All I can say is thank god for coffee! The coffee cuts the sweetness BIG time!

Chocolate Opti + Coffee + Crushed Ice = Mocha ice cap

Vanilla Opti + Coffee + Crushed Ice = Vanilla ice cap

Mix Half Chocolate Opti + Half Vanilla Opti = Milk Chocolate Opti

Mixed Opti + Coffee + Crushed Ice = Milk Chocolate Mocha ice cap

*How I make mine, 1 pkg Opti / 1 Tbsp Instant coffee / 10 ice cubes / 300ml cold water. { I don't brew the coffee} and it taste amazing!

*each package of Optifast contains half cup of powder.

*In my morning ice cap I use regular coffee ( Tasters Choice Classic )

*All other ice caps are made with decaf coffee ( Tasters Choice Decaf )

*I add 1 tsp of fibre {powdered no sugar added} to each drink.

*I have also used Caramel extract or Banana extract to my ice caps.

*I started Optifast Aug/21/2017 and 9 days later I am down 12 lbs!

That's awesome!

I am 12 days in, and have had every Opti the same way! I bought only chocolate, and every two days, I brew coffee (some decaf and some regular) and I put it in the fridge.

I make my Opti with one package of the powder, 1 tsp of benefibre (I started adding that in day 4... I recommend everyone do that from the beginning!!!), 250 ml if water and 150 ml of coffee (regular or decaf depending on the time of day!).

They are "perfect" for me that way!!

Cheers to coffee flavoured Opti.

Don't worry about the loss or no loss, kingfisher. Opti is about shrinking your liver, not about weight loss. I lost a few lbs the first few days, then gained 2.5 lbs of it back. I haven't lost them.

I haven't had one thing I'm not "allowed". It is what it is. All good. :)

are you having the broth too? you might be retaining water from the salt. As the above poster stated its about shrinking the liver and not about weight loss. Maybe you dont have a fatty liver i wouldnt worry if you are follow your guidelines your surgeon set out for you and no cheating

I just started Opti yesterday, thanks for the ideas. Did by some Carmel extract but the idea of mixing the two or adding coffee much more appealing to me.ð?¤--
