I was never a shake person. However, I am now a big time user.
I love lattes and use the chocolate and vanilla for my milk. But my biggest discovery is to use the vanilla as my liquid in my baking. The only recipe I didn't like was the biscuits...they just shouldn't be sweet. But my muffins, pancakes and waffles, OH MY! The great thing is if you don't add vanilla, you keep 1 carb out and if you don't use splenda you can keep 48 carbs out for every cup. I finally got splenda to tell me the carb count for the regular splenda packets...it is 48 carbs per cup.
I bake with my carbquik and Atkins and save so many carbs and love it...I do add the extra baking powder and everything is light and fluffy...it is worth the 1 carb for that teaspoon. Try it, you will love the Atkins with the carbquik.
This review is specific to Advantage Ready-to-Drink Shakes, French Vanilla Shake, 11 oz
I can't tell you how often these delicious shakes have stopped me from falling off my low carb diet. The vanilla shake tastes a lot like condensed milk in a can and can be used as a milk/cream substitute on low carb cereals, in coffee or in recipes.
Love these shakes...especially the Cafe Caramel Latte and Chocolate Royale. I'm a serious chocoholic..so I was surprised that my absolute favorite of all the flavors turned out to be the Strawberry Supreme...YUM! Filling shakes that taste great!
Strawberry, dark chocolate, and french vanilla are all incredible. Filling and thick with a nice, real flavor. The coffee varieties have a bit of a weird taste, I'd prefer to make my own mocha with real coffee and the chocolate shake dumped in (I have done this, too. It is great.)
The extra fat in these shakes versus standard "protein" smoothies, shakes, and powders makes them so much thicker and tastier. I love the consistency.
If atkins sold protein powder I'd buy it to make larger quantities. They're on the low end for protein count anyway.
Definitely try pouring them in the blender with some ice and xanthan gum, any other mix-ins for a summer shake. They froth up nicely.
