What is Shakeology ?
Shakeology is an all natural shake meant to be used as a meal replacement. According to its creators at Beachbody it is “The healthiest meal of the day.” They also like to refer to it as “Your daily dose of dense nutrition.” If you read the ingredient list you’ll understand why.
The uncooked, unprocessed whole food ingredients from around the world provide a wealth of superfood nutrition all in one shake.
- Improved digestion & regularity
- Reduced junk food cravings
- Increased energy
- Weight Loss
My husband and I have both experienced these benefits for ourselves over the past 5 years we’ve been using Shakeology. The first bullet point was one of those things that we wondered if there was a connection and when we looked it up confirmed that suspicion:) I believe Shakeology combined with whatever workout program we’re doing gets us in the best shape possible. Being serious about our nutrition is the key to reaching our fitness goals.
Shakeology comes in 7 different flavors including 2 Vegan options. You can order it by the bag (30 servings) or by the box (24 single serving packets). If you order by the box you can mix up your flavors and get 1, 2, or 3 different flavors in the same box. We currently get Chocolate and Greenberry packets on auto-ship every month. Since my husband and I both drink Shakeology I usually order an extra bag of chocolate to get us through the month.
- Cafe Latte
- Vegan Tropical Strawberry
- Vegan Chocolate
My Favorite Recipes
While all the flavors are pretty tasty with just ice and water, here are some of my favorite recipes. The new Cafe Latte flavor tastes just like iced coffee. Add milk to any recipe to make it creamier. This used to be the only way we drank Shakeology until we started the 21 Day Fix and didn’t want to give up a carb for milk. We were pleasantly surprised that it still tasted delicious!
- Chocolate Shakeology + 1/2 banana + 1tsp peanut butter + ice + water
- Greenberry Shakeology + 1/2 banana + 1/2 V8 Energy (or orange juice) + ice + water
- Vanilla Shakeology + 1 cup coffee + ice
- Vanilla Shakeology + 1/2 banana + 1/2 V8 Energy + 1 Scoop P90X Results & Recovery + ice + water
What does it cost?
A 30 Serving Bag or 24 Packet Box of Shakeology is $129.95. I know what you’re thinking, That is so expensive! But let’s break it down. Shakeology is meant to be a meal replacement. When you think about what you typically spend on a meal ($5-$10) it’s really not bad at all. Let’s do the math.
30 Serving Bag: $129.95/30= $4.33 per serving
Box of 24 Packets: $129.95/24= $5.41 per serving
If you’re looking for the most cost-effective choice I’d go with the resealable bag option. If you travel and want the convenience of portability then go with the individual packets. When I travel for work I bring along my Shakeology shaker and packets, add ice and water for a quick healthy breakfast.
