My Ambronite flavor favorites favorites include blueberries wild bilerries, lingonberries (delish + highly nutritious, exceptional ORAC and bilberries also a great source of anthocyanins) and occasionally raspberries and strawberries as a bonus.
Added these wild babies to my after-climb Ambronite in the woods a few weeks ago. Crush & quick shake, done!
Lately I’ve experimented a lot with cold pressed 100% juices. These can be added in small drips, as they pack a real punch, and are full of condensed flavor and very low in sugar. Any red berries, like redcurrants, work great.
After a workout / run Blackcurrant juice gives a great freshness and taste, and I don’t mind the few added calories after working out either.
Lunchtime Beet juice / Ginger gives a satisfying flavor for a mid-day Ambronite.
With juices, I just use the shaker.
For berry and fruit blends, I’ve used several blenders. The BlendTec is the gold standard, but definitely not required and even quite overkill THB. The result is virtually the same with a cheap blender with +20 secs of blend time, as there’s no need to really crush the ingredients.
