Summer is a fun time of the year. I enjoy having friends and family over to share nice and relaxing sunny Sunday afternoons. We usually grill burgers, chicken wings and delicious fresh summer veggies. Play games, catch up and make the most out of it. This past weekend I wanted to surprise my guests with a mixed drink I recently found out about. It is the refreshing “Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise” created exclusively for Slim Fast by Dr Mixologist, Darryl Robinson, who is the host of “Drink up” on The Cooking Channel. I knew this drink had to be good. Not only it was created by an expert in mixed drinks, but also when I read the ingredients, which included SlimFast and frozen mixed berries, I was convinced this drink would be the talk of our Sunday afternoon gathering. Timing for finding this couldn't be better as we have been watching our curves and figures....
Who would have thought that SlimFast shakes could be used as a base for deliciously creamy summer cocktails/mocktails? And for those of us who are counting and watching our calorie intake, Dr. Mixologist’s new SlimFast recipes are only 130-190 calories per serving!
Here is the recipe to the fabulous, creamy, and refreshing SlimFast cocktail:
I had a batch made prior to my guests arrival, but needles to say it was not enough! My friends loved the “Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise” cocktail. They all wanted to learn how to make it, so we ended up gathering around the kitchen and I gave them a lesson on how to make Dr. Mixologist delicious cocktail using SlimFast.
In addition to the “Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise”, there are other yummy recipes like the “Sassy Strawberry Colada”, “Cinful Iced Latte”, and the “Tall Dark and Handsome”, all made with SlimFast and tasty ingredients. This summer we can drink responsibly and not feel the guilty about our calorie intake.
