I am always looking for refreshing drinks to enjoy on our front porch evenings while hubby has his beer. It can be a cocktail and mocktail, it depends on my mood. One of the main things I want in a cocktail or mocktail is low calories though because if I were to drink every evening, it would not be pretty. I also look for something tasty and refreshing since at the end of the day as the sun is setting, it can be warm here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. That is why when I was asked to create a cocktail using Slim Fast, I was thrilled. The thought of having a creamy and delicious drink for my evenings was great.
I made a Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise! Using SlimFast in a cocktail/mocktail was a little strange but it worked out well. Using Slim Fast, cut down on the calories yet gave me a really tasty and refreshing drink. The drink is made with Slim Fast French Vanilla Shake, frozen berries, fresh ginger and honey. If you want to make it a cocktail, you just add white or raspberry rum, yummy! I also added a fresh strawberry as a garnish! The drink was refreshing and sweet. The ginger added a pop of spicy freshness to the drink. Delicious!
