Why Calcium Caseinate protein? Casein is the predominant form of protein found in milk - 80% of a cow’s milk is made up of casein. This milk protein digests slower than other protein sources. It delivers a steady supply of amino acid for longer periods of time which helps maintain muscle mass in strenuous conditions. When you drink a WonderSlim Protein Shake, you feel fuller longer. This helps you reduce calories without increasing the times you feel hungry. WonderSlim weight loss shakes are healthy, delicious, and beneficial during your weight loss journey.

Excellent tasting
by LizR on 6/23/2011
I was so happy to see that we now have the option of NO ASPARTAME in the shakes. There are questionable reports of it and it does give me a headache sometimes. These are excellent! Thank you!
I didn't miss the aspartame!
by A on 7/6/2011
I love the original shake/puddings and was worried that these would not taste as good. I tried the chocolate and mocha and was so happy I did! These are great! So creamy and taste wonderful. I didn't miss the aspartame for sure!! Will always buy these in place of the original now.
Excellent Taste
by chiefs girl on 7/8/2011
These shakes are highly recommended. I like all flavors. If you shake it really well with crushed iced and let it sit for a few minutes it gets very thick and yummy. You will not be disappointed. Very filling and definitely holds you over. I'm not hungry after having these shakes.
Mix it as directed, or blend with a lot of ice and fruit(s)
by DAGibson on 7/8/2011
This is my favorite protein shake. I mix it in a shaker bottle as directed (a bit more water than the directions) to run out the door in the mornings or when I need an extra umph I grab my blender add some water lots of ice and toss in whatever fruit I have on hand...the later is my favorite. I even mix up a big batch for my family - they all love it and have no idea how nutritionally good it is for them.
by Teri on 7/13/2011
I love the creme puddings the best of any of the puddings - I sometimes make them as a shake too.
This is my absolute favorite!
by Ree on 8/9/2011
These shakes are great - I have tried the chocolate strawberry & vanilla (and all are good) but mocha cream is my absolute favorite. I have ordered it for about 3 years and still have yet to get tired of it. You can make it into a pudding a thick shake or a less thick shake (which is what I do) by adding lots of water. You can also mix it with coffee and make a nice mocha drink. This drink does not have that funny fake taste that some tend to have. If you haven't tried these they are definitely worth trying.
Best ever!!!
by Dottie on 8/14/2011
The taste is great. Does not taste like a diet shake. I'm ordering more. I love it.
Makes a really creamy hot chocolate.
by JAlexander on 8/28/2011
I use to buy the hot chocolate drink but now that there is aspartame free I tried the shake/pudding creamy chocolate hot. The water has to be boiling and you have to really mix it up. It is great!!! I add my scoop of tasters choice coffee and it is an every morning drink for me.
I love that it finally has no aspartame
by Terriann on 8/29/2011
It takes a little getting used to but it is much healthier and I am happy you finally took it out of the formula. Thank you.
by queenie on 9/1/2011
I am sensitive to aspartame this aspartame free product is delicious !! I have added black coffee diet cream soda and it is a decadent pleasure. I keep one made in fridge and when I get up @ 2a.m. for cookie break this truly satisfies soothes and I go right back to sleep. This product does NOT have that diet food aftertaste the cardboard box taste etc. I truly enjoyed this shake and would recommend to anyone just starting the program!!
by Alil2loveable on 9/11/2011
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE..... I am definitely not a chocolate fan of any kind so I ordered the variety pack to see what I would like. These shakes make me feel like I am not on a diet and I am cheating they taste so freaking good.
Love it!!!
by Crawfishmonica on 9/16/2011
I find the shake/puddings out of this world. The only ones I wasn't too crazy about were the strawberry and vanilla too sweet and funny aftertaste. Any of the others are almost sinful they are so good. I use the chocolate ones for dessert!
Wonder Slim Pudding Shakes
by Bebe on 10/16/2011
I simple love the strawberry shakes.They are the best I have tasted thick and creamy with no after taste. Only 100 calories a great meal. I'm so glad I found them. I lost 30 pounds with the shakes. Thanks Bebe
Great and tasty
by R Byrd on 10/16/2011
I usually get the regular chocolate but this time I decided to mix it up and get the regular and the aspartame free and I love it. Didn't think the taste would be as good but man was I wrong.I would definitely continue to buy it!!!!!!
Love these shakes
by JoJo on 10/23/2011
These shakes are awesome. I prefer them to Medifast any day! I have recommended them to my friends that were using Medifast and for the price and taste they have switched. I have not tried one shake that I did not like. They are all very good and I also use them in place of milk or cream to flavor my coffee. I love Wonderslim and all their products.
by SUZ on 10/30/2011
I wanted something chocolate with protein so I ordered chocolate shakes from every brand. Wonderslim is by far the best. I won't buy any other brand! (Updated on 10/31/2011.)
Aspartame free pudding
by Trishie on 11/5/2011
Glad to say that these puddings are yummy. I use 1% milk to make them and they come out very creamy. Have tried the chocolate cream hazelnut cream and the chocomint.
A Great on the go meal
by Jay on 11/7/2011
Love the Chocolate Vanilla and Mocha they are my faves. These Shakes are very filling and tasty I use them as my last meal of the day.
Love this pudding!
by Praiser on 11/10/2011
This pudding is so yummy! I love it so thick and tasty!
