I don't like sweets - help!

I have never been one for sweets, so is there a way to make the shakes a little "saltier"? I have pondered using the broth, or carrot juice with a splish of liquid aminos, but I don't want to make something disgusting and put myself off the powder completely.
I am drinking about 4 cups of vegetable broth a day, because I crave the salty warmth. It's very comforting for me.
Yesterday was my first day on it and I did super until I had to make supper for the rest of my family. I was very bad and had a little bit of what they ate. I lost a pound anyway, so it motivated me to do better today. If I can lose a pound after cheating, what will happen if I behave? :-)
I currently use Silk coconut milk (original flavor), vanilla or almond extract, always cinnamon, and have tried pure cocoa powder.
I would really like some more options for mixing the powder. The way I've been mixing is isn't awful, it just isn't something I enjoy. I suppose I could better endure it if I used vanilla or chocolate almond/coconut milk and did the first phase for five days instead of three (to compensate). Even though I don't like sweets, the vanilla coconut milk is quite tasty.
I appreciate any ideas. I am open to most anything, as I like seaweeds, all vegetables, etc.
Also, is Miso soup acceptable? I don't hate the vegetable broth, but I ADORE miso soup (miso paste, dashi, wakame seaweed, sometimes ginger). Miso is made from fermented soy beans, so I wonder if it's a possibility.
