Raspberry Lime Mocktail Recipe & Hamilton Beach Wave Station Review

Hamilton Beach Wave Station Dispensing Blender1This week I am very excited to share with you my review of the Hamilton Beach Wave Station Plus Dispensing Blender.

You all know how much my family and I love our Mocktail nights and I’ve been eyeing this gorgeous blender for quite some time. It is simply the perfect choice if you’re looking for a blender to make drinks with!

Perfect For Making A Mocktail

The selling features for me are:

  • 2 speeds and Pulse with 750 Watts of Peak power
  • The WaveAction® continuously forces the mixture down into the blades for NO MORE ICE CHUNKS regardless of the batch size
  • Convenient cup activated one-hand dispensing and jar design dispenses directly into the glass
  • Very light 48 oz. dishwasher safe glass jar with tilted bottom, ensures everything comes out and is dishwasher safe
  • Removable 2 oz. filler cup for adding and measuring ingredients while the blender in running
  • 5 year warranty for peace of mind year after year

Hamilton Beach Dispensing BlenderAdmittedly I had high hopes for this beauty and was really hoping it wouldn’t disappoint. In the past my vintage (old, decrepit) blender often left me with ice chunks and unblended ingredients which was both irritating and frustrating.

The Hamilton Beach Wave Station Plus didn’t disappoint! With a simple push of a button it smoothly crushed all of the ice and combined every last drop!

I was very impressed with the pour spout, the kids simply loved being able to serve themselves a second glass using the spout which conveniently stores beneath the spill guard (silver front plate).

Cleaning the blender is a snap, the spout screws right off for easy rinsing. The glass is super light which makes it simple for pouring and well frankly we’re loving this machine!

With a retail value of $76.99 this is a quality choice for anyone who wants to serve up healthy drinks or a mocktail or two!

  1. this looks amazing, raspberry and lime are winning combo. the kids would love that spout! our old blender left ice chunks too or started to smell like the motor was burning when we did ice lol not good!

  2. This looks awesome! I love the idea of Mocktails, especially since I’ve never drank alcohol. Will definitely have to try this out :) Sounds like the Hamilton Beach Blender did a great job too :)

  3. I have an older version of this blender – without the glass pitcher – and I LOVE IT! I think it’s the only blender I’ll use from here on out. And awesome recipe!!

  4. We are in the market for a blender I’m definately going to keep this in mind!! Ours is 12 years old and she makes a funny “WEEEEEE” noise when anything but baby food is put in her. I just sing along, our harmony is almost perfect.

  5. I’ve been looking for a blender which I could love, and this one just might be it. Your mocktail sounds and looks fantastic too!

  6. I need a new blender! This one sounds like it really does the job well and the drink sounds like it was delish! I never really make me any kind of special drink except for Coffee. I may just have to try this one.

  7. Okay now I am super tempted to upgrade our very old blender just because this one has a spout! I love that feature! The mocktail recipe sounds so delicious too!

  8. This looks yummy and refreshing! I don’t use a blender that often but mine keep giving out! I purchased a Magic Bullet to save counter space but I really like the pour feature on the Wave. I will have to check it out when my Magic Bullet dies. Based on experience…probably around the holidays :}
