Okay, now that I’ve got my very first delivery, I’ve got to say this to those at Rosa Labs… WTF?!?
On Thursday I get an email saying “Hey! Your first shipment is coming!” and on Friday I get a “So now that you’ve gotten your Soylent take this survey, please.” First off, it didn’t arrive until Saturday and secondly, since I waited nearly six months for this to arrive, you could show a little patience in lieu of what you’ve asked others to endure. I mean, for chrissake! Give me a month or at least a week to try it already! lol
So, with that said, now that I’ve gotten it and tried it twice - breaking one’s self in slowly for the first week - I have to say, not bad.
What I’ve done - after reading much here - is that I’ve went out and bought a NutriBullet blender (don’t waste your money on a Magic one) and I’ve been making smoothies with it in preparation for this fateful delivery for three months now.
Normally, my smoothies recipe has been the following:
5 ice cubes
2 diced strawberries, some black and blue berries, and a third of a banana - all frozen and pre-made waiting in my freezer in little snack sized ziplock bags
1 quarter diced green apple
1/3 cup of greek yogurt
1 oz, acai juice
with pomegranate and pineapple juice to fill in the rest.
Very delicious. Now I took the same recipe and replaced the yogurt with Soylent.
Tastes just like a berry Poptart. Not as sweet but still enjoyable. Blended very well with the NutriBullet. Nothing gritty and no gaseous side effects - yet. This is the 1.3 upgrade, so who knows…
