Carrot Cake Shakeology

I know a liquid carrot cake doesn’t exactly sound appealing but trust me.. it’s creamy and delicious!!  The cinnamon masks the flavor of the carrots and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this.  Will definitely be making again!

Strawberry Detox Shakeology

So, I have a bag of the vegan tropical shakeology, and why I don’t like it as much as regular strawberry, I’m looking for recipes that make it better.  This one is amazing and now I know what I can drink while drinking the vegan strawberry.  I found the recipe on Beachbody’s website but wanted to save it here as well.

  • 12-14 oz water
  • 1 scoop strawberry shakeology (I used tropical strawberry which is vegan)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger (I use freeze dried… pictured below)
  • 1 cup watermelon
  • ice cubes (I use 5-6 ice cubes but it varies depending on how thick you want it)


  1. Add water, shakeology, lemon, ginger, watermelon and ice cube to your blender
  2. Blend until it’s smooth!

A word on ginger:  So, I don’t buy fresh ginger anymore, I like to use it but ALWAYS lose the root and spend too much time trying to find it or forgetting I have it.  It also goes bad pretty quickly, probably because I do not know how to store it properly.  I found this at my local grocery store and love it!  You measure and use it just like fresh ginger but you can keep it in your cupboard!

Greenberry Blueberry Shakeology

I LOVE greenberry, it’s fruity flavored and so refreshing. Surprisingly this is the one my daughter loves as well.  This recipe isn’t rocket science, it’s super easy and in being so it is a favorite.  I keep the freezer stocked with frozen fruit for this reason.

Why did I switch to Shakeology?

Probably my number 1 reason was it’s the cleanest shake I found for the price.  With a monthly price tag of $130 it may seem crazy that I think that’s a good deal but seriously some shakes are more expensive if you add in all the other pills or whatever they want you to also take with it.  Plus if you become a discount coach, you get 25% off!  The other shake I was drinking has maltodrexin in it (seriously, do a little research on this and it’ll freak you out!) and I really wanted something that I could eat every day (I really enjoy drinking shakes!) and not be able to worry about chemicals/side effects.
Shakeology is more than just a meal replacement or a protein shake.  Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides you with the best nutrition in your day.  It can be used as a meal replacement or in addition to your meals to ensure you’re getting essential nutrients.  Due to the vitamins loaded in it I no longer take a multivitamin every day.

I started using shakeology in January of 2015 as my afternoon snack.  I chose the  afternoon time frame because that’s when I’m feeling sluggish and have the most cravings.  Shakeology is convenient, fills me up, curbs my cravings, keeps things flowing and is easy to make and so versatile so I never get bored with 1 flavor!  I prefer mine blended with fruit, coffee or peanut butter.  Check out my recipe page for my favorites!

So, what’s in it?!

There are over 70 high quality ingredients in just 1 glass! You can actually read and understand the ingredients on the back, which is almost impossible to find in any other shake on the market!

It’s not certified gluten-free but it’s made with gluten-free ingredients.  It is not certified because it is manufactured in a facility that processes other known allergies (soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat) so you should consult your doctor before drinking.  Shakeology does use stevia to sweeten it.

What flavor do I recommend?

Shakeology comes in Chocolate, Vegan Chocolate, Strawberry, Vegan Strawberry, Greenberry and Vanilla.  I personally love Vegan Chocolate and Greenberry (which is fruity flavored to me).  Vanilla is a good base and kind of take whatever flavor you add to it, in my opinion.

You can sample all 6 flavors for $29.95! This way you don’t have to commit to one 30 day supply of 1 flavor and it gives you a week to see what shakeology can do for you! If you’re interested in checking out the sample pack CLICK HERE. or click on the banner below.
