I just got this in the email last night from another medifast member. Maybe you can find something below:.

MF Cinnabun.

Dry ingredients:.

1 pkg Medifast vanilla shake or vanilla pudding.

1/2 t cinnamon.

1/2 t baking powder.

1 pkg Splenda (I actually use Stevia, personally).

1 t flax meal.

Wet ingredients:.

2 T Egg Beaters.

1 T ICBINB fat-free spread.

Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl (the bottom diameter of this bowl will be the size of your finished cinnamon bun). Add in the wet ingredients until well-mixed, then press the whole mixture down into the bottom of the bowl, scraping the excess off the sides. (Here is where I lick the spoon - yum).

Microwave for one minute on high (if the middle is still a little undercooked at this point it is OK). Use a knife to pull the bun away from the sides of the bowl, and invert onto a microwave-safe plate. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of Walden Farms marshmallow dip over the bun like frosting, and microwave for one more minute..

I have also made this recipe substituting in apple cinnamon oatmeal - you may need to adjust the amount of water if you change the Medifast base ingredient, but it still turns out OK..

The Cinnabon recipe is a yummy one. I didn't have the WF topping so I mixed a laughing cow wedge with a slenda packet and a few drops of DaVinci SF vanilla syrup and "frosted" my cinnabun.......... It was soooo good..

Add a splash of pumpkin pie spice or some coffee chrystals.

I like to make the pudding as a shake. I use diet root beer instead of water, add 6 ice cubes and blend. It tastes just like a root beer float. Just to tell you, when I make the rootbeer float I end up adding more than the 1/4 cup the pudding calls for. If not, it is too thick. I just kind of add more as I'm blending until I get a nice consistancy.

For the best root beer float I've found yet mix up a straight vanilla pudding with plain old water in your magic bullet. Freeze it for 30 minutes or so then pour the root beer over it. YUMMO!.

I add the packet, a cup of ice, and about 4oz water and blend. Then I slowly add either diet Sunkist (for a dreamsicle taste), or diet root beer. It's really filling because I'm drinking so much, and I love the icy texture and great taste. This weekend I tried cherry diet Pepsi, that was good too..

I add a little almond extract and tabelspoon of fat free cool whip and mix it up then freeze it. I love almond. Makes it taste like cake..

It is a hot pudding/custard.

1 pack pudding (vanilla or chocolate are my preference).

1/2 tsp vanilla extract or any flavor.

1 egg white.

1/2 cup water.

1 splenda.

Mix together well (magic bullet or blender), pour into a large microwavable bowl. Microwave on 70% power for 90 seconds (watching carefully), stir gently. Micro again on 70% power for 1 min. It will fluff up and flow over if you are not careful..

Ok LOVED the warm custard idea!! I didn't have any vanilla extract but used some nutmeg and cinnamon or apple pie spice. DeLISH!.

I add 1 Tbl of dry PB2 to the vanilla pudding.....tastes like the inside of a butterfinger bar. I've also made my own Peanut Butter soft serve by adding a cup of crushed ice and 6 Tbl water to the dry pudding mix and Tbl of dry PB2. I blend it in my Ninja until it's smooth and creamy..

I want to make sure that this doesn't get missed by any vanilla pudding haters out there!!! This is an AMAZING "key lime pie" recipe and here's my adaptation (based on what I had in my fridge and the room in my magic bullet small cup!):.

Lemon/Lime Pudding:.

1 pack Medifast vanilla pudding.

1 wedge laughing cow cheese.

1/2 cup cold water.

4-5 ice cubes.

1 tbsp lime juice (optional).

1-2 tsp lemon zest (I didn't have any fresh limes).

Blend and eat right away! It was a flavour explosion. My tastebuds were so grateful after 3 months of chocolate pudding nearly every night...still love the chocolate but man, this was good!.

Key Lime Pie.

1 van. pudding, 1 TBSP FF cream cheese, splenda to taste, 1/2 c water, 8-9 ice cubes and 1/4 of 1 lime. At first I just squeezed the juice from 1/4 lime, but that didn't do much so I put in about 1/4 tsp or so of lime zest and that did the trick.

Another Key Lime Pie.

I did the van pudding, 1/2 c water, 9 ice cubes, lime zest and a squeeze of lime juice and....1 tsp ff vanilla yogurt and a little crystal light lemonade for flavor- very tangy and refreshing.

Into blender cup add- 1/2 very cold water, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1 packet splenda, 1oz. ff cream cheese, 1 cup ice and 1 Medifast vanilla pudding. In this order..

Blend then blend again til all ice is chopped and smooth.

This tastes just like soft serve ice cream! Unbelievable and huge portion too!.

I recently found a recipe on here that used instant coffee (about 1Tbsp), 1 packet of vanilla pudding, 1 packet of splenda and 8 oz of watershake shake shake together and you have an AMAZING drink! Enjoy over ice!.

