Travel Blender For Bpc

What's the best option for a blender for travelling. Seen a small handheld one on a few youtube clips, but can't find any for sale.


 


I've got a magic bullet, which is too big and a hand Breville, but that needs plugging in (not a massive issue), but it's pretty big and heavy. In fact not much different to the magic bullet.

  • I've been using this sucker for my BPC since day one.  Changed out the batteries a few times, but it is still going strong.  Comes with a travel case and was cheap on Amazon.

    Perfect, that just what I was looking for. Been search for blenders, but found it's a milk frother. Loads on ebay nice and cheap.


     


    Should be perfect for my trips, rest is easy, butter, coffee, mct, mug, hot water. Blending was the issue.

    I have a similar one (two actually) that I bought at a local IKEA.  USD around $3, super cheap.

  • Hey those are pretty sweet. Anyone want to see if it'll mix eggs? I've brought my magic bullet with me a few times to make my raw egg shakes, this might be a better option.

    Wow, is that what the BP diet can achieve? 


     


    Sorry I couldn't resist that comment. Sorry, admin  :-P

    I am incredibly grateful for all those who dedicate their time and experience here in helping others. I once was able to do the same in several other fora, often spending hours on end answering questions, which in turn gave me great personal satisfaction.

    I love this thing! Just got it a few days ago and it works great. Super cheap as well.


     


    Would definitely recommend it.

    Can't believe I didn't know what a milk frother was until yesterday. True lifetime of not drinking coffee.


     


    I've ordered on off ebay.


     


    Not sure it'll produce anything that can go into the Bulletproof Coffee Porn thread through ;-)

  • I used those while traveling,definitely not the same effect as a Vitamix  but works just fine on the road


  • katolotuskatolotus ✭✭✭

    how good are Vitamix's. Heard about how good they are, but are they worth the extra $$$'s. My magic Bullet works pretty well. Haven't tried the milk frothier yet, but sure it'll do great while away.

    I love my Vitamix they are great! Good for almost everything - making soup, smoothies, BPC etc. if you are planning to use it for a bunch of things it is worth it. If you are only going to make BPC with it then your magic bullet is probably just fine, because it is a pretty big investment for a blender. It will last basically forever though.

    I second the comments on a VitaMix. Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Without a doubt.


    I use my VitaMix every day. EVERY DAY. It makes my BPC super frothy. It cleans super easy. Makes cooking day a snap. And, here's something I didn't know about them that totally rocks. Toss in an uncooked sweet potato, some bacon pieces and maybe some cream or fat - and leave the VitaMix going for about five minutes. The blades spin at 200 MPH+ (according to their literature) and at that speed it causes so much friction, it literally makes soup that is boiling hot. I couldn't believe it until I tried it myself.


    I had the Magic Bullet but was limited with the size constraints. The VitaMix is worth saving up the coin and making the purchase.

    used the milk frother for the first time today, as I was away from home and used all my travel stuff to make my bulletproof coffee. Works quite well considering. Didn't do as good a job on the cocoa nibs, but I'll just have to leave them out next time ;-)

    What model do you use ? There seems to be quite a number of choices here. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_3?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=vitamix&sprefix=vit%2Caps%2C484&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Avitamix

  • I just bought http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CBNGEY/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 as an even lazier solution.  Haven't been able to test it, but conceptually should be great for bulletproof coffee on the go/while traveling.

    Just curious about what you use to grind and brew your coffee while traveling?

  • I pre-ground my coffee and took a gold filter with me.

  • BPC Cartridges now but used to use a small hario Hand grinder and Grind My beans daily...Also Yes on the Vitamix it's easliy the most used item in My kitchen from BPC to Kale Shakes to Soups You name it....


  • I've just put together my little BPC package for my 5 week tour. I've got the Aeropress, Porlex mini hand grinder, the above milk frother and i tried it all out today and it's amazing. Quicker than my usual method with a French Press!


  • edited October 2013
    I just tried a shaker bottle/blender bottle with the little metal coiled wire ball in it, like you would get free with a big purchase of whey powder.


    Put coffee and fat in, drop wire ball in, seal it up, and shake the heck out of it for a minute or so.


    Worked great!

    I didn't see it mentioned yet so I figured I'd chime in.


    EDIT: Apologies to jmj8778. I shall rephrase: your idea works great! I didn't look at your link until after I posted.
  • i only once try to have one BPC full package. that's the last one.


  • I have never actually used a blender for my BPC.  I find that shaking it intensely in a hydroflask does a great job.  http://www.amazon.com/Hydro-Flask-Narrow-Stainless-Bottle/dp/B0085K8B62/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1383725817&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=hydro+flask+narrow


    Plus it does an incredible job at keeping it warm.  I find the narrow mouth is the easiest to drink out of without spills.


     


    Even if you routinely use a blender, a hydroflask would be perfect for travel.  


    Remember, if you're arguing on the internet, you've already lost!

  • not sure what happened to the first few posts in this thread but all the links to the suggest travel blender are missing and the conversation appears to be about a Dr Who image! Amusing. Not too helpful though. 


     


    Anyone care to update with their preference/choice for a travel blender to BPC on in hotel rooms etc.? 


     


    Many thanks. 


  • I found this recently and thought I'd suggest it! http://www.sciencetoystore.com/contents/en-us/p84.html Incase the link stops working I'm sure a search for moo mixer should get some results.


  • An electric wand (stick) blender is more compact and does work well.

    Wish the milk frothier had a bit more power to emulsify the oil/coffee. 


    to bad cordless Dremel tools are so expensive


    Trying to get a grasp on Ketosis? Watch this!

    I take a travel mug and shake the concotion. The foam disapears after a while anyway. Also on the go I might even not carry a coffee machine and just add grounded beans and filter out solids.
