Recipe: Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise - So Good!

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Slim Fast. This post is brought to you by SlimFast but all thoughts and content are my own.

I heart Slim Fast, I always have. Slim Fast was my "get back into shape" tool back when my girls were small. I had them each only a little over a year apart, so when it would come time to get back to my pre-baby weight, I would drink Slim Fast. My favorite flavor was always the Mocha, which was so rich and chocolaty. I used to take a cold can ( back in the old days Slim Fast came in cans) and I would drink it at lunch, and it always helped me reach my goal weight. That is why I was excited to receive a sample of the new Slim Fast in French Vanilla and when I saw the recipes for the mocktails and cocktails that I am going to be sharing with you, I realized how much I miss my Slim Fast. 

Just wait till you see these recipes I have to share with you today. There is the Slim Fast Cinful Iced Latte, that only requires three ingredients. Also the Sassy Strawberry Colada and the Tall, Dark and Handsome! These all sound so good, and so incredibly perfect for summer and slimming down without all that suffering. I mean, who wants to suffer and miss out on delicious treats? I sure don't, and that is the main reason why I can't stick to any diet. But this is not a diet at all, just a delicious way to use Slim Fast as a tool to help you lose weight, the right way. These  SlimFast cocktail/mocktail recipes will inspire you to try Slim Fast in a different way you may not have though of before. 

I made the Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise Mocktail.

Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise Mocktail

  • 2 oz SlimFast French Vanilla Shake
  • 1 oz white rum OR 1 oz raspberry rum
  • 1/3 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1-2 pieces of fresh ginger - to taste
  • 1 tsp agave syrup OR 1 tsp honey
  • 1 ice cube; Add more as needed for smooth consistency
  • Additional berries for garnish
Blend all ingredients until smooth and enjoy!

I had my mocktail just an hour ago and it was so good. The strawberries were frozen so it was like a wonderful vanilla and strawberry smoothie. I am totally having this again and I am going to try the other recipes as well, starting with the Cinful Iced Latte, which sounds so amazing. All of the new recipes were created exclusively for SlimFast by DR Mixologist, Darryl Robinson, host of “Drink up” on The Cooking Channel, and feature some of the tastiest and trendiest ingredients of the season. SlimFast shakes are the perfect base for deliciously creamy summer cocktails/mocktails1 and Darryl’s new recipes contain just 130-190 calories per serving.
