Breakfast on the go? This quick shake is healthy and delicious!

My daughter loves Avena and requests it for breakfast at least 3 times a week. It’s nutritious, high in fiber, lowers cholesterol and tastes delicious! Avena is a very popular cold beverage in many Latin countries, here’s my healthy skinny version. You can even double it and call it a meal.

  1. This is delicious, but more importantly, it REALLY helps if your suffering from some persistent heartburn. I have been in pain all morning, but I read that oats and lowfat milk help, so I remember you had a recipe for an oat smoothie and it has really calmed down the acid while also filling me up with a nice, small meal.

  2. Absolutely delicious and satisfied my picky toddler!! Thank you so much, sending it to my mama friends 🙂 

  3. Can you add fruit in this? Like half a banana or some strawberries, wondering if it would work well.

    Great healthy delish drink for a cold winter morning. I used old fashioned rolled oats. A nice switch from my regular oatmeal. Thank you.

  5. I’ve been making this for weeks as a quick breakfast. I’m obsessed! It’s so simple and delicious. Thank you Gina for getting me out of the sugary baked goods for breakfast rut!

  6. As a Queens, NY girl born to Colombian parents, this was an amazing treat that reminded me of my childhood. It was refreshing and tasty. Will definitely be making this again!

  7. Just made this and I agree with your daughter. It’s delicious. Is the nutrition info correct? I add sugar so I know there’s got to be sugar data but not sure if the rest is accurate. Thanks for another fantastic recipe.

  8. Oh my goodness! This is so tasty and simple. I made it on a hot summer day and the day before your rice and beans. I’m blown away. Can’t wait to try more recipes.

  9. This is delicious and was my favorite breakfast or snack after having a baby. A sprinkle of cinnamon on top made it look like a fancy frothy iced coffe drink. I would sip this cool refreshing drink through a straw while nursing my baby and always looked forward to having it! Yum, have made it for many new moms and everyone loves it!

  13. I just finished making this for myself and kids and its very tasty! I used Almond Breeze Coconut Almond milk and it was very delicious. I only had old fashioned oats ,so I blended them well before cooking and then followed the directions.

    Oatmeal shakes are always a good idea when you're trying to diet. They have a lot of nutritional value to offer someone, my mother used to make them for me all of the time.
