A New Way to Use Chocolate Shakeology

I am always looking for new recipes for Shakeology whether it be for an actual shake or energy/protein balls. I like to experiment quite a bit with food, so during my last round of the 21 Day Fix I decided to mix my chocolate Shakeology and greek yogurt. IT IS AMAZING.

When I first mixed the two, it didn’t look like it would come out okay because it seemed as though there was way too much chocolate Shakeology and not enough of yogurt. I measured one of my red containers from the 21 Day Fix (protein container) for the yogurt. I kept mixing the two together though and what do you know? It turned into a chocolate pudding/mousse mixture. I added some raspberries (in this picture those were all I had left in my fridge…not even enough to fill 1/2 of a purple container).

This is the BEST creation…you can add any fruit, nut, etc. It is like eating dessert…but it is extremely healthy!! If you are following the 21 Day Fix this would count as 2 reds, and 1/2 or 1 purple (depending on how much fruit you decide to add).

I have a hard time fitting in all of the protein needed for the day (4 servings of the red containers) so this is ideal for me since it takes care of 2 of the 4 servings I need. Then, I eat a protein for lunch and 1 for dinner and I am all set.

You might ask why I don’t just put all of these ingredients in the blender to make a shake. Well, I do that too, but this has a completely different texture and taste for me. You’ll have to try it out to see for yourself!

Why Should I Drink Shakeology Every Day?

Why should I spend the money and drink shakeology daily?

This is the ongoing question I asked myself over and over again for weeks before I finally decided to faithfully drink this shake. If you haven’t already read my Shakeology post at the top of my page, it is right next to “Contact” and you should check it out.

Basically what happened in my situation is I tried the shakes once because I was involved in a 21 Day Fix challenge group. I LOVED the shakes and saw a positive change in my digestion and stomach issues, had more energy, and it kept me full so I wasn’t snacking as much. The problem was the price. I am a teacher and don’t make a million dollars so I didn’t re-order a new month’s supply when I ran out.

After 3 days of not drinking the shakes, my stomach issues slowly came back, I took a nap from being tired, and of course I started snacking again. I had to decide if my health was more important or the money. The irony of this is…is that the shakes are actually CHEAPER to buy rather than trying to buy all of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients included.

This blog states, “Trying to get all of these supplements in your daily diet would cost you a ton of money. Unless you are Donald Trump or Bill Gates, this would be a bit too much (around $1256.40 per month, at $41.88 per day). One serving of Shakeology is around $4.33 or $129.95 per month.”

Also, keep in mind, this can be used as a meal replacement. Therefore, think about how much one of your meals cost every single day and multiply that by 30. I will bet that most of you spend more money on a meal than you would on a Shakeology shake! For example, I would go to Dunkin Donuts every day and order a medium coffee with skim milk and splenda with a wheat bagel and cream cheese. That cost $5.10. Shakeology is actually cheaper than that!

Here are some of the many benefits of drinking Shakeology and why it is worth every dollar!
