    I add a pack to 1/2 pint cold water and 4 or 5 ice cubes and whizz it up in a blender for a couple of minutes - almost fills a pint glass and if you drink it through a straw it can last ages :D !!

    Use a blender hun!!!

    A hand mixer is about a fiver, and will do the job perfectly- makes the shakes nice and frothy.

    I alternate between hand mixer and blender, depending on where i am. I got my blender in asda for less than a tenner and it's great. Try whizzing up some ice with your water into a vanilla shake with a little bit of coffee in.... mmmmmmm bliss!!

    Do try them cold Tracie, some of the shakes taste completely different when made cold. I never really liked the choc mint hot, but cold whizzed up with ice into a long drink is so much nicer.

    If you buy one extra pack from your CDC next visit at least if you didn't like it you wouldn't be a meal short, worth a go, especially if this lovely weather continues. :)

    Hi MD thanks,

    I think it's more psycological for me a hot drink lasts longer ie fills you up more where as a cold drink i would have it gone in a second and think i hadn't had anything at all!! if that makes sense :rolleyes:

    Any how i had a vanilla shake half an hour ago (hot lol) with a spoonfull of Mocha Orange Boaters Coffee and it was really nice, it wasn't all that warm here today so having my shakes hot isn't a problem just now, but in the past couple of day's when the weather was warmer i was hankering after a large cold pint of lager :rolleyes::rolleyes: but that was a big no no so a very cold Cambridge shake came second but wasn't sure how to make them up hence this thread then i had no ice, typical!! If it's warm tomorrow i will try a cold fruits of the forrest shake me thinks
    :)

    I'm sure if you close your eyes a cold butterscotch or Toffee & Walnut will taste almost exactly the same as a pint of lager ;) :p

    Ooooh Tracie, the banana packs whizzed up with water and ice are so scrummy! It's my fave meal of the day. :) I tried a Vanilla pack cold, but didn't like it.

    I look forward to my icy banana drink at lunchtime, then a Vanilla muffin mid afternoon....I actually clock watch until it's time to eat them. This diet makes you do crazy things, who would have ever seen themselves getting excited over a bit of soggy 'sponge' type mixture in a ramekin :D

    I got myself a little hand held blender they sell them for £5 in argos at the min apparently :) i use this for my soups.

    For my shakes i take 8 ice cubes and put them in my smoothie maker, then add the water, then the mint choc powder and whizz it up (leaving small lumps of ice) and hey presto a frapaccino! (well thats what i tell myself anyway hehe)

    Hi Tracie

    Just wondered if you've tried mix a mousse? I made one tonight and really enjoyed it - cold with the added bonus of having texture!

    I also freeze my tetras and have as ice cream (ish!).

    They may help keep you going through the nice weather.

    BTW you mentioned boaters orange coffee earlier. I googled it and saw there are lots of lovely sounding flavours - do you know if we are allowed to have them all?

    Hi Yo Yo,

    No i havn't tried mix a mousse yet don't think i would like it but i'll mabye get some next week to try.

    As for the boaters coffee i think we are allowed all the flavours please don't quote me though, i know by reading her posts Ann (westhills on this site) who has lost around 10 stones used to drink it all the time so i might Pm her and ask.

    Yes i have tried tetras frozen and they are great for warm day's :D:D:D
