  1. Milkshakes
    Milkshakes are a given, but what’s so great about using a drink mixer for milkshakes? It keeps the texture nice and thick, just like the shakes you get at a diner. Plus, you have the freedom to customize your shakes and malts. Keep it sweet and simple with chocolate, or add some crushed candies and cookies for a decadent treat. Or swap out candies for fresh, chopped fruit.
  2. Breakfast Batters
    Don’t reserve the drink mixer for dessert. Start your day with by mixing homemade buttermilk waffle or blueberry pancake batter right in your metal drink mixer cup. The cup also makes it easy to pour the batter directly onto your waffle maker or griddle.
  3. Omelets and Scrambled Eggs
    Skip the manual task of whisking eggs for omelets and scrambled eggs and use the drink mixer. The easy, quick mixing will create fantastically fluffy results. The drink mixer is perfect for mixing together omelet add-ins like cheese, chopped veggies and herbs.
  4. Smoothies & Protein Shakes
    Avoid powder clumps in your after-workout snack by using a drink mixer. Sized just right for a single-serve smoothie or protein shake, the drink mixer is great for mixing your favorite healthy drink to perfection.Hamilton Beach drink mixer pro mixing a milkshake
  5. Cocktails
    Put the cocktail shaker down and pour your ingredients into the drink mixer. The agitator can mix favorites like the bloody mary, martini and Manhattan to the perfect blend. Just pour over ice, garnish and serve. Or add a special kick to a milkshake by adding rum or a sweet liqueur.

Bonus Tip: For simple soups, use your drink mixer to combine the ingredients. This works well for soups without chunks like tomato basil. Once you’ve mixed the soup up, just pour it into a saucepan and heat.
