My experience

I'll be honest, it took me years to give in and try shakeology. I finally ordered some, but it just remained on the shelf in our pantry. Finally, my husband started drinking it. After about six weeks, he had lost 12 lbs. (Seriously.) It got my attention. He was a meal-skipper and just by adding in shakeology, he was finally getting the nutrition his body needed, so in turn it started releasing excess weight.

I started drinking shakeology and I'll be honest, I didn't love it. In fact, I'd say it took at least 6 tries to really dial in my shake-style. I like thick and smoothie-like. It's helped my cravings immensely and I love it. I feel off when I don't drink it. When I'm craving chocolate, I have a shake. And when I'm busy and barely have time to make a salad, my shake is right there. I've been drinking it daily for more than two years and I'll be honest, I think I'm in the best shape of my life, I'm rarely sick and I don't take vitamins anymore. (Yep.)

A good place to start when yo first try it, is like this. (But don't worry, your shakeology will come with some good recipes. Don't feel like adding anything? Don't. It's fine with water, too.)

Foundational Shakeology Recipe
  1. About 1 cup of ice (more or less)
  2. About 1 - 1/2 cups of water
  3. 1 tsp of natural PB
  4. 1 scoop of chocolate shakeology
Mix and go!

Today, I add in a teaspoon or two of coconut oil (amazing for you skin!), some chia seeds and 1 cup of greens like spinach, kale or swiss chard. (Another way to get more veggies in.) I also love a drop of peppermint oil every now and then.

What is shakeology?

What's In Shakeology | Click here

A nutrient dense, superfood-packed drink that's more than a protein shake. It's full of whole-food nutrition. It's full of phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics. Sure, it's for weight-loss but more importantly it's viable for the long run... as in everyday. Because it's all of the good stuff. (Read more at right.)

What's a superfood?

It's a food that's low in calories, high in nutrients that goes beyond meeting basic nutritional needs. Instead, superfoods have high concentrations of multiple nutrients that work together to support the immune system and help fight aging.

How does Shakeology compare to other shakes?

While other shakes on the market contain a few of the key nutrient groups, Shakeology is the one that provides them all in one shake. See the ingredient lists for yourself below.

How much does it cost?

About $4.33 a day. (If you're Team Member of Beachbody, you get 10% off - so it's about $3.87 a day. Coaches get it for 25% off.)

What if I don't like it?

I love this about shakeology. If you don't like it - you send it back. EVEN if the bag is empty and you get a 100% refund. (As long as we send it back in 30-days from purchase.) We stand behind the product, 100%.

What are the flavors?

Shakeology comes in seven different flavors - either a 30-day bag  or a box of 24 single-serve packets. I love strawberry and vanilla. Chocolate is the husband's favorite.
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Strawberry
  • Cafe Latte
  • Greenbery (think, "tangy vanilla")
  • Tropical Strawberry Vegan
  • Chocolate Vegan
  • Chocolate / Vanilla / Strawberry combo box [Box of 24 single-serve packets, 8 of each flavor]
  • Chocolate / Vanilla combo box [Box of 24 single-serve packets, 12 of each flavor]
  • Chocolate / Greenbery Combo Box [ Box of 24 single-serve packets, 12 of each flavor]
  • Tropical Strawberry Vegan / Chocolate Vegan Combo Box [ Box of 24 single-serve packets, 12 of each flavor]
  • Chocolate / Vanilla / Cafe Latte combo box [Box of 24-single-serve packets, 8 of each flavor]

What are the secrets to making shakeology?

I use an a nutri bullet, like this. It takes two seconds to assemble and is less to wash and rinse than a blender. I add ice, a scoop of shakeology and either a bit of fruit or yogurt. Mix for about 45 seconds and then drink!

Tip: I strongly suggest ice when drinking shakeology.
