Shakes Up the Ying-Yang - Shakeology Recipe Swap

title.jpg

It's a (belated) #FoodieFriday post! Which means I gotta share something delicious and nutritious. So why not stay on the Shakeology train? Haha

A couple posts ago, I told you all about Shakeology and why I'm obsessed with it in "What is Shakeology? AND How is it different?". So, it only seems appropriate that I would do a Shakeology recipe share!

In that last post I told you all about the health benefits of shakeology and why it is beneficial to you from a health standpoint, and worth the cost you pay (which let's be real, is only the price of a latte! Prioritize!)

Today, I'm going to get into the fun part, and my favorite thing about Shakeology - the taste!

Shakeology comes in 4 different flavors - Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and Greenberry! Though I definitely have my personal preferences, I've tried them all and they're ALL really tasty on their own with just some water/milk and ice!

But today, I want to share with you how we can get a little crazy with our Shakeology recipes, and have a whole lot of fun!

So let's go...flavor by flavor!

Probably my first Shakeology selfie for my challenge group! Enjoying the Supa Tropical!

Greenberry!

The absolute first Shakeology flavor I tried!! I don't know what inspired me. Maybe I just wanted to get a little crazy! Or probably because it was the flavor my coach was drinking when I signed up!

It's delicious! It tastes like a green tea frappucino in my opinion! Nom!

Greenberry definitely isn't for everyone, but I definitely have some AWESOME recipes that you should try!
 

Greenberry Coffee Kickstart

  • 1C of drip Coffee (at whatever strength you desire)
  • 1/2 C of nut milk (I like Almond and coconut milk)
  • Handful of chopped spinach (You can use other greens if you wish, but I like spinach because it's softer and it blends well)
  • 1 scoop of Greenberry Shakeology
  • 1 tsp of PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 7-8 large ice cubes
  • Blend and Enjoy!

Supa Tropical! ShakeO

  • 1C of almond/coconut blend
  • 1C of water
  • 1C of frozen mixed fruit (mine contained mangos, strawberries, pineapple and grapes)
  • 1 scoop of Greenberry Shakeology
FAVORITE! Or at least one of them! This CHAI TEA LATTE SHAKEOLOGY is a winner

Vanilla!
Vanilla is an awesome shakeology flavor to start with! It's super versatile and really yummy! I have a ton of fun jazzing it up!

Here are some of my Vanilla absolute favorites!

**For a lot of these I make tea or some other hot drink. What I will usually do is I will heat the water and let the tea steep and then cool make down during the time that I'm working out! That way the tea is nice and strong and has cooled before I mix it into my Shakeology!**

  • 12 oz of STRONG Pumpkin Spice tea

CHOCOLATE!

Oh chocolate chocolate chocolate....yummmmmmmmm

I'm telling you right now, I might be a little bit biased on this one. I'm a chocolate girl. I spend most of my time swapping between chocolate and vanilla because I love the versatility. But in my heart, I'll always be a chocolate lover. And these recipes are SUCH amazing treatsI legitimately feel like I'm cheating on my nutrition when I have one! They're THAT GOOD!
