If you’re new to my blog, Shakeology is – you guessed it – a shake packed with all the nutrients you’d find in an everyday meal. You make it with one scoop or one packet, mix with any liquid, experiment with some add-ins like those below, and is best served with ice crushed or cubed. It can be made by using a blender bottle or shaker cup, but for the best results I’d recommend using an actual blender.
And if you haven’t actually tried Shakeology yet, I highly recommend it as a great way to get the most nutrition in your day! You can order Shakeology here.
Shakeology can also be used for snacks and desserts – more on that in the recipes below!
Chocolate shakeology recipes to drink
Each recipe below is made with:
- Your choice of 1 cup water, almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, etc.
- 1 cup ice
- 1 scoop or 1 packet of Chocolate Shakeology or Vegan Chocolate Shakeology
I typically like to use unsweetened almond milk because it seems to result in a better texture than just using a cup of water. I also really like adding in a medium banana (frozen is best) to give it a texture similar to a Wendy’s Frosty. So yum!
Traditional Chocolate Shakeology
Only use the basic ingredients listed above and you’re done! Just combine Shakeology with a cup of cold water (or milk) and a cup of ice and blend until mixed well.
Chocolate Peppermint Shakeology
If you like mint chocolate chip ice cream, you’ll love this recipe! Add just a dash of peppermint extract (about 1/8 teaspoon) to your Shakeology powder, liquid, and ice.
Be careful with this one, as adding too much mint extract can make it REALLY minty and it will taste like you’re drinking mouthwash.
Add a whole frozen banana – or half, if you want it a little less thick.
Chunky Monkey Shakeology
Mix one scoop chocolate Shakeology with a banana (fresh or frozen) and a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. You might not think a peanut butter protein shake could taste like peanut butter cups, but it can! So yummy.
Substitute 1 cup of cold coffee or one cup cappuccino instead of water for a caffeinated treat. I love this one when I want a cafe mocha type of drink to cure my coffee and chocolate craving!
Chocolate Vanilla Bean
Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for this refreshing drink.
Mix 1/2 cup coffee with 1/2 cup liquid of your choice (water or milk option) and add 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract for a winter favorite.
Substitute 1 cup cooled chai tea (how’s that alliteration?) for an earthy flavor.
Add 1 banana, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon rum extract to your drink for this lovely treat.
German Chocolate Shakeology
Mix with 1 teaspoon pure caramel extract and 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut. You can also use light coconut milk instead of water for a little extra coconut flavor.
Add 5 dashes of cinnamon for this Mexican hot chocolate-inspired shake.
Chocolate Shakeology Treat Recipes
You can use a serving of chocolate Shakeology in place of cocoa powder or chocolate chips in some of your favorite recipes to add some of those essential amino acids and digestive enzymes to your treats! Here are some of my favorite chocolate flavor recipes that I love when I get that sweet craving.
Hazelnutty Chocolate Smoothie bowl
For this recipe, blend 1 scoop of Shakeology with 3/4 cup unsweetened liquid and 1 cup ice. Pour into a bowl and top with 2 Tablespoons chopped hazelnuts, 1 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut, and half of a sliced banana.
Chocolate Shakeology Pudding
Blend 2 scoops of Chocolate shakeology, 1 avocado, 2 bananas, and 1 cup almond milk. Pour into bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour before enjoying.
No-Bake Chocolate Shakeology Cookies
Mix together in a medium bowl:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup Shakeology
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons of water
When dark brown “dough” forms, scoop out tbsp portions of cookies, roll them into balls, and refrigerate them for at least 20 minutes. Using a flat surface, press each ball into a disc shape.
Kinda like Shakeology balls, but cookies!
Good luck with making your Shakeology shakes – feel free to experiment! You can often take a basic recipe and substitute different fruits and nuts for different flavors.
And be sure to try different flavors of Shakeology to see which ones you like the most! Vanilla Shakeology is pretty versatile (and is delicious when mixed with orange juice).
