I have always been a fan of meal replacement drinks and shakes. I am not really sure why, but I think it is because I like the on the go feature, the vitamins they have in them and because when I get up so early with the kids and for work, I just do not feel like making and eating breakfast.
There is no doubt that there are good meal replacement shakes out there and really bad ones. In my opinion a lot of what determines if a replacement shake is good or bad is determined by your preference in taste. Let’s face it, there can be an awesome quality product out there, but if you do not like the taste then you will not want to use it. It is no fun to be pinching your nose while you are trying to consume something or chasing it down with another drink to get rid of the taste.
I recently got to try a two week supply of Shakeology. I am telling you that the taste of this product is awesome as far as I am concerned. My favorite was the chocolate and I actually find it somewhat addicting. I found myself looking forward to when I could have my next chocolate shake. It taste like really creamy chocolate ice cream and I LOVE it.
There are three base flavors of the Shakeology mixes, Chocolate, Greenberry and Tropical Strawberry. As I said, my favorite flavor was Chocolate. The Greenberry grew on me and I quickly found myself loving it as a second choice to the Chocolate. My least favorite was the Tropical Strawberry. I love strawberries but I actually found the Tropical Strawberry to have a powdery feeling to it which the other two flavors did not have.
There are so many recipes that you can do with the three flavors, but you can do a quick simple on the go shake as well. If I had time I liked to mix the shake in the blender with milk and ice. It was like having a treat for breakfast. When I was on the go I just popped the shake into a mixing cup with milk and with a quick shake it was ready for me to drink. I always found myself trying to get those last little drops out of my shaker because of how much I loved the taste.

It is always nice to find a product that is easy to use, easy to keep using, you look forward to having and that makes you feel great. I feel that Shakeology is that product for me. I love it and love how easy it is to use. I look forward to it as well.
For me, the only flavor I would order is Chocolate because I love it soooooo much. I would order Greenberry if Chocolate was not available, but for Chocolate is my favorite by far.
