    Well I feel rather stupid. I've been mixing up my sachets with a fork up till now, which I thought was ok, but I've just tried making it up in the blender. It's a totally different texture, and a lot easier to drink!

    Trouble is, I can't take the blender to work. So I was wondering about these tetra brik things for when I'm not at home. Are they available from day one, or do you have to wait a couple of weeks before eating them (like the bars?). I suppose I should ask my CDC, but it seems unfair to telephone her at 9PM :)

    Hiya, you can have tetras from day one hun!! Some CDCs charge more for them, but if you want to live on them you can!

    And they are incredibly versatile!! You can have them hot, cold straight from the carton, freeze them - they are fab!! :cool:

    I lob a few in the freezer and just leave them. Take them out roughly 45 mins before I want to eat them so they melt into ice cream - they are lush! ;)

    Ah ok...I threw one in the freezer ages ago when I felt the urge for ice cream and only left it in for about an hour and it wasnt quite the fab food I had been hoping for!!

    Will try it your way...thx hun!

    Well that's something to look forward to next week. Are they much more expensive?

    How about these mix-a-mousse things? Are they ok from the beginning? I quite like the idea of eating a pudding rather than a drink.

    I should probably have asked these questions of my CDC on Tuesday, but I was so excited about starting the diet, I didn't think about it!

    Cost depends on the CDC. I charge 10p extra per tetra but others charge more, others charge less.

    Mix-a-mousse generally speaking from week 2 when you are well in ketosis :)

    Can you blend at work at all, if so wilko have a hand blender for £4.99, I have 1 at work and 1 at home!!!!

    That might be worth a go, Choccie tetras are yummy, and you can split it and top up with hot water!

    I tried mix a mousse from week two and trust me its lush, you can make 2 bowls from 1 sachet and the strawberry one was like angel delight mmmmmmmmmm!!!!

    OOhh eee I didnt realise you could turn the tetras into a kind of ice-cream. Going to try that later. :)

    Hope I have more success than making biscuits out of a bar... blimey I smoked the kitchen out!! and it was an utter disaster. Hubby thought the house was on fire!!! :D :D :D . OOPs!!
