Recipe Redux Post # 43: PB Cookie Dough Smoothie in a Bowl


February’s Recipe ReDux is “Break Out of Breakfast Boredom” and we were encouraged to share how we “wake up our breakfast” calling upon our creativity in the kitchen.  I have made many smoothies recipes before but I have never made a “smoothie in a bowl “ version so this challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity.  The key concept to smoothies in a bowl is that they are thicker, which means it is best for you to serve them in a bowl and eat them with a spoon!  Frozen banana is one of my mainstays for a smoothie base so I used a large sized one, combined with less milk and added oats to thicken things up.  Adding some peanut butter, vanilla and a touch of brown sugar gave the smoothie an amazing flavor reminiscent of cookie dough!!  Topping it off with chocolate chips makes for pure heaven. I hope you will give it a try and also check out all the other awesome breakfast recipes from the great Recipe ReDux crew.

Ingredients:

1 large frozen banana, cut into chunks  
½ cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk which works great)
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 packed teaspoon packed brown sugar
1/4 cup oats
a pinch of salt
1- 2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips


Directions:

Blend all of the above ingredients for 30 sec-1 minute on high speed until a smooth mixture is formed. Pour into a bowl and serve with a spoon.

Makes 1 smoothie, one serving
