I’ve been hearing nonstop about the Shakeology meal replacement shake. It falls under the BeachBody line of products, which I’m already a big fan of. The only thing that held me back from running out and buying this shake was the price (which you can read about more below). I finally bit the bullet and decided to try it out. Here’s my review.
The Shakeology shake comes in at a whopping $150 for a one-month supply on Amazon. That’s about $5 per shake (or per meal). Yes, that more or less costs the same as a latte from Starbucks, but that’s still pretty pricey when it comes to a meal replacement shake. Granted, this is an incredibly high quality shake, so you are getting bang for your buck. But it’s a lot of bucks, so be prepared to feel the pinch.
Shakeology comes in four flavors: Chocolate, Greenberry, Chocolate Vegan, and Tropical Strawberry. I decided to try out Shakeology’s chocolate shake (since I’ve heard terrible things about Greenberry flavor — seriously, avoid it at all costs). I have to say I really enjoyed this shake. It tasted just like chocolate. I mean super chocolately (and lucky for me I’m into that). Granted, I mixed it with a little skim milk in order to help with the consistency, so that may have affected the taste. But it was still really good.
APPETITE BLOCKER: A
Beachbody Shakeology shake is so thick that it will literally keep you full for hours. It doesn’t hurt that it has 17 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber too. Although it may take you forever to drink this whole shake down. It’s that thick, but it’s definitely worth it. Because along with feeling full, it also gives you a lot of energy too.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: A+
Every single fruit, vegetable, vitamin, and mineral you can think of is jammed into a Shakeology shake. It’s got pomegranate, wheat grass, goji berries, green tea, 100% of your daily value for Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, and Vitamin B12 (just to name a few out of the 75+ ingredients). So if you’re wondering where all your money went buying this shake, it went into the nutrients. That scores an A+ for me.
Overall, Shakeology is a great shake, but just be prepared for the sticker shock.
