SlimFast 10g Protein Powder

Recently I received a coupon for $1.00 off one SlimFast product. I was looking on and come to find that SlimFast made a protein powder. I have been trying to find some alternatives to "other" expensive brands, because honestly I don't have the extra to spend big bucks on protein powder that I might not even like, Then I'd have a huge tub that I would have to drink, and feel guilty about.

Mixed with 8 oz. of fat free milk it has 10g of protein. Its 200 calories, 4g of fiber, and 24 vitamins and minerals. Though I wish it did have MORE protein, it is a better alternative than a regular milk shake. 
After tweeting the company that I wish there were more grams of protein in their product, I had looked on their website to find out that they do in fact make some that has 15g of protein. But unfortunately my Walmart didn't have any when I bought them. If mine never gets them I still would buy the 10g one either way because I made myself a recipe they tastes JUST like a chocolate milkshake. (With a hint of peanut butter taste)

Knockoff Milkshake

4 frozen cubes of milk (about 4 oz)
4oz of fresh milk
1 plain ice cube
1 scoop of SlimFast Rich Chocolate Royale
1 TBS of PB2 Chocolate (Can be found at Walmart)

I halved the recipe, then put it in the freezer for a dessert. Here is the end result.

This recipe is DELISH! I LOVE it!

I personally use Myfitnesspal and the calories on it says 232. But Sparkpeople says its 234.5 calories.
So its roughly 230-235 calories.
12.2g of protein

I also bought the French Vanilla though I haven't tried it yet. My mother has though. She made hers with frozen peaches.

Frozen peaches
4 frozen cubes of milk (about 4 oz.)
4 oz. of fresh milk
1 plain ice cube
1 scoop of SlimFast French Vanilla

She said she really likes it. Which I'll probably make that next.
