A couple of things I do with vanilla shakes:.
1) Pre-mix in shaker cup with water. Put about 1 cup ice in blender, add 1 tbsp. instant coffee crystals then add vanilla shake. Tastes like a Frappucino...!.
2) Pre-mix in shaker cup with water. Put about 1 cup ice in blender, add 1 tsp. SF/FF pudding mix ( I like butterscotch, cheesecake, lemon). Tastes like a cake batter shake..!.
Pre-mixing the shake before you blend it makes it creamier...took me 2 months before I found that out! Good Luck!~..
I add a little Davinci sugar free raspberry syrup..........yum!..
I put in a few drops of Penzey's double-strength vanilla extract and a shake of cinnamon..
Sometimes I mix it with my coffee. That's okay...
I love the vanilla shake with four drops of NY Cheesecake Capella drops. And I always make my shakes in the blender...
The vanilla is my favorite also because you can change the taste so easily. One of my favorites is Lemon Dream. I make the shake ahead of time (usually 2 hrs-it's nice & creamy), then throw it in the blender w/ a 1/2 t. crystal lite lemonade and a pkg. of nutrasweet & 1 cup crushed ice. Let it whip up and WOW...you have this huge cup of heaven.
Just use your imagination & experiment with different lo-cal drink mixes and syrups. Hope this helps!..
I add mine to diet Orange pop or diet Coke - you have to be careful when you mix it, because it tends to "explode"...
Thanks for all of the great ideas - I will definately try some of them next time I get out to the store...
I mix mine with lots of ice, vanilla, carmel and hazelnut de vince syrupsjust a little of each and throw in some flax seed. Yummy..
My favorite is to use really cold water add the shake mix and 4 drops of the Capella cinnamon danish swirl drops and then blending it in the magic bullet. It's yummy!..
