    Hey Buddies!
    I am hoping someone out there can remember when WW first made the scene. Way back in 1970 or so.
    They had this recipe for a WW milkshake. It was made with powdered milk, flavorings, sweet n low, water, and ice cubes. It was done in a blender. It wasn't all that wonderful, but I really liked it. I just can't find any recipe for the measurements and I am not adventureous enough to try on my own to guess at them. If you have any ideas of how I could get the recipe or even where I can look, I would be truly grateful.

    Oh my....I remember those. I think it used 1 cup of skim milk, 6 or 8 ice cubes and a chopped up apple. Put it all in the blender with sweetener to taste and enjoy. I used to use different extracts too.

    Remember the muffins made of 1 slice of ripped up bread, mixed with an egg, milk and baked in muffin cups? So glad they've changed the recipes. LOL I used to think they were wonderful and you could eat all 6 of them. LOL

    I don't remember this recipe, but I remember those days...

    If you want a thicker version of the above recipes, you can use 1/3 c. powdered milk and water / ice cubes to taste (1/3 c. powdered milk makes 1 c. skim milk). The above banana recipe counted as 1 milk and 1 fruit. (It still does, against your dairy and fruit/veg. servings.) Using powdered milk instead of skim was a standard way of using milk with less (or no) liquid in cooking, shakes (now called smoothies), etc.

    Oh, and tomato juice counted as a fruit. So a full serving of the WW "ketchup" was a fruit, not a vegetable!! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Basic Malted

    sugar substitute to taste
    4 ice cubes

    Black Cherry Malted
    1/4 cup nofat dry milk
    2/3 cup non-claoric black cherry soda
    2 - 3 ice cubes

    Strawberry Malted
    1 cup skim milk
    4 strawberries (if using forzen - sugar free)
    sugar substitute
    2 to 3 ice cubes

    I remember them being very tasty and very filling.

    Thank you so much. I knew there had to be someone else who remembered the early days. Oh yeah ! Fish 5 times a week, liver once a week, no fats at all...............and don't forget the Knnox gelatin for every dessert recipe ( or at least it seemed that way) Those were the days............... Thanks again. [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]