Also like to make "truffles" with the vanilla pudding and a TBSP of peanut butter (if my daily limits allow) and just enough water to make a really thick paste, roll into balls and freeze..YUM..

IN addition to the cheesecake-flavored SF/FF pudding mix, the butterscotch-flavored tastes great in the vanilla too!~..

I do a few different things...

1. add cinnamon powder (a good strong shake) helps a lot and is quick.

(costs you a condiment).

2. add peanut butter or PB2 (dried peanut butter powder) for Snickerdoodle flavor.

(costs you a condiment for PB2 or a snack for peanut butter depending on how much you use).

3. beat an egg white and then mix with the prepared pudding and microwave for a minute for vanilla custard.

(costs you a tiny bit of your lean 14 egg whites is lean for the day)..

Comment #2

I weigh half the powder of vanilla, and half the powder of choc. pudding (since this the flavor I really like)....1 1/2 cups of ice in the blender, diet creme soda. I also add loriann oil to it for taste, PB2, SF raspberry jelly, SF marshmellow dip or SF carmel syrup..

Good luck! It comes out like a frosty. This has been the only way I have been able to enjoy the vanilla pudding...

Comment #3

That Egg Custard recipe really depends on your microwave.

When I originally wrote down the time, I had a different micro..

Depends on wattage, as the one at home was prepared like in the first post and the one at my business is prepared like Shauna's..

Just experiment, also try different extracts! Coconut is awesome!..

Comment #4

Also, someone else copied the original BT recipe except the choc pudding doesn't make that great of a custard. =-).

TRY the banana pudding! It's AWESOME as a custard also...

Comment #5

I didn't know I copied your recipe BT.

I add egg white to make custard with regular pudding and so I added the egg white to Medifast pudding hoping to get a decent result and it worked...

Comment #6

Ack! Oh, no, Shauna, I didn't mean to say you copied my original recipe. I was talking about the 2nd poster's post and THEN, the way you prepare the custard, the same way I do at my business is because of my micro's wattage..

Does that makes sense?.

Any ways, I meant no insult to you. :-)..

Comment #7

YUM - I did the pumpkin pie spice in the vanilla pudding last night and froze it to just about hard...LOVED it! Now I"m thinkning I can get through the season and not feel 'deprived' of pumpkin flavored things AND can get the vanilla yogurt down..

Comment #8

Thanks everyone for all the great ideas! I'll have to give a few a try soon..

Comment #9

I mix my vanilla pudding with 1 TB of peanut butter and I LOVE it!..

Comment #10

**I hated any of the puddings until I tried this and it has become my evening dessert since it really does taste like soft serve ice cream and I'm sure you can tweak it to your liking but this is my version w/the simplest ingredients really really is delish and thank you to whoever thought of it.

Soft Serve Ice CreamInto blender cup add- 1/2 cup very cold water, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 packet splenda (1 tsp), 1oz. (or 1 tsp) fat free cream cheese, 1 cup ice and 1 Medifast vanilla or banana pudding. Put in blender In this exact order..

Blend then blend again til all ice is chopped and smooth.

This tastes just like soft serve ice cream! Unbelievable and huge portion too!..

Comment #11

Sam, I don't like to get too fancy, but if it hasn't been suggested already, I make mine in the morning and then stick it in the freezer for 30 minutes before I eat it. SO much better...

Comment #12


LOL... I was apologizing because I thought I insulted YOU! It just goes to show you that voice inflection and body language really help to convey the intent of a message. No offense taken and no offense intended...

Comment #13

Another tip: try it in a couple weeks, there are some things that taste AWFUL in the beginning but your palate changes, I HATED the cream of broccoli soup, now I cant get enough of it, and am rather mad at myself for not ordering more.. I rather like the vanilla pudding with sf chocolate sauce. Use it as your condiment. YUMMO! Good luck!..

Comment #14

Vanilla pudding is not my favorite, but tonight I tried something new. I've used cottage cheese with chocolate pudding and really enjoyed it... so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it with vanilla..

1/4 cup ice cold water.

1/4 cup small curd cottage cheese (1/6 of your lean).

1T SF Da Vinci Almond syrup.

Mix in blender until cottage cheese is liquid and frothy. Add vanilla pudding and mix again until thoroughly blended..

I couldn't decide if it tasted like whipped vanilla frosting or more like cheesecake. This definitely warrants ordering more vanilla puddings!..

Comment #15

Do you log all of these recipes/meals on line? I can't figure out how to deal with 3oz tuna in the afternoon + 4 oz Tapalia at dinner. The same for veggies. Doing a small salad in the afternoon and spinach at dinner. Yup! I'm new...

Comment #16

I found my quick fix today for the vanilla pudding, which I was not a fan of either. I added about 2 tsp of Walden Farms carmel dip. Oh my goodness. It was so good I had it twice today!..

Comment #17

For thanksgiving, add pumpkin pie spice. Then you can even warm it up a little in the microwave for a very decadent holiday desert...
