Slim Fast has recalled every single one of its liquid products, including shakes and diet drinks, after finding the products may be contaminated with a bacteria that can cause moderate food poisoning. Unilever, the company that makes Slim Fast, said it has made the move based on quality-control testing that turned up the Bacillus cereus bacteria in some samples. This bacteria can cause nausea and diarrhea, but it is not life-threatening. Unilever officials are urging consumers to discard the liquid products immediately and to call the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund.
I drank a whole lot of protein shakes when I had my weigh-loss surgery . Back in 2003, there were few flavors available -- or maybe because everything was so new to me that I only thought there were a few flavors available. Anyway, to make things more interesting, I got very creative with developing my own recipes for these shakes. And as time went on, more flavors became available and my shakes got more creative (and tastier)!
Here are two of my favorite fruity recipes, Orange Creamsicle and Pina Colada, both of which provide a refreshing break from vanilla and chocolate protein shakes. Gee, who'd ever thought I'd get tired of a chocolate shake?!?!
Orange Creamsicle Protein Shake
1 scoop Syntrax Matrix 5.0 Orange Cream
1-2 c ice cubes
4 oz plain almond milk
4 oz water
2 squirts sugar-free vanilla syrup (I like DaVinci or Torani)
1 TBS orange juice frozen concentrate
Pina Colada Protein Shake
1 scoop Syntrax Nectar Carribe...
