Day One Pictures:
This was the shake that had been touted to " Taste like Cake".
I can honestly say it Does Not taste like cake. It is a sweet cream base, and it taste like Sweet Cream with a funky after taste.
Once you get past the funky after taste, it is not bad.
When it came to getting creative with flavors, I looked to my husband's honey pb, kool-aid stash, into my sample stash for some ovaltine mix, and frozen and fresh fruit.
I used what I had available to me.
When it came to the nutritional supplement side, I actually saw a greater weight loss, than when I used it for the weight loss side.

So, in my honest opinion, I would recommend it more as a nutritional supplement (which one shake a day consumption is recommended) vs a weight loss supplement (which two shakes a day consumption is recommended).
As mentioned before it is not a shake that taste like cake, it is a shake that taste like sweet cream as labeled on the bag, but with a bit of a funky after taste.
Once you get past the funky taste, and remember frozen fruit is a great helper.
When you use the frozen fruit, you won't have to use any ice, and you still get a thickened shake, that is delicious.
Honey Peanut Butter also made a great shake. Both the frozen fruit and PB took the chalky taste out of the mix, that makes the funky after taste.
