We are all looking for a better way to lose weight rather we diet, exercise or use a shake replacement as a snack or meal. I recently was introduced to Shake the Crave and was sent one Chocolate and one Vanilla to try and if you know me and my blog you know I have a hard time with gritty drink mixes and I am hoping this is not like them as I have very easy gag refluxes. Shake the Crave is make with 100% pure ingredients which are Non-fat dry milk from cows raised in harmony with nature, unrefined cane sugar, coconut powder, ground vanilla beans from tropical vanilla plants, ground cocoa beans and electrolytes from natural sea salt. The direction say Add one measuring scoop (scoop included) to 8 fl. oz. of whole, 2%, 1%, or skim milk; almond milk or coconut milk. For best results, blend for 20 seconds on low, then 3 seconds on high, let sit for 60 seconds, blend on low for 5 seconds and then immediately pour in glass; Let sit for 60 seconds so ingredients can re-hydrate and then drink.
My Opinion: The flavor was nice and tasty without the powder residue i have a hard time with as i have a easy gag reflex. It did help curb my appetite so i would not munch so much between meals.
