Peaches and Cream RTD
This is amazing. I’ve been drinking the vanilla for over a year and love it so decided to try another flavor. It tastes like a lighter version of Chick fil a’s peach shake that they serve over the summer. Basically it’s melted soft serve ice cream. So yummy!!

Perfect breakfast
I really enjoy the strawberry and cream and the swiss chocolate. I use them every morning. Very filling and easy to grab on the go as they are premixed. My boyfriend even started drinking them as well and enjoys them. Hes also replaced them for breakfast over a fast food stop.

I drink 5 of these drinks a day. Could I hurt my kidney?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Potentially, yes. That is a lot of protein for your body to filter out especially if you are not working out to the point that you need that much protein.

Also, you should limit shakes to 2 a day. While it is lighter and easier to digest a shake, eating real healthy food is usually better.
