I made this recipe for my elderly mother because it provides a good dose of protein, whole grains, fruit and probiotics all in a cup that isn't overwhelming to her small appetite. Easy prep and clean-up is a bonus. She makes it for herself now, which is comforting to me. She said she likes to add the small cups of canned fruit or frozen fruit.
