    I bought a hand blender from Tesco, i think it was £15, its great. I wouldnt cope without it now.
    I tend to use a latte mug so i can fill it up to the top whether it s a choc shake or soup.

    I put 350ml of hot water in the jug, pour in the shake and whisk for about 30 seconds. Pour it into the mug and top up with cold water, perfect drinking temp everytime and it fills me up :) x

    I have a JML Magic Bullet for making my shakes. I use about 6 ice cubes and then top that up to about 200 ml (I like mine thick).

    I would highly recommend (if you haven't already got one) getting a fairly high powered electric handheld blender (600W or so) cos they're much better at crushing ice - and making mousse, I've found. :eating:
