Best way to bring smoothies to work?

arielleeve Jan 1, 2014 04:57 PM

Looking for suggestions about what kind of vessel is best for transporting smoothies to work. Ideally it's something leakproof (I commute via subway) and from which I can also drink easily (i.e. with a spout or straw of some sort).

    Sounds crazy, but my Contego insulated coffee mugs are my favorite way to go. Insulated (an ice cube in one still has a frozen remnant at the end of the day, long after I'm done with the smoothie), spill resistant, stainless steel, and you can chug smoothie with people thinking you are just having some coffee. In my field, coffee is okay, smoothie makes you weird. Mine holds about 14 oz. I bought mine as a 2 pack at costco a year or two ago.

      Have you given any thought to bringing your blender to work? Bring your ingredients then blend it immediately before you want to drink.

        I love the Klean Kanteen products. The insulated bottles have all sorts of lid options - some of which are spill proof while others are not. An extra benefit is that it will keep the contents cold for hours.

        If you have an REI near you they carry bottles and lids

            Was thinking of that, problem is I can't toss it in my bag during the commute -- would have to keep it upright somehow which isn't always the easiest...

              I really love the basic camel back ones with the straw.

              However for super thick smoothies where a straw doesn't cut these are good too.
