The following is a my very first guest post and my dahling hubs is the guest…
Have you ever been frustrated with a lumpy protein shake?
For years, I (that’s me) choked through half ass stirred, half mixed protein shakes. Often, to eliminate the hassle and clean up, I’d buy those pre-made protein shakes that tasted like the inside of a camel’s mouth (don’t ask).
Eventually, I found a solution to my problem.
First, I started experimenting with easier to mix protein powders. Results improved, but weren’t 100%. Then, on a visit to Whole Paycheck, I purchased an interesting shaker. What made the shaker unusual was the inclusion of a stainless steel mixing ball. At first, I suspected it was nothing more than a gimmick, but results were as advertised. Finally, I had a quick, easy way to mix (and clean up) protein shakes without having to use the dreaded blender. By the way, that purchase was made four years ago.
Fast forward to the present.
Michelle has eschewed reviewing numerous products or providing endorsements. Often, after receiving a product, she couldn’t find anything good to say about the product. And mom always said, if you can’t say nice things about a product, then throw that shit in the trash.
So, she asked me (hubs) to write a review of a new BlenderBottle. Even cooler, the swell people at BlenderBottle would give a lucky reader (is that you?) their own BlenderBottle.
Well, since I love this product and have used the original for a few years, let’s get the main review points out of the way:
- The surgical, steel ball blends protein thoroughly. I’m sure there’s some science behind this, but I’m not a scientist. I just know it works. I’m not certain about blending combinations of items like they do in those Will It Blend videos, but I’m confident with protein. Although, as I think about it, I’d wager this bad boy makes a swell martini.
- If you’re mixing something other than protein, say Kool Aid, this doubles as a portable water bottle, too.
- I dig this new version, the BlenderBottle SportsMixer®. It holds 28 ounces, and the markings make it easy to see how much liquid you’ve added. Easy clean up and it hasn’t warped or melted in the dishwasher. The BB literature says it’s BPA and Phthalate free. Again, I’m not a scientist, so if that’s important to you, do your due diligence. If it’s not, well shake it, baby.
- You can find the BlenderBottle at numerous retail joints. Or, order one from their website.
Well, let’s get to the giveaway. Leave your name in the comment section and you’ll be entered. Say something nice about me (hubs), and be special entered (just kidding). I’ll do a double secret probation drawing on my birthday, July 1, and we’ll announce the winner. We’ll contact the lucky winner to get your info for those swell folks at BlenderBottle.
