Blend Almased with 10-12 oz of bottled or filtered water and 1-2 tsp of either olive oil, flaxseed oil or walnut oil (you can alternate). Instead of water, you can use unsweetened almond milk, soy milk or skim milk. However, we see best weight loss results when using water. Do not blend Almased with hot liquids, as this may destroy the valuable enzymes in the product.
Almased weight loss shakes are neutral-tasting. You can enjoy them plain, or flavor them to your taste with cinnamon and other spices, instant coffee powder (or use cold coffee instead of water for mixing), a dash of unsweetened cocoa powder or a few drops of your favorite extracts, like vanilla or lemon.
Please note that some of the recipes on our website call for fruit. We recommend to not add fruit to your weight loss shakes during Phase 1.
Starting in Phase 2, if you want to add fruit, please only add it a few times per week, and only add it to your breakfast or lunch shake. The fructose in fruit can slow down your weight loss progress, so for best results, flavor your shake with the ingredients mentioned above.
