A collection of my favourite recipes & remedies from Mexico and around the world.

A Quick Fix: Oatmeal, Honey, Amaranth Shake

A great snack or quick breakfast if you are on the go and don’t have time to prepare or cook something more substantial. I often have it around lunch time when there is nothing that i fancy in the fridge. It is filling, tasty and full of goodness.

Oatmeal is slow release energy and full of fibre, while amaranth is a good source of protein, containing up to 30% more protein than most other grains. Amaranth is also a rich source of the amino acid, lysine, yet it lacks amino acids that are present in other grains and cereals making it the perfect companion to the oatmeal in this recipe. Wheat germ contains 23 different nutrients, read about it here.

You can use cows milk, soy milk, almond milk or any kind of milk you like for this shake.

To make a 250ml serving:

250ml milk of your choice
1/4 cup oats
2 tbsp amaranth
1/2 tbsp of wheat germ
1-2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. First of all put the oats in a blender and blend til fine and powdery. Pour it into a cup or bowl.
2. Add the milk to the blender along with the honey, the  blended oats, the wheat germ, cinnamon and a couple of ice-cubes to make it really cold, blend til smooth.
3. Pour into a glass, top with the amaranth and enjoy.

  1. Love oatmeal & honey… like that glass even more!

    • Haha, thank you! That glass is the only remaining of all the glasses, i have been going through a breaking EVERYTHING stage the last year or so 😦 Really need to invest in some pretty, strong plastic ones, although drinking out of plastic just isn’t the same.

  2. And no cooking? I love the idea. Thanks.
