S’mores Smoothie Recipe and My Shakeology Review

Hi guys I hope you are having a great weekend.  It is supposed to be  rainy and windy this weekend which is making it difficult to get my long run in.  So I think I will hit Orange Theory and see how Sunday turns out.  

About a month ago I was talking with my new friend Anna Renderer, host of Popsugar Fitness about changing some things up in my diet and fitness routine.  She suggested I try out Shakeology and make some intensity adjustments to my workouts.  I had heard of Shakeology before and even tried it a few years ago.  I decided to give it a try again.  I admit I was skeptical and I am VERY picky about what I put into my body!  It has been about 6 weeks now of consistently drinking it daily.  I have been enjoying it as a post workout snack or a quick and easy lunch.  I am pretty much addicted now!  So much so that I decided to become a Beachbody coach.  I already love the workouts (P90x, Piyo, Insanity, 21 Day Fix) so I decided why not help people on their journey of health and fitness more than I already do at the gym and on my blog.  

Here is what I love about Shakeology:

  1. It’s not just a protein shake.  It has super nutrients we need in our diets like phytonutrients, adaptogens, vitamins and minerals.  It also has digestive enzymes and probiotics for healthy digestion.
  2. It’s good for your body.  Since I started drinking it I have noticed an increase in my energy and my cravings for chocolate have lessened!  
  3. It’s a quick and easy meal replacement when needed.  When I am really busy or forget to pack my lunch for school I have the individual serving packets at school to whip up a quick smoothie.  

When I first looked at the cost of Shakeology I was surprised.  It seemed very expensive.  However, when my hubby and I calculated what I spend monthly on probiotics, digestive enzymes, greens powder, and my multi vitamin it ended up being about the same.  So now I can just drink one Shakeology a day instead of taking all of my supplements.  To me that’s a big plus!  

Shakeolgy S'moresI also love all the recipes out there.  If you love S’mores, like I do this recipe is for you! The only reason I camp is for S’mores!  If you love S’mores you will love this smoothie without the sugar and added calories.  It is tasty!

 If you haven’t tried Shakeology and are interested in giving it a try, let me know.  You can try it for a month and if you don’t love it you will get your money back even if the bag is empty.  My personal favorites are the vanilla and chocolate flavors.
