Summer milkshake mastery 101

As American as apple pie and convertible summers, the milkshake is a legend. But did you know milkshakes actually inspired the invention of the blender – and the bendy straw? True story. 

Of course, this sweet indulgence wasn’t always the kid-friendly craving it is today. The first milkshakes were actually egg-based, created for whisky-loving adults. Booze was inevitably booted from most recipes but the resulting malt powder milk drinks proved difficult and messy to make.

Enter the first electric blender. It was born because of the milkshake and made blending up ice cream, fruit and syrup a breeze. Milkshakes have long been used by sneaky moms to conceal vitamins and greens when children have a picky palate. And nothing beats a chunky strawberry milkshake paired with a charred burger, melted with cheddar cheese and pickles. 

Fast forward decades later: BlendJet portable blender takes blending one giant step further allowing you to make a milkshake anywhere without having to plug in. The electric blender alternative is quiet and so convenient. Use it in the backyard, on the beach and by the pool all BBQ season long. We created the perfect insulated accessories to keep your ice cream, milk, whipped cream and maraschino cherries cold on the go.
