The Perfect Travel Smoothie Cup Accessories - Stainless Steel Straws and Ice Cubes

Updated on September 23, 2014

I am addicted to smoothies, but like most people I am always in a hurry, which is why I needed a travel smoothie cup to transport my delicious smoothies out the door with me. I enjoy my smoothies so I didn't go to all the trouble of making a delicious fruit smoothie to just gulp it down and not enjoy it.

Being on the move I needed a straw to drink it with as spilling my famous berry smoothie down the front of a white shirt usually ends in a string of expletives being uttered and a trip back to my closet to get a clean shirt.

My solution to this was to start using plastic disposable straws, however there is a downside to using these straws and that is that they are bad for the environment. Plastic straws don't decompose, so every straw I used was both killing the planet and the chemicals that have been shown to leach out of them (such as polypropylene and BPA (Bisphenol A)) was having a similar effect on me. So a swift change was needed.

The last thing you want in today's smoothie as you travel to work is bits left over from yesterdays classic. This brush will make sure that doesn't happen. Makes cleaning your stainless steel straws as easy as making your favourite smoothies!


That is when I changed to stainless steel straws, which are the perfect travel smoothie accessory. There are no chemicals, they don't split, they are reusable and best of all I am not killing the planet one straw at a time. (As an aside, 500 million straws are used in the United States daily, think of the landfill that uses!).

So now I can enjoy my magnificent fruit smoothies both guilt free and only tasting of the contents I put in my blender. Now if only I could find a way to not dilute my smoothies with ice cubes to make them as cold as I like them.

Well ask and sometimes you receive. These stainless steel ice cubes are the perfect travel smoothie cup accessory. Gel filled, you just pop them in the freezer and when you are walking out the door you pop them into your smoothie and they will keep it cool, whilst not diluting a single drop. All you have to do when you have finished your drink is give them a quick clean and pop them back in the freezer.

Needless to say, they are also perfect in a glass of fine single malt scotch!
