Default Best Way to Break up Pre-Mixed Shakes?

Sometimes in order to save work, I like to use protein shake mixes.
But they clump up.

I have heard a few tips, such as putting an ice cube in the mix, using
really cold water, and so on, but I was wondering if anyone here had
any other ideas.

I know Braun makes an electric thing specifically for mixing thick
drinks.

No electricity needed! Buy 3! 1 for Ranch Dressing, 1 for drinks and 1 for
adding guar gum to things.

My Low Carb Isopure makes clumps that stick like superglue.

My solution is to use disposable 16 ounce plastic cups for it.

I have two shakers I got free with orders from Netrition.. it has a *screen*
style section instead of the *wheel* one like form Tupperware.. I usually
use the blender but the shaker works great if I am in a hurry.. breaks up
the clumps much better.

i found that by starting with a little water and the mix in the blender,
then adding water until it was the consistency i want, i get fewer clumps.
when i started with the full amount of water and just dumped in the mix, it
took a lot longer...
