Sometimes when you’re headed out on a ride, it’s hard to get in a full breakfast before you hit the road… and give it enough time to settle. On days like this, a smoothie is an excellent choice. A variety with plenty of protein will keep you strong on the bike all day long. And, best of all, you can easily take your smoothie along for the ride in your water bottle.
If it’s a hot day, be sure to rinse your water bottle immediately after finishing the smoothie to avoid a mess.
Use a stainless steel water bottle for easier clean up. If you’re concerned about that little bit of extra weight, you’re crazy.
You can easily rinse out a stainless steel water bottle in a drinking fountain and transition it to be one of your water bottles for the rest of the day.
