For travel, I just use my Contigo insulated bottle, give it a quick shake, and that’s all that is needed. I’ve never tried mixing any up on the go though, I would just use the provided pitcher, but a smaller bottle will work fine too. The bigger issue is letting it sit to soak everything up well, and get cold.
[quote=“latem, post:1, topic:13424”]Do you feel blending is necessary at all?
If you mean with a blender, I would say not at all. Someone else (don’t recall who exactly) said that actually messed things up.
[quote=“latem, post:1, topic:13424”]Do you feel that prepared Soylent needs to sit overnight to be drinkable? Even if the water itself is already chilled?
My first batch was made with a pitcher that had been sitting overnight with some water in it, so was very cold and had ice in it. The problem I found was that the powder tended to stick to the ice, and really didn’t disperse very well. It also didn’t get cold really at all, so IMO it needs to sit at least maybe 3 to 4 hours both for absorption as well as getting cold.
Ice added to a container works for a while, but obviously it won’t stay all that cold if it’s not insulated.
[quote=“latem, post:1, topic:13424”]Do you fill the pitcher to the very top with water? Or, do you do equal scoops of powder and water? Which do you prefer?
I fill the pitcher to just below the green ring. I also tried making it at the 1:1 suggested ratio and we didn’t care for it nearly as much. We definitely prefer it slightly thinner.
[quote=“latem, post:1, topic:13424”]In what order do you add your ingredients (water, powder, oil)?
My current method is:
- Add ~2 inches water to pitcher
- Add 1 pouch Soylent
- Shake shake shake, move your body
- Add oil
- Add remainder of water
- Repeat step 3
- Put in fridge at least several hours
When about to serve, give it another good shake since the oil can separate if it’s sat a while.
Hope that helps!
