We can all admit that breakfast is the easiest meal to skip, even though it is the most important meal of the day. Smoothies are a popular solution because they are quick to make and highly delicious. Why not prep the ingredients in advance and blend it before you leave the house. Sipping your smoothie on the way to work is a healthy, convenient and refreshing way to start the day on the right foot.
The Smoothie Cup by Luxey Cup is the ultimate accessory to assist you in breaking old habits while looking after the planet. It’s made from borosilicate glass, which is a lighter and stronger alternative to ordinary glass and can be recycled. The good-looking cup includes measurements etched on the side and your choice of reusable straws. The set also includes two lids that actually stay on — one for hotter drinks with a small mouth opening, and a cold lid for cooler drinks with a larger hole to house a straw. The fully enclosed silicone base makes it non-slip, stylish, and super-comfortable to carry — and when you’ve finished your drink you can store the cup in Luxey Cup’s famous dual-walled cotton canvas carry bag, which is also included alongside a straw cleaner. This Australian-owned company also provides the shopper with the option to order its product with as much zero waste packaging as possible or pretty packaging that is also 100 per cent recyclable.
Smoothies are ideal for increasing your daily fruit and vegetable intake, improving hydration and digestion, and pimping your standard protein shake. And now you can upgrade your reusable coffee cup and be prepared if your tastebuds crave something fruity at your local café because you are ready for both beverages with the Luxey Smoothie Cup.
