Well, I am not sure about the nutritional stuff and there are ladies here who can answer that part better than I. However, I would suspect that any nutritional supplement shakes are not recommended on SBD. Remember this is about good carbs, natural foods and avoiding processed foods.
It might be OK for an occasional treat on P2, but my rule of thumb is generally if you have to ask if its OK...it usually isn't. JMHO.

I would be concerned about having maltodextrin as the second ingredient so there is probably a lot of it. Here is what I found:
maltodextrins are easily digestible carbohydrates made from natural corn starch. The starch is cooked, and then acid and/or enzymes are used to break the starch into smaller polymers (a process similar to that used by the body to digest carbohydrate).
maltodextrins are polymers of dextrose (sometimes labeled "glucose polymers"). They do not contain significant quantities of protein, fat or fiber.
Corn-based maltodextrins are safe for patients with celiac disease since they do not contain proteins from wheat, barley, oats or rye. They are not known to contain MSG.
Diabetics should follow the advice of their physicians. maltodextrinís glycemic index should be considered metabolically equivalent to glucose (dextrose).
It sounds like a Frankenfood to me!

Traci, how about making your own smoothies with yogurt, a tiny bit of SF/FF pudding mix, and lots of healthy stuff, like cinnamon, flaxseeds, protein powder, milk? Or you could try cocoa powder and splenda or syrup. Still yummy, but not full of those unpronounceable ingredients.
