Just wondering how you guys get your oats into your shakes. I see alot of people say grind em up, but i don't have a coffee grinder. I usually just throw some raw rolled oats into a blender with the rest of my stuff. Works ok, but I usually gotta chew my way through half of the shake hehe.

LOL I mix everything with a spoon because I always loose my shaker tops so I gave up on them. I man up and just drink with a handfull of fresh oats mixed in. Gets pretty thick towards the nbottom.Bulking...

Before I had a grinder I just threw a cup of oats in my shaker. I'd shake em up and then wait a few minutes for the liquid to soke in a bit. Wasn't bad at all.

I recommend you read the fantastic thread by Alan Aragon in the Nutrition Forum (it's a sticky).I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull. This is Cringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: "By the power of Greyskull, I have the power!" Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

Invest in a small coffee grinder. They cost like $15, and it will turn oats into a fine powder.
I buy the largest barrel of Quaker oats and take about 15 minutes of grinding, then place the oats in some cylindrical tupperwear for storage. I'll eat regular oats (unground) once a day and grounded oats 3x a day in shakes and milks and such.
1.) Add 16oz of milk to grounded oats and stir until it's all absorbed
2.) Add some Hershey's chocolate syrup or else you'll be drinking chalk, and while chalk can be fun for writing it sucks for drinking.