SO much better!
by Cheryl on 11/14/2011
I'm so happy they made an aspartame free version. I didn't like the original ones at all. I thought they left a nasty aftertaste and because they are such a huge part of the WonderSlim diet plan (3 per day?) I opted for a different more expensive diet. Now that these are aspartame free and DELICIOUS I can save money and switch over to Wonderslim products exclusively. I'm SO excited about this! Hazelnut Cream is my favorite. Yum yum!
great for in between meal snack
by SassyCiss on 12/2/2011
I use Wonderslim pudding/shakes for an in between snack. I add a dab of vanilla extract to give it more flavor and a tbls of whipped cream. (but be careful of the amount) These puddings have helped me to lose 45 pounds!
Aspartame free products
by DrMom on 12/4/2011
I just tried the aspartame free shakes and I am so pleased! They are delicious. I like them better than my previous favorites. Also the Hazelnut coffee cream and the dark chocolate cream were new flavors to me and they are GREAT. Thanks.
A must have
by Lori m. on 12/18/2011
Try the dark cocoa and hazelnut it's hard to believe you're on a diet. One month in and I'm down 11.5 lbs.
Smooth and Creamy
by StuckonDiets on 12/29/2011
These are excellent! I was very skeptical about these pudding/shakes. I have not used them as a pudding yet but as they shake they work great and have a wonder taste. I prefer the chocolate over the vanilla.
Favorite dessert
by MaxieG on 1/1/2012
Great tasting treat high protein low carbs tastes as good as old fashioned chocolate pudding. (Updated on 1/2/2012.)
Quite Good
by Kay on 1/4/2012
I've had all of the flavors except the hazelnut cocoa and strawberry cream and I think they are quite good. Vanilla is probably my least favorite. They mix amazingly well in the shaker and I kind of like the thickness of them; it makes me feel like I'm getting more. I'll definitely keep using them!
by LBrodeur on 1/10/2012
These two are my favorites so far! The vanilla is not bad however the chocomint has such a nice combination of both flavors that it's not overdone one way or the other! And the strawberry is good too! I actually use more water than called for and I find the shakes less sweet that way. I like sweetness but too much gets old after awhile. I only use an extra 2-3 oz. of water and it makes a big difference!!
Awesome shakes
by Jan on 1/21/2012
Love these shakes the chocolate cream & vanilla are my favorites. I love the chocolate one warmed up & add my coffee gives you a very smooth & rich mocha. I use the vanilla mainly as pudding add a few drops of lemon extract or banana or coconut & you have a very yummy treat.
by Kathy on 1/24/2012
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shakes. I am a chocoholic and go for the chocolate flavors mostly so when they added the Dark Chocolate Cream now it is my favorite flavor (nice and chocolaty not bitter like you might think of for dark chocolate). These shakes helped me loose a lot of weight (235lbs) but most of all I still use them for maintenance to get my Chocolate Shake fix (sometimes I put it in the blender with a 100 calorie ice cream cup ice and water that makes a nice creamy milk shake). :-)
Taste so much better!
by thrower4life on 2/2/2012
These taste so much better than the original shakes! My favorite so far is the Dark Cocoa Cream and the Hazelnut Cocoa Cream.
Like these a lot!
by Abby on 2/3/2012
These are nice and creamy. I drink mostly shakes. Favorites are Mocha Cream Hazelnut & Cocomint. The Chocolate is my least favorite. Has more of a diet shake taste than the rest for some reason. I'd give the Chocolate Cream a 3 star rating. It's all about peoples taste though some may love it.
by mose on 2/19/2012
Really good...so much better than aspartame free shakes I had tried before.
Love it!
by Jenn on 2/21/2012
I received my order yesterday and was very excited to try these products. I tried the WonderSlim dark cocoa cream pudding-shakes as a pudding and was very pleasantly surprised by how delicious it is! I am very picky when it comes to anything chocolate and this product is very good. There is no weird aftertaste and it is filling. I am not a gastric bypass patient so I need at least 1200 calories on my diet so for extra calories and protein I added a scoop of whey protein powder and it worked very well. But it is also very good without adding anything extra! It is also very convenient; all you do is add water so you can mix it up anywhere. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a high protein snack or meal replacement that is delicious and also convenient!
Aspartame free shakes
by Titi on 2/21/2012
These are very good i loooove the Mocha cream and the hazelnut and dark cocoa. The vanilla is really good when you add a frozen banana or some other fruit and blend with flax seeds and sugar free caramel or hazelnut syrup yuuuummmmyy!
Awesome Shake
by Kate on 2/23/2012
Of all the diet/protein shakes I've tried this is the best. Tastes just like thick chocolate milk!!!! Love it! I can see sticking to this program if this is how the shakes are! Yum! Also I received this as a sample one packet. I will definitely be ordering some more!
I love these
by binnyblonde on 2/23/2012
This is my favorite shake so far. It is on the sweet tasting side.. but that's ok with me. I LOVE vanilla. It doesn't taste like any sort of diet shake - no funny after taste. It's actually good.
I like these shakes!
by lpm on 2/28/2012
These are filling and taste good- I had the chocolate cream and vanilla. The chocolate seems to be loaded with calories but is not- very tasty! I find myself adding a bit more water to make it a little thinner.
My favorite!
by Jenn on 3/1/2012
All of the pudding/shakes are amazing! so far I have tried the dark cocoa cream hazelnut cream and cocoa mint and they are all absolutely fantastic. I usually have them as puddings and they really get me through when I am having those nasty chocolate cravings! I look forward to my afternoon pudding snack everyday and I definitely plan to order more and stock up!
by vicrn on 3/12/2012
Better tasting and more affordable than MF. I'd buy them again. (Updated on 3/13/2012.)
Great taste
by Kelly on 3/14/2012
Has great flavor mixes well. I will order more of these in the future.
