What is in Shakeology?

Shakeology can be described as a meal replacement shake, or it can be described as a supplement– both are good descriptions for this awesome, power-packed drink.   Plus, it makes for a totally delicious and filling snack or meal.

Wondering what is in Shakeology?

In addition to reading here about the nutrient groups and what they do for your body, you can also check out this interview with Darin Olien, the co-creator of Shakeology, to learn more about some of the superfood ingredients.

There are so many power-packed ingredients.  Some of the ingredients you may have heard of, like Chia Seeds, and some may be new to you.   Moringa, one of the superfoods in Chocolate Vegan Shakeology, was new to me until Darin Olien, Shakeology’s ingredient hunter, gave a talk on it.

How does Shakeology Taste?

Before we dive into the awesome ingredients of Shakeology, let’s talk briefly about the taste since that is one of the questions we receive a lot.

We love it, and we’ve had a lot of awesome feedback from our readers that Shakeology is delicious.  But not everyone agrees.

If you have never tried a meal replacement shake before, you may want to consider some of our other fast healthy food recipes, like this chick pea recipe.  If you are up for giving Shakeology a try, it can be a lot of fun to experiment and find the way you like it best.  My personal favorite these days is Chocolate macaroon Shakeology.

For those of you that currently have a lot of processed foods in your diet,  I can almost guarantee you’ll have  to drink it for a week or 2 before your taste buds will embrace Shakeology.  The good news is, you can try it, and if you don’t like it, you can return it.

Shakeology comes with a 30-day bottom of the bag money back guarantee (less s&h); so you can try it risk-free.
