    It's a herb root, like licorice
    I have licorice tea, and have lost as normal

    "they" have only said fruit teas are out?

    I think "they" err on the side of caution - they don't want us adding maple syrup or whatever! but in moderation I think most normal household herbs and spices are probably fine - if it keeps us on plan it's got to be better than us lapsing I guess.:D
    I don't know what I'll add to my vanilla, but it'll have to be something to take the smell away as I can't stand vanilla!

    I put a tsp of coffee & a couple of sweeteners in my vanilla shake this morning & it was lovely! I could almost imagine I was having something naughty!
    Just steeling myself to down a thai chicken soup - I have gone right off all the soups at the mo. Dont think I will be ordering any of them next time.

    OK here are a couple of new shake ideas that I've been experimenting with this week, and a reminder of the old fave. :)

    Banana or vanilla with a sprinkle of nutmeg.

    Chocolate, strawberry or vanilla with a sprinkle of mixed spice.

    Strawberry or chocolate made up with water & some crushed ice, then a couple of shredded mint leaves* on top.

    Mixing - strawberry & vanilla go OK together, and chocolate goes with all the others.

    Cocoa powder - small sprinkle on any of them.


    *I now have a "mint tower" on my patio. :eek: I bought a teracotta strawberry planter - you know like a vase but with some holes on the sides? I have peppermint and spearmint in the top of it and applemint, pineapplemint and chocolate mint (honest! :D) poking out of the holes. The mint plants were about £1.50 each from my local garden centre.
