Beachbody Shakeology Review

Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake Review

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.


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.


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.

    I am trying to find the right shake. A friend just sent me a sample of Shakelogy. I mixed it with Almond milk because I need the added calcium. I found the chocolate way too sweet. I’ve used Isogenix in the past and loved the shakes but hated the cleanse and the snacks so I stopped.

    honestly i LOVE the greenberry flavor! it is certainly unique i’ll give it that, but just with most health shakes if you don’t like the base flavor mix it with something and you can make it taste like a milkshake. for instance if the greenberry flavor gets a little dull after a few days i mix it with fresh banana and it tastes amazing. so before buying what i recommend is going to the shakeology website and getting a sample box for $20 you get information about shakeology and sample packets of each flavor they offer. How awesome is that and if your serious about losing weight, gaining energy, or just getting healthier is there a better way to go than just trying all the flavors to find out which ones you like best instead of spending $150 for a 30 day supply of a flavor you may end up hating. i honestly love all of the flavors the only one that wouldn’t be my first choice is the vegan tropical strawberry, but it is still really good and the vegan flavors don’t taste any different from the regular flavors so if you can scrounge up the money i highly recommend giving it a try it’s worth it.

    I mixed the chocolate vegan flavor with water and ice using my Ninja and found it to be very chalky tasting. Also, when you start mixing this with other things like many people say to do it becomes even more expensive.

    Couple things wrong here… First off price, personally I get mine for about $100/month because I’m a coach (also when you sign people up you get commission so really I pay about $50/mo) and Greenberry is, in my experience, one of the most popular ones! It’s definitely my personal favorite but I’ve heard that from lots of other people too. I was just looking at this to see if maybe there was something comparable and maybe I was spending too much on shakes but based on the first 2 I read I’m obviously making the right decision with shakeology. The other shakes aren’t even close to the same quality, I’m very surprised to see this in the 3rd spot.

    The price is worth and but it’s also wrong.. it’s $130 for a bag when you order through beachbody and you can then sign as a discount coach for another 25% off. Making it $99.. that’s about $3.55 a shake.. put that in your grocery budget as that’s replacing an entire meal. That’s a great value considering you get 70 superfoods in one swoop. I’ll drink shakeology for the rest of my life.. it’s not even about weight loss but good nutrition and giving your body the right fuel it needs

      The shake costs $130 + $2 shipping (autoship) = $132. If you’re a coach you get a 25% discount for a cost of $99. But, according to their website, there’s a monthly fee of $16 for the Coach Online Office making the actual cost $115 (or more if your state charges sales tax on food items). That assumes you have no sales as a coach. Still good in that people can get a discount as a coach even if they don’t want to sell it. I want it for me and my hubby but $230 month is practically a car payment. I know the nutrition is amazing in shakeology but it’s out of our price range and out of a lot of people’s price range I bet. Too bad shakeology can’t make it more accessible to people :(

    It’s been a week for me so far it’s been fantastic. I use almond milk. Frozen berries & frozen bananas Sometimes the powdered peanut butter If you prepare your shake right you’ll love it. I do all vegan Tried strawberry vegan with frozen fruit almond milk Way better than an ice cream shake. No love berries so it’s perfect for me. The shake really pretty much replace my breakfast & lunch I use my Ninga I add ice at times So for me it’s a Godsend! Way cheaper if you go through a coach. She gets you the best price & is on hand for q&a Also she puts us in a support group To me it’s well worth the price. I have not had this much energy in years!

    I am a Beachbody coach and I drink Shakeology faithfully and love it. Please don’t purchase on Amazon – too expensive – purchase from a coach. It is $129 at the Beachbody website, plus shipping. If you get the home direct where they auto ship each month, shipping is free. If you sign up to be a coach, you get 25% off (It comes to about $4 per day). It is actually not thick, it depends on what you put in it. I put mine in a Shaker Cup with ice for a quick meal on the run or blend with frozen berries or a ripe banana. It’s as thick or thin as you want it to be. But it is so full of nutrients – It’s my daily dose of dense nutrition!

    Diet plans make you lose weight fast
    Fruit and vegetables are inexpensive, healthy and delicious, but large numbers of Kiwi kids simply don’t eat an adequate amount of them forever health. The diet plan we learn as youngsters are more likely to turn into life-long pattern, if our youngsters eat poorly they may be prone to become adults with unhealthy diets.Picky eaters not only suffer nutritionally, as they age they become increasingly socially disadvantaged. The inability to eat in others’s homes or perhaps in ethnic restaurants can be a problem in the event the crew can be a Thai buffet, your top client invites you to lunch at a Japanese restaurant, or your flatmate who cooks every second night is a vegan. use unhealthy dietary practices for weight control.

    I am 57 year old mother of four and one grandson. My husband and I both love our chocolate Shakeology. I have been drinking it for the last five years. Previous to drinking Shakeology the doctors wanted to put me on blood pressure and cholesterol meds. I chose shakeology instead and love it.

    the greenberry isn’t that bad. I drink it as a shake blended with orange juice and water, blueberries and a banana. It is really good that way. :)

    I wish you would list the vitamins/protein and calories for all of these drinks. Without this is very much a subjective comparison.

    I agree withh your shakeology review. It is an incredible meal replacement shake. The price is painful as you said. I greatly enjoy it so I will keep purchasing it. It really makes you feel good. It now comes in strawberry as well. They reformulated the green berry and I have heard good (better) things. I get the chocolate/vanilla/strawberry combo box. Thank you for your reviews.

    I cannot believe you enojoyed this shake. It was horrible. Maybe maybe.. if you mix it with the recipes it would be better. I had it with 1% milk and it truly tasted horrible.

      Thanks for the comment, John. Shakeology isn’t for everyone. It definitely is a super thick shake and some people can’t get past it. For me, I like it. It’s just really expensive. :)

Only a tiny bit of ice. I sometimes add tropical fruit. It’s as thick as you want it to be, and I prefer thinner. But it is so full of nutrients – like nature in a glass!

      Don’t forget the $16 a month to be a coach so that’s really $113 a month. Do you get free shipping?

      I don’t know why you’re saying don’t buy it on Amazon, Beachbody is the one who is selling it on Amazon!! Not everyone wants to pay to be a coach and have to have it auto shipped…Amazon is great for those who don’t and BB is still getting their $ so no worries

    I’ve been using Shakeology just about every day for 4 years now. Can’t remember the last time I was sick. Its also made a big difference in my workout results.
