    Hi I have started on the Cambridge diet today, I have had a porridge sachet this morning, it was lumpy and not nice at all, can anyone tell me how to make it without lumps as I have another 6 sachets to get through.

    thanks

    Hello and welcome :)

    I'm not sure it can be completely lump free as there are actual oats in it. I quite like the lumps - gives me something to chew!

    I guess you could use one of those hand held blender things?

    Merriefach, only problem there is you're meant to consume within 15 minutes. After that the nutrients in the shakes, soups and porridges start to break down.

    Welcome and good luck!! Use a blender or hand blender, should help a bit but as Guru said, it will have the lumps of oats still.

    hi and welcome! i use a hand blender and it really helps. i use just under 200mls of boiling water and blend for about a minute, microwave for a minute then let it rest for a minute then stir. it is quite thick but very creamy! i have one every morning, i love it! x x

    Hi and welcome. There seems to be a million ways to make the porridge :) as we found out the other day on a different thread. So I'll leave you to find out the best way for you.

    Just wanted to say good luck, it's a fab diet. Take one day at a time and you'll be fine xxx
