This was a breakfast staple in my house growing up. I can claim no credit for coming up with the wonderful recipe. It's all my mom's creation... and what a creation, indeed! She had something like this at a restaurant once and worked diligently until she had recreated it to her liking.

I really like this dish because it is refreshing and filling. And it's easy to make! Just be sure to serve it right away as it doesn't hold well because the oats tend to get pasty over time. Add whatever fruits and grains you want to make it your own. It's a blank canvas waiting for your inspiration.


1 Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup milk
1 TBS sugar
1 TBS lemon juice
1/8 cup light cream
3/4 cup quick oats
1 banana
1/4 cup raisins
3 TBS peanuts

Blend an unpeeled, cored half of the apple with the milk until smooth and frothy. Add remaining ingredients. Stir completely. Add any other fruits or grains that sound appealing. Grapes and peaches are especially good. Serve immediately or it can become pasty.
