And, while frozen fruits and ice are a good way to thicken a shake…the REAL secret ingredient: xantham gum.

Try for 1/8th to 1/4 teaspoon for a 16-24 oz shake.

I think I’ve heard this before. I wanna give it a try.

Where would I go to buy xantham gum?[/quote]

Whole Foods should have it right next to the flax meal and different types of flour. There is a Bob’s (?) brand. I think that is the brand, anyway.

Or any grocery story, I believe.

Know what works just as well if you cannot find xantham gum?

Pureed (canned) pumpkin. About half a can works fine. Very thick shakes.
