I don’t have a lot of time in the morning. No elaborate breakfast, sitting at the table reading a newspaper for me. That is just not my schedule during the week. That doesn’t mean I rush (usually I don’t have to), I just don’t have time to add any extracurricular activities of such to my morning routine. That is why I often take my morning smoothie on the go. For a long time I didn’t have the right container to bring along any drinks. Scared that it would spill in my bag and often drink cups are just too small for a breakfast smoothie.
However, a while ago I found the ideal container for smoothies/shakes in one of my favorite cooking appliances stores Cook&Co. It’s called the Shaker To Go by Sistema a cool brand from New Zealand. They are all about well made products, beautiful design and food safety. And their products are exactly what they promise to be.
The first thing I noticed is that it has this spiral-shaped lid which is ideal for giving your drink a shake to mix everything up again and the handy fliptop makes drinking without spilling on your shirt actually possible. This is the first container for liquids I actually trust, so you really don’t have to worry the shaker is going to open up in your bag. I have shaken it, dropped it, carried it upside down in my bag you name it! No problem at all!
Another bonus is that you can fill it up with 700 ml of your favorite home-made smoothie. I always end up making a little extra, so even if I don’t finish my drink in the morning, I keep the rest in the fridge to curb my afternoon cravings. Oh, and let’s not forget that they come in cool colors, are dishwasher proof and Sistema only uses material with PP (no BPA!) which is not harmful for your body and easy to recycle!
By browsing their various product lines, I have come to the conclusion that there are so many other Sistema products I really, really need to carry and store my food in. Lunchboxes, candy containers, water bottles and they have a lot of handy kids lunchboxes too. I think I’ll now get back to filling up my shopping cart!
P.S. For all people in The Netherlands: Albert Heijn has Sistema products, including the Shaker To Go, on sale this week!
