    Hi everyone,
    Started this morning with a banana shake mix...

    followed the instructions on mixing by adding the powder to the water and used my electric mixer ... but I had a very lumpy breakfast!
    Taste was OK... but any ideas on a smooth shake??

    Also, my CDC said to try warming some of the shakes as they taste yummy... any ideas which ones to try?

    I didn't buy the choc ones or the coffee based ones as I don't like chocolate or coffee...

    Can't wait till my first weigh in...
    I lost about 10 llb last month using a 1000 cal diet but things slowed up so am hoping things get moving nicely now!

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    I got one of the mixers that looks like the magic bullet ( only mines the cheaper version) and I use water from the fridge, it makes a gorgeous frothy shake.

    Like you I`m not keen on chocolate but the choc mint or chocolate made in to a mousse with the mix a mousse powder is delicious.

    I use a blender and whizz for 15 secs.
    So far I've tried choc mint (yummy) and vanilla (tastes like melted white chocolate - sublime) hot. It seems to go creamier anbd smoother when it's hot.

    I mix mine in my liquidiser if cold. Hot I make up with a little cold water into a paste then add hopt water and blitz with a hand blender. Ice cubes crushed in a food processor/coffee grinder, add shake and a tiny amount of water to mix and you have a bowl of ice cream!

    Well I just had the butterscotch one, I warmed it up... it did taste a bit chemically and smelt horrible... but was pallatable...
    And no lumps!
    I think i will treat myself to a hand blender as the mixer doesn't really get the lumps out..

    How long is it before I can go onto the mousse mixes etc... is it 2 weeks? And is this just an additive that makes the normal shakes go stiff and mousse like?
