Great points and so true about the low floor ness of this task. On its own, it wouldn’t be that helpful for grade 5 students out of the gate. However, as a means to explicitly introduce concepts like ratio and rates as well as to have them working flexibly to find fractional scoops for glasses, etc can be helpful! Sounds like you’ve got some ideas in mind to extend. Good luck!
