This is from a Quaker Oats recipe pamphlet titled Food Fiber & Fitness. It states in its introduction, "It's smooth and creamy like a shake, but weighs in at a lean 85 calories." I think the oats give it a malted quality (taste and texture) while the hint of coffee adds an adult element. I think it's a nice breakfast drink that two people on the go can easily share.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a blender (I use the Magic Bullet), blend oats about 1 minute, stirring occasionally (using the Magic Bullet, I don't need to stir it).
  2. Add remaining ingredients; blend on high speed about 1 minute or until smooth.

Thank you so much for posting this. I am just starting to try adding shakes to my diet and was getting bored. The oats are a nice change. I felt the shake wasn't as balanced as I was looking for though so I added 1/2 a banana (instead of sugar), 1 tbsp coconut oil to get some heathy fat and to feel full longer (slightly heated and drizzled in while blending), vanilla protein powder instead of the vanilla, and I used coconut milk because that is what I had. I'm not sure I should even review this with all my substitutions but I was so happy to get the idea for the oats I had to say thanks! Oh I also used Starbucks via for the coffee. 1 packet of the Italion Roast will probably work great for you coffee lovers.

Made for a night time snack when I wanted a coffee "something". Used unsweetened coconut milk (what I had) Not bad!! I would just have to say that since I like things sweet I definitely had to add sweetener. Used Sugar free maple syrup (a bit of it) I would also up the coffee a little next time. Over all good idea!

Nice quick breakfast when you are on the run. Made as written and agreeing with other reviewers do need to increase the coffee powder just a little. Also agree with the description that the oats give it a malt flavor. Thanks so much for the quick and easy breakfast for those of use on the run.
