      I use this powder in my Ninja blender along with a banana or strawberries. I mix the Vanilla and Stawberry packets together along with the fruit. It is delicious.

        I just had a chocolate smoothie - made with an overly ripe banana, ice cubes and a large glass of 1% milk - delicious and my husband loved it too.
        Very smooth drink. Great way to use up those over ripe bananas - I make smoothies out of them whenever they get that way. Don't like to eat them alone. I use other fruits too. "Waste not, Want not!"

            I have switched to Carnation's Instant Breakfast (from Slim-fast)because it has a higher protein lower carb per serving. I am not sure why but my box at home lists 5g. total protein and just 12g.total carbs per serving.....this is not what is listed in the "Nutrition" on this product on this site. Anyway, it has higher protein and lower carb than that found in some popular diet drinks....something important when trying to lose weight. I have not only lost the weight but have kept it off. I think this is due to the numbers and the fact that it tastes great....no gritty taste. My favorite flavor is chocolate but I like to vary using the variety package because I drink one for breakfast and then for a late day snack. It's just nice to have something other than another chocolate shake sometimes.

                I use this in smoothies every day. It adds fiber and protein without a ton of extra calories. I stocked a cabinet at a friend's house so I could have smoothies there, too. I noticed it was disappearing faster than I use it. Turns out, the neighbor-girl comes over and gets one every day, too. I bought extra.

                  The Carnation Instant Breakfast Sugar Free is a great product with a wonderful flavor and great health benefits. It is hard to find the variety pack at local grocery stores and Drugstore.com offers the best overall price for this product.

                    I had to go on a strict liquid diet for 2 weeks. It had to be 1200 a day. i drank six of these a day and it was great. My favorite is the vanilla. I am not a huge chocolate fan however this was an exception. i drank it with 1% milk. It does not have that artificial taste to it. [...]

                    I also have always been a big fan of the original and decided to switch over to the no sugar added to save some calories...I drink this on my way to work every morning. Both of these products mess up my stomach (in very bad ways) for the whole day. I really love them for the taste, convenience, and for the good stuff in them...but I really have a problem with the negative side effects. AND DID WE REALLY NEED FIBER ADDED IN THIS ONE??? I REALLY THINK NOT. IT'S BAD ENOUGH ALREADY!!! hahaa.

                    I've been a fan of the regular Carnation Instant Breakfast for years, but was intrigued by this No Sugar Added version that has also contains fiber. Surprisingly, it doesn't have that weird artificial sweetener taste. It tastes nearly identical to the original! Now I've switched over to this No Sugar Added version every day and save myself some calories. I drink one in the morning and it keeps me satisfied until lunch time.
