Thank you all for all suggestions! I haven't tried any yet, but I will! Right now, I'm working on the pre-made shakes I have in my fridge.

The brand name/company that makes the powder is NNC and they are located in Gretna, Nebraska. I found this product in the health food section at my grocery store.

The flavor is Vanilla Caramel Swirl. Healthy 100% Whey with Stevia. It's also Gluten free, for those who might be looking for that.

I'm thinking that maybe mixing an apple into it and adding either ice or more water might help and make it taste kinda like a caramel apple. We'll see! lol

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!

So many good suggestions already. One other option -- perhaps decrease the ratio of powder to liquid (e.g., 1/4 scoop for the same amount of water) or increase the ratio of liquid to powder (double it -- through liquids, crushed ice, diet soda if you like them or seltzer). I'll be curious to know what brand you're using, too. Let us know when you find out what works best -- so curious.

Maybe you could add chunks of frozen peaches? Sort of a peach cobbler taste, maybe?
Or maybe adding apple somehow to taste like taffy apple? I am thinking unsweetened applesauce would be diet approved?? Not sure. Applesauce could be frozen before adding.

Tip for freezing fruit:
Take canned fruit, put it in ice cube trays, then freeze it. (This has worked so far with pineapple tidbits and mandarin oranges.) The frozen fruit cubes pop right out of the tray and
then I store them in the freezer in a plastic bag. It makes the fruit in a size that will get pulverized in my Magic Bullet.

I agree with Sunshine, if you use a tbls of instant coffee that would really cut it. Can you share what the powder is as I love caramel and it sounds something up my alley.

Maybe cut it with coffee...

If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence it's probably astro turf.

How about frozen banana or frozen mixed fruit? Maybe some greek yogurt? You could also add it to a vanilla canned shake and count it as two shakes. Sounds good if you like caramel. Good luck.

Hi everybody!

I need a bit of help with some powder I bought. I got it at the store I work. It looked absolutely delicious. It's Vanilla Caramel.

I tried it and it is good, but the caramel flavor is just too much. I need suggestions on how to cut that caramel flavor so I can still use the powder cuz I really hate to waste that much money. Please keep in mind that I'm allergic to chocolate and strawberries. Anything else is pretty much a go. I just don't know what to do to cut that flavor down to make it edible enough to swallow a full serving.

Thanks for your help!
