    Hi all
    Just wondered how much water you use to make up a pack? -
    I use about 300ml -
    My cdc said I could make it up to a pint but i think it loses the taste?

    I use the 8floz but I add lads of idea and don't drink it straight down. As the ice melts it dilutes (then I can crunch the ice like the anti-social sod I am).

    I have a huge coffee cup and make that up. Sometimes will make a pint glass with lots and lots of ice and a straw!!

    I only do it to 300ml and find that fills me up, I do the same with soups too.

    10 ice cubes and about 1/2 glass of water blended into a macdonalds type thick shake -yum! I drink a glass of water with it, otherwise I wouldn't be getting enough.

    I use 8floz. I am conscious that by not making it up according to insturctions perhaps the nutrition is lost? Though have to say I don't know. But by using less water surely this would cause an imbalance of the nutrients? Obviously either way seems to be working for you all.

    The nutrition can't be lost by adding more water. It's just a far easier way to get more water into our bodies without even thinking about drinking!
