Slim-Fast Strawberries ’N’ Cream Shake

This is the latest product that i received courtesy of the Influenster vox box program. The directions said that I needed to mix the shake with other ingrediants in order to make it taste better. I can honestly say, I was not too thrilled that these ingrediants were not included because I am a poor college student who doesn’t have money to go out and buy a whole lot of ingredients to use just once. I did go out and get them though, much to my dismay.  

The shake itself said that it is not recommended to drink it on its own and needs to be mixed with something.  Since I didn’t want to spend money on rum, I made the Sassy Strawberry Colada Mocktail.  This calls for the shake to be blended with fresh pineapple, whole strawberries, coconut extract, and ice cubes.  I did not put in a whole lot of coconut since I am not a fan of the taste.  When it was all blended, I served some just to me and my boyfriend, I didn’t want to throw a whole party just to try this shake haha. Overall, the drink was a little bland for our liking, maybe if we had put in the coconut it would have tasted better but, again, no likey coconut.  I am really not a huge fruit drink fan either so that also played a role in me not really enjoying the drink.  I wish I would have gotten the cappucino delight or chocolate flavor, I definitely would have enjoyed those a lot more.

Overall, the drink was just meh.  Nothing too special. Given, it is a drink to help you lose weight and control appetite. I did not try enough of it to see if it actually did control appetite and obviously I couldn’t test whether it helped me lose weight since I only had one. 

Overall, if you like fruity drinks, go for this one. It’s healthy and very fruity.  It also comes with a variety of recipes to mix with the shake, since it is not recommended to drink the shake alone. It personally wasn’t my favorite, but that’s just because I don’t like fruity flavors. You should definitely try it!
