a little bit of milk and poured it in a bowl.

The cinnamon was definitely key. I was a little hesitant, but that is what really makes it taste like dough!

Next time, I think I will change the milk to oats ratio before blending. I should have put more oats/less milk to make it a little thicker, but it was still super yummy! I can already think of a million ways I want these! Chocolate, PB, Banana, the possibilities are endless!

Who’s watching the royal wedding tomorrow? Hopefully it’s on at the gym! Some people I know are going to bars at 6am to watch it. Craziness!
