Milk Chocolate Slim Fast Shake Flavor Combinations & Recipes

Slim Fast Shake Recipe Combinations

 

I have been asked by family and friends how I can “stand” having a Slim Fast shake in the morning. I have never seen enjoying a Slim Fast Milk Chocolate shake as suffering. In fact, it’s my favorite time of the day. I’m a huge chocoholic and knowing I can satisfy that craving with a nutritious breakfast makes my mornings a little bit better.  The Milk Chocolate Slim Fast Shake alone, with 8oz of fat free milk, is only 200 calories but packs a punch with 10g protein & 5g of fiber. I have always considered myself a rebel of sorts. When I enjoy a Milk Chocolate  Slim Fast Shake  I don’t just drink it plain. Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely love Milk Chocolate on it’s own. However, I love to kick up my breakfast shake a notch or two. Plus: Drinking the same thing everyday is boring! I’m always adding an additional flavor or two to my Milk Chocolate shakes. With a little creativity, and your pantry you can take a plain Milk Chocolate Slim Fast Shake to the next level without breaking the bank.

Fruits:

  • BananaBananas are one of the best sources of potassium and are great for regulating bowel movements. Potassium helps lower blood pressure & maintain heart function.
  • StrawberriesNot only are strawberries delicious but they are an antioxidant which packs a punch.
  • Raspberries -Raspberries are low in calories but high in fiber & vitamin-c. Like the strawberry, raspberries are also antioxidants.
  • PumpkinI’m not talking about the sweetened canned puree, but you can use that if you don’t mind missing out on some of the health benefits & added sugar.  Pumpkins have more potassium in 1 cup of unsweetened puree than bananas.
  • Cherries – Cherries are high in anti oxidants and contain melatonin.

NUT BUTTERS

  • Hazelnut ButterHazelnuts are high vitamin-e. Vitamin-e is needed for maintaining healthy nails, hair, and skin.
  • Peanut Butter  - Peanut Butter is chocolate’s best known companion. One of Peanut Butter’s benefits is how high in protein it is.
  • Almond ButterAlmond Butter is a popular alternative to Peanut Butter. Almond’s claim to fame is that this little nut contains heart healthy fats.

SPICES:

  • CinnamonCinnamon helps lower blood sugar levels. Cinnamon is also linked to making a mean Mexican hot chocolate.
  •  Pumpkin SpicePumpkin Spice is cinnamon, all-spice, ginger, and nutmeg. It doesn’t specifically have a benefit other than it tastes delicious
  • NutmegNutmeg is a spice that packs quite punch in the health benefit section. Nutmeg has been used to treat depression, aid in joint pain, and used for acne treatment.  You need to use this spice in moderation because high amounts of nutmeg can be fata and if you’re pregnant there are studies linking spices to triggering miscarriages.  I’m not an expert on pregnancies so do your own research.
  • Chili PowderChilis are linked with being an anti inflammatory.
  • Mint LeavesMint has been used in the past as a remedy for digestive issues & stomach pain. Mint is also used to help relieve nausea & headaches. 

 

COFFEE

  • Coffee grounds – Need an extra jump in your morning? Coffee contains caffeine. You can make your Milk Chocolate Slim Fast taste almost like a frozen mocha when you sprinkle in some of your favorite coffee grounds. 1-3 tablespoons should do. If you can’t handle caffeine but love the coffee taste (like yours truly) then substitute with Decaf.

Everything I’ve listed above has some sort of health benefit. I don’t follow the Slim Fast 3-2-1 Plan to the tea, but I use Slim Fast as foundation for my weight loss.  With the flavors above you can make some really interesting shakes. Follow the directions on the back of the Slim Fast can to make a frozen shake. Add your ingredients, blend one more time, and voila! Need some inspiration? Here are some recipes I use with Milk Chocolate Slim Fast Shake:

Desiree’s SlimFast Shake Recipes
Milk Chocolate Shake+ 2tbs Peanut Butter + 1 Banana
Milk Chocolate Shake + 2tbs Hazelnut Butter + 2 Dashes Cinnamon
Milk Chocolate Shake  + 1/2 cup sliced Strawberries + 1 Banana
Milk Chocolate Shake + 3 tablespoons Pumpkin Puree + 2  Dashes Pumpkin Spice
Milk Chocolate Shake + 1 Dash of Chili Powder + 2 tbs Decaf grounds
Milk Chocolate Shake + 1-2 Mint Leaves +1/2 cup sliced strawberries

Please Note: You don’t have to mix two flavors if you don’t want to.  Most mornings I’m satisfied with Milk Chocolate Shake + 2tbs Peanut Butter.

