Ice (and crushing it)

No that is what I had before. I treated myself to a jug one from Lidl this week. Only £14.99 and crushes ice brilliantly.

i've got a hand blender... you don't think the ice will knack up the blades? otherwise i will do that for my shake in about 30mins...

It depends on the blender! I had a tesco value £4 jobby and the insides melted and smoked trying to do ice with that! :eek: But have now got a posh tesco one for £15 which does the job brilliantly! I used to have a good braun (i think) one which did ice well but seem to have lost that! Doh! Happy blending! I can't have the shakes without ice now, makes a huge difference!

If you can afford it I would try and get yourself a decent blender with a glass jug. It totally transforms the shakes into lovely thick smoothie type creations. You can also make ice cream by using more ice and less water. Fab

Put the ice in a plastic bag, then wrap it in a teatowel and bash the hell out of it - that's how i did it before i got my magic bullet blender!

Yep was gonna recommend a plastic bag and a rolling pin :giggle: :giggle: Might not be high tech, but gets rid of some aggression too!! :D

I had a jug blender from Tesco for £10. It did it brilliantly, however it doesn't last forever anf mine broke on Monday..argggh!!! Just got a new one from Asda, it's cack!! It just brakes the ice into small grains - will have to have a snoop round Lidl.
