Want to geek out with me about some healthy stuff?

Common Misconception: Shakeology is overpriced and a bag of protein powder. 😏
That price and the raving fans are there for a REASON! You are getting 5 DIFFERENT HEALTHY FORMULAS!


My story, the first week I didn't like Shakeology! Yep, that's because It took me a few days to learn the consistency I liked, the add in flavors I liked and once I figured out that I liked 12 oz whole milk, 1 heaping tsp of peanut butter, 1 banana and 1 cup ice. I was hooked. Now 5 years later, my recipe is totally different because over the years, I've want it to be as healthy for me as possible. My current recipe: 10 oz water, 1/2 cup ice, handful of spinach (about 2 cups, 1 level tsp of peanut butter or coconut oil. And I still love it, and I drink it almost daily (I still have room for improvement on drinking it on the weekends)



So let's dive into the 5 Different Formulas that are in Shakeology!
  1. Clean Protein Blend (2 options: Vegan or Whey)
  2. Superfruits & Antioxidants Blend
  3. Supergreens & Phytonutrients Blend
  4. Adaptogen Blend --helps combat stress in our body!
  5. Digestion support
