Atkins Shake Alternative??

As just wondering if anyone knows of an alternative to buying the Atkins shakes??

I think £12 is ridiculous for 10 servings tbh!!

I have a massive tub of vanilla protein shake and was wondering if I could substitute with this??

It needs to taste nice too!

Just getting a bit fed up of cooking every morning.....

I am however making a Salmon and Dill crust less quiche today which will do for some brekkies :0) x

I have holland and barratt whey protein cookies and cream protein powder. It is absolutely DELISH with water, and also with milk. Tastes like an oreo milkshake! :)

I also have the vanilla, but i dont really like it. Tastes a bit odd.

Does this fit in with Atkins? How many carbs etc per serving?

This is the one I currently have, looks good to me as only 2.2 carbs per serving....

Any feedback?? And would this be ok?

Ah ha, that looks good...how do you establish if it has soya or not? Mine hasn't got soya written on It at all!

Bit dubious with the cookies n cream flavour, is it sickly?

Noticed your carbs are based on a 23g scoop to, where mine is a 30g x

Also does it have much of an impact on weight loss do you think?

I'm thinking of potentially having it for Breakfast and Lunch?

Sorry - have to put my two pennys worth in - shakes do nothing for me as usually hungry again an hour or so later. Just a waste of opportunity to eat real yummy food;). About the only place i can see useful is stuck on airplane (airports and planes are the most atkins unfriendly places in the world in my view:eek: !)

The cookies and cream shake I think is delicious. Feels really thick with the water. I dont think its sickly, but then, it depends if you really like sweet stuff or not. And its 100% whey - it would say on the ingredients if it had soya in it.

And I always feel really stuffed after a shake. Sometimes find it hard to force myself into having lunch if I've had a shake for breakfast.

Ah cool, mine doesn't say Soya anywhere on the ingredient list so I think I'll be ok....

Got loads left from my gym, so will get through that then look into the H&B one!!

And I agree with feeling full rather than hungry due to it being protein based rather than the ***** that's in Slim fast, Exante etc which is mainly carbs hence the hunger pangs shortly after as it's very quickly used up!

I get the Atkins shakes (vanilla powder and caffe latte) via Amazon ... I have a repeat order so I save money that way and can cancel at any time ... I think it saves about £1 something per tin that way ... I must try Claire's cookies and cream as it would be a cheaper option if I liked it... I bought a tin of something from H&B and it wasn't pleasant at all! I think it needed to be mixed with milk...

I love the Atkins flavours - I think I could live off them but would probably end up having far too many! Lol
