Being on the road sometimes requires finding alternative ways of doing things that are simply done at home. Blending/mixing things is one of those tasks. It just isn't practical to carry an electric blender in the truck. I recently bought a Blender Bottle and am finding it really handy.
Basically it's a plastic shaker bottle with a stainless steel wire ball inside that acts like a whisk when the bottle is shaken. I am using it to make protein shakes.
The first shake I tried was 8 ounces of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and a scoop of triple chocolate whey protein shake powder. After shaking it all up for about a minute it was perfectly blended.
Tonight I tried something a little different and used the same volume of almond milk, 6 ounces of low fat strawberry banana yogurt, and the same protein shake powder. The bottle blended it all together perfectly and it tasted delicious! That's officially my favorite so far.
That wire ball really makes a difference on how well the thing blends the ingredients together. Not really a replacement for a blender, but damn close and it doesn't take up much room at all.
