Quick-freeze solution

Mix up slushies with the Zoku Slush and Shake Maker.

Set the inner core upright in a freezer for six to 18 hours, then slip it into its outer sleeve, pour in chilled liquids (sweet coffee, chocolate milk, juice) and add elbow grease plus Zoku’s plastic spoon to scrape down the cup’s walls.

After seven minutes, you’ve got a slushy refresher.

The three-piece set (inner core, sleeve, spoon), is BPA- and phthalate-free and comes in several colors.

Cost is $19.95 at williams-sonoma.com.
