Shakeology Recipes

Berry Coconut Shakeology

Berry Coconut Shakeology

What does the 4th of July mean to you? Maybe it conjures up a happy memory of you at 8 years old on a boat with your family. Maybe it’s watching fireworks with your first high school boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe, if you’re like me, it makes you think of pie, cookies, ribs, and…ice cream.

Orange Creamsicle Shakeology

Orange Creamsicle Shakeology

I grew up in a town that was famous for its orange groves, so my childhood memories are perfumed with the fragrance of orange blossoms and the flavor of my grandmother’s fresh-squeezed orange juice. I loved orange-flavored anything. I was the weird one who preferred the orange Starburst over the pink. I even liked chocolate more if it had a hint of zest. And Orange Creamsicles? Those were my absolute favorite.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Shakeology

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Shakeology

Beatles or Stones? Even if you like both, when forced to choose your band, you know which one reigns supreme.

It’s been my experience that the same is true with cookies. Chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin? You may love both (of course you love both), but if a tray of fresh-from-the-oven cookies is offered with both flavors, and you can only take one, most people will instinctively reach for the same kind of cookie every time.

Blueberry Brew Shakeology

Blueberry Brew Shakeology

Blueberries and coffee might seem like an odd combination at first, but after one sip of this Café Latte Shakeology recipe, you’ll see that you’ve been missing out on a stellar pairing this whole time! And with only three ingredients (plus ice), this shake couldn’t be any easier to make.

Candy Corn Smoothie

Candy Corn Smoothie

Candy corn may be the most popular Halloween candy in the U.S. (it’s the preferred choice in five states), but we’re hoping that’s because it is also one of the scariest. The waxy yellow, orange, and white kernels are made up of mostly sugar and corn syrup (not to mention the artificial colors and flavors), earning it a spot on our list of the scariest ingredients in Halloween candy.

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

If you are a fan of sweet potato pie (and who isn’t?), allow us to introduce you to what might just be the best use of leftover sweet potato ever invented: the Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie. Did you know that you can turn a plain baked or boiled sweet potato into a creamy smoothie that tastes remarkably like sweet potato pie? And, you can even drink it for breakfast if that’s your jam.

Apple Pie Shakeology

Apple Pie Shakeology

On the morning after Thanksgiving, if there is any leftover apple pie in the house, I usually can’t stop myself from eating a piece for breakfast. With a spoonful of whipped cream on top. It’s a terrible, terrible idea. Instead, I should be using other leftovers to make Turkey and Stuffing Egg Cups or Turkey and Brussels Sprouts Frittata. But, pie. This year, I’m going to make this Apple Pie Shakeology instead. I pinky swear.

Chocolate Almond Shakeology

Chocolate Almond Shakeology

Three simple ingredients come together to create a Shakeology recipe like you’ve never tasted before. Almond butter adds a hint of nut flavor, maple syrup adds rich sweetness, and a dash of cinnamon adds delicious spice. Blend them all together with Chocolate Vegan Shakeology (or Chocolate Shakeology), and you have a five-star breakfast, snack, or even dessert.

Chocolate Strawberry Pomegranate Shakeology

Chocolate Strawberry Pomegranate Shakeology

One of the many cutting edge things about Recover and Recharge are their use of phytonutrient extracts. In Recover, you’ll find pomegranate extract rich in ellagatanins—also known as “the recovery phytonutrient”, having been compared to non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NAIADS) like ibuprofen for alleviating exercise-induced pain, muscle soreness, stiffness, and overall inflammation. In Recharge, you’ll find tart cherry extract, in which the anthocyanin have also been shown to combat exercise-induced inflammation.

Matcha Latte Shakeology

You’ve probably seen the matcha lattes (also called green tea lattes since matcha is made from the powdered leaves of green tea) at coffee houses, and that’s cool because matcha definitely has benefits, but unfortunately most use sugary syrups and flavorings, or add sugar to their matcha powder. Instead of a sugar-laced latte, we recommend trying this version made with Shakeology.

Our version of a matcha latte starts with Vanilla Shakeology (which now includes matcha!), and then we add additional matcha powder for flavor and color. You’ll find a little matcha goes a long way! So consider using your leftover matcha powder for making other cold/hot beverages like this Matcha Pink Drink or even baking with it as with this Green Tea Ice Cream.

When heating up matcha, be aware that it can get bitter quite easily. So when making tea or other hot beverages, try to avoid using scalding hot water, which can cause the powder to taste bitter.

Peppermint Patty Shakeology

Refreshing peppermint, creamy vanilla, and craveable chocolate come together in this smoothie version of a Peppermint Patty. The classic candy is a favorite of mint-lovers, but is loaded with sugar, corn syrup, and artificial flavor. This Peppermint Patty smoothie? Even though it tastes like a dessert, it boasts 18 grams of protein to fuel your day.

This recipe uses two flavors of Shakeology, so it’s perfect for people have the Shakeology 7-Day Sampler Pack or Barista Combo Pack! It can also be made with either Chocolate or Vanilla Shakeology with delicious results.
