This Portable Blender Was Made for Making Margaritas on the Beach
Since our very own Ivy Odom appeared on the "Today" show in Hilton Head Island, we've had margaritas on our minds — and you can make them on-the-go thanks to this handy on-sale portable blender.
The PopBabies portable blender allows you to make your own blended drinks, like smoothies and margaritas, while you're relaxing on the sand at the beach this summer. The best part? Aside from fruit and margarita mix, the blender comes with everything you need, including the motor, an all-in-one 17-ounce mixing cup and water bottle, a funnel, and an ice cube tray for only $37. And using it is simple: Pop your ingredients inside, press the front button to start the blender, and enjoy your cold drink of choice after it mixes for as little as 45 seconds.

"I've used this thing non-stop for the last two months," wrote one shopper who mentioned they're happy with the variety of produce they're able to blend. They also added that the personal blender "makes a mean margarita." Another person echoed the sentiment: "I love the blender—great for making on-the-go smoothies and a real hit when pulled out at a small outdoor gathering to make daiquiris and margaritas."
The 175-watt portable blender is rechargeable with a USB, and it can make up to 20 drinks on a single charge. Plus, the blender's interior blades are made from stainless steel, and the cup is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup at the end of the day. Although the fun gadget is powerful at such a small size (it only weighs 1.3 pounds), it's important to use the included ice cube tray to make ice the right size and to cut fruit into 1.5-inch pieces to preserve the life of the blender's motor.
"I love it…I've convinced several people they need it too," shared a shopper who uses their blender daily. They noted that others simply "saw it in action" before deciding they needed to pick up their own.
Although there are plenty of canned drinks you can add to your cooler, a cold, freshly blended drink you can make right on the beach feels even more celebratory for summer. So, pick up a PopBabies Portable Blender in one of six colors while it's on sale for up to 26 percent off.
