I was given the opportunity to join in on the Slimfast voxbox by Influenster.  Now I normally don't believe in replacing an actual meal with a shake and a bar or snack, I think if you can have a complete meal you should, however, if you really don't have time and need something to fill your tummy the slimfast shake would help.  Having something is better than nothing!

My mom use to drink Slimfast shakes years ago and I had her take a sip of the one I was given (Strawberries & Cream Shake) she said it taste the same as before and she liked it.  I have to say that you can certainly taste the strawberry and creme but it has a soy milk type flavor to it (not a bad thing).  I completely forgot about the mocktail idea influenster had given us for the shakes and just ended up drinking it on it's own.  Good thing it taste perfectly fine on its own but I can only imagine how great it would have tasted with the mocktail recipes they gave us.  If you want to see some of the ideas just go to this link for the cocktail recipes.


 Sadly, as you can see in the photo above my cup arrived broken! I was so sad!  Good thing it was plastic and not glass though =).

Pros:
  • Taste good (just like the name of the flavor given)
  • Great for a quick pick me up for on the go days
  • Very affordable!
  • 7 different flavors
  • Contains a lot of vitamins and minerals
Cons:
  • The drink alone did not seem filling (good to have a bar or some fruit to go with it)
  • a little sweet

Thoughts?:
  I think it's a great product to add to a meal or snack instead of replacing one.  They are delicious and affordable.  I wouldn't mind grabbing one and drinking it at school instead of going to the vending machine and buying a bag of chips.  My mom also liked it so I think we are going to give the other flavors a try!  Hopefully this time I'll remember to try the mocktail cocktails!
