When we travel to hotels we usually make smaller, “daily” batches of Chocolate Bliss. We have found that an 18 ounce thermos full of Bliss (and ice) will keep one person satisfied and energized for a full-on day of workshops and events (we have successfully proven this in several situations).
Here’s how we make this smaller travel size portion of Chocolate Bliss:
Bring a small portable blender, like this Hamilton Beach blender we use. (If you’re taking your blender in a carry-on bag, make sure the blade is NOT removable from the container. Sometimes they check and confiscate it if it’s removable!)
Pour 8 ounces of water into the blender (seems to be the perfect amount for blending). Add
3.75 Tbsp (1.75 oz) of Chocolate Bliss
3 Tbsp (1.5 oz) of Vanilla Agave Nectar
Blend well (this will take longer than a Vitamix since it’s so small).
Then put this blended mixture in a 18 oz Thermos and fill it up with water, leaving about 2 inches room for ice. Add more ice as the day progresses and you drink down the Bliss. The Bliss will be a little extra chocolatey at the beginning of the day and just right by the end of the day as the ice melts and you continue to add more ice.
If you like to add more superfoods to your Bliss, like our Personal Bliss Recipe, the ratios are as follows:
1 Tbsp added superfood in a 1 gallon Bliss = 1/2 tsp in the 18 oz travel size Bliss
1 tsp added superfood in a 1 gallon Bliss = heaping 1/8 tsp in the 18 oz travel size Bliss
For us that means we add 1/2 tsp each of Guarana, Bee Pollen, and Tocos and 1/8 tsp Yerba Matte to our travel size Bliss.
