Shakeology: A Healthy Alternative To Milkshakes




Awhile ago, a friend of mine asked me to try Shakeology for myself to see if I liked it. I'd never heard of it before and she's a personal trainer who also focuses on healthy eating so she was super excited to let me try it - and I was equally as excited to be the one trying it. She sent me the vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate, and since strawberry is normally my go-to at fast food restaurants, I figured I'd try it first.

So I poured the powder, one cup of milk, some ice, and a banana for good measure into the blender and thirty seconds later got this beautiful smoothie!

I will say...it's not quite as good as an ice cream filled shake from Zaxby's (yum), but the energy it seemed to give me and the fact that I definitely didn't feel sluggish and ready for a nap after I drank it made it so much better as a whole. I'm planning on making all that I have for the next week or so and drinking them for breakfast on my way out of the house everyday. Mason jars fit perfectly in my car cup-holder and it's enough to have something in my stomach before I work out. :)

Not only does it taste pretty good, but it also has a ton of extra benefits that make it worth trying out.

It has more than 70 super-nutritious ingredients.

  • Proteins, Vitamins, and Minerals: to help reduce hunger and food cravings.
  • Antioxidants and Phytonutrients: to help detoxify and protect the body against free radical damage.
  • Adaptogen Herbs: to help increase energy and combat stress.
  • Prebiotics, Probiotics, Fiber, and Digestive Enzymes: to aid digestion and promote regularity.

It can be (and is mostly) used to aid in weight loss but doesn't have to be. It's not just a meal replacement, it's also a nutrition shake to help you get everything your body needs. It has even been clinically proven to lower cholesterol, as an added benefit.

And if you're vegan, no worries! They have vegan options as well: Tropical Strawberry & Chocolate

Happy Tuesday, everyone! :)

    1. I know, me too! I absolutely thought it was going to have more of a protein shake taste.

  3. I just ordered the 21 Day Fix by Shakeology after trying the Chocolate shake last weekend... I am so hooked! They are delicious and I totally agree with you - I drank one before an intense workout and it made me feel so good!

    1. Yes! All the yes to this comment. They're good anyway but they're even better when used with a workout regimen.

  4. Wait, I need this. I've never heard of Shakeology, but now I must try it and have it in my life! Especially if it's similar to ice cream but nutritious and filling me full of good-for-you things? Sign me up. Thanks for sharing!

  5. My mom loves these shakes - I've always been hesitant to try becuase I hate protein powder; for being a "shake" they're awfully dry. BLECH. But with all those benefits? I might have to try it out!

    1. I'm exactly the same. I'm normally not a huge fan of any protein shakes for the same reason, but these are so much better than most!
