Best Milkshake Mixers

Updated on March 20, 2012

Shake Makers

There are few things nicer than mixing up your own milkshake..especially on a beautiful, warm day when the sun is shining and you're just hanging loose, enjoying some leisure time. Be it a healthy concoction of soy milk mixed with bran and lecithin or a decadent shake with full cream milk, sweet syrup amd crushed ice, a milkshake maker is just a fun and useful kitchen implement to have around.

There so many varieties of milkshake mixers on the market it's hard to know which one to buy. Things to consider are: function, ease of use (including being easy to clean), quality, looks and price.

As with most things, you get what you pay for and it's worth investing in a solidly built milkshake mixer, rather than a flimsy cheap one, even if it looks really funky. Milkshake makers take a lot of punishment, so get a solid one.

It's also incredibly simple to operat - you just slip the cup over the mixing mbit and secure it onto the specially designed lips. Here's a very simple, delicious shake recipe to make in it:

  • One cup of pureed, pitted cherries (fresh is best but frozen will suffice)

Place ingredents in milkshake mixer and push the go button. Voila! A beautiful, fluffy, healthy cherry milkshake.
