For those who have already started the diet and are a few weeks or months into it, the same kind of shakes could become boring. However, here are some ideas to make your shakes more interesting and tastier. You can add different kinds of sugar free syrups to your shakes. They will enhance the flavor of the shakes without increasing the calories. Some of the syrups you can use are the hazelnut syrup, which can be added to the banana flavored shakes. Also try different nutty flavors for the chocolate flavored shakes. You can also use a blender and ice cubes instead of the plastic shaker to make the shake appear more frothy and thick, which also tends to make it tastier.