Better than MF
by Frank on 4/3/2012
I did MF diet 10 yrs ago and lost 45 lbs in 2 months. Trying the same with Wonderslim now. I do 4 shakes a day plus 100 cal veggie meal. Lost 12 lbs week 1 and hope to make 45 by end of May. I think the Wonderslim shakes are superior in taste and consistency to MF shakes. I mix them with 12 oz diet creme soda and they are very good and filling. I am never hungry. You can also get Orange flavor by mixing diet orange soda with Vanilla. I think these shakes will also work after weight is lost as a transition back to not dieting. Cost is also much lower. 5 stars!
Great pudding with NO ASPARTAME!!
by BWise on 4/6/2012
I love these puddings and they are available with NO ASPARTAME!! I am prone to migraines but the Vanilla Cream pudding aspartame free pudding is proving risk free for me. Vanilla is really good by itself or mixed with fresh berries mango or a little nonfat greek yogurt. I still can't manage the chocolate flavors because I can't manage chocolate. But I'm hoping Wonderslim will come out with Butterscotch aspartame free soon...
i love these!!
by madmit on 4/9/2012
I have had the chocolate mint and the mocha cream and both are outstanding. I look forward to them every day. Both flavors are just right - not too much of one over another in each. I highly recommend them and they are very filling. I mix them with water. When i made the chocolate mint as a pudding I put a few chocolate chips in it. It really hit the spot for a dessert.
Best shake EVER!
by Jade875 on 4/18/2012
These are BY FAR THE BEST shakes out there! Packed with protein great on the go and de-licious!!!! I got the Aspartame free this time and was wondering how they'd taste-wonderful!! Must buy/try!!
do this diet
by jojo on 4/22/2012
This shake looks amazing.. I know what I want to do now. I want to do shakes because it is easy; you can just pick it up drink it and you don't have too take a bunch of time to make it up. I've researched other shakes like slimfast and others ect. but this seems to be the best one...I mean look at the ingredients! It is great especially if you are on a diet. People say this can't be long term but i think it can or until you lose the amount of weight you want. Plus this shake has no aspartame Yess NOW THIS IS MY KIND OF SHAKE. my email is [email protected] if anyone needs support or anything msg me their ... Like i said before i got my inspiration to do this from Impatient dieter she's such an inspiration check her out at Youtube :))
Absolutely Fabulous!
by Judy on 4/24/2012
These products are not only delicious but good for you. I always add two tiny tsp. of sweet and low to make it sweeter. Not only is this great for dieting but for those counting carbs diabetics kidney disease etc. they work to help you feel great as well as look great.
WonderSlim Aspartame Free Pudding-Shakes
by franko on 4/29/2012
best shakes ive had in a long time
wonderslim pudding shakes
by Kat on 4/29/2012
I love theses shakes and am using them to lose weight. I have to say my favorite is the chocolate. The variety box is a great way to sample different flavors. I like all of them except the strawberry. But my Uncle who is also using the shakes says the strawberry is his favorite. They are taste great and are low in carbs which works for my blood sugar.
Vanilla yummy yum yum!!
by Steph on 5/7/2012
This pudding is always my favorite!! It's creamy and can be used as pudding or shake!! Add brown rice and raisins and you have guilt free rice pudding!!! Possibilities are endless. This is a must have in my house!
Love the Mocha Cream
by Carol on 5/17/2012
This was my first time trying the Mocha Cream -- love it! Try it REALLY cold and it's awesome.
Chocolate Cream and Dark Cocoa the only way to go
by Nancy on 5/20/2012
Amazingly tasty treat the Chocolate Cream and Dark Cocoa don't have that diet-y taste; really didn't like the Hazlenut or Vanilla flavors which did to me seem diet-y.
by NPD on 5/23/2012
Chocolate is amazing! It's like drinking a milkshake every morning! Add a dollop of peanut butter in the blender with the milk and ice and it is out of this world!
A Shake For Me
by Lucytlc on 5/26/2012
A great tasting shake. I found I like the chocolate the best. It is great for lunch and for on the go.
Love this!!!
by K.Lewis on 8/14/2012
This is so GOOD! And it is Aspartame free which is a big plus for me. You have to buy this and then you will understand why I am so excited to find a product that tastes great is high in protein and low carb.
Super Treat
by Pat on 8/14/2012
This pudding is incredibly delicious. I make it with 1% milk and it is filling tasty and leaves no after-taste. I have tried several other flavors and like them but this one is the best!
by KM on 8/14/2012
Really yummy! Not too thick really tasty. I have tried all of the flavors in the variety pack and I love them all -- especially the mocha and the strawberry -- and I never like strawberry flavored stuff! Put a little cinnamon in the vanilla shake and it's SO GOOD. I'm not sure what the complaints could possibly be about it missing the aspartame -- all I can say is Yum yum YUM!
Good taste!
by Amanda on 6/29/2011
I bought the Mocha Cream flavor and it's delicious. No weird after taste. I think I'll buy some more!
by Lis on 7/1/2011
This is such a great treat! Love the chocolate flavor and it makes eating healthy a pleasure.
by Tdean on 7/13/2011
These shakes taste just as good as the original shakes but without the aspartame! Mocha is our fave!
Tasty and Filling
by eward on 8/30/2012
These were surprisingly tasty easy and very filling. A great quick snack to ease those urges and cravings.
by CaliGirl on 12/6/2011
I'm allergic to artificial sweeteners and this shake doesn't upset my tummy! I'm so happy I finally found a protein shake that I can drink! The Mocha is also very yummy! I like Strawberry and Chocolate Hazelnut too... I wish these has a little more protein in each shake but oh well it's better than nothing! Highly recommended! (Updated on 12/7/2011.)
