Flax and Spinach Power Smoothie

This recipe comes from Jessa Hokayam of e2 events in Virginia. They whipped it up recently for a Bon Secours event, and it’s quickly becoming an e2 staple!

Prep It In Your Pitcher:

1. Place your banana in the bottom of the blender, closest to the blades.

2. Add 1 cup strawberries and 1/2 cup blueberries.

3. Add 1/2 cup fresh spinach.

4. Squeeze 1 tsp of lemon juice in your pitcher.

5. Add 1 tsp flax seeds and 2 tsp raw almonds.

6. Top off with 1 cup of ice (if not using frozen fruit) and 1/2 cup of water .

7. Cover with the lid and pop onto your bike blender! Blend until smooth (roughly 30 sec – 1 minute, depending on how hard you pedal), adding more water for desired consistency.

Serve immediately.

Makes 24 oz of smoothies, or double the recipes for you 48 oz High Performance pitcher.

 

For 120 -5oz servings this is what e2 recommends you buy:

3 cups flax

3 cups almonds

2 pounds blueberries

4.5 pounds strawberries

9 pounds bananas

50 oz (25 cups) spinach

6 quarts water

6 lbs ice

1 cup lemon juice

How Loud is the Blender?

How Loud is the Blender?

2894313556_e14fda6af7_z

We blended ice and water (the loudest thing you can blend) and found the following measurements:

At 2 feet, it peaked at 85db for the first few seconds and fell to 75-80 for the rest of the time.
At 5 ft, it peaked at 77 for the first few seconds and fell to 70-73.
At 7 feet, it peaked at 73 db for the first few seconds and fell to 65-70.
At 10 ft, it peaked at 71.

Db are logarithmic like the Richter scale. 85 is 10 times louder than 75.

You can reduce your noise leak to other booths significantly with some type of barrier like a dividing panel, at ear level.

We can’t say what the noise levels will be when people cheer for each other. Hope this helps!

Props to RTB customer Mark Harris for this fun video demonstrating one fun way to enjoy bike blending.

In his blog, the “Transcendental Art of Bicycle Blender Touring”, Mark documents his travels with the Fender Blender Xtracycle, in which he pulls edible food from the side of the road, adds an ingredient or two (sometimes just water) and blends on the go.

Same frame, same base. New Blendtec-made pitcher.

 

We’re changing the name of our high-end Bike Blenders from “Vitamix Upgrade” to “High Performance Upgrade” and including a Blendtec pitcher rather than a Vitamix pitcher. We’re also now offering new package pricing that will make it easier for customers to get 2 or 3 pitchers per bike. Having more pitchers is key to meeting the needs of a crowd. We will continue to sell both our value-priced Oster-compatible pitchers and our Vitamix brand pitchers.
