Oh my goodness, how absolutely delicious! What a "lovely" morning delight. Wow! I substituted a peach for the grapes. Yummy!

This is wonderful. It tastes like it would be a great dessert also. I used oranges and regular old fashioned oatmeal. Amazing!

We made this recipe using blueberries and old fashioned oats. My three children loved it. My 6 yr old daughter wanted to give it a 17 star rating. We will definitely try it again with other fruit combinations. Very fast and easy in the Vitamix.

Goodness gracious this is good! I didn't have any grapes, so I put a banana in instead. Came out a little like pudding instead of a smoothie. I'll try a peach next time and maybe almonds instead of walnuts. Thank you so much for sharing. It is a new favorite breakfast.

Interesting...I used buckwheat and it turned out great. It has a really creamy consistency. I will try a banana next time.

Mine also turned out more like pudding but I think I might have used more oats than I should have. I just added in some unsweetened almond milk (I don't drink soy) and thinned it up a bit. Instead of grapes I used a banana and dates. Left out the raisins. It tastes fantastic!

I finally found my new favorite breakfast. I substituted dates and cashew for the raisins and walnuts.

I used fresh papaya for my smoothie. It is pretty thick and ate it with a spoon out of a bowl like I would oatmeal. Very filling and tasty. Yum!

Ok, this smoothie is really fantastic! I used unsweetened coconut milk; an orange for fruit and currants instead of raisins and kept it blending in the Vitamix for almost 4 minutes as instructed and it turned out great.

This is super good! I've made it three times now. I double the recipe, and it fills a tall glass (around 16 oz I think). This morning I made it with 1 cup of fresh strawberries and 1 medium sized banana (doubled recipe). It was delicious!

Do I cook the oatmeal or put it in there in dry form?

I have the same question, does it get warm because the oatmeal is warm?


09/05/2012 03:04 PM

Rated this recipe:

In answer to your question, the Vitamix heats it up. You put the oats in dry. The Vitamix runs for 2-4 minutes and heats it up. Yummy breakfast. Great recipe.

This was very tasty! I followed the above recipe using blueberries and look forward to trying out some of the other suggestions posted. Yum!

I used frozen strawberries and perhaps that retarded the process. Ended with nearly doubling the almond milk and it's still very thick. I will try adding a dash of salt substitute in future.

I made 2 servings worth and used 1 cup strawberries and 1 cup frozen blueberries while doubling all other ingredients. I made a kind of pudding. It was - OK. Maybe better if the walnuts chopped after the blending is done.
I think it would have been better if my fruit was more ripe and sweet.
I would like to try a variation using cocoa powder for a chocolate pudding dessert.

I made this with strawberries and had it as a cold smoothie - perfect for the Australian summer! Will definitely make it again.

Very good with modifications:
Buckwheat instead of oatmeal
Added hemp seeds
Used pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts

Very thick, next time I'll try recipe as is. Mine was still very good

I have had steel cut oats every morning for almost a year, and love it. Recently I have changed off once in a while to Scottish oatmeal. It's thick and very satisfying, and can be cooked in 10 minutes, instead of the 20 or so that steel cut oatmeal takes. It's a nice change of pace.

I don't like a thick smoothie so I added a cup of sparkling water and I substituted 2 medjool dates for the raisins. Fantastic!

This was delicious. We put the mixture in the fridge for a few hours and had a wonderful dessert with a mousse texture. I will try to freeze this to make ice pops for warm weather snacks

Delicious! I had already soaked my steel cut oats overnight in the fridge, so I used 4 tablespoons of the oats, added a little more almond milk, fresh blueberries, currants instead of raisins, the rest of the ingredients and drank it cold. I did not totally  liquefy liquefy it, so I still had to chew a little. Loved it. Perfect for summer. Thanks!

I make Bob's Red Mill Quick Cooking Steel-cut oats in my Instant pot.  I will put 1/2 cup dry.  1 cup water, handful of dried gogi berries, 5 min.  When I am done upstairs, I come down and it's ready.  Very good and filling.  I will sometimes add a cup of berries.  I tend to power up the bowl with 1/4 teas. turmeric, tich pepper, 1 tb gr. flax.  Ceylon Cinnamon or Apple Pie Spice.  I think I'll try this too!   It's been getting colder of late.

Do you soak or cook oats before using in the recipe?

Oh my gosh!  This is good.  I am a five-day-a-week oatmeal, raisins and walnuts eater.  Today I needed something warm and liquid as I have a dental emergency that cannot be addressed until the afternoon.  I thought this would be a good recipe but I had not imagined it would be this good.  Followed the recipe exactly and used a half cup each of blueberries and fresh pineapple.  Very good combination.  Only problem is I would like seconds. (LOL)  Thanks for a creative, delicious breakfast.  And by the way, I did not soak the oats.  They were completely blended / emulsified.  It is a 5+.