Surprisingly Delicious
by gerstygirl on 11/4/2011
I really didn't know what to expect when ordering the variety pack. But OMG this stuff is actually very good. The Mocha Cream has the hint of coffee and chocolate the CocoMint Cream tastes just like a Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie and the Strawberry Cream reminds me of Strawberry Nestle Quick milk. I still have to try the Chocolate Cream and Vanilla Cream but I have high expectations of both based on the other 4 flavors. They are good as a pudding or a shake - both tasted great!!! I might even try the Hazelnut Cream one too :-) Highly recommend!!!
Love these shakes!
by Bwhutch on 8/30/2012
I love these shakes but especially on the go. They mix up easily and taste great. I am enjoying adding pumpkin and spices to them right now for a lovely pumpkin pie smoothie.
These shakes hit the spot!
by dawna on 1/11/2012
Awesome flavor and texture! I add 8 oz of fat free organic milk and ice then mix it in a blender. Yum! Great for breakfast or anytime.
Very Good
by cab on 8/30/2012
Very good taste happy it doesn't contain aspartame. Satisfying and easy. Will buy again!
by CollegeGirl on 8/30/2012
These shakes are absolutely amazing and affordable! I'm a college student on a budget that has been struggling with my weight for years. My mother had gastric bypass surgery and suggested I try meal replacement shakes that helped her lose 10% percent of her weight before she was allowed to actually get the surgery. It has been 10 days and I have lost 17 pounds. I cannot believe it especially because they taste like milkshakes!!! I suggest purchasing the wonder slim blender for only 6.99 and take these shakes on the go! My favorite flavor is Mocha and I just ordered Choco-mint and Chocolate Cream! I cannot wait - 80 more pounds to lose!!!!
by Annie on 8/30/2012
I have had a few shakes in my time these are the best. They taste like the flavor listed and are great with milk or water!
Aspartame free and delicious!
by LGilstrap on 4/24/2012
I've been hearing so much about aspartame being bad that when I saw these shakes I had to try them. Well let me tell you they're absolutely delicious with no after taste at all. I truly hope that there will be more aspartame free shakes bars etc available in the near future.
by llilacs on 8/30/2012
I've only made this as pudding but it is definitely good. And filling! Fairly smooth texture not too sweet and sets up really quick so it's ready fast.
by angel on 6/21/2012
This is good as a pudding or a shake. Either way it's great taste and NO after taste. I'm so glad there is something out there I can add to my diet.
Wonderslim is great
by PJOMFT on 7/28/2012
This is a fantastic product. Not only does it have a very good protein count but the carbs are low too! The flavors are truly delicious there is no chalky taste at all. They are satisfying and easy to use. I always carry a few with me in case I can't have a regular meal and they get me through the hunger. Other products have a lot of calories and a lot of carbs. try these you will be pleasantly surprised.........
Better than expected
by Diane on 9/4/2012
I'm picky about protein shakes but these are great. I actually look forward to drinking them. All the flavors I've tried have been great (Mocha Cocomint Dark Cocoa and Chocolate). I like adding instant coffee to the Dark Cocoa and Chocolate Cream but they taste good plain. I add capella flavor drops to the Vanilla Cream. My preferred way to make these up is to mix it with 10-12oz water in the blender bottle and then add ice. I appreciate having the Aspartame free choice.
by Kendra on 9/10/2012
These shakes are EXCELLENT! Especially the Hazelnut! The taste was incredible!!! I've had Medifast Shakes recently...these are FAR better!!! And wonderful flavours to choose from!
OMG Creamy Goodness!
by Lisa H on 9/13/2012
Smells and tastes like Swiss Miss except this is cold. If I could heat this up in the winter I would be in heaven!
by Karen B on 9/13/2012
I bought the variety pack and so have tried every flavor except Hazelnut Cocoa Cream and Dark Cocoa Cream. I like ALL of them they are a great pick-me-up when I feel like I'm starving between meals. My afternoon snack is a cup of coffee and a little extra nonfat milk with the Vanilla Cream mixed in in a thermos with ice cubes to keep it cold til I get to it. I'll be ordering more! The Blender Bottles are great for mixing these up on the go. I use 10 oz of water to thin it up a bit more.
by Alex on 10/19/2012
So far I love all the puddings/shakes (berry is my least favorite but it's still okay )-- a tip when you are making the shake: add ice when shaking and then pour in to a glass. All shakes taste better extremely cold.
Best shakes out there
by Frank on 12/10/2012
All of the chocolate flavors are very good. I mix them with diet cream soda, stir well and put the glass in the freezer for 30 minutes. Very easy to lose weight drinking 4 shakes a day. I lost 40 lbs in 2 months last year. After gaining some back, I am doing a 45 day repeat hoping to lose 25-30. Lost 10 first week.

I don't really like the vanilla and strawberry but the key is still getting them very cold.
very filling and delicious
by Andrea on 2/3/2013
Try the Aspartame free chocolate cream mixed to direction then add about 4oz of left over black coffee. Holy cow.
Very good!
by Leanne on 3/7/2013
Creamy and chocolat-y. I love this stuff!
by Petrina on 3/12/2013
Love this shake, was previous on Medifast but Wonderslim blows their food out.Thx!
Seriously tasty
by JA on 3/16/2013
So good. Make sure you have it very cold - tastes better somehow that way. I had mine whipped up in my Ninja with a couple ice cubes - just like a malt! A very filling and satisfying drink.

WonderSlim Chocolate Cream is bar far my favorite pudding. Better than Medifast chocolate pudding!

by Sherry on 5/22/2013
Love this pudding, its very smooth
Chocolate Cream Is Yummy!
by Charlene on 6/24/2013
Love this especially when it's very cold. Mixes very well. Satisfies a desire for something sweet, and for chocolate too! Go figure. Aspartame free makes it especially wonderful, no side effects.
