I made the Fat Stripping Frappa this morning and I had some trouble.
I added everythig in order but the 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup water wasn't enough liquid. My Blendtec kept freezing up so I had to add quite a bit more almond milk to get it to blend, probably close to a cup more? The consistency in the end was nice and it only ended up being maybe a half cup over a qt total.
My Blendtec is brand new, could there be something wrong with it? Or could there be another issue?
I have a vitamix and I couldn't get the frappa to turn out with the measurements in the book. I've changed it up and now have very good, and consistent, results. Into the blender I add enough almond milk and water to reach almost 2 cups (I vary the amount of each liquid depending on how much almond milk I have that day), a couple of grinds of salt, 2 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder (I like mine really chocolatey), 1/2 teaspoon of guar gum (I don't like gluc) and then a scoop of whey protein powder. Blend that all up until it's smooth, and then I add in about 1/3c of either raspberries or strawberries and about 10 ice cubes from my ice maker. I blend that for about a minute, or until the berries and ice are completely crushed and blended.
This is great with a little peppermint extract and coffee added!! Also if you let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours its still great if not better! I fed it to my cousin and she was amazed and said if she could get used to losing weight THM way if this was on the plan!!
The first time I tried this it was a bit of a disaster, my family wanted to go to Sonic for shakes and I needed a THM sub for me. I was new to THM and time pressed. Also, I hadn't read this helpful thread yet!!
I finally got around to trying it again. Using less ice, about 8 cubes, helped with the blending and mixing. I also used a full teaspoon of Truvia this time, and that balances out the chocolate.
But it still tastes watery to me...maybe that's how Frappa's turn out? Or maybe I need to blend more? My ice is separating from the liquid and floating on top as it sits here.

steffanie3: Hmm, I haven't seen it missyhi, I will look a bit though because that sounds great Can you type it in your address bar on your computer? Sometimes when I start typing it will remember titles on sites I have been on and be enough to pull it up.

steffanie3: I think it is called Lily Pie, if you look at them it should say in the corner or search for "weightloss tickers"

Avonlea: I'm a fairly new THM...started only about 3 months ago. I've lost about 13 pounds but lately my body has just quit. I've even gained back a couple pounds. I'm losing inspiration because it seems to have quit working and I can feel myself wanting to cave
