Summary:

super idea for convenience and I would certainly be very tempted to switch to the ready-mades if they brought out a Chocolate Mint version :-) looking at you Cambridge Weight Plan :-)

cambridge ready made shakesCambridge have 3 fabulous flavours on their ready-made shakes (tetras) which are fantastic solutions if you are on the go, you can easily to pop them into your handbag and they come with a straw :-) They are a little more expensive than the packet shakes on average £20-30p more (from my experience) but for anyone who finds making up shakes at work a bit awkward they are a perfect alternative, people look at me a bit funny when they see me shaking like mad and hear the noise generated by the mixing ball :-)

The three ready-made shake flavours offered on the plan are:

  • Chocolate velvet – 143 Calories
  • Strawberry Silk – 140 Calories
  • Banana Bliss – 141 Calories

I have heard mixed reviews on the ready-made versions and have included some opinions from other Cambridge dieters below but the only way is to give them a try yourself. I personally stick to the packet shakes as they fit with my lifestyle but I tried one of each and have to say they taste lovely but I found them very thick and they didn’t last as long as the packet ones I make up. I like my shake to last a bit longer :-) but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Chocolate Velvet.

Overall though a super idea for convenience and I would certainly be very tempted to switch to the ready-mades if they brought out a Chocolate Mint version – shout out to Cambridge Weight Plan :-)

What Cambridge Dieters Say:

“Love the chocolate velvet not keen on the other 2”

“I don’t like them as they’re quite thick”

“I think the normal packet shakes are nicer but I quite like the strawberry one”

“I love all 3, I think Banana bliss is my fav….for those that find them to thick, they can be emptied into a large glass, topped up with the extra water and you can also add crushed ice”

“Gorgeous, but if you are greedy like me J stick with the shakes you make yourself so u can put in more water”

“I love the pre made ones! Great for my work and college!! I top mine up with ice”

“Don’t like them. They are just about ok if you put them into a large glass and fill up with water and ice. They are too concentrated”

“That’s all I have, just the choc ones I luv them”

“I live on the chocolate velvet, 21 a week – minimum hassle and easy to take to work”

“One thing about tetras is they are very sweet. Takes a bit of getting used to”

“The choc and banana one are lovely especially in coffee, I don’t like the strawberry it has a funny after taste”

“I find them a bit too thick, but they are dead handy if you are out and about. I’m not keen on the chocolate one though”

“Great for convenience, I’ve tried the strawberry one. It’s thicker than normal and great for taking to work as this diet is a big secret!”

“I LOVE them! I have 3 chocolate tetras a day, I’ve even started adding hot water to my night time one to make hot chocolate”

“They are lush!! The choc one is fab made into hot chocolate”
