    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla is my personal favorite shake mix. Having tried their French Vanilla shake in the past and because of my love for French Vanilla flavor I purchased the Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla. i got this product for home, and kept the shake bottles to grab on the go. I feel these Slim Fast Powder Shake Mixes are a good way to include some healthy nutrition in your diet without a lot of efforts. I have mixed this with water, fat free milk and have even used in regular smoothies along with fruits to get some vanilla flavor into it. Though, I have never had it as a meal replacement, I feel it is filling enough if taken as a meal itself. The best part about these mixes is one can increase or decrease the amount as per their need and taste. It is a perfect way to start your day when you have no time to make the breakfast or can be taken as a quick in between snack to keep yourself away from any junk food.

    Yummy Vanilla Option

    By 

    from Hartford, CT

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    I usually drink the premixed Slim Fast shakes every morning for breakfast but once in a while I like to mix my own, especially when I have a bit more time.

    The French Vanilla powder mix is very easy to use - you just measure it out, add it to your blender along with milk or water (I usually use the coconut milk from the refrigerator case for extra creaminess) and ice and away you go.

    The powder definitely has a different taste and texture than the premixed shakes. The shakes from the powder don't seem as thick and creamy feeling but they taste very good. They seem to have less of a chemical aftertaste that I notice quite often with the premixed shakes.

    The vanilla flavor also makes for a great base to add extras in, like frozen fruit, a banana, a tablespoon of peanut butter, etc. since you already have the blender out anyway to mix it.

    I definitely do not recommend just trying to mix this in a cup without a blender. It does not mix well and you end up with clumps of dry powder around the edges of the cup or floating in the middle. It's worth the extra five minutes to get the blender out and blend it. It tastes infinitely better.

    First Choice

    By

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix in French Vanilla is my first choice in diet drink powder. This Slim Fast product has a great, creamy, rich vanilla taste. I often think vanilla drinks are basically milk tasting, this however really lets the vanilla shine through. At 110 calories per serving, this is a great way to start your day, I prefer mine blended with fast free milk and ice, adding an almost milk shake texture to the drink. However, it is not just for drinks alone, I use this for a nutrient boost to my smoothies, over 20 vitamins and minerals, including 50% of your daily calcium. I add a scoop, mix in some fresh fruits, strawberries, blueberries, a dash of milk and ice, a great smoothie! This is a snack I feel good giving the entire family, as part of a healthy diet plan for all of our needs. The per serving cost is the lowest on the can form of Slim Fast, and it is very easy to use, it mixes completely either by hand or in a blender, depending on your personal preference.

    Yummy and I lose weight drinking it!

    By 

    from Davis, CA

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    Also known as the 3-2-1 diet, the Slim-Fast diet is easy to follow. I typically drink the chocolate version when dieting, but thought I'd try the vanilla this time around. I was not disappointed. It is as yummy as the chocolate. The best part is that I lost quite a bit this time. During my 12 day (they suggest 14 days) diet, I lost 8 pounds!

    If following the diet correctly, the dieter eats three 100 calorie snacks, two Slim Fast meal replacements, and one 500 calorie meal. I was very careful to stay within these limits most of the time. I chose to eat fruit most of the time for my snacks--watermelon is in season. I had the shakes for lunch and dinner most of the time. This helped me lose the most weight because usually I'd have my most high calorie meal at night.

    Sure, I was hungry during the diet, but it was only 12 days. So, it wasn't difficult to stay on the diet.

    Tip: Whip the non-fat milk and once you've mixed the powder into it thoroughly, add a lot of ice to it. Drink it slowly so it lasts. You'll be a much happier dieter.

    Very versatile product!

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    I seriously am addicted to this stuff. I was looking for a powder to use as part of my post-baby weight loss plan. I'd used Slim-Fast products in the past with great success, so when I saw this powder I knew I had to try it out. First off, the flavor is pretty darn good. It's a little on the fake-vanilla-tasting side of things, but not too awful bad. It's a lot like french vanilla pudding flavor.

    I've used the Slim-Fast poweder as directed to make meal replacement shakes, like the ones you get out of the can. I really like this better than the cans though, because you can tailor it to your tastes. It's easy to add it to a blender with some greek yogurt and milk and some ice to make a smoothie. I've also tried adding frozen and fresh berries to it, as well as a little peanut butter (for more protein) and banana chunks. The very best preparation I've found so far for the Slim-Fast vanilla shake powder is to use some Greek Yogurt, Ice cubes, and some cold coffee in a blender - lower fat frappes! And cheaper than the coffee shop ;)

    Tastes good, filling for a while

    By 

    from Brewster, NY

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    This shake serves a valuable purpose. For breakfast when I am in a hurry and not particularly hungry, I make this shake with skim milk. Sometimes French Vanilla, sometimes Chocolate Royale (my preference is the chocolate royale). Flavor is good, not at all chemically. It fills me up for little in the way of calories and I am on my way. It will not hold me till lunch, however, I need a piece of fruit mid-morning to hold me the full 4 hours till lunch.
    This also serves as a perfect afternoon snack for when you have that low blood sugar feeling and want to take a nap phase - for me around 3pm, this is just the thing to keep me going and not be starving, ready to east anything, when I get to dinner. I know it is sold as a "meal replacement" - I think that is stretching it a bit. If this is all I wanted for a meal, I would not need diet items! I have a bigger appetite than this! I do not think I am alone in feeling this way. Appreciate this for what it is not what it is advertised to be.

    Great in smoothies

    By

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    First of all, I do not use this as a dieting food. I am not trying to lose weight so I cannot review it based on that. But I do drink this at least 4 times a week as an additive to my morning or snack smoothies. I love smoothies, but I like to make them a bit more filling so I throw in a scoop of this vanilla slim fast. It gives the smoothie (usually bananas, berries, and milk) an added sweetness and a hint of yummy vanilla flavor. When I add this I feel fuller longer and I feel like I am getting a more balanced breakfast because of all the added nutrients it contains. The vanilla is by far my favorite and now the only flavor that I will purchase. Some of the other flavors have a chalky taste that this does not have. This is also good just put in milk as the instructions indicate, but I prefer it in a smoothie. The powder is a bit expensive, but a can lasts me quite awhile and I think it is worth the cost.

    Taste Good and Curbs my Hunger

    By 

    from Wrightstown NJ

    Comments about Slim-Fast Slim Fast Powder Shake Mix - French Vanilla:

    Slimfast French Vanilla shake mix is a great aid in staying on a diet. it does not taste like diet food and provides plenty of nutrients in each serving without a lot of junky additives. I add the mix to skim milk and shake. It mixes well although sometimes you may get little chunks of powder so mix it really well. I have also mixed it up in a blender and it comes out really frothy and delicious. It is like drinking a milkshake without all the fat and calories you would get in a milkshake. I generally have one of these for lunch and it really does curb my appetite until dinner, if I get hungry in between , I just have a small healthy snack. You can have two of these a day with a healthy dinner on the diet and if you stick to the plan , you will lose weight. They are not made to be had along with three regular meals. I like the taste and the consistency is very nice. This flavor is very good although you can choose from other flavors as well. Recommended.
