You are not the only one trying to find the right flavor for your Almased shake.
The beauty of Almased is that it doesn't come in a specific flavor and is as natural as possible. Therefore, you have a wide array of things you can mix and flavor it with.
The typical flavors are cinnamon, vanilla or almond extract, ground flaxseeds and unsweetened cocoa powder. You only need a few drops of the extracts, about 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp of cinnamon or cocoa powder and 2 Tbsp of ground flaxseeds per shake.
I've also tried my Almased shake with some dashes of ground nutmeg or turmeric. Some customers have used about 2 tsp of natural peanut butter (or any other kind of nut butter). For a fruity flavor, Crystal Light Pure and Diet V8 Splash have been used.
For more special Almased shake recipes, I also encourage you to check out the Almased Fasting Figure Plan starting on page 20 (http://www.almased.com/files/cm/Figure%20Plan_Fasting_book%20view.pdf
Don't give up on the taste! Sometimes it takes a few shakes to get used to the more "earthy" flavor of Almased.
If you don't like the texture, I suggest purchasing a BlenderBottle® which will make your shake creamy without the need of an electrical outlet, so you can take it with you to work. You can purchase the BlenderBottle® at supplement stores as well as on our website https://www.almased.com/order-now.aspx
