PersonallyI hate oatmeal but it is known to lower cholesterol and be good for the heart.  No matter how I tried to doctor it up I could not get it down.  Well now with my nutribullet I now eat oatmeal regularly.  If you just add it in, it is hard and crunchy which is fine if you like it that way.  I put 1/4 cup in a cup add hot water over it just to cover.   Let it soak in and cool off, in the meantime get whatever fruits and veggies you want that morning and add the oatmeal.  By adding oatmeal I tend to stay fuller longer.  Hope this is helpful, especially for oatmeal haters.  =)

Helma, are you using Irish or steel cut oats or the old fashioned rolled oats? For Irish oats or steel cut, you will need to soak overnight to soften and release the phytic acid that may block absorption of some nutrients and also to help ease their digestion. The old fashioned, rolled oats have actually been steamed before rolled so they are easier to digest without soaking. However, if they do pose a problem, soaking may help! I love the way oats make my NutriBlast thick. And you can't even taste them. Although I love oatmeal :)
I've read that oatmeal is even more effective health-wise when mixed with vitamin C, too. So maybe another boost for oatmeal in a blast?!

Vitamin C is often added to a food with non-heme irona and/or calcium to help increase their absorption. This could be what you are referring to. Luckily, there are fruits and veggies rich in this vitamin (strawberries, kale, citrus, broccoli, pineapple, kiwi, etc. :)

Perfect! Enjoy :)
Thank you for posting the oatmeal information. I actually love oatmeal, but never thought to add it to my Nutriblast :-)
Can you use Quaker oats in your nutriblasts?
can I use the oatmeal in my nutriblast if I am doing this 6 weeks weight loss program in the book?
Helma - thanks for the tip on oatmeal. I love it and was wondering how I was going to incorporate it into my drinks. I just received my NB on Saturday.

If it calls for it in the recipes.
DO you heat the oatmeal mixture after you blast combination or have it cold? Sorry..I'm a newbie and trying to get some ideas for breakfast.

Most people add raw oats as a "boost" to their Blast. This lends a thicker texture with added fiber and nutrients...you will hardly know it is in there so no need to heat like a regular bowl of oatmeal - cold is delicious.

is there any benefit to blasting cooked oatmeal with fruit?

I just throw a couple of heaping tablespoons of rolled oats in the blast uncooked. Works great.

Yes, it is a great source of complex carbs, fiber and B vitamins. You can use the raw oats in your NutriBlast along with your favorite ingredients.
my blood sugar was 120 this morning I had 2 cups of coffee with an artificial sweetener and a nutriblast with about 4 I inch chunks of pineapple, 3 or 4 raisins, and maybe 15 blueberries, 1/2 cup of quick one minute oatmeal, 4 ice cubes and some almond milk. The ice cubes were higher than the max line, so I put it all in the tall cup with some rice milk. One of the ice cubes didn't break up after about 50 seconds of blasting even though I took it off and shook it. My blood sugar was 176 an hour and a half later, which I consider normal and good.(I have not found rolled oats in a store yet). But I am wondering, what can you put in your coffee in the morning besides sugar? I would like to add that that blast tasted wonderful
Hi all, I use Quaker oats butHi all, I use Quaker oats but I don't cook it first. I put in 2 heaping scoops along with mixed frozen fruit and berries and a tablespoon of green tea powder(which I made myself)the boost powder and about 8 walnuts,flax seed and water. It is fantastic and goes down smooth. It gives me enough energy that I don't need to nap anymore.
actually just put a teaspoon of honey in there and some almond milk or skim milk. It's better for you and less sugar. I add coffee to my morning blast which is mostly fruit and a bit of honey and it's great. But if you need the caffeine fix then try green tea powder. 1 tbsp of that is equal to about 10 cups of tea.
