It’s that time of year when we (hopefully!) get some brilliant days of sunshine. Want a fun drink – like a mocktail? In need of a tasty dessert? Or are you looking to add a little something extra to your weight-loss Plan?
Water flavourings can do just the trick!
Firstly, what are The 1:1 Diet water flavourings?
Whilst on Plan, it’s key to drink plenty. Water can sometimes be boring, so for those that like to mix it up a little, The 1:1 Diet water flavourings range can help keep you hydrated.
There’s a variety of flavours to choose from, so something to suit everyone:
Raspberry & Elderflower
Golden Vegetable – if you want something a little more savoury.
All you do is add a teaspoon of the flavour of your choice to a litre of water and voila – a tasty drink. But that’s not all. We’ve got in touch with Consultants to share some of their creations and find out how you can take a simple tub of water flavouring (and maybe a scoop of mix-a-mousse or two) and turn it into something fabulous!
Sweets on a diet? Well look no further. We’ve found a hack using the Raspberry and Elderflower flavour:
1 teaspoon of The 1:1 Diet mix-a-mousse
½ teaspoon of Raspberry and Elderflower water flavouring (dependent on how strong you like the flavour – add more for a more intense flavour)
2-3 drops of rose water
150ml of water
Mix ingredients together with a blender and pour into moulds of your choice. Chill in the fridge until the liquid has set into a jelly-like consistency. Take from the mould and slice into cubes. Enjoy! Thanks to Consultant Alex Murray-Twinn for her Turkish delight picture – it looks great.

We teamed up with a professional mixologist to create some refreshing drink options using The 1:1 Diet Raspberry & Elderflower Water Flavouring - perfect for whether you’re on Plan or not. There’s a Berry Bloomer Mocktail recipes waiting for you to try.
Add 1 teaspoon of your chosen Water Flavouring to 500ml of water, stir until the mix is dissolved, then pour it into your ice lolly mould and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours. Once they have frozen, pop them out of the mould and enjoy!
Ice cream slushie
Ice cream is a bit of a treat, and certainly not something you’d associate with being on a diet. But some crafty Consultants have shown how you can turn The 1:1 Diet Vanilla meal replacement shake into ice cream, with a little help from water flavourings too.
A handful of ice cubes
100ml of water
1 The 1:1 Diet Vanilla shake sachet
¼ teaspoon of Lemon and Lime water flavouring (dependent on how strong you like the flavour – add more for a more intense flavour)
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and blitz together until you have a creamy consistency. Once ready, transfer into a bowl or glass of your choice and enjoy! Thanks to Stacy Gilbert for her scrummy ice cream picture – she’s swapped Lemon and Lime water flavouring for Raspberry and Elderflower – delish!
