The basic ingredients
Oat flakes 3-4 Tablespoons
Milk 200 ml
Flaxseed 1-2 Tablespoons
Low-fat quark 250grams
The shake is really simple to make. All that you need is a mixer. Put all the ingredients into the mixer. Wait until the mixer is finished. Before you start, don´t forget to close the cap of the mixer.
If you haven’t got a mixer you can use a hand-held blender.
The advantage is: You can decide the flavour yourself every time. Your fantasy does not have to have limits
Try the difference between a shake from a fast food restaurant and the low fat shake yourself. You will be surprised.
