Frosty Beverage Mixers

The Zoku Slush and Shake Maker is Fast and Easy to Use

— April 3, 2013 — Art & Design
Make ice-cold beverages in as little as seven minutes with the Zoku Slush and Shake Maker From Williams-Sonoma.

Incredibly easy to use, all you have to do is freeze the inner compartment ahead of time, pour in ingredients and watch as the liquid turns into a thick and icy concoction right before your eyes. It can be used with chocolate milk, purees, fruit juices and more, and within minutes the beverages are ready to be enjoyed. A long scraper spoon helps with mixing up the drinks to keep a nice and smooth consistency, great for staying cool in the summer heat.

Because it is so easy and fast to use, small children can also enjoy creating ice-cold beverages with the Zoku Slush and Shake Maker.
