    Does anyone have any tips on getting the lumps out? I've tried making it into a paste but then it won't mix properly. I think I should invest in a proper blender rather than using an electric whisk...

    Hi, I have mine warm/hot and I mix them with a hand held whisk then I seive them, absolutely smooth.
    For cold ones, I use ice cubes and blend, comes out like mcdonalds milkshakes...

    I've got blenders all over the place, one at home, one at my mams, one at work haha. I could never have survived either without it, how can anyone drink a lumpy shake yyuuuukkkk.

    I remember years and years ago I was on the Cambridge Diet and all you got was a beaker to shake it about it. It was gross.

    Hold on a sec, AbFab, don't dash off and buy the first blender that someone mentions, lol - there's lots of different ones out there!

    My own personal fave is Micromark - £12.99 on eBay - Micromark Hand Blender 2 Speed (White) 200W on eBay, also Other Small Appliances, Small Appliances, Kitchen, Home Garden (end time 21-Apr-09 13:53:04 BST) - two speeds, and a thousand times better than the Woolies one I had before! (Note:- very cheap doesn't always mean very good, either!)

    But you do need a blender - I blend everything now. :)

    Yeah the idea was to show the type of blender rather than a way of convincing you to buy it.

    How are the shakes now??? All smooth I hope xx
