Hi guys and gals! Spring is officially here - although in our neck of the woods, it has felt like early summer for weeks now! :-)
Our order of Shakeology's newest flavor, Tropical Strawberry, arrived last week! We are huge believers in Shakeology, and have either the Chocolate or Greenberry flavors daily. We have our individual favorite recipes and it is our little "insurance policy" for nutrition (i.e., making sure we meet our fruit/veggie/mineral needs every day!)
Quick overview of Tropical Strawberry Shakeology - it has all the amazingness of the Chocolate and Greenberry flavors (70+ vitamins, minerals, loads of fruits, veggies, antioxidants, probiotics, protein, etc.) and it has the added benefit of being vegan, which means it contains no animal by-products (no whey protein) and is made with a brown rice protein.
Here is the video Lindsay made of her impressions after her first Tropical Strawberry Shakeology. Texture concerns and a bubble-gummy flavor were the weak points.
Our second try (and every subsequent try since then) has been much better! As mentioned in the video, letting it sit for 7-10 minutes after blending seems ideal and certainly makes the texture less gritty. Also, adding in a heaping of frozen fruit cuts the bubble-gummy flavor better. Our favorite recipe so far is: 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks, and Tropical Strawberry Shakeology...blend it, let sit for nearly 10 minutes, re-blend, then drink!