Love my pudding!
by CHERYLYN on 6/28/2013
I love all of the pudding flavors. I make my pudding in the morning, put it in the fridge to get really cold & when I want a snack, it's ready!
Tastes Great!
by JMH on 7/14/2013
I love the shakes. They are thick and rich and taste wonderful. They mix up very quick and easy. Will buy them over and over again.
Great Chocolate Taste
by Sally on 8/3/2013

This stuff is the greatest! And, you can make a pudding, or make it into a shake. Tastes really great. I sometimes use the shakes for lunch - very filling, very tasty
this product is great
by Sherry on 5/22/2013
Love this pudding, its very smooth
Chocolate Cream Is Yummy!
by Charlene on 6/24/2013
Love this especially when it's very cold. Mixes very well. Satisfies a desire for something sweet, and for chocolate too! Go figure. Aspartame free makes it especially wonderful, no side effects.
Love my pudding!
by CHERYLYN on 6/28/2013
I love all of the pudding flavors. I make my pudding in the morning, put it in the fridge to get really cold & when I want a snack, it's ready!
Tastes Great!
by JMH on 7/14/2013
I love the shakes. They are thick and rich and taste wonderful. They mix up very quick and easy. Will buy them over and over again.
Great Chocolate Taste
by Sally on 8/3/2013
This is my favorite chocolate pudding. It's creamy and smooth and mixes easy with water. A great source of protein.
Very good Tastes like Choc Milk
by Kelly on 8/29/2013
Very good
by Lindsey on 10/4/2013
Definitely my favorite high-protein low-carb shake!! I mix a little instant coffee in it in the morning and it tastes like a mocha frappucino!! Without the coffee, it tastes like chocolate milk!!
These are great!
by SHANNON on 11/7/2013
Chocolate shake tastes like chocolate milk, even though it is mixed with water. The best protein shake I have ever had. It mixes well and no weird aftertaste.
Chocolate Cream Aspartame Free Shakes!
by LadyFarmer1 on 12/27/2013
LOVE them!! The flavor is awesome, nothing residual. They disolve best in cooler water, and then I heat them in the microwave! Talk about awesome, Chocolate Cream hot chocolate drink!!! Aspartame free makes this even better. I have a sensitivity to aspartame so I have to be careful to avoid it, the sweeteners used in this drink work wonderfully and don't affect me negatively.
Chocolate Cream Blended Drink - Yummy !!
by Lucy on 12/28/2013
Chocolate Cream is my favorite flavor of replacement drinks and WonderSlim is my favorite brand! Love it! It's so creamy, like really high quality ice cream. I keep my shaker bottle in the frig with cold water in it and just pour in the mix and shake up my drink when needed. It's nice and cold that way and it tastes delicious. Much better than even more expensive brands I have tried. Yum ! High protein, low fat, low carbs and sugars. You can't beat these drinks.
For a super healthy blended shake try this :
Add into your Ninja blender -
1tsp Stevia sweetener
1/2 tsp cinnamon
chocolate cream drink mix or any flavor you like
2 cups fresh organic spinach
1 cup fresh organic kale
10 ounces of cold water ( mix in left over coffee for great taste)
8 to 10 pieces of ice
blend on high for 45 to 60 seconds or to your liking
Amazing taste!!
by Melissa on 1/12/2014
I love it with skim milk or water!! The taste is great!!
Love the texture.
by Peggy on 1/30/2014
I love this product because I can eat it as a pudding. It gives me an option that I love.
A Yummy Shake
by WENDY on 3/14/2014
I've been on Nutrisystem for about a year and have been using their shakes. I've always been happy with their shakes but decided to try these shakes as they were recommended by a friend. The stats are way better than the ones I was using so I gave these a try. WOW, these Wonderslim shakes are AMAZING!!! I added 6 ounces of water, 1 cup of ice, and blended it in my Ninja until smooth. It came out like a real chocolate shake and it felt like I was cheating on my weight loss program. It kicked my sweet cravings to the curb. I ordered one box to try and the very next day, had to put in another order to "stock up" on these shakes. For those wanting something close to a real chocolate shake, this shake is for you!
Back at it
by LaRita on 4/6/2014
I love Diet Direct. Service is superb. Wonderslim is easy to make, I can stick them in my purse and it helps me to knock pounds off quickly. I will admit, I tried other ready mixed products with a few more calories thinking this should be easy to substitute. The weight was stubborn and the pounds weren't moving like they do when I use my Wonder Slim. Thank you for having such a consistent, easy product. Don't change it.
by Danielle on 4/7/2014
I love these shakes. They are filling, taste good and very versatile. You can drink them, make pudding out of them and they make a delicious smoothie when combined with a serving of fruit and a little ice. Plus, they totally fufill my chocolate craving which is my weakness. My kids love them too. I have to order extra just so they can drink them. The Aspartame Free are my absolute favorite.
Yummy Good!
by Peggy on 4/8/2014
I dump a packet into a cup of cold coffee and mix with a spoon after it is thoroughly dissolved you can warm it up or drink as is....
I warmer months to come I will use Ice and make into shake but with this brutal winter. NO ICE!!!
great taste
by Vikiann M on 4/17/2014
I love this chocolate shake, I blend it with a frozen banana and I feel full and content for quite a while. Absolutely no diet taste at all ( a big plus for me).
by Charlene on 6/8/2014
Great tasteing, easy to mix, yummy hot, cold or as pudding - love it!
by Heather on 6/29/2014
This tastes entirely too good to be a "meal replacement" food. I will continue to order this after I've reached goal, for a healthy, protein-rich treat!
