Tips for a sorta weird breakfast commute. Make-ahead smoothie base?

Two questions regarding an impending long, early morning commute and smoothies (in order of importance): have you found a "base smoothie mix" I can make in advance on Sundays (and possibly Wednesdays) for use later in the week that I can add frozen berries/granola to for a quick breakfast? And also, is there a badass (stainless steel, preferably) ~32 oz thermos/cup with a lock-tight sealing lid that you love?

Assume no dietary restrictions, but I'd like to keep things healthy (i.e. no unnecessary bad fats - any veggies or whatever I can add to the mix are preferred, assuming they won't turn after ~48-72 hours). My commute will involve ~25 minutes in the car followed by a quick dash to an hour-long bus ride. Ideally, I'd like to scoop some awesome make-ahead base-mix into my magic new container, add some thawed-frozen berries, drive down to my bus and then add my granola and eat my breakfast with a spoon when I'm no longer behind the wheel.
Container-wise, the thing I'm most worried about is spillage between the house and bus and the fact that I may not *always* have time to rinse it before I'm in class for 2.5 hours. Plus, I don't much care for plastics.
