Tropical Shakeology Review

Tropical Shakeology ReviewNow that I’ve been using Tropical Shakeology for over a month, I wanted to write a Tropical Shakeology Review to let you all know what I think of the new formulation and flavor.  I was very, very excited for it to come out so I had some pretty high expectations before I even tried it!  With any new flavor of any product it does always come down to personal preference, so what I like, someone else might not and vice versa.  But with that being said, let’s jump into my Tropical Shakeology Review.

Tropical Shakeology Review – the Ingredients

The reason I was so excited about the release of Tropical Shakeology was the fact that it’s a vegan formulation, with some new ingredients that make it available for those of us who don’t or can’t eat animal products.  I’m not lactose intolerant, but I do find that whey protein can cause indigestion at time, so the sprouted brown rice protein was something I was very excited about.  So for anyone who is lactose intolerant or doesn’t eat any animal products for personal/health reasons, this is a great option.  To read more specifics on what’s in the new formulation, check out my article: Tropical Shakeology Ingredients.

Tropical Shakeology Review – Taste & Texture

If you’ve tried other plant-based protein drinks, you might be a little worried about the taste and texture of Tropical Shakeology.  Other vegan protein powders/drinks tend to not blend the best and can leave a very chalky taste in your mouth when you’re done.  That’s not too appetizing to say the least.  In my opinion, Tropical Shakeology does a great job in this category.  I usually just drink it with water in a shaker cup, and it blends just fine with the right amount of water.  The consistency I would say is a little thinner than Chocolate or Greenberry, but I don’t get a chalky texture at all and actually really enjoy the mild texture.  For all the ingredients that by themselves have a distinct or unpleasant taste or odor, it’s amazing how good this tastes!  I have an incredible sweet tooth, so I definitely like my sweets, and Tropical Shakeology really satisfies that craving.  It’s got a sweet, fruity taste that I really enjoy.  Out of all three flavors, this is definitely my favorite!

Tropical Shakeology Review – Favorite Recipe

There are tons of recipes out there, and I have by no means tried them all, but there is one that I am very fond of.  I usually just mix it with cold water, but when I’m splurging a bit, this is the recipe I like:

-1 scoop Tropical Shakeology
-1 cup unsweetened almond milk
-1 cup cold water
-1 cup frozen blueberries
-8 ice cubes

This makes it a little thicker and is absolutely delicious!  Like I said, it’s not my usual recipe, but it’s definitely my favorite way to make it!

Tropical Shakeology Review – Bottom Line

For me, the bottom line is that I love the new formulation and have switched my own HD order over to Tropical.  I am eating a vegan diet, so it meets that criteria, and it’s my favorite flavor out of the 3 that Beachbody offers now.  It satisfied my sweet tooth without the guilt of thinking I’m throwing off my nutrition, and really provides me with a good amount of energy.  There is really nothing out there like it, which is why I still drink it every day.