Can Chocolate Royale be used instead of Milk Chocolate?
Chocolate Royale isn’t a personal favorite of mine but I have tried Chocolate Royale with Peanut Butter and Banana. You can tell the difference between Milk Chocolate but it is mighty tasty. Once I get another can of Chocolate Royal I’ll test all of my recipes above to see if they taste just as good as they do in Milk Chocolate.

Don’t hesitate in being creative. Shake up your morning routine with delicious flavor combinations. You might be surprised at what you discover.

  2. Great tips! I use to love Slim Fast Shakes my sisters still lives on Slim Fast products..lol

  3. The only thing that gets me is that it doesn’t sound very filling. Is it?

    • Slim Fast can be made with or without ice. I personally think Slim Fast made with ice is very filling. I add peanut butter because I like the extra protein. I have my breakfast shake around 7 or 8. I usually snack on a piece of cheese & some fruit at 10 and then I eat lunch between 12 and 1.

  4. These sound like some yummy tips! I have always wanted to use these shakes but figured they wouldn’t be enough, maybe now they will be!

  9. I used to do slim fast but I couldn’t stand any of the flavors. The only thing I could stand was the strawberry in the can (the powder strawberry was a different flavor). I know it always had me filled when I had it for breakfast :)

    do you mix everything up in a blender

  12. if you don’t have a blender or don’t have time for blending.. i highly suggest getting what they call a “blender bottle” …. i have at least 3!! it says right on the bottle it can even wisk peanut butter …. its amazing!! you can find them at gnc… target to any other health/fitness store.

  13. I tried this one and it was FABULOUS!!!

    BUTTERFINGER: 8 oz. milk, 1 scoop French Vanilla Slim Fast shake mix, 2 Tbsp. sugar free butterscotch pudding mix, dash almond extract (to taste) 1 Tbsp. reduced-fat peanut butter & 5 ice cubes. Blend well in blender.

    There are literally a 100 ways to reinvent the shake!

    Try sugar free caramel syrup, fat free puddings, different flavors of extracts, different fruits and berries, graham cracker crumbs, frozen juices, pineapple chunks, peaches, etc. And for a hot drink on a cold morning, try adding a Tblsp of Chai mix to the shake and heat it up. Yummy!!!! Just be sure to watch your added calories. :-)

  14. Instead of using regular milk, have u tried it with almond milk?

  15. Yumm these are awesome ideas!! My fave is pumpkin spice latte – IMHO it’s better than Starbucks! You just freeze the milk in cubes (I measured about 10 = 1 cup), throw them in the blender, pour a hot espresso shot on top, the creamy vanilla powder, and about a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice – then blend away. It’s seriously delicious : ) Especially if you get cravings for pumpkin spice lattes/fraps like me – and you can’t get them anywhere until October!

    Do you ever bake with the powder, or the liquid shakes? I am looking for those type of recipes because of the portability with running kids all afternoon. I really don’t like their bars etc since they changed something in them awhile back. Now they all taste gritty and boring. Plus, I’m a breakfast person and cold shakes in the morning do not appeal then. Just curious. Thanks

  17. My go to SF shake is the skim milk, Chocolate Royale powder and frozen strawberries. Very filling. I Erik try a frozen banana with peanut butter tomorrow. Sounds great. Thanks. I prefer a creamier now milk shake like texture. More satisfying. And it takes longer to drink.

    • I am lactose intolerant and use unsweetened almond milk. It is more expensive than dairy milk but also has more protein and half the calories.

  18. Can u heat the cold chocolate shake to make hot chocolate? I used to love the hot chocolate drink but they no longer make it! Thanks x

  19. One scoop of chocolate shake mix + 1/2 cup plain yogurt + 1/4 raspberries = delicious 200 calorie chocolate pudding for breakfast

  20. I tried slim fast before and always ended up quitting by the end of the week because i was so bored with the shakes, im so happy i found this post! milk chocolate, 1 packet of sweet and low and 2 tbs of PB2 is my favorite! it tastes like a reeces cup! I’m drinking the butterfinger one right now someone suggested and its delicious!! It’s actually more filling :-) I did add one packed of sweet and low though.
    Thanks for the ideas!! I think im going to try the chocolate and frozen strawberries for lunch
