The next time you’re shopping in the cereal aisle you might notice something different. Larry the Quaker Guy, that familiar face smiling at you from the front of the oatmeal carton, recently got a makeover. These days, he’s sporting a milk mustache as a friendly reminder that oats and dairy have long been good partners.
Quaker Oats and dairy farmers all over the country share the same goal: to nourish families through great-tasting, high quality products for healthy eating habits. Combine the two and you have an even more nutritious meal. So next time you cook up some oats be sure to add a splash of milk! They’re delicious together. And here are a few ideas to get you started.
9. The Elvis Oatmeal (add peanut butter, sliced banana, and cooked bacon bits)
10. Tropical Storm Oatmeal (add pineapple chunks, shredded coconut, and chopped macadamia nuts)
11. Campfire S'more Oatmeal (add crumbled graham crackers, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows)
Really, a bowl of oats is like a blank canvas. You can add almost any topping you like, from fruits and nuts to yogurt and cheese, or wherever else your taste buds take you. For more ideas on how to pair Quaker with Milk, visit QuakerOats.com.
