    OK Nicola. This is how you do it.

    Use 300ml of HOT water (not boiling) and blend in whatever flavour shake you want to use with a blender in the usual way (Toffee & Walnut, Vanilla and chocolate all work well)

    Pour the hot shake into a bowl.

    Add 2 heaped dessertpoons of PH on top of the liquid and using either a fork or a balloon whisk, stir briskly.

    At first it will seem lumpy but keep at it and it becomes smooth.

    Leave it for about a minute to settle. I like to add a little cinnamon powder to mine for extra flavour. Then eat and enjoy! :)

    NOTE:
    We call it 'porrige' but the consistancy will be more like thick semolina. Just so you know you've got it right.

    Hi Nicola, I usually mix the husk with my shake powder, pour the water into the blender and put my mixture in on top of it, then whizz for a few seconds....dont do it for too long though otherwise you just get 'gloop'

    Maybe try doing half a pack til you get the consistency right?

    What flavour shake did you use?

    I suppose it could well be an acquired taste (it's not exactly Quaker oats) but I like it - I know some people just can't get thier heads around the consistancy.

    I've just had my second shake of the day with 2tsp of PH in it ... I don't think I could drink it without now! :)

    What was it you didn't actually like? The taste itself or the consistancy? I can't actually taste the husks themselves when they're mixed in with a pack - just the flavour of the shake / soup. Maybe you have mega-sesntive taste buds!

    If it's not for you, there are PH capsules available from Holland and Barrett.
