Vanilla Meal Replacement & Protein Shake Recipes

I have used protein shakes for years!  It was not until recently that I found Shakeology which is a complete meal replacement shake.  For those of you who are reading my blog for the first time and don't know how Shakeology has changed my life all for the better please read my story here.  By adding Shakeology into any of these shakes it will turn it into a complete meal for you!  Adding in all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.  If you already have some protein powder you are looking to use up please know for a protein drink/snak you can do that.  Any of the recipes below can be made with regular protein powder or shakeology.  With that being said the only difference would be is if you use regular protein powder you will not be getting a full meal replacement from the shake. Please check your labels on your powders. You do not want these items in your powder: soy, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors etc. If you want more information on Shakeology or want me to look your label over please feel free to contact me via email or fb messenger.  


The great thing about these recipes is that you can easily tweak them according to your taste and what you have on hand.  There really is no right or wrong combination.  If you like a thicker shake, add more yogurt.  Want it sweeter?  Add more honey.   You can also add chia seeds to your protein shakes to add more protein.  I soak the chia seeds in water first so they’re softer and not so crunchy.  Another healthy add-in is a teaspoon of melted coconut oil.  You can also find a complete list or Shakeology recipes here.
