    ........ to have milk in my tea? I can't stand it black and I'm freezing all the time so need something warm! My CDC said it wasn't the end of the world, and I only have a drop of skimmed milk in each mug anyway. In some ways I feel like a bit of a cheat, but then I haven't eaten solid food for 5 days so that's gotta count for something!!

    As long as you are going from the advice of your CDC, there shouldn't be too much of a problem. Have you tried adding vanilla shake to it instead?
    How about the cappucino shake too?? This could be your alternative if you like coffee....
    For something hot, I tend to have the Bouillon drink, as I don't really drink tea and coffee.

    Also, how about trying a shake hot?
    I quite like the choc tetra brick halved with hot water - the colour is nasty, but it tastes ok if you want a hot drink!

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Kerry-Ann. Have tried a few of the shakes hot, I like my hot chocolate!!!

    I can't stomach the Chocolate Tetras.. They taste quite alcoholic to me!!! Very odd I know..

    I know that some people add coffee granules to vanilla shakes, but I don't have any vanilla shakes until tomorrow!!

    Thanks for your input :D

    No problem!

    I add coffee to the vanilla as a cold drink, but never as a hot one.

    Good luck for tomorrow!

    Hi Majic

    I have 2 suggestions:

    Each time I make a shake eg choc mint, cappuccino etc I make a coffee and add some of the shake as milk so I have a shake and a coffee. Tastes quite nice.

    The other thing is earl grey tea with the sunshine orange flavouring in it...this is lovely. I can't stand black tea or coffee and don't particularly like earl grey either but this was recommended by my counsellor and is fab!

    That's great to hear Joanne.. Thanks! I think having it has helped me stick to it too, although I do feel a bit like I'm cheating!

    Have you tried Red Bush tea? I cant stand black tea in any form, but I tried that one with a sweetner in, and it was lovely. In fact I now prefer it to the normal stuff!

    Just a thought!
