    Default Slim Fast Recipe

    Has anyone ever seen a copycat recipe for Slim Fast? Hubby wants to try it, but it's so bloody expensive!

    I have never seen a recipe for it anywhere but I would think that it would be pretty expensive to make it compared to buying it...

    You can usually find coupons for $1-$2 off and if you could stock up when its on sale. I buy a 6 pack of cans for about $4...when you think that its a whole meal thats a pretty good deal...lol... you can also find it on ebay for sale.

    Chocolate milk plus a multivitamin. That's about all Slim-fast is. It's an expensive gimmick.

    If he just wants convenient meal replacements, you can shop around the health food stores or drug stores, and just find the cheapest brand. Try to find one that's forumulated as a meal replacement, not just a snack.

    Slim Fast also contains fiber which is what makes it so filling. You could use any powdered fiber supplement and add it to your own shake recipe. I have done this in the past. I have also added powdered protein but of course that makes it more expensive but I just used a little bit. I'm sure dry milk would be ok too.
