    Ok I'm a newbie - just got my packs from my CDC yesterday. Just tucked into the porridge (of which I have 7 packs!) and was not impressed! Really had to struggle to eat it

    Can you add more water than it says? Whats the best way to make it up?

    Thanks in advance!!

    If you've made it like the instructions on the packet, it's right. It's just gross, lol. Tasted like flour & water to me.

    Can you ask your CDC to swap them for you? If not I'm afraid you'll just have to get them down you. I know how you feel, I got 4 my first week.

    If is the original porridge, try adding a tsp or two of your shake powder...I add vanilla, just gives it a bit of flavour..just an idea :)

    I like the apple & cinnamon and original. I usually put sone sweetener in it and if sometimes use a dash of milk from my allowance. I tend to put more water in it n heat it up a little longer. The first time I made it was lumpy n horrible, it'll taste better once u adopt it I promise! Xx

    I struggle with the porridge a bit, the apple one is VILE. I dont mind the maple pecan as much, but I add a splish of milk and eat it quick before I decide I hate it!

    hiya,

    try making it this way i promise its better.

    i love the porridge i find that if you add 145ml of COLD water to your porridge and 1 sweetner, then mix with a hand whisk (not electric) until all lumps are gone. then put it into microwave for 2 mins to heat it up. tastes 100% better with no lumps.
