Oats in shake?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I just toss a cup or so of Quaker Oats into my blender along with milk & protein powder, blend a bit and toss it down the hatch.

    One of my usual drinks includes:

    1 cup Quaker Oats
    1.5 cups Non-fat milk
    2 scoops whey protein
    1 serving of straberry bannana yogurt
    1 tbsp peanut butter

    BLEND - ENJOY


  2. Re: blending oats

    I assume most of us use oats (in place of other more refined carbs) to control insulin response and possibly allow for sustained energy.

    When we blend our oats (depending on how long/fine you blend the material), that dramatically cuts down on the surface area of the material and I would assume that would mean MUCH quicker digestion. So, are we really doing oats justice by blending? I mean, if I blend my oats into a fine powder, how is that much different than say powdered malto?

  3. oats in a blender with my usual after workout shake. Thats my breakfast! Don't have time for eggs and such. Plus there is a lot of stuff in my shake. Blend a little longer otherwise it would be like mud.

    Changing the shape and size of oats does not have any affect on absorption. Bobo addressed this a long time ago. I'd look for the thread but can't right now. Not only that but I remember him saying most absorption occurs in the small intestine anyhow so the speed of absorption is meaningless.

  5. I was able to dig up one of the threads..it isn't the long one I was thinking about, but its very informational anyhow..

    After workout shake...

  6. i had the same problem tryin to down a shake with oats...its like quick dry cement.....IMO try puttin 3-5 ice cubes in before the oats....it helps dice up the oats better and really helps with the thickness especially if your makin them awhile before drinkin..

    Yes, tossing a few ice cubes along with the other stuff into the blender helps. It basically "suspends" your oats do they all dont sink to the bottom.

  8. i know this is a little off the current topic, but i just cant get used to the taste/texture of cottage cheese. Ive tried it with fruit and its ok but i still dont enjoy it. My question is what do you think about throwing some cottage cheese in the blender with some protein powder. Ill prob do this in the evening.

  9. tru ^ advice on this would help me out aswell

  10. bump...i know plenty of you eat cc, and i really need help with this one

  11. If you dont mind carbs you can make some good tastin pancakes:

    1/2 cup oats (ground)
    1/2 cup f.f.c.c.
    4 egg whites

    toss in the blender for a matter of seconds of just use a handheld blender. Also, one of those blender bottles that nutra has that has the stainless ball in it might work well!

    Anyways...that makes some mean pancakes. If you dont want carbs, try:

    -fat free cottage cheese with some walden farms 0 calories fruit spreads

    -f.f.c.c. with some sugar free maple syrup
  12. oats


    I mix protein with damp slow cook oats and add a TBsp of honey after a w/o.
