I got all of my ingredients shipped to me and thought I’d share some thoughts about my recipe. First of all, here’s the recipe for anyone who is interested: http://www.soylentquest.com/ViewRecipe.aspx?ID=18.
Now, I thought that the amount of chocolate in my recipe might be excessive. However, I’ve found that it’s actually around the right point as far as taste goes. A little less probably wouldn’t hurt, but it’s definitely not unpleasant. The taste is similar to a chocolate shake, but perhaps a tad “powdery”, and not quite as sweet.
Speaking of powder, this recipe has a LOT of it. It probably has just under a Liter of just powder. Luckily it mixed fairly easily in a blender with about 3 glasses of water to create a thick mixture. I have further diluted this upon final consumption, and the consistency is quite appealing. So far I’m feeling quite fulfilled in terms of wanting or needing to eat. I’ll post more details tonight after I’ve finished.
This weekend is going to be weird, I have a couple of functions were I’ll be eating real food, but that’s OK.
