For this post, we’re going back to the basics: Chocolate Shakeology recipes. Here I’ve gathered the best Shakeology recipes that I think you’ll enjoy! [UPDATED for 2020]
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 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 of water, almond milk, coconut milk, etc.
- 1 cup ice
- 1 scoop or 1 packet of Chocolate Shakeology
Traditional Chocolate shakeology
Only use the ingredients listed above and you’re done! Really, it’s that simple.
Add 1/8 tsp of mint extract – be careful with this one, as adding too much can make it REALLY minty.
Add a whole frozen banana – or half, if you want it a little less thick.
Substitute 1 cup of cold coffee for your liquid for a caffeinated treat.
Chocolate Vanilla Bean
Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract for this refreshing drink.
Mix 1/2 c coffee with 1/2 liquid of your choice (water or milk option) and add 1/8 tsp 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 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp rum extract to your drink for this lovely treat.
Mix with 1 tsp pure caramel extract and 2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut.
Add 5 dashes of cinnamon for this Mexican hot chocolate-inspired shake.
Chocolate Shakeology Treat Recipes
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 Tbsp chopped hazelnuts, 1 1/2 tsp 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 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup Shakeology, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, 1/4 cup honey, and 2 tbsp water in a large bowl. 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 – feel free to experiment! You can often take a basic recipe and substitute different fruits and nuts for different flavors. Happy tasting!
