Shakeology- more than just a superfood shake!

Shakeology is by far my favorite meal of the day! (Request your FREE sample packet HERE!)
Here's my favorite recipe for a delicious chocolate milkshake that includes 9 servings of veggies, and over 70 different superfoods to help your body function at it's best. I LOVE that it's easy and fast to whip up and that I'm filling my body with nutrients that I need and has helped me to lose fat, improve digestion, curb cravings, increase my energy and feel amazing!!

Superfood Shake

 BLEND in Blender:

1 cup almond milk (I love unsweetened vanilla flavor)
1 scoop Shakeology
1/2 banana
1 cup ice
optional mix in:
1 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter

--enjoy! :)

Peanut Butter Protein Balls

1 cup chocolate Shakeology (Vegan or Regular)
1 cup almond or peanut butter
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup honey

Form into balls and roll over coconut flakes- SO YUMMY!

I take these to any party where I know they'll have tempting treats. Everyone always asks for the recipe and we're all glad there's a healthy but delicious option!

Energy Bars

  • 1 cup whole pitted dates (or prunes)
  • 1 cup dried fruit (like apricots, prunes, figs, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, or cherries)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (or seeds) (like almonds, walnuts, cashews, sesame seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, or sunflower seeds)
  • 2 scoops Shakeology, any flavor
  1. Place dates, fruit, and nuts in a food processor. Pulse for 1 to 2 minutes; scrape sides of bowl.
  2. Add Shakeology; process for 2 to 3 minutes, or until mixture becomes tiny crumbs that can come together to form a loose ball.
  3. Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with cellophane. Press mixture into pan until flat. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Cut into 12 bars. Store in refrigerator.
  5. Tip: For additional flair add one or more of the following: ½ tsp. rum extract, ½ tsp. cinnamon, 1 Tbsp. raw honey, ½ tsp. vanilla extract, 1–2 oz dark chocolate chips, or 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger. Adding any of these items may change the nutritional information.

Natural PB Cups

Chocolate Shakeology 
Peanut Butter (You can also use any nut butter you want to add variety in your treats)
A bowl
A 1/2 tablespoon
A spoon
Cupcake pan and paper cups
1. Place 1 cupcake cups in the pan. makes 4 so you only need 4 for the amount of ingredients here.
2. Place Chocolate Shakeology in the bowl. One full pack or 1 full scoop.
3. Add water until you have a wet pudding mixture. I started with 1/2 cup water, and added a little more. You want it a little runny, not as thick as pudding. You want to be able to pour it into the cupcake cups. You really can’t add too much water.
4. Mix the 2 ingredients well.
5. Take 1 spoonful of the chocolate Shakeology mixture you just made and scoop into each of the 4 cupcake holders. Use the spoon to spread out the mixture to cover the bottom of the cup. Put the remaining Shakeology mixture aside for later.
6. Mix your natural peanut butter well, and take 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter and scoop into each cup on top of the chocolate. Push it around to cover the chocolate as best as possible. This is your inner filling. Don’t use more then a 1/2 tbsp. because, all 4 Peanut Butter Cups will then equal 1 serving. (1 pack of Shakeology = 1 serving and 2 tbsp. of peanut butter = 1 serving size, so perfect combo.)
7. Take the remaining Shakeology mixture and add one spoonful to each cupcake cup. Spread out over the peanut butter.
8. Place tray in freezer for about an hour and a half to be nice and frozen.
9. Remove and enjoy! Remember, all 4 peanut butter cups can be eaten at one time to equal one healthy serving of Shakeology and peanut butter. I personally like to spread them out over the day and enjoy! I also found they are best after they have sat out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes!

Superfood Smoothie

BLEND in Blender:
1 packet tropical strawberry Shakeology
1 cup water
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen black cherries
1/2 frozen (or fresh) banana

--enjoy!! I always double the recipe and save the leftovers to pour in popsicle molds!! My kids love the shake AND the popsicles!!
