blending oats

i have been buying ultra fine oats to make my shakes with but have just realised how cheap you can get them in the supermarket. only problem is is i only have a hand blender so is it possibly to just blend them once i have mixed them with water or do they need to be blended beforehand?

    I think it would be best for them to be blended before you mix them m8 as it will be less messy with blending them after you have mixed them and should be easier to take as well...

    DUDE! i wondered about this too. I got a braun hand-blender, and was SERIOUSLY considering getting a liquidiser, but had a got with my hand-one first. IT WORKS mate!!

    Today, i used it to make one of TT's shakes, which has oats, whey, water, half a banana, and peanut butter. I dont like to use peanut butter as its salty and makes the shakes taste horrid, so i used roasted peanuts and rinsed the salt off using first. So i put WHOLE peanuts into the mixinf beaker, along with the oats and everythign else, whizzed it with the hand blender and... "robert's your dad's brother" (works a charm)

    Have a go at least mate. see if it works for you.

    i've got a braun one too mate lol. yeah i'll give it a go, thanks for the tip. i was hoping you could just do that. it will take a little longer to make having to blend it everytime but i suppose it beats having to fork out for a proper blender or payin lots extra for ultra fine oats.

    TBH mate, it did take me any extra time to blend it all, just throw it all in, then the secret is to add a little water / milk, just to get it going, so its a bit like a paste, then put the rest of the water ot milk in and blend for another few seconds. didnt take me longer than a few mins in total mate.

    i'll take it you meant to write "didn't take any extra time"

    just meant it will take longer than just sticking the ultra fine oats in my shaker then shaking it. as obviously i will have to get the blender out, blend the oats, wash it then put away etc.

    thanks bud

    Have you considered Ready Brek or supermarkets equivalent?
