Vanilla Shakeology + Strawberries = YUMMY!

If you’ve been following my Facebook feed or my blog, you know that Vanilla Shakeology is here! If not, you can read about it here. Darin Olien, Isabelle and Carl Daikeler refused to compromise on the benefits of drinking Shakeology differently but using a lot of chemical processing to achieve a good flavor. Then, the world’s best ingredient hunter, Darin Olien, found a pure vanilla which is potent enough to not be overpowered by all the superfoods in Shakeology ——> Vanilla Shakeology was born! (and if you’re Vegan, keep checking back as Vegan Vanilla Shakeology is due next year!).

Today I shot a quick video of my first mix with Vanilla Shakeology. At the Team Beachbody Summit, I tried it with just ice/water and it was delicious and refreshing right out of the bag! I also tried a Vanilla Latte mix and even though I don’t drink coffee, I loved it! Today, I’m using fresh, organic strawberries (1/2-1 serving of fresh strawberries), coconut beverage (1/2 cup), ice/water. If you use frozen strawberries, you don’t need to add ice, just water (about 12oz).

My Latest Shakeology Recipe

With my recent revelation that I am gluten-intolerant and so it would seem, oat-intolerant as well, I’m having to rethink breakfast. I need it to be quick and easy. I’m still unsure about eggs. I think I can one but certainly not everyday. So, I am moving my lunch Shakeology to breakfast!!! My wonderful husband surprised me with a Vitamix for Valentine’s day. I now have a new recipe since the Vitamix gets my shakes so smooth and creamy!

1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1/2 serv Hemp Pro 70
2 cups of organic greens (baby spinach, swiss chard etc)
4 organic baby carrots
1 tbsp organic chia seeds
1/2 c SO Delicious coconut milk
1 1/2c water
1/2 serv of frozen fruits (right now I’m on a mixed berry kick)

This formula is 348 calories, 35g carbs, 9g fat, 35g protein, 12g fiber

Here is a great article on leafy greens! Note that iceberg lettuce is at the very bottom and practically devoid of nutrients yet it is the most popular green in America.
