I have begun making my own Gainer shake using a recipe from this site, and for the 1st time I tried putting in oats. As many times as I've tried, I can never seem to tolerate the taste of eating oatmeal, so I expected the shake to be awful...but it was really good!
I blended the oats in my Vitamixer briefly until it was like a powder, and then added the milk, whey protein, peanut butter, banana, glutamine/creatine, and ice cubes. I hardly noticed the oats at all, but since the Vitamixer pulverizes the oats, won't it be processed in the body more like a simple sugar? Maybe my logic is wrong?
