Edy’s Slow Churned Shakes & Smoothies

Edy’s Slow Churned Shakes & Smoothies are a new single-serve product (found in the freezer section) that you just add milk to, stir, and drink! I first learned about them because of some giveaways I saw posted. On my last trip to Walmart, I found the Vanilla shake, and the Tropical smoothie (mango, passion fruit and pineapple) varieties.

My son claimed the Tropical smoothie (and declared it delicious!) and drank it so fast I didn't get a chance to snap a photo. I did ask him to take a picture of me drinking the Vanilla, and this was the best of the bunch (I didn't have any straws so I just drank it out of the cup).

The Vanilla tasted great, and it was very easy to blend. I'm thinking next time I might add some of my sugar-free syrups (caramel, or raspberry, or lemon) to change up the flavor.

I like that these are relatively low in calories (~200 each after you add milk) and are great for having on hand for that time when you want a shake or smoothie. This is definitely something I can work into my diet and not feel guilty. I also love that they're self-contained... no blender needed!

There's currently 4 Shake flavors (Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Cookies n'Cream) and 4 Smoothie flavors (Strawberry Banana, Mixed Berry, Tropical and Sunrise Blend (peach, orange, banana)). I found them at Walmart for $1.50 each which is very reasonable. There's also a coupon I found for Buy 2, Get 1 Free which brings the price down to $1 each.
