If you’re new to my blog – I’m an influenster. (That means I get sent products to try for FREE – and review them for you. “This post was created in connection with my appointment as a SlimFast Ambassador.”) I love being able to get products or voxboxes to try out and let you know what I think of things. Recently I was asked to participate in Slim-Fast’s Sexy Summer program and try out one of their shakes. I’d love to try something like this and let you know what I think so I signed up right away! I’ve never tried anything from Slim-Fast so had no idea what it would be like. Here are a couple stats for you.
- 180 calories
- 10g protein & 5g fiber
- Up to 4 hours of hunger control
Thoughts – Taste – I’d give this a 3 out of 5. It has a slight “protein” taste for anyone that has tried protein drinks or bars you know exactly what I’m talking about. But its surprisingly good and the strawberry flavor is nice and light. It has a milky consistency and no chalky flavor. I think the “protein” flavor might be covered up in the chocolate flavors but I’m not sure since this is the only bottle I got to test out. *Influenster included 8 drink recipes with it (4 mocktails and 4 cocktails) but I drank it plain since I wanted to give you my honest impressions and I wasn’t sure about mixing alcohol with something milky. (I get thoughts of those horrid shots where the milk curdles!) Now that I’ve drank my bottle, I think blending it with some fresh or frozen fruit would be delicious! I’m still not sure if I’d want to mix this with alcohol but maybe… I drank this after work when I’m semi-hungry to see if it’d kill off the hunger. It actually has, I can see how this would be a nice snack to help keep you full during the day. Overall I think I might try this out – but want to try out the other flavors first. I think if I had to drink this strawberry flavor all the time I’d get tired of it really fast. If you are interested a 4-pack of this product costs $ 4.98 and a 8-pack is $9.98 at Walmart.com
