Hi everyone. I just started my optifast and I was wondering what you guys put in it besides ice. It has a funny taste. I am not a huge fan of crystal light. It is only for one week and it ischocolate. Thanks
Thanks Ginny, I will try the them
When I did it, I put more water than directed on the packet and blended it with ice and a syrup I found at winners/homesense. Peanut butter cup was my absolute favourite! Good luck!
Decaf coffee with almond extract and or coconut extract were my go to for the chocolate shakes. I also added another cup of water. It diluted the chemical sweetener taste.
Peppermint extract! I found it helped my upset stomach.

I am midway through my 3 weeks of opti. I have been sticking with decaf coffee crystals and sometimes I add a ton of ice and less water and it comes out like a Wendy's Frostie with a coffee flavour. So delicious. I found the syrups don't taste very good although I do want to try the Peanut Butter Cup flavour I just haven't been able to find it.
I use the sugar free chocolate Torani syrup to give that mocha taste.
