    I detest tea and coffee and have never been able to drink hot drinks until I started CD and I have learnt to drink the Golden vegetable drink but ... does anyone know of anything else I can drink as a hot drink. I am finding the hot drink welcome now that it is colder in the evenings. I would really like to find something that tastes nice and isn't tea or coffee.

    Doh! I hadn't thought of making the berry drink up with hot water! :) I shall try that!
    Thanks Sumayyah!
    Don't like the shakes or tetras though - can't drink them at all

    I have a friend that quite happily sips upon hot water (lets it cool down a bit)
    Boring I know, but occasionally I do this to warm up x

    Hi AlexIce, I know you said not tea or coffee but when i first started CD i didn't like either black but i guess you learn to like it or at least i did but what i have found i enjoy the most is white tea, its very mild and is 100% nicer to drink than drinking normal black tea. I use the Clipper brand and its yummy. Also has fat burning properties :D

    I don't think tea will work - I don't find it as repulsive tasting as coffee but white or black - I just don't think I can make myself drink it.

    Ehm i don't know if it exists in england, but over here we got liquorice tea. That is if i translated it correctly.

    I don;t think it tastes like tea, cause it is really sweet and i love that as a hot drink. It also helps if you feel a bit faint.

    Then liquorice tea is THE best combination for you lol, you should spice it up with a little bit of coffee and an olive on a stick :D

    I bought some mint tea yesterday and tried it - couldn't drink it. It would be really nice to have something else to drink which is hot apart from the CD soup as you can only have one a day.
    Today I am going to attempt having the fruit drink hot - I shall tell you what it's like later!

    i hope you like it, would be nice if you found something you like. What i don't get, you're only allowed one soup a day??

    Why?? We are allowed as many soups or shakes as we please on a day.
