How'd it Taste?

I like the concept, but even though the nutritional information does not mention it, this smoothie is VERY high in sugars, some of it added (honey, strawberry yogurt), and some naturally yet sweet (dried cranberries). I would use the recipe as a starting point for something much less sugary.

How many grams of grain is in this smoothie?
This recipe contains about 80g of whole grain (the weight of 1 cup of quick oats). Keep in mind that this recipe makes 2-4 servings of smoothie, so it yields 20-40g of whole grain per serving.
