When assessing the popular high-quality Ascent series blenders, the Vitamix A2300 is the best when it comes to value for money.

What makes Vitamix stand out is its wireless connection to the Vitamix store, where you can easily access the many oat recipes the blender can prepare.
Vitamix A2300 blender is a good choice whether you want the oat flour or a lumpy smoothie texture as the timer. (Which is one of the stand-out features of this blender). It can be set to grind and pound to your desired puree. The good news regarding the Vitamix A2300 blender is it doesn’t stop here, as it has a self-detect feature that allows it to adjust the maximum blending time according to the pitcher used. This self-detect feature will make it possible to put in your oats and blend to the desired texture without being present. (The primary pitcher is the only pitcher sold with the blender, and any other of its seven pitchers will have to be purchased separately.)

Beginners are not left out, as they can decide to buy the Vitamin smart scale, which works with the Vitamin application. There will be no guesswork as the scale will help to measure the exact quantity needed for your oat recipes.

Ninja Foodi Blender is the most popular blender among the Foodi series. It is the first blender released by SharkNinja that includes; an in-built heating element that allows the blender to boil soup. In theory, this should mean you should be able to cook your raw oats into oatmeal. (Didn’t find any proof of this online, and we won’t advise you to try it either).
One powerful feature of the Ninja Foodi is the automated setting called “Auto IQ technology.” It is pre-programmed cycles that involve continuous blending, pulsing, and stopping at intervals. The pre-programmed cycles are recipes found on the face of the blender. They include smoothies, soup, frozen drinks, juice, etc.
This automated setting is convenient for you when blending your oats, as you can use one of the automatic settings to turn it into a smoothie or a fine powder.
- A budget-friendly blender
- It has automatic speed settings for easy-to-make recipes.
- It has a glass pitcher making it a non-stick.
- It has no extra accessories (Can’t get them separately).
- Difficult to wash because of the in-built heat system and not dishwasher friendly.
Which is Better for Raw Oats, Blender or Food processor?
If the oats are being put with other ingredients to create a smoothie, you should use a blender. Food processors can also make a smoothie, but it takes a long and systematic process, unlike a blender where you throw in all your ingredients.
Can Immersion Blenders make a Smoothie with Oats?
Yes, they can. It is possible to make smoothie-oats with a hand-blender, but the quantity will have to be small compared to the traditional blenders. You will also have to exercise patience since it is a more hands-on approach.
Can Oats be Used in a Juicer to make a Smoothie?
This is possible, but you may have to soak those oats overnight and maybe add some milk to soften the texture and make it easier on the juicer.
Choosing a blender to prepare oats as a healthy snack can be tasking, but we hope you will move one step closer in selecting the ideal Blender for you with this guide.
