    i use a hand blender thingy, and i start whisking up the water first and then slowly pour in the shake mix

    I use the blade attachment on a hand blender rather than the whisk, seems to do the trick.

    Sounds like you might need something with a bit more umph than your electric whisk.

    Like Mocha and Eclipse, I use the blade attachment on my electric hand blender which (I think) is a Braun and packs 600W.

    What make is your whisk and how many Watts is it?

    I think the actual blender part of a hand blender is much better than the whisk .. I must admit I only have choc mint shakes , which dont seem to have the lumps , with the ocassional banana or strawberry , but the lumps in these put me off !!

    I'm the same .. I use the blender rather than a whisk .. the whisk just seems to push it around rather than break it up.

    Water first is best to stop the powder clumping to the sides of the jug; I dump all the powder in in one go and then blend for a good 30-40 seconds.

    i use either a shaker with the grid thingy in it or a shaker with the metal whisk ball in it

    yep it takes effort to shake em but i count it as exercise.
    and if im tired then i get my otherhalf to do it for me, lol

    I bought a shaker from Boots ages ago. I just put everything in and shake really hard for about a minute and it does the job really well. No lumps at all.

    Hi, well done for persevering despite the lumps!! I cannot abide them and would rather go hungry!!
    What works for me is a proper blender (with jug and base etc) and i add 250 mls water, the sachet and give it a quick whizz, then add almost an entire tray of ice and whizz for about a min. It is noisy as hell, but when it goes quiet you know its done! That will then give me about a pint of thick icy shake a bit like a cross between a slush puppy and a McDonalds milkshake ( sort of ;-) ) and it lasts for ages.
    If you don't have a blender and intend to do Cambridge for a while I would def invest in one, or beg, borrow or steal!!!
    Hope that helps,
    happy blending!!!
    Katy x
