SmartShake - The World's Smartest Shaker

Shakes are everywhere at the moment, well they have been for years, but I've seen a sudden urge in social media about protein shakes and their shakers.
I've always associated protein shakes with body builders or for people that have problems gaining weight. Protein shakes also keep you feeling fuller for longer, just like a high protein diet, therefore you eat less unnecessary foods. I did a high protein diet to help me loose weight a few years ago, but the diet didn't include any shakes. Wish it did, as it may have been easier to complete. Some people have to have protein & vitamin shakes, like Complan shakes to keep them healthy, as their bodies need extra supplements. Everyone is different, but a good protein shake is generally full of the necessary nutrients and more, so effectively, everyone could benefit from at least one a day.

I've tried diet shakes in the past and generally used a hand blender or a twizzle to mix it up. I have seen the shake bottles to mix them with, but never needed to purchase one, as I wasn't doing it religiously. There are loads of shakers out there, but something about this one caught my eye.
When I saw the SmartShake on social media, I have to say that I was very impressed, and thought that this is one that everyone could mums included.
Why you ask ? Because it has storage and.....its easy to clean !!!! I don't think I've seen a shaker with storage, so this one is amazing !
The SmartShake comes in nearly all the colours of the rainbow, and because it comes apart, its also interchangeable, so you can literally mix and match and have it to compliment your outfit. You could literally have one part blue, one part pink, and one part black. Whatever colour you want ..... they have it !! They also have some very stylish colours. I'm loving the Gold Edition !!
Let me show you how easy it is to make a shake - as that is what its predominately for.
As you can see the lid has an attachment that aerates the shake and mixes it well. So No Lumps !!! Woohoo!!
A couple of scoops of Protein Powder add water or fruit juice, or soya milk - I chose Milk, as I prefer the texture with Milk shakes - screw the lid on (securely!! you don't want shake everywhere) and ....... Shake!!! Easy, and as you can see, it mixes really well, and you have a nice smooth shake to drink when you need it. You can add ice cubes to keep it cool for a while or if you have chocolate flavour you can even warm it up in the microwave.

So, we have a shake in the cup part. We can also have a shake later, by adding more powder to the bottom part of the shaker and screwing that back on to secure the mix, and then if you need extra supplements, you can add your pills to the third compartment.

Alternatively, you can have one for your shake, and then use the compartment for locker keys, small snacks, like nuts and dried fruit. So, its also great for taking on picnics or just out and about. Its so secure that nothing will leak - Bonus !!
If you are more into protein mousses like Muscle Moose then the extra compartment can hold a travel spoon, so you can still have your sweet treat on the go.
For parents on the go, you can also use this to mix up baby or toddler formula. This way, you are not fiddling around in your huge parent bags trying to find all the bits you need to make up a bottle. You can put it all in one. If they are toddlers, then all you need to take is a straw, or they can use the sipper.
The SmartShake comes in 800ml, 600ml and 500ml, in slim or normal designs. Amazon have loads for sale , have a look HERE. The Neon colours are fab, and are perfect when out running or clipped into your bike in the dark. I have the Neon Orange. Bright isn't it?! you definitely couldn't loose this bad boy in your bag.
Its BPA free, so its safe to use in the dishwasher, microwave, and the freezer. So there's no excuse. However, it is stupidly easy to clean it too.
Have a look at their website to find out more details and check out all the fabulous colours !!

These can bought anything from £4.24 depending on which website you buy them from. They are great value and I like the fact that this one has two compartments as then you can take more powder if you need to.

Have you tried a shaker before? What did you think?
