Hey all

Ive just noticed that someone said you can heat the chocolate shake up and take it as a Hot Chocolate drink ? Is this true ? My Pharmacist told me thats a no-no as it alters the nutrients etc..

Now Im confused.. seeing as I have no soups ( he forgot to give me these and gave me shakes instead ) Id like to try the Hot Chocolate option if I can just as a little change.

Anyone know the right answer ?

Thank you =)

loads of people have their chocolate hot so i can't imagine it effects your weight loss because of the nutrients. alot also have vanilla hot with a spoonful of coffee in xx

I'm sipping my lovely hot choc as I type!
Make it up with a couple of sweeteners and use a hand (stick) blender to make it rich and creamy. Mmmm...
Thanks Vickie :)

I'll try it tonight . Im liking the shakes, well vanilla and choc.. strawberry I wanted to pull my tongue out it was awful lol.. but if I can trick myself into thinking Im having proper Hot Chocolate then would be great! lol

you can also make peppermint tea, allow it to cool, and then mix it with your choc shake, choc mint shake!

some mix half a vanilla shake with half a choc shake as well.

there are all different varients you can have of the shakes and they are all fine xx

I tried to use hot water with the chocolate shake - yeuck. But I later tried to make it up with cold water and then heat in microwave - this is lovely. Think I've got it down to an art now - I had a few where it was just too hot.
I've tried the vanilla with the coffee as well - can't ever make up my mind if I like it or not - then I try it again - I'm not a huge fan of the vanilla anyway, have 1 for lunch every day, as I think I'd crack up with all chocolate!
I did try the mint choc - I think it's great - I mix it first with a little cold water and then add the tea afterwards - again trial and error, found mixing the powder straight into tea didn't taste too good - for me!!

I use peppermint essence to make my choc mint, it hasn't thrown me out of ketosis and it is much simpler to make, you only need a few drops and it is really cheap

The chocolate is really nice warm - only thing My pharmacist said was that the lipotrim shaker shouldn't be used with hot liquids , but it's much nicer with a blender mmmm :D

i make a mocha with the chocolate: in a big latte mug make half a cup of black coffee (i have 2 sweeteners in mine), make up the shake with 200-250ml cold water as usual then pour the shake into the mug with the coffee = tada! lovely mocha :D
or with vanilla shake for a regular latte :) lovely first thing in the morning

Top tips debbie (I said TIPS ;) ) - will be on the look for some peppermint essence tonight.... choc mint is possibly one of my most favourite flavours ever.. :) Could never be arsed with the whole mint tea thang (takes to long to knock together)

I think you're allowed at least one of your shakes hot every day. I make mine with a bit of cold water first then add boiled so as not to over-cook it. You MUST finish it within 15 mins though or the nutrients will be gine (at least that's what I heard).
