Ice, Ice Baby!

RACHEL XIE has found a new hot-weather best friend in this “magic cup”, which pro­duces re­fresh­ing slushies in mere min­utes. VERDICT “I love the idea of hav­ing an easy-to-make icy treat ev­ery day. And the ‘mag­i­cal’ freez­ing process will wow kids, too.”

Re­mem­ber those icy, vividly hued slushies you used to buy and slurp from the con­ve­nience store? Now, you can make your own healthy (or sin­ful, if you like) ver­sion in just five min­utes with the Zoku Slush & Shake Maker. The in­su­lated cup ab­sorbs heat from any liq­uid you put into it, freez­ing it al­most in­stantly into a crushed-ice tex­ture.


First, leave the 200ml cup in the freezer for at least eight hours. When you’re ready to make your slushy, take the cup out and pour in your bev­er­age, prefer­ably chilled. Let it sit for two min­utes, then use the slush spoon to scrape the ice crys­tals form­ing on the in­ner walls into the mid­dle of the cup, so that the rest of the liq­uid can “freeze”.

The num­ber of slushies you can make be­fore hav­ing to re­freeze the cup de­pends on the liq­uid. Thin­ner ones like ap­ple juice and beer freeze the fastest – within five min­utes – while thicker liq­uids like milk take up to 10 min­utes. I made one juice and one milk slushy be­fore hav­ing to re­freeze the cup.

Whether it was yuzu juice, choco­late malt or strawberry milk, all my slushies turned out with an ice­blended tex­ture, ev­ery time.
