Product Review: Shakeology

My fantastic sponsor Allyson from Beachbody sent me some samples of their products for me to review and try. I was given multiple items, a review for one of them will be coming later, and today I will be reviewing the Shakeology products they offer.

I was sent samples of: Chocolate Vegan, Tropical Strawberry, Chocolate, and Greenberry. I was actually very impressed at how well the powder dissolved. In the past I have had problems with powders not dissolving and being left with clumps of powder, and a fairly tasteless drink. I will admit that Tropical Strawberry was not my favorite. It had a slight chalky aftertaste.

Shakeology can help you:
  • Lose weight

  • Reduce cravings

  • Increase energy and stamina

  • Promote healthy digestion and regularity
How Shakeology works
  • Ingredients derived from whole-food sources deliver the daily vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs to curb cravings, allowing it to shed stored fat.

  • More than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.

  • Fiber, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes help your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently and promote better absorption of nutrients.*
What’s in Shakeology
  • Protein and essential amino acids help build muscles and reduce food cravings.
  • Prebiotics and digestive enzymes aid in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption.
  • Antioxidants and phytonutrients help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases.
  • A daily dose of vitamins and minerals provides your body what it needs to function for optimal health.

The drinks in general were smooth and great tasting. I was full for a good few hours after drinking them. You can use them before or after a workout. You can make them into smoothies, or just dissolve them with water.

Here is an example of a recipe I found online that you can easily do with the shake:

1 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup frozen berry medley
1 scoop Tropical Strawberry Shakeology
1/2 banana

Place it in a blender, blend until smooth, pour in a cup and go!
