Have Smoothie, Will Travel
Are you on the go a lot? Here is a great way to take your smoothie with you! I use a quart mason jar with a lid to take it in the car with me…and that way, I can put the lid back on when I’m done and there is no mess. I try to stay away from plastic as much as possible, so I choose to use glass. However, you could put your smoothie in a reused plastic water bottle or other container. I would recommend that you don’t put them in a stainless steel container such as the Klean Kanteen or Sigg unless you can rinse it immediately. They tend to be much harder to clean smoothie gunk out of. This is also a great way to keep oxygen out after you make them the night before…fill it as close to the top as you can and cap it. Line them up in he fridge and you’re good to go.
If you don’t want to answer the question of “Oh my gosh. What is in THAT?!!” over and over…put it in a container that isn’t clear. Although, clear containers are a more effective way of sharing the green smoothie love. Just tell them to go to our Facebook group and join up!
You can find quart jars with lids in bulk at Wal-Mart or at your local kitchen/hardware store. If you need to keep it colder for a longer period of time, get yourself a funky insulated lunch bag (like this one or this one or this one)and a couple of re-freezable gel packs. That way, you can have one later in the day for a snack too! Now there are no excuses for not drinking your smoothie!
