We have 2 new additions to the Vegan Shakeology Family.
If you follow me, my blog, or watch any Facebook live video I do then you know I love my Shakeology, especially my Vegan Chocolate Shakeology. I am so passionate about it because I love the way that it makes me feel and I know the profound impact it has had on my health and fitness over the years. I found Shakeology when I was at a health and fitness crossroads in my life. I was trying to no avail to lose weight. I was at my wit’s end and I was done marching up the hill to the gym twice a day and drinking gnarly smoothies that I had found the recipes for on the internet. I wanted to be healthy, to feel good and look good but I did not know how to do it. Then, onto my Facebook feed came my Coach Liz. She had posted a transformation photo where she looked amazing, she had managed to do what I could not, drop the weight and keep it off. This is why I reached out to her. If there is one thing that I had learned from my years in AA it was to find someone who had what I wanted and do what they did to get it. I asked if she would help me and she agreed, I started P90X but I did not start Shakeology and because of this I did not get the results she had because I was not willing to do what she did to get them. I was not willing to go all the way in. One day I hit my breaking point and told her I wanted Shakeology and I got it and signed up as a Coach. I knew I needed to play full-out if I ever wanted to reach my goals and what better way than to become a coach? That’s the ultimate accountability! I have been drinking it ever since and it is the cornerstone of my nutrition. Over the years I have switched from the regular Chocolate to the Vegan Chocolate but I have and will always drink it. I was forced to watch with jealousy when they unveiled the Vanilla Flavor a few years ago then again when they introduced the Cafe Latte. The only options for us Vegan Shakeology drinkers remained Tropical and Chocolate. I just kept hoping with every product announcement that it would be Vegan Vanilla but they kept me waiting but I understood that Beachbody has high standards and I’d rather wait than have a lesser version of my favorite superfood elixir. That is until this last Super Saturday when they announced that we would not only be getting Vegan Vanilla Shakeology but also Vegan Cafe Latte Shakeology! This is awesome, especially for a girl who needs her variety when it comes to her superfoods.
Here is what the developers of Shakeology have to say about the new Vegan Cafe Latte and Vegan Vanilla Shakeology flavors because who could say it better than they could?
Vegan Cafe Latte Shakeology:
“Everyone’s heard of the coffee bean, but how many are aware that the red, fleshy fruit that surrounds it is actually a powerful superfood? Café Latte Vegan Shakeology includes Whole Coffee Fruit, an incredible superfood, and has a rich, aromatic café latte flavor. Using the whole fruit helps lowers the carbon footprint while delivering the delightful refreshment reminiscent of a cup of joe. It has all the exotic superfood ingredients that you’ve come to expect from Shakeology to deliver Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition®. Café Latte Vegan Shakeology is nutrition simplified and dairy-free. It can help to support healthy weight loss and energy, reduce cravings, and support digestion and regularity.”
Vegan Vanilla Shakeology:
“Deep inside the lush jungles of Madagascar–an island off the southeastern coast of Africa–Malagasy farmers meticulously hand-pollinate delicate vanilla orchids and harvest the beans. Over the course of several months, the beans are blanched, seated, sun-dried, and conditioned, which releases their robust flavors. The result is an untainted, flavorful, and ethically sourced vanilla flavor that meets Shakeology’s high standards. Rich and creamy Vanilla Vegan Shakeology goes wonderfully with citrus, coffee, maple, nut butters, and coconut flavors. Shakeology is nutrition simplified, and with Vanilla Vegan, you get a dairy-free daily dose of dense nutrition. It can help to support healthy weight loss and energy, reduce cravings, and support digestion and regularity.”
That would be great if that was it… but it’s not!
There are a couple of things that I think need to be discussed when we talk about Shakeology. A) Shakeology is not a protein drink, it is a dense superfood nutrition shake. There is so much amazingness packed into Shakeology that it is doing a huge disservice to call it a protein drink. The reason that we feel so good when we drink Shakeology is because it is packed with a wealth of globally sourced superfoods and key ingredients that deliver proteins, fiber, and superfoods with antioxidant properties, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, adaptogens, prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes and it tastes amazing. B) The formulators of Shakeology are always looking to improve the formula. It is not a stagnant product. They are always looking at the quality of the ingredients, how they are processed and where they come from as you can see from the care taken in sourcing the vanilla for the Vegan and regular Vanilla Shakeology flavors. They are also always looking at adding additional benefits to the formula through additional superfoods. It is awesome to have a healthy superfood shake that is always improving!
Welcome Matcha and Chaga!
I love me some Matcha and I am pumped that it has been added to Shakeology! Matcha is a powerful antioxidant that works to fight free radicals in the body. I did some extra research on the other benefits of Matcha and I found that it has also been shown to improve mental clarity and help the immune system. Chaga is a mushroom and besides being really cool looking and what the co-creator of Shakeology Darin Olien calls the “grandfather of the forest” it also is chalked full of powerful antioxidants which have been shown to promote cardiovascular health as well as liver and intestinal health among other things. I love nerding out on the ingredients in Shakeology because it has helped my health so much and many of the superfood ingredients have been in use across the world for centuries in holistic medicine and healing.
Well, those sound freakin’ delicious.
If you have never had a half vanilla half cafe latte Shakeology blended with coconut milk and a banana then you just aren’t living. The great thing about these new flavors is that you do not have to wait to get them. They are available TODAY to customers in the USA (April 10, 2017). I know I will be switching my order to alternate some flavors!
