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.

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.
