Shaken Udder Milkshakes – My Family Ties

Shaken Udder 

Just recently I was lucky enough to win a supply of Shaken Udder milkshakes, to say my girls were over the moon is an understatement.  I had seen them in the supermarket but never tried them so we were all intrigued to find out more.

The bottles come in three yummy flavours Vanilla, chocolate and banana.

Here is a run down on what I found out about the milkshakes;

  • They contain less than 5% sugar
  • They are gluten free
  • The bottles are recyclable 
  • Suitable for vegetarians
  • No preservatives, artificial flavours or colours are used
  • These milkshakes contain natural flavours
  • A great source of calcium with British semi-skimmed milk

With all three flavours the milkshakes contain real ingredients, the vanilla has vanilla beans in it, the banana has real banana pulp and the chocolate steers clear of cocoa powder instead using actual chocolate sourced from Belgium, and they all taste creamy and delicious.
Each of the bottles of creamy milkshakes are 330 mls, and at  on average 270 calories for my active children I feel this is a good afternoon treat before their sporty clubs after school. 
Looking at the overall product it is  a good source of calcium and a natural drink, with each bottle having around 270 calories, and also with 3.6 g protein and 2.4 g fat in each 330 mls, I was happy for my girls to enjoy a milkshake for an after school drink as a treat.
These were a big hit with us all, even  Mr MFT was impressed and he doesn’t usually like the taste of bottled milkshakes as they usually have a really artificial taste.

Here is what my daughters thought of the three flavours;

Top Banana  : Both girls thought this deserved second place “Best banana milkshake I have tasted”  “creamy and yum”

Chocolush : “Taste’s like actual chocolate” “So yummy”

Vanillalicious :  Both girls thought this was their favourite, “so yummy and with vanilla dots inside” “Tastes like Custard!”

As well as the bottles of milkshakes they also come in these lunch box friendly sized 200 ml cartons.

Each one has on average 140 calories and fit into lunch boxes a treat.  The all use the same natural ingredients with a creamy delicious taste.

A big hit with my girls, the only down side was which flavour to choose.
They come with an individual straw which wasn’t fiddly like some can be, and being a smallish size they fit into the fridge really well.

Cost wise they are £1 each at the moment for the bottles  (in Tesco and Waitrose) – £1.29 usually, and for the cartons they are £1.89 for three.

I will most certainly be buying more of these milkshakes I found the cartons a huge hit as they can be popped into lunch boxes for school or for after school clubs and my  kids just love the taste, so they will be begging me for some more in the next grocery shop.
