    Sorry to bother people...I've been making my hot chocolate the way I make normal hot chocolate.
    I've blended the water and powder as normal, using cold water, and then put it in a pan and heated it.
    It's lovely but am I destroying the nutrients that way? Should I just be making the shake with hot water?

    Ummm, I think I remember reading to make a paste first, like you did then add water from the kettle to the paste. But I could be wrong...

    I tend to make it like an instant hot chocolate.

    I still make the LT into a past with my sweetners and fibreclear using cold water and then just add hot water from the kettle using a tiny weeny little hot chocolate whisk. I don't think heating it in a pan will destroy any nutrients- it's only if you don't drink it within 15 mins that you may have a problem xx

    yip -as medea says -as long as its taken within the 15 minutes (need t practise what I preach here!) all the nutrients should still be there. -Carry on enjoying it! Lord knows theres not much to do with it! ;)

    There is no way you would be putting hot stuff in a blender! Not if you value your life!!!

    Remember when (I think Julz?) put hot stuff into her hand shaker....... :D

    Lol! My sis-in-law tried to make hot choc in her shaker and it exploded everywhere! She was lucky she didn't scold herself!!!! Tbh I haven't had the hot choc coz I wasn't sure how to make it nice and frothy - I think I hated the soup coz I couldn't get it blended well enough!

    What I do is, put the kettle on, then mix the sahke with a tiny amount of water in my shaker, then pour that into a BIG mug and top up with the boiled water. Its nice and frothy. Or I've blended it with teeny wtaer and done the same -shakin it is much easier.

    The first time I tried to make it it did NOt turn out well! Just made it like instant hot choc -lumpy -podery non chocolatey -made me gag. bad times lol I LURVE it now though :D

    I use an egg whisk which helps the frothiness! Or you can buy (for a couple of squids) a battery powered cappuccino whisk, which also helps with blending your moo-shakes if you want to drink out of a glass. I think most cookware places have them.

    The trick to using them is to make the LT into a paste with cold water, top with your hot water and using the blender just below the surface of the liquid.

    Or if you are lucky enough to have a Gaggia coffee machine (like me- it was a christmas pressie!), just use the spout that makes the frothy milk! Means you can make it cold and just use the steam to heat it! :D

    When making my cold shakes I use my normal plastic shaker, but when making soup or a hot shake, I use an electric handblender so that it froths chocolate and really blends soup well.
    I also have bought a rechargeable handblender from EBAY to take to work so that I can have hot shakes there as well...

    Making hot Choc Shake

    Just for anyone out there who would like to know how to make hot choc shake. This is what I do for mine.Boil my water allow to cool down.Add to the water a spoon of coffee and my sweetner.then add choc/vanilla shake and blend. I really do enjoy the shakes but find it difficult not eating. very hungry.

    How long have you been LT'ing? I still find it hard not eating but I think for me its the habit I can't break -not the hunger. I've been doing it now for 17 days.
