I recommend the Blender Bottle!

Since protein shakes have become a part of my life, i have been trying to find a good way to drink them and save money. They are a supplemental meal that i have come to rely on. So needless to say, i have tried various ways to make them palatable but they have never been a pleasure if i had to mix them myself.

So i have continually sort out something that would make it easier and convenient for me to drink them with some pleasure.

They tend to be grainy.

The mixers or blenders have always been a trial, pulling out the bigger ones have proven tedious, cumbersome and just a plain ole headache.

Then i discovered the Blender Bottle, i do remember some ads on TV but that didn't make me run out and buy it or order it off TV.

One day i walked into Walmart and boom there it was sitting on an end cap shelf, i promptly bought one. It was priced well as far as i felt and was worth a try, and for less than eight dollars i didn't feel as if i was being robbed. Especially if it turned out to be a bargain!

Cons

  • the measurements are marked too lightly, they are hard to read
  • the flip top is too tight, it is tough to open
  • if the lid is not too tightly closed, it makes a mess when you shake it
  • you cannot add fruit

Pros

  • it's portable
  • metal ball mixes powder and liquid well
  • no grainy substance left
  • tight lid is secure and snaps shut, (mixed pro & con)
  • it is B P A free
  • it is a 20 ounce bottle, actually more like 22 oz

Personally, I recommend the Blender Bottle, it has saved me lots of money, i'd recently spent on pre mixed shakes. It also helped me to enjoy the shake mixing and drinking process, so i began using my protein powders even more frequently.

Trouble is if i leave the shake too long i realize that you have to continue to shake vigorously because the shake separates, so the bottle gives me the advantage of being able to do that when ever it is needed.

Cleaning

It's plastic so the Blender Bottle needs a good cleaning after every use.

  • rinse with hot water
  • put a drop of dish soap in the bottle
  • shake the bottle
  • rinse again
  • allow to air dry or wipe it dry

if you don't clean and rinse the bottle properly it smells bad, so keep it clean.

Types of protein shake powders

  • whey, a by product of cheese
  • soy, made from the soy bean plant

Flavors

  • chocolate, milk, dark, mocha
  • vanilla
  • strawberry
  • coffee
  • and many more, like chocolate chip

So go ahead and enjoy your hand shaken protein shakes again, definitely at a lower more economical cost!

We bought several of these for our 4H lemon aid booth for the kids to shake up the lemon juice and sugar. It worked great! Since them I bought one for my husband who is always mixing up teas. He can't put it down! You did a great review!
