I used Shakeology for one year a while ago. I loved what it did for my body and health.what I didn't like was what it did for my pocket, it was just too expensive. I went 3 years without drinking protein shakes, because I didn't know I could fashion something similar to Shakeology by combining a full amino acid profile protein powder with a superfood powder plus flavors like raw cocoa and matcha. I chose Orgain because of the price, to be honest. My first purchase was the Chocolate flavor and I found two scoops in 8oz of liquid made an extremely sweet shake and I couldn't drink it. So I asked for a refund (and they didn't ask me to return the used canister!) and ordered the unflavored powder plus the Orgain Superfood powder. It's a winner!! I even like the texture better than Shakeology --- Shakeology was kinda gooey 😩
I vary my smoothies, but my staple recipe is:
1 frozen Banana (bananas ripen too fast, so I freeze them in ziplock bags) 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries 2 tbsp Peanut or nut butter 2 scoops Orgain 1 scoop Orgain Superfood Powder 1 tbsp raw cacao 10 oz Almond milk
It's freaking delicious and filling, plus I noticed less bloating.
