    Morning all!!

    Just starting my first day on Diet Chef and think the granola's disgusting!! I've got a really sweet tooth and my idea of a good brekkie cereal is Frosties, is there any way to make this taste nicer?

    Thanks!! x

    Add some fruit to it :) A small banana perhaps as they are sweet.

    I've found that over time my sweet tooth has readjusted so that things like the granola taste sweet and Frosties, which used to be my main cereal, now taste yuck - I forced myself to switch to sugar free muesli about two years ago and thought it was awful and is way worse than the granola but stuck with it. It works for cakes too, which I now find really sickly. Unfortunately, chocolate and sweets still taste as good as ever though.

    Will be interested to see whether you find in a month or so it has the same effect :)

    I have berries on my granola - blue or rasp usually, but I have it with muller light vanilla or banana & custard yoghurt (half pot) and I think it's gorgeous!
