    Hi, Ive got a LT shaker for my shakes which is fine, apart from trying to get the flippin lid off (expecially in my weakened state - lol). Everytime I make a shake I end up with brown lumps of powder (only have choc shakes). Is there a knack to it. I put the water in the shaker then tip the shake in, then shake like crazy.. whilst presently I would love to eat something, I do not want these lumps :D

    Whats the best way to do your shakes? thanks Lisa

    best to mix with cold water and with a hand blender - but, i can't use one at work, so i use a shaker. i have to shake for a good couple of minutes, there are a couple of lumps, but the vast majority are gone.

    good luck

    I use a shaker (one people use to make up their muscle bulking shakes) and i have no lumps at all...however i do find that some of the shake powder (all choc too) sometimes collects at the spout of the shaker. I just poke it back in and shake again!

    I bought an electric blender at Tesco, only cost £5 - done the job brilliantly.

    OH NO! NO NO NO! I have that blender.
    Firstly, it's HUGE! Secondly, the only time I've tried to use it and NOT been covered in food mess is when I made a huge pot of curry and could submerge it near the bottom of the pot. Of course, I may not be using it properly but man I hate that ugly phallic thing taking up my cupborad space.

    I use a celebrity slim shaker and it does the business -same as Pizzle - powdery pout (hehehe) but push it in, and shake shake shake senora. The BEST way though is in a blender with ice! mmmmmm

    I'm on my way to make an iced vanilla latte dont you know. :D

    Ive just had my first shake (day one :)) and i used a bowl and a normal hand whisk.
    There was very minimal lumps, i think that because im a chef, and ive spent 14 years perfecting my whisking action. lol
    My partner also started today, she will need a shaker for work, which we forgot to pick up from the chemist yesterday :(
    off to buy a smoothie maker/blender today, as its been suggested that we crush ice with our shakes.
    I would reccomend the milk frothers that you get from ikea (or most places) they are about £3, silver, and have a tiny whisk on the end. This will get a smooth finish, and it battery operated, and small enough to fit in your handbag/etc (approx 5'')
    Hope this helps :)

    Crushed ice is great for the shakes, I agree.
    I stick my cubes in the empty LT packet and bash away with the bottom of my (heavy!) glass.

    Great tip about the Ikea whisk though - I'm off there tonight so will look out for one. I'm going to buy a bookcase, so clearly will come back with piles of other stuff i don't really need, lol :)

    Just got back from Asda, all excited, as we found a blender/smoothie maker for £6! Plugged it in ready to try our 2nd shake... and it doesnt bloody work :(
    Had to mix them by hand, as both starving, and will go back and swap it later. Poo!
