My children just adore milkshakes so were super excited to try out the new ChillFactor Milkshake maker from Character toys. The cup is a well made, solid design and we couldn’t wait to get started trying it out.
The cup comes with a solid straw that has a spoon on the end to get any slushy bits at the end. The cup has an insulated inner with a solid outside. The lid has a handle with a special bit that comes down to mix it all up.
As with all ChillFactor cups you need to put them in the freezer first, in my experience overnight is best and you can guarantee you will then get the desired result. To make your milkshake you simply add flavoured milk into the frozen cup, in our case chocolate for a treat, add the lid and just shake and stir. In just a couple of minutes your flavoured milk will have turned into a thick, frothy, frozen style milkshake. My two children were so eager to try this that they worked together in creating their drink.
And this was the result!
The children took turns drinking through the straw which fits through the lid and informed me that it was utterly delicious and tasted like ice cream! As soon as they’d finished it, they made another one, as fortunately with this cup you can use it twice consecutively before it needs to go back in the freezer. This time they both wanted to get stuck in, so got an extra straw and very kindly shared it with each other.
I did taste the drink myself and have to say I’d happily drink it as I am a fan of milkshakes myself and it definitely tastes better than just flavoured milk. The cup is great fun and also gets the children used to making things for themselves. Why not give it a try?
