As a mum of 2 young children, water bottles are serious business. They need to fit in with our on-the-go lifestyle. We were recently gifted the BRAND NEW Sports Chiller drink bottle from SMASH to try out, here are our thoughts.
When I first opened the package my daughter said “oh no mummy, the lid is already missing!”. The lid was actually not missing, the brilliant thing about the sports chiller bottles is that… THERE IS NO LID (woohoo)! And the one-way performance valve makes sure that there are no leaks and you can rehydrate at the speed of light!
We think it’s perfect for our busy, on-the-go lifestyle for a few reasons.
- It holds a HUGE 640mL, so no need to bring a water bottle for each kid.
- The dual wall insulation keeps your drink 2.5x cooler than regular water bottles. Which is great for outdoor activities.
- No more condensation! It has an amazing sweat free design which means no more wet hands and puddles in your handbag!
We all know that keeping hydrated in the cooler months can be difficult. The sports chiller’s wide opening means it’s the perfect bottle to get fancy with your water (and it’s so easy to clean)! Below I’ve shared 5 awesome (and easy) flavoured water ideas that taste so good it’s impossible for you to forget to keep sipping from your sports chiller!
Jalapeno & Watermelon Water
In this zesty recipe from Food Network, you’ll find juicy watermelon which is loaded with vitamins A and C. And spicy jalapeños that contain capsaicin, which causes the body to release endorphins (the happiness hormone).
Lime & Basil Water
Olive Heart shares a green inspired recipe. Adding tart lime and fragrant basil to water, giving it a boost of vitamin C and iron.
Apple & Cinnamon Water
Sarah’s Cool Stuff combines cinnamon sticks, ground cinnamon, and apples to flavour her water. Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar concentration and improves insulin sensitivity. While apples have been shown in studies to help a wide spectrum of ailments from staving off Alzheimer’s to protecting against colon cancer.
Orange & Vanilla Water
Detoxinista hydrates with this simple recipe for orange and vanilla infused water. If you don’t have vanilla bean handy, you can substitute the pod with vanilla extract – both are naturally high in antioxidants.
Blackberries & Sage
The Yummy Life puts a spin on water by adding blackberry and sage. Blackberries are full of fibre, while sage contains vitamin A and a variety of minerals like calcium and iron.
Sports Chiller water bottles are available to buy exclusively from Coles for $10.
