Frozen beverage machines are a must-have in restaurants all around the world. When you go out to eat, you’re bound to find one of these commercial FUB (frozen un-carbonated beverage) machines on a counter top or behind a bar. Although these machines often get the reputation that they are specifically designed to make margaritas, we’re here to prove that wrong. Spaceman frozen beverage machines are capable of making a variety of drinks, not just the famous alcoholic ones you’re familiar with.
Slushies are another popular beverage that our machines are used for. Slushies have the same consistency as frozen cocktails, but they tend to be non-alcoholic. Slushies can be made by using a combination of sodas, juices, syrups, and/or concentrates. While frozen cocktails are a popular drink choice at restaurants, slushies tend to be sold at convenience stores, amusement parks, movie theaters, and drive-thrus. Slushies are extremely profitable due to being able to produce them at such a low cost.

Frozen beverage machines make great smoothies. Long gone are the days when you need to combine fruit, milk, ice, juice, etc., into a blender and play around with the consistency until you get it just right. This just isn’t practical, especially when it comes time to serving dozens of customers at a time. With a Spaceman USA machine, you can make your batches beforehand, and as long as your Brix level is between 12 and 18, any fruit mixture you make will come out of the machine as a perfect, cold, smoothie.
Now we move onto the less healthy cousin to smoothies – milkshakes. Most milkshakes are made from a combination of ice cream, milk, flavorings, sauces, and/or syrups.
Using a frozen beverage or milk shake machine for shakes is a huge operational win! Compared to scooping and hand spinning shakes, or even using soft serve as a base, the product from a milk shake machine will come out perfectly ready to be served. Or, you can turn up the viscosity a bit so that you can still mix in toppings and syrups – but still, saving time in operations!
The one thing to keep in mind while making milkshakes with your frozen beverage machine is that when using dairy products, your machine should be cleaned daily, or according to local health codes.
