I've tried it before-there are TONS of recipes to make the shakes! those are really good too, but it's more well rounded if you eat the ones with fruit in them also. My favorite shake is the chocolate covered strawberry-2 scoops of shake mix, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup frozen strawberries, and 1 TBSP cocoa. IF you like thick shakes, adding a little sf pudding mix really thickens em up. There are tons of ways to do it-I'm sure you'll be successful! Good luck!!
