As you embark on your Optifast Diet you’ll become familiar with the powder shake mixes. These mixes are a bit different from the ready-to-drink items you might stow away in your fridge for a late morning. They come in simple flavors, including vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, and once you learn the ropes of the meal program you can really spice up the flavor by combining these mixes with some sugar-free solutions for a truly enjoyable drink.
Here are a few ways to add some fun to your Optifast Weight Loss beverages this spring:
Take your cup of Joe outside on a warm weekend morning by spicing up your Optifast Medical Weight Loss products with cold coffee. To do this all you will need is one 1.48 ounce packed of Optifast 800 Vanilla Powder and ¾ of a cup of cold coffee. Blend the ingredients together and voila! Want to make it into a frozen drink? Add ice to the blender and make your very own diet-friendly “Frappuccino.”
Lemon- Lime Spritzer
This beverage is perfect for a long spring or summer evening. To make this beverage you will need another packet the of the Optifast 800 vanilla powder, as well as 8 ounces of cold diet lemon-lime soda, such as diet Sprite, Sierra Mist or 7UP. Mix the ingredients in a blender with about 6 ice cubes for a frozen concoction that will satisfy your thirst and hunger at once.
The classic childhood favorite can come back to life while helping you stay on track with your weight loss goals. Using the Optifast 800 vanilla powder once again, you can make an orange creamsicle to enjoy this spring and summer. You’ll also need 12 ounces of cold diet-orange soda. Combine the two ingredients in a blender until the consistency is smooth and the powder is fully dissolved. You can then pour this over ice or blend ice with it to turn it into a frozen drink.
Each of these summer drinks has 160 calories and only 3 grams of fat total. They also have 18 grams of sugar and exactly 14 grams of protein. If you give any of these a try, make sure you are sticking with diet soda varieties. Regular soda will add another hundred calories and a whole lot more sugar to each of these recipes.
