Not too long ago, I was asked to try out new Quaker Breakfast Shakes. Since we’re always looking for new things to have for breakfast that also taste good and have some nutrition, I said: Sure, why not?
So they sent me some samples of both the strawberry and the chocolate flavor shakes. Since it’s been really cold around here for quite some time, the shakes were nice and cold when they arrived on my doorstep, so we didn’t need to wait for them to chill in the fridge.
TJ was really interested in giving these a try so, I had to share them with him. He was an instant fan.
I’m more of a chocolate fan so I preferred the chocolate flavor. It’s super chocolaty. The texture wasn’t too bad either, and I had been a little worried about that since the shakes contain Quaker Oats. But the shakes weren’t too thick or gritty at all, which is a big win for me. Me and my texture issues.
TJ, however, really enjoyed the strawberry flavor. He’s always been a huge fan of strawberry milk – or as he used to call it, “pink milk.” But he was quite happy to have either of the flavors. I’m not sure if I was supposed to get two shipments of the breakfast shakes, but I did. The first shipment, TJ and I shared half a bottle each. The second shipment, TJ commandeered both shakes for his own breakfast enjoyment.
Nutritionally speaking, Quaker Breakfast Shakes have:
- 8 grams of whole grain oats,
- 10 grams of protein,
- 6 grams of fiber
- 200 calories.
200 calories really isn’t all that bad for breakfast. It’s certainly better than a 300 calorie donut or my 400+ calorie chocolate chip muffins that I so enjoy. I’ve heard rumors that you can freeze the shakes to make your own “skinny fudge-cicles,” too.
The people from Quaker also gave me a link to a digital coupon to share with my readers. You can try Quaker Breakfast Shakes yourself with this $2 off digital coupon. If you do give them a try, let me know if you like the chocolate for the strawberry ones better! I’m Team Chocolate all the way.
