    Just had my first shake EVER, vanilla mixed with coffee and it was more than bearable, had tortured myself by reading different threads of everyones opinions on them and was dreading trying it, but it was ok, can't wait to try the others now :)

    Hi Lilypad

    I had Caramel this morning which most people dont like, I added teaspoon of coffee to it and that was really nice also.

    How do you feel today?

    I think most of the flavours on CD are lovely, I think everyone expects them to taste horrible!

    Thanks both for replying, I cut down on carbs and calories for 3 days before starting so, touch wood, I feel ok at the mo. Have looked at the clock and realised I need to get 3 more packs down in the next 7 hours or so so need to crack on, will try caramel next!

    How do you turn the shakes into a mouse?

    :) Hi Lily
    If you think they aren't too bad now you will be fine. I normally love everything I eat no matter what it is. There are very few things I don't like (unfortunately!) but when I had the Thai chilli soup and the Choc shake I really didn't like them. I have had them since and quite enjoyed them, so they do get better.
    Try the Vanilla without the coffee but with lots of ice - it's delicious! Well done by the way for preparing yourself for the diet by cutting out the carbs. I didn't think of that. I'm on day 3 and feel a bit headachey.
    Sorry tubby don't know how to make mousse. I think you just add less water a bit like a paste. I have seen loads of recepes somewhere on here but can't remember where. I think Icemoose did them. The list was quite impressive!

    Of course everyones tastes are different and it is trial and error to find which flavours you can drink. Good luck with your weight loss journey

    Well I've had the caramel, again mixed in some coffee and it was nice and I had a Thai Chilli soup with a ton of tobasco and pepper, and again, quite palatable ;-) But I mixed my soup (and the shakes but they were fine) in my smoothie maker and it was very frothy, not good, so, does anyone have a fail safe method for making lump free froth free soup?

    :) Well, what I do Lily is put the powder in a mug with a bit of cold water. Mix it to a paste and make sure there aren't any lumps left. Then pour boiling water in it bit by bit whilst stirring.
    There may be a few little lumps in but better than great big globules! Yuk!

    best soup

    Best soups come with the following:

    1 saucepan
    1 wooden spoon
    1 soup sachet

    Mix the satchet up in the pan with a little cold tap water to a smooth paste, then add more so it becomes runny, then add hot water stiring continuously. Pop pan on the heat & turn up until its all warm through (your not meant to let it boil as nutrients can be lost).
    This method will deliver you PERFECT lump free soup, I can personally guarantee it :D :D :D, I have soup every day so trust me :cool:

    :D :D :D Have no idea, Dawn!!! They must be really something though if they can be turned into animals!!!! :D :D

    If, however, you would prefer a "mousse" to a mouse, then you need to use Mix-a-Mousse which is an instant gelatine powder available from your CDC.

    Good luck and enjoy your Mouse!!! :D

    P.S: sorry if I sound facetious (sp??) but I couldn't resist the mouse thing!! Believe me, my intentions are honourable!!! :)

    Just tried the crisps...............fantastic. Used the Thai Chiili with a touch of tabasco. I could live on them.

    Gotta say guys, the best method for mixing the soups/sweet drinks is a £5 Tesco value hand held blender.

    Put the foodpack in a mug, fill with boiling water about halfway up - blend - then fill to the top and stir. I have no lumps whatsoever, and no froth.

    :)Yes you can also get a mini battery operated whisk from Ikea for £1. Haven't put batteries in it yet but it will be great to take when I'm out. Hope it works!
