Recently, I received the Revablend from the manufacturer to take it for a test spin. Out of the box, I noticed it looked and felt like a smoothie bottle, the only difference being the blades at the bottom. I was super excited to see what this muscle-powered blender could do, so I grabbed a banana, spinach, blueberries, strawberries, spirulina, protein powder, and some almond milk. I twisted the blades by hand to chop and mix the ingredients. Then, I tilted the Revablend forward at approximately 30° and “Rev’d” it across my kitchen counter. At first, I felt a little awkward, but I quickly got the hang of rolling the Revablend back and forth. When I felt the ingredients were well blended, I took a sip and was pretty impressed with how well the smoothie tasted. All of the ingredients blended well together, with the exception of the blueberry skin. So I made a note to self not to use fruits with thicker skins, such as blueberries or cherries in the future. The following day, I used strawberries, banana, almond milk and protein powder, which blended up nicely.
In a nutshell, I think the Revablend is great for on-the-go, especially if you’re going to the park, to work, for a hike, or hitting the gym. Not to mention, you’re reducing your carbon footprint by using the Revablend instead of an electric blender and you’re getting a workout at the same time!
