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.

I think I'll give this oatmeal smoothie ONE MORE TRY. This time, I'll try adding chocolate protein powder for more flavor.

I nuke the oats in the micro for a couple minutes with water, then throw it in the blender with cold milk, a banana, vanilla extract, dash of salt and honey to taste. It's a magnificent brekky. I don't have time to let the oats cool, the cold milk balances it to room temp for me.

I needed more flavor so I threw in a banana and that fixed it. Very good that way.

I've been putting a couple tablespoons of oats and a little flax in my smoothies for a long time. You don't even notice it and it adds whole grain and fiber. I haven't cooked the oatmeal first (didn't seem necessary), but I might try that next time.