My favorite shake
by Linda on 9/3/2014
I have a shake every morning for breakfast. Have also made it a pudding just for a change. I love both.
WonderSlim Shakes and Puddings
by Debbie on 9/25/2014
I used WonderSlim,products to lose 35 pounds a few years ago. I have a very active social life that entails evenings of food and drink quite often. I have found that a shake in the morning, a shake or pudding at lunch satisfies me enough, and keeps the calorie count down enough to enjoy myself in the evening without gaining any weight back. I use the products now as a maintenance plan and it's working quite well. I enjoy the puddings and the shakes very much. They are easily transported to and from work also. I am slowing adding some of the other products, like snacks and desserts to m y orders to branch out.
Chocolate Cream Shake
by Maria on 10/3/2014
Tastes just like melted chocolate ice cream when made into a thick shake. Very good as meal replacement when you're on the go.
Love the flavors
by Jill on 10/9/2014
I am so happy that WonderSlim makes shakes without aspartame (which gives me a heck of a migraine.) I've tried all the flavors but this plain chocolate one is the best. It has a very rich flavor, and if you use very cold water and then let the mix sit for a bit it thickens up and is really filling.
by kkuyke01 on 10/24/2014
Very tasty
by Leo on 11/13/2014
Absolutely delicious product. I had one cup of unsweetened Trader Joe's almond milk, half of a frozen banana and six or seven ice cubes. Then I topped it with 2 tablespoons of 5 cal ready whip. Amazing!
Diet shake ...what?!?!?
by Melissa on 2/13/2015
So far this is my favorite flavor! it's so creamy ...add a little ice in your blender and you'll think you just hit the McDonalds drive-thru! No, but seriously, it is delicious and very filling.
by Amy on 2/20/2015
I have to say some of the products I have tried from other places are really disgusting but this pudding is awesome in both as a pudding and as a shake! Love them both!
by Amy on 2/20/2015

I drink this every single day, sometimes twice a day!
by Amy on 5/7/2015
This is the protein drink you have been looking for! It tastes great and has no aftertaste! I keep one made up in the fridge at all times so I there is always something there for me to eat with lots of protein. Also, I have had a gastric bypass surgery so I have to be careful what I eat and this perfectly fits the bill! I get my protein and nutrients and it is easy on my digestive system. I have gotten some for my whole family (scattered throughout the country) and they all love it too!
Love this shake!!
by Andipanda on 5/21/2015
This is the first Wonderslim product I've tried amd I'm amazed. Chocolatey Delicious!!! Thank you Diet Direct!! I feel hope for the firsttime in a long time that I will be able to meet my health goals. I followed the instructions to make a shake exactly and used one cup of 25 calorie cold and creamy unsweetened cashew milk. I used the shaker cup sent in my initial order. What I created was better than any chocolate milkshake I've ever had! A total of 125 calories and 15g protein? Incredible :-)
Great product, okay price
by Vincentdd on 8/16/2015
Creamy, great flavor and is aspartame free.
I mix it with either some peanuts or cashews and simply plain is delicious as well.

My preference is to make these as a pudding; but that's because I love pudding! The shakes are great too.

All these products are a good base from which to have as is or mix in your fave items; such as fresh fruit, nuts, etc.

The price, well - it is not bad but perhaps it would be better at around $10 instead of $13.

I have the lapband. I pack a box whenever I travel. That makes my meals very easy and effective. Many times there are hidden ingredients in restaurant foods; such as gluten, lactose, corn syrup, etc.. I eat everything I like in small portions and I Love pudding! lol So, these 100 calorie 15G protein meals are great.
Great tasty product
by Stan on 10/15/2015
These shakes are very good and good for you. They are extremely easy to prepare and the best thing about them is "NO ASPARTAME". Don't hesitate to order them.

Excellent product
by Daria on 12/8/2015
I can't decide which chocolate shake I like the best, but this is one of FAVS. I like to use shaker cup with one ice cube and shake (figuring I'm burning a few extra calories). While some may wish to slowly enjoy their shake, I usually gulp it down. I immediately feel full and usually have 2 shakes a day, sometimes getting in my veggie joe. Love these products and have only found one (cookie dough bar) which has aftertaste.
love the shakes
by Laurie on 12/22/2015
I LOOOOVE these shakes!! easy to whip up and great!!
by Laurie on 12/22/2015
YUM!!! YUM!! Can't believe How Good!
by Laurie-j on 2/9/2016
This chocolate shake is the best I've tasted ever - I can't believe it's just 100 calories. Thick and creamy! I make mine in the wonderslim shaker bottle with 8 oz of cold water and 2 ice cubes. shake it until the ice is almost all gone. I love it! This is also awesome as a pudding, too. Thanks for a superb shake/pudding!
I like it
by MCR26 on 2/22/2016
This is good. Pudding is a nice option to have.
by Linda on 4/30/2016
Love love love this product. When you have a craving for a chocolate shake this does it for me.
Chocolate Cream
by M. on 6/13/2016
This is by far the BEST shake I have ever tasted in my life, I have been doing this for the last 3 months and I am never tired of this particular shake! I love the fact that it does not leave an after-taste, it's gluten free, and aspartame-free. MUST GET!
Favorite Shake!
by debbie on 6/16/2016
Love the creaminess of this chocolate shake
by Christine on 9/22/2016
Tastes good, mixes up nice in the shaker with no lumps
My favorite!
by Wendy on 11/3/2016
Tastes incredible! Very filing and tastes great
by Sherry on 11/9/2017
Amazing taste...can't believe this is diet food.
