I recently had to get rid of my old blender and was going to pick up a new one when I realized I had another option already in my home. You may have seen the infomercials for a product called the Magic Bullet. Well, I have a product very similar and works in the same way. If you're not familiar with it, it is a blender, but much smaller and more convenient than the average sized ones.
If you don't use a blender for much except blending drinks, then it is so much faster and the clean-up is a lot easier too. I tried out my version of the Magic Bullet by mixing up today's Shakeology. I put in my powder, poured in my milk, and threw in a few ice cubes. I attached the cap with the chopping blade and blended away.
It was quick and easy and only minutes to clean up compared to my old blender. I highly recommend this type of blender or one that is equivalent. Sensio has a similar version called the Rocket Blender. I'm sure either will work great for mixing up Shakeology, protein shakes, and smoothies.
