Wednesday Review

Yesterday upon arriving home from the dentist and running a few errands I found a mysterious box on my doorstep.  Imagine my surprise when I opened it and found 5 bottles of the coveted DaVinici Sugar Free Syrups that I've heard so much about from my favorite forum at I couldn't wait to break one open and try some.  Since it was nearing time for my dinner shake of my liquid diet I figured why not go for my all time favorite drink Kahlua and Cream!

I was not disappointed.    

I used:
4 ice cubes
12 oz. of water

I blended everything on high until it was nice and frothy, which tends to be more filling, which is a great tip when all you get to eat is 3 shakes a day.  Then I sipped, then I licked my fingers, then the spoon I used to scrape the sides of the blender and had my DP not have stopped me I may have even licked the inside of the blender. Let me tell you, I was in heaven.  When I first ordered the flavors from Dr. Greenbaum I had only grabbed a few vanilla because It doesn't tend to be my favorite flavor.  Oy Vey I wish I had gotten more vanilla.  Mixing vanilla with these wonderful syrups really gives me a whole new variety of drinks to choose from.  

One of the most interesting and delightful things I noticed was that I didn't even realize it was sugar free!  I tend to be very sensitive to sugar substitutes.  I can taste the chemical after taste even with something as simple as Splenda, not so with this syrup.  I had no chemical aftertaste.  I actually felt as if I had cheated on my liquid diet. 

I can't wait to try the other flavors and I promise to not just let you know how they go but for the pre-op's dealing with a liquid diet I'll see if I can dig up some friendly recipes to go with them. 

Whether your on a liquid diet, or need a kick for your protein shakes, grab some.  You won't be disappointed.  Your taste buds will thank me.  And when you realize that chugging down the things we need just got a little bit easier, let me know.  I love to see the love spread around!


  1. Hey! so glad you are liking your shakes.

    Just one thing, becareful with the blender after surgery. That frothy foaming shake might make you really sick, since your tummy is sooo tiny afterwards.

    I personally had no problems, but I know a lot of people who did, you can ask around in the main forums and they will tell you :)

    Keep trying new flavors, but wait to order in bulk until after surgery, your taste buds do change afterwards. I have no idea why. They just do >.<

  2. Also, take a read at my new post... I included a word document with 200 protein recipes.

  3. These were free samples to review. I think the whole buying before the surgery has been drilled into me thanks to the forum :) I kinda figured about the blender thing too. I like it nice and frothy because my big ass is still hungry even after I froth it up so much the blender is ready to explode.

    And I am on my way to your page now. Which I was going to do anyway but now I'm going sooner :)

  4. Yum! I would never have thought to get Kahlua. Great review.
