Ok, so when I first heard about Shakeology my first thought was that I would either have to get the blender out constantly or just deal with another “chunky” protein shake that just never seems to mix in completely. Neither of those options sounded quite appealing. With extreme luck, I happened upon the website of the best purchase that I have made in quite some time…the Blender Bottle!
Introducing Blender Bottle… it’s a bottle, that is supposed to blend to perfection. What’s great is that it doesn’t just stop at protein shakes, there are other things that you can do such as make omelets and crepes etc. Before we get to that though, let’s hear the official word from their website…
The Best Mixer since the Wire Whisk.
Gourmet cooks rely on the wire whisk to blend their ingredients into a smooth and light consistency. Now you can do the same with the BlenderBottle®. The patented BlenderBall® wire whisk moves freely throughout the bottle as you shake it, mixing the thickest ingredients with ease. Now you can mix it smooth—anytime, anywhere!
Blender Bottle Uses:
- Nutrition Drinks

- Pudding Omelets & Egg Dishes
- Water Bottle
- Dry Ingredients (cinnamon or colored sugar, etc.)
- Food Storage (nuts, syrup, etc.)
You know what, I’m going to be honest with you all… when I looked at this thing, I was like “it’s just an average shaker cup with a wire ball inside… whooptie! This won’t even come CLOSE to a blender in terms of performance”. And can you blame me? I mean look at it… it’s so simple in terms of design. If you’ve ever seen the shaker cups at GNC, they have these weird tornado contraptions inside them… it’s crazy. This didn’t have any of that.
But since I was too lazy to repeatedly haul out the blender (and clean it!!)… I wasn’t going to let my pre-judgement stop me! The overall build quality was exceptional, everything had a great finish and the wire whisk was made of surgical quality steel.
The next thing I noticed was the white lid flap. This thing is STIFF. It’s a little tough to open and it stays where you leave it… now if you’re used to normal shaker bottles you might think this is a design flaw. But it isn’t! They call it the StayOpen Flip Cap™ and the idea behind it is that when you goto drink from the cup and tilt it towards your face, the lid won’t come slapping down on your nose. Personally I think this is great and it shows a great attention to detail which they have put themselves through. Awesome.
And the good news keeps on coming. The entire bottle is made from BPA free plastics so you won’t have to worry about any of the scares related to the use of those plastics.
Real World Results:
Now that I have used my Blender Bottle for the last 4 months I finally wanted to share my experience with you. Being that I like to drink my Shakeology in the morning, the Blender Bottle really makes for a very quick option for a perfectly blended shake! The Blender Bottle easily takes my mixture of Shakeology and Whey Protein powders and mixes them thoroughly in as little as 5-6 seconds!!
I was surprisingly impressed with how it performed even after adding crushed ice into the shake. Also, it has never leaked once, the seal is that good. The reason for this is because you can really tighten the lid.
Now after you use the Blender Bottle, it’s only common sense that you need to clean it up… well fear not because everything is dishwasher safe so that saves you from doing it, which is great in my books. If however there are times where you need to squeeze multiple uses outta it, such as making a shake, then throwing together an omelet and then mixing up a fruit drink then you’re covered as well because it takes about 10 seconds to wash and rinse. You really couldn’t ask for anything more.
So it’s built well and performs even better all the while providing an easy clean up. Then there is the price, a measly $8.99. Right now I have to say that I’m completely stumped because as far as I can tell, the Blender Bottle is almost completely without fault.
I consider the Blender Bottle a MUST BUY. There is no question about it, if you drink Shakeology or other protein shakes (and most of you do) then go invest a measly 9 bucks and grab yourself a Blender Bottle… I HIGHLY recommend it.
