Best one-serving mix containers?


#1

Curious as to what kind of containers everyone’s using for single servings… I’m particularly interested in containers that clean super-easily that don’t hold a smell. I’m actually thinking glass might be good for this, but I’m wondering what other types of containers people have been using.


#2

20 oz. Blender Bottle. Cleans easily, doesn’t hold odors. I don’t even bother with the ball anymore. Since the bottle is small and light, it’s really easy to shake it vigorously.


#3

Another vote for the Blender Bottle, though I prefer the larger 28- and even 32-oz sizes.


#4

Mason jars make for an easy glass solution.


#5

Would used 2.0 bottles be good? I haven’t received my 2.0 yet so I don’t know what they’re like.


#6

I’ve been refilling mine with my DIY, but it’s already mixed in the pitcher, I don’t think the 2.0 bottles would be convenient to try and mix single servings.


#7

Narrow opening on 2.0 bottles. Like a frappuccino bottle. Not as bad as a soda lid but still much smaller than a blender bottle. So it probably would be annoying to some level getting powder into the bottles.


#8

That’s what I use too.


#9

I keep 'em in the freezer; I always have a nice, frosted soylent glass. :smile:


#10

Nice! They’re so easy to shake for mixing and easy to clean.

16 oz water bottles and a bottle brush:

I’ve been using the Sun’s Tea 18 oz. glass travel mug (I don’t know why they call it a mug, it’s really a blender bottle) for well over a year now, very happily. Easy to shake your Soylent in it, easy to clean. (Don’t neglect to clean the silicone seal from the lid separately, though.)


#13

I prefer the 28 ounce but to each his own!


#14

I have the 28 also (it’s also quite excellent), but the 20 is easier to clean and I’m encouraged to drink smaller meals to help with weight loss.


#15

I’ll second (or third) mason jars (16oz).

Also, perfect for fresh brewing tea for use in Soylent: put in tea bag, fill jar about halfway with hot water, let steep as desired, add Soylent powder after cooled, seal and shake, open top up with water.


#16

How many meals do you split a bag into? I’ve got 28 oz bottles but have considered buying some 20’s. But doing 4 meals at 500ml it seems like it’d be a little full / maybe harder to shake it up?


#17

I do small meals, about 300 calories(12 oz.). I could comfortably do 400 calories(16 oz.). 500 calories(20 oz.) should work ok if you did the half water/add powder/rest water process.

Target sells a blender bottle that has a solid ball with wings. It’s $10 and works well. Easy to clean with just water and mixes well too. I actually prefer it over the more expensive “Blender Bottle” brand with the metal mixing ball.
