I have been buying the large tins of powder and mixing up a batch of 6 shakes in a covered pitcher. Then all I have to do is shake and pour. Much easier than mixing each one separately, and much cheaper than buying ready made cans. Better for the environment too. Plus this way I can use Lactaid milk so my tummy doesn't get upset.

It's just 6 cups of milk and 1 1/2 cups of the powder. I use a hand blender to mix it all together because the powder is hard to incorporate at the best of times.

Before pouring out a serving, give the contents of the pitcher a good shaking or a stirring because the powder tends to settle on the bottom.

To make my version of the shake, simply measure out 1 cup of the slim fast, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of extra milk. In a blender add ice and chop. Add frozen fruit or a banana, add the liquid and chop, frappe, and whip until it's all nicely blended together like a slurpee or an iced drink at one of those fancy shops.
