breakfast oatmeal horchata
1/4 cup oats
1 cup milk (2%, nonfat, soy?)
teaspoon of honey
dash of cinammon.
blend for 45 seconds, pour in a cup, add ice to chill.
voila! daily dose off oats made in 1 minute, downed in 30 seconds raw!
add honey or replace milk with choco milk and double recipe for post rides.
Sounds good! Thanks. I'll try it!
I do this on a regular basis and even add some fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, etc) for a bit of a twist on occasion.
You can also do the same thing, but let it set up overnight in the fridge.
1/2 cups outs
1/2 cup milk
Any kind of yougurt you like
Add fruit (apples/bananna, etc)
I add coconut, walnuts, etc.
Place in bowl, let it set up overnight in the fridge.
1 Cup of whole Milk
1 packet of Dry Oats
1/2 Cup Fruit of Choice..banana, strawberry or blueberries
1 tablespoon of Hagen Daz * your choice
1 Scoop Protein Powder
Squeeze of Honey and Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon of Natural PB
Blend on High with ice > 60 seconds
Pre or Post ride..
I'm lactose intolerant so I use:
2 scoops of Rice protien
1.5 scoops of Douglas Labs Pro PCA fuel
1 cup blueberries/strawberries or any frozen fruits
1 cup filtered water
1/4 cup quick oats
2 tbls of ground flax seed or chia seeds
Blend and drink while feasting on not more than 12 almonds
This is my breakfast most days and after a good workout. Just prior I prefer my home made Muesli hot cereal with frozen fruits and almond milk.
Cheers to quality long life everyone!
anyone using steel cut oats for this? I feel like rolled oats are probably ideal, but im sitting on a huge tub of steel cut right now.
You'll have to cook steel cut prior to blending but i don't see why not!

protein powder (eyeball it) I think mine is chocolate flavoured
Serve in a frozen beer mug for best results.
ONE WORD: GRAVITY
all sound good.
my morning drink consists of:
1 c. of yerba mate (any flavor)
few leaves of rainbow chard
few leaves of kale
few leaves of collards
3 Tbl of finely ground flax
Blue Agave to sweeten
This is what I do, except I use soy milk and soak just the oats in it overnight. Mix in the yogurt, fruit (I like raisins or dried cranberries) and maybe some sunflower seeds in the morning. Easy peasy.

I have my Flahavan's Irish porridge oats (imported from Ireland ) for the carbs, a few slices of gently fried ham for protein, and a steaming cup of Black tea (usually an English or Irish Breakfast blend) in the morning.
I usually don't add fruit to the Flahavans, but I think I should give it a try .
Here's what I do for the oatmeal: * this makes just one serving, but it's surprisingly filling *
~ in a fairly small pot, put 1/2 cup of the porridge oats to 1 1/4 cups of milk (whole milk is best) or water and stir the mixture a bit with a wooden spoon.
~ bring to a boil, and when it reaches that point, turn heat to medium, and stir continuously until thickened. Turn off heat.
~ Pour into bowl, and add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg, and sweeten to your liking with maple syrup or brown sugar.
~ Let sit for a few minutes to cool.
~ Enjoy . Shouldn't take long to prepare, but is well worth the wait. Great before a ride .

I prefer thermos cooking my oats myself.
Ratio: 1 part steel cut oats to 3.5 parts water
Salt: To taste Ė try 1/2 teaspoon per cup of oats to start (put the salt in after the oatmeal is cooked)
Cooking Time: 40 minutes (approx.)
Boil enough water to fill up your thermos. I like to use an electric kettle, but use the stove or whatever else you have.
While itís heating, get your ingredients ready.
Once your water boils, fill up your thermos, close the lid, and set aside.
Measure out your water, keeping a 1:3.5 ratio. You can use between 3 and 4 cups water for each cup of oats, but I think 3 1/2 cups is perfect.
Boil your measured water.
When your water is about ready to boil, pour the water out of the thermos.
Put the oats in the thermos and pour the boiling water over them, close it up, give in a few shakes, and lay it down on the counter.
Then it's just a matter of shaking it up every once in a while until I'm ready to eat. I add some cinnamon and honey, and I'm done.
I like to have about a cup of oats with 1.5 cups of silk vanilla soy milk. Pop it in the microwave oven for about 4 minutes, stir. Then add the secret ingredient, a good sized dollop of peanut butter.
Man that sticks to the ribs.....I'm not kidding about the peanut butter, try it, its magical.
No conventional wisdom, just current wisdom. Reinvented knowledge that is seldom relevant as the variable landscape is vast.
Some great recipes in here.
When I was lifting my bedtime meal would be:
250g cottage cheese
2 Scoops Protein
Handful of berries
Breakfast meal, whatever you want it to be
8 oz Blueberries
8oz almond milk
2 TBSP Almond Butter
2 scoops Whey Protein
Blend and chill....excellent breakfast, or on the go meal.
sorry, was searching for something else when I came across this thread.
I, too, like oatmeal in my breakfast/pre-ride smoothies. Here's my ideal (in order of adding ingredients):
6oz plain Greek yogurt
1 cup milk
1/4-1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
1 ripe banana
handful frozen blueberries
handful frozen strawberries and peaches
1 7oz packet of Amazing Grass Green Superfood
1 TBS Flaxseed oil
sometimes, and sometimes not, 1 TBS peanut butter
It never gets stale.... great stuff!
