Weight Watchers Milk Shake (Flex or Core)

"This is from a very old Weight Watchers pamphlet for Week One of the diet. I love this milk shake. It's surprisingly thick and tasty."

    I didn't have any instant coffee so I omitted the sweetner and vanilla and used about 2 Tbs (can adjust to your own taste) of sugar-free, fat-free white chocolate instant pudding. It was nice and thick like a milkshake and had good flavor. I don't like the aftertaste that artificial sweetners have so I usually avoid them, but this was so slight I could hardly taste it. And the best part, it stays thick and creamy.

    This is great ice cold for a low calorie shake. But it is not as thick as a milk shake. Added a frozen banana will thicken it more. I did use 5 ice cubes and vanilla extract.

    If you are expecting a McDonald's milkshake or Arby's- it is not going to happen. But, if you are on WW Core or Flex this will be a surprisingly wonderful treat. It is thinner then a regular milkshake, but still has a great ice cream taste. I added a little more ice and some sugar-free pudding to thicken it up. Then I topped it with lf whipped topping. I will so be making this again!

    Sorry we weren't very impressed with this. It just came out like flavored milk, not even close to the consistency of a shake, so I added a cup of frozen strawberries and that helped the thickness alot and ended up tasting like a strawberry shake. I gave it 3 stars because it was good with the strawberries, but as written it would probably just be 1 star.

    No, it isn't a Dairy Queen shake but for a dieter, it is heaven. I dressed it up by using 1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half to 1/2 cup skim milk, vanilla extract, 2 pkgs of Splenda, instant coffee and a shot of recipe #204135 for a wonderful afternoon pick-me-up. Thanks for sharing your recipe! It will get lots of use at my house.

    I just made this for my son and I. Instead of using vanilla or coffee, I used cocoa powder, and I also used a couple extra ice cubes. We both really liked it. My son, who is 4, said "It's weird, but I like weird" :) It wasn't really like a milk shake but still really good. I'll definitely make this again! <br/>Thanks for posting!
