Default Re: What to drink on Good Friday?

So, can we drink something besides water in between meals? Say, chai tea or a hot chocolate or soda? None of those are like food. I see why having a smoothie or protien shake would not be acceptable...

Do you have the source for that?

I remember milk being allowed, or any drink that is not like a meal. Milkshakes would break the fast.

I had green tea this morning. Not sure about the hot chocolate. I think that is acceptable because I remember having it on Ash Wednesday. Hold the whipped cream.

Jeremy's post #12 above from EWTN suggests that ordinary liquids do not break the fast even if drunk between meals.
The Eucharistic fast is not the same as the Lenten fast in every particular.

LOL. And I thought it was before the morning coffee.

Thanks! I thought I'd done something really bad, I was only trying to be friendly. Nevermind

Thanks for your replies everyone, and I hope you all had a blessed Good Friday experience.

I started a thread on this but then saw this one, so I'll ask here:

I know ordinary milk does not count as a snack/collution. What about Smart Balance milk, which has been fortified with vitamins and fish oil? (My lipids were a little high with last year so I have a legitimate medical reason to take the fish oil, but what about those who are blessed not to have such a concern?)

Also, what about iced tea? I have heard some say that only "clear" liquids don't count as part of the collution. That would seem to exclude both tea AND milk which is allowed (I think?)

Just wanted to clear something up from earlier in this thread : I thought fasting is one full meal allowed, and two smaller meals are allowed as long as together they don't add up to one more full meal.