Delicious and filling!
by Gilda on 3/1/2018
I find out the shakes absolutely delicious, I have been searching for a tasty protein supplement since my bariatric surgery 6 years ago and I have finally found. I add half a teaspoon of cocoa powder to the shake to cut down the sweetness and it gives it an extra chocolately taste.
by Tracey on 7/16/2018
This is a delicious shake, it's my favorite 'go to' meal replacement. It's very satisfying and an instant cure for chocolate and/or sweet cravings. I used meal replacement shakes before from a medically supervised plan and WonderSlim's shakes are far better tasting.
by Margaret on 3/1/2019
Also good mixed with vanilla meal replacement for a lighter flavor
by Margaret on 3/16/2019
great as pudding and/or shake,
Chocolate Cream
by Margaret on 3/25/2019
Smooth (as long as you make sure it's shaken well and dissolved) and flavorful. I think it tastes much better if chilled over night.
by Theresa on 5/17/2019
Very tasty without the aspartame!
Great tasting
by Brenda on 6/12/2019
I have been using it for about 6 days now. Already lost a few pounds by replacing one meal a day. I love the taste and consistency!! I add ice chips and shake it quite a lot and becomes very thick.
I am amazed
by betty boop on 8/12/2019
I started this diet (ala carte) 5 days ago, using this shake (using half water and half sugar free almond milk), the meal replacement bars, snack-os and pancakes replacing existing breakfast and lunches and eating a regular dinner and a yogurt and have lost 3 lbs in 5 days.* I am amazed. These shakes taste great, no aftertaste, creamy and filling. I will continue with these products. I have not changed much of anything else, same exercises etc. other than grabbing a bag of snack-o's when I feel the need instead of regular snacks. Just ordered more items.

* Results not typical. Weight loss will vary for each person based on their individual weight, metabolism, age, activity level and commitment to their plan.
by Lyn on 9/5/2019
I switched from Medifast to Wonderslim because of the difference in price. I like Wonderslim and combine it with a little almond milk, collagen powder, antioxidants like Ceylon cinnamon and ice cubes to make a smoothie. Also I put a dash of nutmeg. I feel much better when I have my daily shake. Today I did not not have time to make it until the evening, and I could feel the difference all day -- not as much energy and I just did not feel as well. After I made the shake for my dinner, I am now feeling much better. I have not made pudding with this product, but the shake is easy and effective. The price difference is significant. I would not say Wonderslim tastes better than Medifast, just different, and the difference is not a bad one. Overall it's a great product and I will continue. I am losing weight slowly which is best.
Great Around the Clock Treat
by SUZANNE on 10/7/2019
Wonderslim chocolate cream pudding/shakes are great tasting, high in protein and light in calories! For a yummy breakfast add a serving of raspberries or blackberries. At snack time add a tablespoon of crushed almonds or walnuts.
My favorite Wonderslim shake.
by Joan on 11/4/2019
I enjoy the shake and have been ordering it for years. I put a little less water in it and add five or six pieces of ice, mix it in the blender, and it is delicious. I prefer it over any other milkshake.
Best tasting protein rich shake ever
by Victoria on 12/31/2019
Drink this with half banana each morning to start metabolism. Have used for ten years or so after Roux-en-y gastric bypass 20 years ago. I won’t drink something that doesn’t taste good. Tastes good without banana too, but frozen half banana gives it extra thick texture plus potassium. A must to make with very cold water for optimum taste.
Great Tasting Shake
by Jean on 3/25/2020
The Chocolate Cream and Cocomint Cream shakes are my favorite flavors. I also appreciate the Aspartame Free option. I keep these on hand at all times for a quick meal or snack.
Love That They Are Aspartame Free
by Amy4 on 7/4/2011
Not as good as Medifast shakes. However a good alternative when on a budget. Wish Wonderslim had more aspartame free products!
These are perfect
by SLim12b on 7/31/2011
These shakes are perfect cannot rate versus ones with aspartame as I am just starting and decided to stick with these. That said I guessed at how much water I needed for the first time making them and I still thought they were pretty good I put too much. After getting proper measurements and a blender cup these are great. As a beginner who has tried other protein meal replacements for the calories and taste I am gladly on board the Wonderslim train. I really enjoy them and have already started losing weight.
by TFred on 9/13/2011
This was much better than expected. I really like that its aspartame free and I like the consistency as well. (Updated on 9/14/2011.)
Good shakes
by Limi on 11/10/2011
I normally get the variety pack and make them as a quick snack shake. I have also blended 2 together with ice for a meal replacement
Too sweet
by gabygal on 1/24/2012
While I loved the Dark Cocoa Cream flavor I found the aspartame free variety of the shake to be overly sweet. My taste preference is for the regular NON-aspartame shakes. I added a tablespoon of sugar free cheesecake pudding powder (and a little more liquid) when I made it as pudding. That made a great treat!
Marvelous product!!!
by babz on 4/14/2012
I've tried the Mocha Cream Chocolate Cream and the Hazelnut Cocoa Cream; have just re-ordered to include the Dark Chocolate. Can't wait to try that one. I really love the Hazelnut Cocoa Cream.
Great Taste, Smooth and Creamy
by NiceLady on 4/21/2012
Nice taste easy to mix..nice treat to satisfy the craving for a rich dessert
My Favorite Shake
by MrsKey on 4/26/2012
This is by far my favorite out of all the shakes and I've tried just about all of them. I started out with the one month supply so I received a variety. I make this shake in the blender with 6 ounces of water 2 cups of ice and a tablespoon of Torani's sugar free Coconut syrup. It turns into a delicious 20 ounce shake that rivals a milkshake!!
