Tropical Strawberry Shakeology – Review Of Beachbody’s Vegan Tropical Shakeology Drink
If you read my blog, you know I’m a Independent Team Beachbody Coach, a huge advocate of their workouts, and use the Shakeology product and recommend it for daily nutrition. Before this year I had focused just on the Chocolate Shakeology product. I loved the chocolate, its taste with how I blended it, and even could handle the Shakeology Cleanse.
Earlier this year, Beachbody came out with a new flavor: Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology.
Now, the first thing I thought was “Vegan….eewww.” I’m way to much of an omnivore and do not mind how whey protein affects me. I was concerned about taste to be quite honest.
So, after using it for a bit now, here’s my review:
1. Taste – Naturally a better taste than chocolate. It is very tasty, even with just water (something that chocolate lacks).
2. Texture – The only knock I have on it. Brown rice protein is a bit chalkier texture on its own. It takes some experimentation to get rid of or minimize, but if texture does not bother you, you’ll love it.
3. Intangibles – Disclaimer: I love my chocolate shakes. BUT I LOVE how I feel after Tropical Shakeology versus the chocolate. I feel a bit heavier and a bit bloated after the chocolate. I do not feel that way at all with tropical. It is a very light feeling on the stomach.
Overall, if you are looking for something a tad bit better than chocolate, get tropical.
