The monkey house was apparently in need of new mixer although the one i use for these (my blog) still works if a bit messy but i dont care about that.
In the end a smallish one was located although the video demonstration of it showed it chopping tomatoes so it was not a smoothie maker. When i pointed this out to the rest of monkey house they thought it funny. Sigh
It is not as noisy and a lot more airy and cleaner so a bit of an improvement if unnecessary.
