Can I blend oats?
Similarly one may ask, can you put raw oats in a smoothie?
You can mix raw oats and fruit with milk, fruit juice or yogurt to make a smoothie. First blending the oats alone can help you achieve a smoother texture or you can soak the oats in the liquid for 10 to 20 minutes to soften them a bit before blending all the ingredients.
Beside above, do I need to cook oats before putting in a smoothie? Whole rolled oats tend to blend better, and you don't have to cook them before adding them to your smoothie. Either throw the oats into your blender with the rest of your ingredients or soak them beforehand for at least an hour in milk or water (this softens them and will give your smoothie a smoother texture.)
Just so, can you grind oats in a blender?
All you need is a blender/food processor and old-fashioned oats. Add 1 to 2 cups old-fashioned oats to a blender or food processor. Place the lid on, and give it a go on high speed until the oats turn into a fine powder.
What kind of oats go in smoothies?
Rolled oats are always my first choice, and what I typically have in the pantry, although quick oats will work just as well. However, because of their thicker, tougher texture, steel-cut oats don't blend up well for smoothie; save those for a bowl of oatmeal.
