Oatmeal Smoothie is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CPTAMP from Amaranth isn't needed! I made this with 1/2 cup of Old-Fashioned Oats and no amaranth (and 1tsp of ground cinnamon instead of a stick), and it turned out great. I suspect you could substitute any fruit you have on hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tamiozzi from Breakfast to go! I wasn't sure what amaranth was, but found I could substitute quinoa for it. I assumed it needed to be cooked quinoa, but left the oatmeal raw. The overall flavor was okay, but I think it would make a great breakfast to go.
