Cranberry Dough Boy Smoothie {Revisited}

Good Morning!

I did manage to stay up past 8pm last night, but barely.  I was most definitely asleep by 10, and the BOY joined me shortly afterwards.  I guess we were both exhausted after this busy weekend.

 

For breakfast, I made a Cranberry Dough Boy Smoothie.  I know it’s not exactly cranberry season, but this cool, hearty breakfast is perfect for a refreshing morning meal.  I found fresh frozen cranberries at the Jewel (local grocery store) and was eager to add these powerhouses to any breakfast.  Since I hadn’t had a Dough Boy in awhile, I was definitely in the mood for one.

I made a Cranberry Dough Boy Smoothie back in December during cranberry season, but this morning’s breakfast was SO tasty and satisfying, I thought it would be worth revisiting in the spring.

Unfortunately, I grabbed the ONE bowl with a chip, which is not ideal for pictures, but I guess that’s life  ; )  I figured you would be focusing in on the rich smoothie and not the bowl anyways.

I ate my breakfast quickly (man, those cranberries are good and the banana adds just the right amount of sweetness) before getting ready for this mornings yoga class.

I hope you have a great Sunday celebrating Dad!

If you have some leftover cranberries, you should think about making Dad a batch of these incredible muffins!
