Vintage Recipe: Breakfast In A Glass

About This Recipe:

According to the 1959 magazine advertisement that shared this recipe, "Breakfast-in-a-glass (was) a new way to enjoy oatmeal on warm summer mornings. Cool, refreshing. Tastes like a milk shake. Lusciously flavored with fruit... with all that wonderful oatmeal protein." The ad was a joint promotion for Quaker Oats, Mother's Oats and Blue Star. It offered a special price on a hand-crank mixer that was specifically designed to make Breakfast-in-a-Glass.

Tired of the same old bowl of oatmeal? Try drinking it instead! This vintage recipe combines cooked oats, milk and strawberries to make a refreshing smoothie. From 1959.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
