As previously mentioned, smoothies can incorporate the perfect blend of nutrition for runners. The downside – buying smoothies can deplete funds fast! Much like the “latte factor” can wreak havoc on your wallet (spending $5 or more per day on a cup of fancy joe) buying smoothies on a regular basis adds up to a hefty budget allocation.
That is why we channeled our inner “thirsty girl” to discover the perfect at-home smoothie blender. By purchasing your very own smoothie making machine you will not only save money in the long run, but you will also be able to control the ingredients used to create your frosty, delicious treats.
The Oster MyBlends Blender is a product made just for active girls like us (OK, we can share it with men too…). It’s perfect for making a single serving smoothie that you can take with you wherever you go.
Once you fill the BPA-free sports bottle with your favorite ingredients and invert it on the stand, activate the motor blade and voila! – your smoothie is ready for consumption! Attach the drinking lid to the bottle and the smoothie becomes instantly portable for on-the-go girls. Once you’ve finished your smoothie, simply rinse the bottle and now you have a refillable water bottle to use throughout the rest of the day. Two functions in one = BONUS!
While we love, love, love products that make our life more simple, the only downside to this smoothie blender is that it doesn’t allow for making portions large enough to share. Oster addresses this issue by selling additional blender sport bottles to be used with the blender stand.
We found the perfect smoothie blender on Amazon, but the Oster MyBlends Blender is also available at Walmart and Target. The hardest choice about making this purchase is choosing which color blender you want. 🙂
Here’s one of our favorite smoothie recipes, but now we’re curious- what ingredients would you blend in the perfect smoothie blender?