Good Product
by TheRattler on 5/27/2012
Most of these shakes are really good. They are good as a shake and as a pudding. #1 on the list is the Dark Chocolate Creme. The Chocolate Creme Vanilla Creme and Cocomint are great. The strawberry creme is not so good. The Hazelnut is absolutely disgusting.
Variety Pack
by Jay on 8/14/2012
The variety was my way of finding out which flavor I liked best. I am glad I ordered the sample pack but I won't order it again because I am definitely a chocolate cream fan. I found that I could drink the mocha cream or hazelnut cocoa cream and they were just ok but with chocolate cream mixed in they were actually good. I bought back in December so the dark cocoa cream wasn't included. I will definitely order the cocoa cream again!!
Very good product was happy with everything
by null on 8/30/2012
Good flavor filling and satisfying
pretty good...
by Tiff on 5/4/2013
I like this one the best. The flavor is really good and not very chalky. I'd buy this product again.
BEST of the bunch
by Judy on 7/26/2013
consistently smooth and not overly sweet. Other users have encouraged using in coffee.

The shake tastes very sweet. I add additional water than what it calls for
Compares to sugar-free Jello
by Michelle on 11/7/2015
I'm normally not a 'shake' person, unless there's ice cream involved. However, the WS shakes are creamy, tasty and have no chalky aftertaste. My favorite way to make though is into pudding. I stir it with a fork and it dissolves quickly. Put in the fridge for an hour and you've have a yummy pudding. Reminds me of the Jello sugar-free puddings when you make them with skim milk. Will def continue to order!
Tastes great
by SHANNON on 3/20/2016
I made the shake and it was thick and tasted great. I think it would be better as a pudding since it's so thick.
I would continue to buy this
by Jake on 2/17/2017
It's pretty good!
3 weeks in
by barbara on 5/15/2018
Been on this diet for 3 wks and barely taking in 600 calories aday. I thought wow this is great, But now i am wondering if i wanna continue. aftr 3 weeks went to my doctor appt feeling good till i stepped the scale and only lost 2 pds. I am doing everything right.

Aspartame free
by sabelkitty on 9/11/2011
I usually drink the chocolate and mint the most. However the aspartame free chocolate flavor isn't very yummy. There is a bad after taste. At the same time I think the aspartame strawberry is better than the original.
by aza on 1/17/2012
These puddings are okay. The texture is a little grainy. They do thicken but are somewhat lacking in taste. I will use them if I am out of my other 100 calorie puddings.
by T on 5/17/2012
I am going to preface all of my reviews with: This IS a diet product so I was not expecting gourmet food. 'Edible' is basically what I'm looking for in these products. That being said... Vanilla: Blech! I put some of it on top of the chocomint or Mocha Cream and I can choke it down. Same with the STRAWBERRY. Not good. Chocomint: This I love. Well love may be a strong word as they ALL have a VERY strong fake taste but I think the mint may counteract some of that? idk but so I didn't completely waste the $300 I spent on this package if I mix the others with this they're edible. Chocolate Cream: I didn't like it. It wasn't real chocolaty and again with the strong fake taste. I put it in a blender with some ice and a banana and it's definitely MUCH better. Mocha Cream: This I love as well. I would say this is the most chocolaty of the bunch and I will add the vanilla or strawberry to this as well to make the edible. (Updated on 5/18/2012.)
by diane on 9/21/2013
made it into pudding for my sweet tooth. it has a strangely gel-like texture. not really like pudding at all.
Not a fan of chocolate but still liked this!
by Lana on 6/30/2019
Three stars only because I’m not a big fan of chocolate. Am finding that the shakes are a bit too sweet for me when mixed as directed but are perfect if I increase the water. This was actually pretty good and made for a nice snack with blueberries on the side.
Aspartame Free...not a fan
by MrsKingers on 12/31/2011
I am a big fan of WonderSlim products but this one...was not one I will purchase again. It has a pretty nasty after taste. However..I will finish what I bought and then stick to my regular chocolate shakes and hot chocolate!
by GollyPolly on 9/1/2012
I lost 20 lbs on another popular 'shake' diet but these products were less expensive so I thought I'd give them a go. Bottom line I'd rather spend more and get a tastier product. I tried the Hazelnut Cocoa Creme the Mocha Cream and the Dark Chocolate Shakes. They all are very thin (not shake-like) compared to the other company's product and have a very unpleasant metallic aftertaste. I gave it two stars just because I can choke them down. Otherwise I'd give it one star. Totally not impressed. You get what you pay for.
not----sending back
by clair on 6/17/2015
Was creamy, but lumpy, I just stirred & shook it. But the aftertaste, ALL DAYLONG
Don't get the mocha
by Lola on 8/21/2011
I was very disappointed with the mocha pudding. I was excited about the aspartame free product and that's why I ordered it. But to my taste it tasted like butterscotch and I hate butterscotch. Sorry this one is a thumb's down. I ordered a lot of them and now I have to figure out a way to make them palatable.
Not for me....
by jerry on 11/20/2011
Lacks depth in taste... more a malty taste than a chocolate... Texture as a pudding is poor.. If you want a malty drink probably OK but certainly not to my taste. No richness to satisfy the craving.. (Updated on 11/21/2011.)
Aspartame Free...NO Thank you!
by on 8/14/2012
While I love the original Wonderslim Chocolate Cream shakes the ones with Aspartame free are just too nasty for me to choke down. They leave an aftertaste in your mouth as well as taste like metal while drinking it. I will forever stick with the original Wonderslim Chocolate Cream with the Aspartame in them which I LOVE!
awful taste, awful texture
by Sheila on 10/7/2012
I read the reviews and thought this was going to be a good choice because many people said they liked these products. They were terrible tasting like some kind of chemical and the texture was gritty.
