Tara Robbins and her family recently putthe Zoku Slush and Shake Maker to FOX 4’s Deal or Dud test.
It's designed to turn any liquid into a frozen treat, and that lets moms and dads control calories and sugar content.
For the test, the Robbins used Silk almond milk and Honest Kids juice drink.
Each unit comes with a spoon, cup and instructions to remove the inner core from the outer sleeve and freeze it.
A full 18 hours is recommended for freeze time for the cups – without any liquid inside. Once the cups are frozen, the cold liquid is added to them, taking about two minutes to set up.
Next, as the liquids begin to freeze, ice in the cup is supposed to be scraped from the sides and stirred every 60 seconds, but that part seemed to take a little longer when FOX 4’s Steve Noviello and the Robbins tried.
Eventually, the slushies were a success, and the Robbins kids agreed that the Slush and Shake Maker is a deal.
A quick word of advice -- the colder your liquid when you start, the faster and thicker your results.
