    I was wondering what methods you folks use to mix your shakes and soups. I tend to have mine at the office so without a kitchen, it's a bit tricky. My method involves one of those protein shake mixer beakers and I then add either hot or cold water from the vending machine. This is alright for shakes (which I always have cold) but when I use hot water, it tends to leak as if there's trapped air in it? I have to give it a bit of a stir, shake it, then release the lid to let the air out and then start again. And I've learned if I add the soup before the water it turns gloopy straightaway and won't mix properly.

    Anyone got any better ideas?

    I bought a cheap hand blender from Tescos and left it in my work office when I did it before. I tend to add half boiling water, top up with a bit of cold to make it around 400ml then add the sachet and blend/whisk.

    Can also add salt and pepper to taste :)

    Using the shaker cup that I do, it seems to work much better when I add the soup (or shake) after the water. I think the sooner you mix it, the better.

    I'm glad this thread wasn't what I first thought it might be about when I saw the title. :D

    I use a Phillips hand blender that I got at Argos for £17. It's lovely and easy to clean, mixes the shakes nice and frothy with no clumps. I highly recommend it. It comes with a beaker thing to mix in that shows measurements so you can just pour the water straight in to the right amount, then add the powder and blend.
