No Vitamix or Margarittaville mixer? No problem.

Hi folks, my many years of exploratory cooking has taught me that not all kitchen gadgets are the same. Not all knives are the same, as not all blenders are the same; especially when you're making frozen drinks. Well, with the warm weather happening up us, I have a work-around especially for those that may not have a really powerful blender i.e. vitamix, ninja, margaritaville, etc.

I will use the Dove Chocolate Discoveries New White Chocolate Mango Mojito Mix as an example. (Photo credit)





It comes in a easy to mix packet with instruction on who much liquid and ice to blend it with. What I recommend is blending mixes/powder and liquid separately from the ice. That way you can be sure to get the lumps out and end up with a nice even flavor mixture. 

Next, crush ice as best you can in the blender. Once the two are ready, add liquid to blender first then the crushed/broken ice and power up. The now smaller pieces of ice should easily create a nice slushy margarita type of drink. Or, just crush in some extra mint leaves, stir in some ice and garnish to create a mojito any mixologist would be proud off. (Photo credit)
