5 Reasons Why Stainless Steel Smoothie Cups are Perfect for You

If you're a busy mum, you know that breakfast can be hard to fit in. Between getting the kids ready for school and dropping them off at soccer practice, it's hard to find time to take care of yourself. Smoothies are a delicious and great way to get the nutrients your body needs and to keep you fuelled for a busy day.

Here are 5 reasons why smoothie cups are perfect for busy mums:

1. Smoothie cups are a great way to get the nutrients your body needs

More and more mums are looking for easy and convenient ways to get the nutrients their bodies need. One popular option is smoothies but even finding the few minutes to sit down on a busy morning just doesn't happen. Smoothies make it easy to get the fruits, vegetables, and other nutrients your body needs and an insulated smoothie cup keeps it cold and fresh for hours after it's blended. Smoothie cups are a great option for busy people who want to make sure they're getting the nutrients their bodies need.

2. Smoothie cups make it easy to fit breakfast in

Breakfast is often called the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. A healthy breakfast provides the body with the energy and nutrients it needs to start the day. Unfortunately, many of us find it difficult to fit breakfast into our busy schedules. Smoothies are a great solution for those who want to make sure they get a nutritious breakfast without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Smoothies are quick and easy to make, and they can be enjoyed on the go when kept fresh in a Montii smoothie cup, double wall insulation guarantees your smoothie will be cool for at least six hours.  Make a double batch for you and your little one and you are both out the door quickly.

3. Smoothie cups are convenient, perfect for busy mums

Smoothie cups are a great way for busy moms to get a quick and healthy breakfast on the go. Instead of skipping breakfast altogether or eating unhealthy convenience foods, blend your smoothie pop it in your smoothie cup and jump in the car, you are sorted. The Montii NZ original smoothie cup is dishwasher safe, comes in a range of stylish colours and fits in most New Zealand car drink holders.

4. A smoothie cup can help you stay hydrated

It's no secret that staying hydrated is important for your overall health. But sometimes it can be difficult to get in your eight glasses a day, especially if you're always on the go. When you have finished your morning smoothie, rinse your cup out and refill it with cool water. Keep your smoothie cup close and stay hydrated as you move through your day.

5. Versatile and eco friendly

Love an iced coffee or a cheeky milkshake? Smoothie cups don't have to only be used for smoothies. Have your favourite barista make your iced coffee and use your smoothie cup to avoid a single-use cup. Not only will it stay cool longer and look more stylish, but you are also making a good choice for the planet too.

Setting the right example

One of the most important things you can do for your kids is set a good example. That doesn't mean you have to be perfect, but it does mean being conscious of the choices you make and how they might impact your children. For instance, if you're trying to teach your kids a healthy breakfast is important, it's going to be a lot more difficult if you're not having breakfast. On the other hand, if you they see you making the time to also have a nutritious meal, your kids will be more likely to follow suit. By setting a good example for your kids, you can give them a strong foundation for making healthy choices in their own lives.

    Loving our new smoothie cups, keeps everything beautifully chilled, and your hands don't get cold! And you look stylish all at the same time!! Really pleased with our cups, and I got a matching coffee cup as well which is just as awesome.


    Sarah P. Verified Buyer - 5 stars

    Having two young kids Life can get quite busy and I realised I was forgetting to drink enough water! So I got this after seeing it on a FB story. Total treat but really worth it. Keeps my water / smoothie cold for kindy drop offs and easy to pick up and sip when around the house. Highly recommend! Hardest part was choosing which colour to get.


    Nikki. Verified Buyer - 5 stars

    This is also leak proof, my toddler has been tipping it upside down (still learning to use a straw) and nothing has been coming out. I should have got two of these!


    Chelsea P. Verified Buyer - 5 stars

    I brought one for each family member! And they all love them! Keeps our drinks cold for hours.
