Ask The Chef: Smoothies while traveling?

Posted by Support Boomity on Mar 4, 2013 5:00:48 AM

Q: I like the idea of superfoods smoothies and the Smoothment, but I travel so much it's hard to get in a routine. How can I stay on track while on the road?

-Nathaniel T.

A: Travel-smoothies are certainly a possibility, albeit a little different from their home-based counterparts. I do of course know people who travel with their blender, making frequent trips to the store to aquire fresh produce,and then blend fresh smoothies each day in their hotel room. While I certainly would never discourage a healthy practice like this, it's also quite the smoothie comittment… and likely more effort than most of us are able to invest while traveling. For the rest of us, you'll just need to pack a couple of extra things to make a great travel-smoothie … and it's all surprisingly easy.

Shaker Cup - Seen those plastic shaker cups with the little metal ball inside? That's your new substitute-blender best friend. They're light, compact, functional, and can easily be rinsed out in a bathroom sink after each use.

Spoon - You'll also need a spoon for measuring; bring one if you think for some reason you'll won't be able to find one.

Flavored Plant-based Protein/Meal Blend - Bringing packets of your favorite flavor of a nutrient-dense powder blend is key. Since you won't be blending fresh produce, this helps give your shaker-cup “smoothie†body and flavor, as well as satiating nutrients. Look for varieties that suggest being blended in water, as these will be the most soluble.

Green Powder - It's good to stay alkaline and cleansed by making sure you get your greens each day … and there's no easier way than by bringing a bag of greens powder. Wheatgrass powder is especially effective because it doesn't impart a strong taste, and is incredibly potent (meaning very little is needed to get the benefits …. Good for light luggage).

Favorite Superfood Powders - You don't need to bring your entire superfood collection while traveling, but packing a bag or two of key superfoods will greatly enhance your smoothie, and likely, your energy while on the road. Superfoods like Camu Powder, Acai Powder, and Goji Powder are a no-brainer addition to shaker smoothies.

Stevia - Using stevia can help enhance the flavor and sweetness of your blend. It usually comes in a tiny bottle too, so it won't take up much room.
To make your smoothie, simply put about a serving of each of the ingredients into the shaker cup, add filtered water as well as stevia to taste, and shake until combined. It may take a couple of days to perfect your quantities to get the best taste, but keeping on track with the daily smoothie habit will make you feel so, so much better.
