A huge shout out to my cousin-in-law (is that a real term?) for getting me on the bandwagon! I kept referring to her as my sister-in-law to SL when I was telling him how she sent me a Shakeology sample that I was dying to try. After calling her my SIL more than a couple times I realized I would never actually have a SIL. SL is an only child and my sister is totally into dudes so the best I can hope for is a BIL.
But seriously, Lori, and all of my CILs are are amazing and are all like SILs and BILs to me!
I digress…on to Shakeology.
I opted to try the chocolate flavor because it gives me an excuse to have chocolate for breakfast (I choose right). My sample, one serving packet came with a 30-day recipe guide as well as a great info book on Shakeology. All of these recipes look amazing but I opted for my own version.
My Morning Shake
- 1 packet chocolate Shakeology
- 1 banana
- 1 cup Silk Almond Coconut Blend
- A handful of ice
I blended it all up and its was AMAZING!! (I should have added a handful of spinach…oops)
I’ve tried a few other protein powders in smoothies and shakes but this one topped them all. It wasn’t chalky or flavorless at all. I actually enjoyed drinking every last drop of my shake. Good thing SL had this beer stein to fit the whole shake in! Totally normal to drink protein shakes out of a beer stein, right?!
The only down side to this, and many other protein powers, is the price. A 30-serving bag is $130 which breaks down to just over $4 a serving. This is a little high in terms of my personal breakfasts but it might be worth it 🙂
Is anyone else on the Shakeology bandwagon?
