Shake Powder sticks to blender..help.

This may sound like a stupid problem....but I make a health food
shake for DS every morning...How do I keep from having the
powder stick to the sides of the blender??? I usually pour the
milk in then add the powder..Any advice????

How about scraping down the sides with a spatula?

Also, how about carefully pouring the powder in while the blender is on? The vortex should pulling the powder right down.

Also, It might clump in the bottom, but have you tried putting the powder in first?

My answer to everything that sticks! Spray the inside of the blender jar with Pam, then immediately put in freezer for a few minutes before making your shakes. This should help.

Hi, Carolyn! Another thing you might try is first running it on the very lowest speed on your blender--just to stir the ingredients before you go to full speed. Sometimes powders just splash up when the whizzing starts.

Also would think that scott's idea to run the blender while putting in the powder might work.....but don't run it too fast or it might explode out the top!!!

Curious...I've never had this problem although I make a protein shake nearly every morning. I first pour into the blender cup a cup of cold water or lc milk, then add my scoop of protein powder. I turn on the lowest power and this mixes the powder in very well. It never sticks to the sides. Then I add other things like cream cheese, ice, and frozen strawberries.

I use my stick blender and the blending cup that came with it.
Then I blend some water and detergent in the same cup, rinse, and I'm done!
