    Tried to make some choccie porridge with some p/husks and a shake.

    Followed the instructions but ended up with a rather horrible, gluey mess :eek: :confused: . Tried to eat it but gave up.

    Not sure whether to bury it now :D , and is sure wont flush down the loo. !!!

    Cambridge Weight Plan - Step 1
    Hi Deb
    I just posted a response on the other psyllium husk thread about this. Problems could range from water too hot or blender too fast. I've copied my post and here it is ....

    I tried an experiment this morning for Coley and anyone else who had problems with gloopy porrige.

    I made my shake up with just under 400ml of very hot water with NO PH in it. Poured it into a bowl and sprinkled the PH on top then gave it a good brisk stir with a fork.

    At first, it went all lumpy and I though 'sh** - I've ruined my breakfast' but I kept stirring and after about 30 seconds, the lumps began to reduce and the whole thing thickened up. I stirred for about 1 minute then sprinkled some cinnamon on top.
    I left it for another minute whilst I made myself a cup of coffee and it was lovely! Even better than whisking it all together with a blender.

    So I'll be doing it this way myself from now on. :) I suppose we can only discover things if we take a risk and experiment a bit.

    Chelle I generally use 2 tbl spoons but if I were you I'd start off with less and build up to your required tatste, I like a thinner mix and whenever I have tried using more husks I tend to get the "glue" mixture lol I definitely agree with Debbie though they work out much better if you mix the husks into the finished shake in a bowl as when I have blended them I have had to bin the mix (either that or use as wallpaper paste lol)

    I tried mixing the next lot with a choc tetra and some extra cold water, then mixing the husks in a teaspoon at a time.

    Got to 8 tsps and it came out a lovely thick and not gooey consistancy. ! The only thing is now I think my stomach has shrunk and I cant eat it all in one go!! :eek:

    Still got some left now and have been eating on and off throughout the day!! :rolleyes: and its now very think. A bit like a choccie moose!!:D

    I think Debbie is right maybe best to add after the shake/soup has been mixed together first. Seems to work better for me anyway.!
