There are plenty of things you miss when you’re traveling: Your dog, your own bed, your plants, and of course your go-to matcha-making tools. Sticking a bamboo whisk and tea bowl or blender into your carry-on isn’t exactly a space saver, but wellness blogger Alison Wu recently shared a tip on her Instagram Stories that’ll make it possible for you to enjoy your antioxidant-rich green-tea drink on the go: packing a blender ball.

While blender balls are popularly used to mix protein shakes, the device is also a great under-the-radar tool for brewing quality matcha. Instead of hoping that the airport has a solid stable of wellness-beverage offerings or that your Airbnb is equipped with the proper utensils (a girl can dream!), make your own superfood latte on the fly by simply sticking a smoothie shaker in your travel mug.

Wu’s favorite stainless steel shaker balls are available on Amazon for $7 (you never know when you’ll need a backup!), and with them in your travel arsenal, you may never have to check off any places from your ever-growing bucket list without your favorite energizing drink in hand.

This matcha brand wants you to sip your way to healthy, glowy skin and hair. Also, this superfood latte might be more popular than matcha this year.
