my choc shake

up to sixteen ice cubes and I blend them so they are really like soft snow!!!

Tip in sachet and about 300-400ml very cold water

Blitz in the blender...


All I add really is ice cubes and nothing else, but it is yummy!!

I add tablet sweetner! (sweetex no calorie sweetner) couldnt drink them without sweetner lol x
I can only manage the soup if I use 450 - 500 mls of water and have it really hot .. and blend it so no lumps .. heard some people use chilli powder or pepper , although you are not meant to ...
I like my shakes as they are .. choc has to have 325 mls of very cold water and strawberry has to have 350 ml of water .. i dont like them blended with ice , or warm or with peppermint tea .. tryed it all ... its all down to trying it in different ways and finding what you like.
I am just having 3 chocolate shakes a day at the moment !!!

You can make crisps with the soup (but make sure you drink extra water to compensate!!!)

Put paprika/black pepper/chilli powder into soup mix and add little water and mix into thickish paste (rough consistency of thick custard). Spread small thin amounts onto baking paper and microwave for about a min, peel off and put in bowl/plate etc. It actually makes a biggish portion of "crisps" and tastes really nice but don't forget extra water to drink.

I make chicken soup with less water (use sparkling as it disolves the powder better). Glue consistency and drop mixture onto a plate microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes (keep testing it). It comes out like naan bread.

Mix the chocolate with sparkling water to make the mousse much better.

I just add a little extra water to the shakes to make them a bit 'thinner', as I find they can be really thick and sickly at times, tried the chocolate mousse once and was nearly sick!


5 stone to go!
what i do is, 7 ice cubes , 250mls water tablet sweetner and shake, put in a blender for 2 mins. perrrfect. cant have them any other way must be cold.x
