These are a few of my favorite recipes…. [Shakeology, that is!]

I’ve been drinking Shakeology almost every day for 3 years now, and I can easily say it’s the first thing that put me on track for a healthier lifestyle. It gave me the energy I needed to finally work out and eat healthier.

 

On top of that, I’ll forever sing its praises after what it did for me in my jaw surgery recovery. It was nothing short of miraculous. 

 

 

I’ve decided to compile some of my favorite Shakeology recipes for your tasty reference! Every recipe is gluten-free and typically uses ingredients already found in your pantry.

Tips:

  • If you want an even creamier texture, you can do 1 full cup of milk instead of 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water. I just like it half and half! (Not the creamer, that is….)
  • If you need to bulk up your shake with even more protein, try adding plain Greek yogurt to the mix.
  • Lastly, if you want to make it even more ridiculously healthy, try two things:
    1. Adding a Shakeology Boost to your shake, or
    2. add raw kale or spinach to your drink. Kale will make it taste different, but spinach will not.
