Shakeology Tropical Strawberry has arrived!

Yes it's finally the long awaited day of Tropical Strawberry-ness we have all been eager for since we tasted it last year at summit 2011. Well wait no more!

This VEGAN shake, yes you read right. Vegan shake is the most delicious meal replacement shake you will ever have. With flavors such as coconuts, papayas, pineapples, bananas, strawberries, and much more super foods what's not to love about this 100% vegan, soy and dairy free shake.

Many people digest plant proteins better than animal proteins and Tropical Strawberry Shakeology contains vitamins and nutrients your body craves in a more readily assimilable form to keep you strong, healthy, lean, and focused. It will without  a doubt help you: LOSE WEIGHT, REDUCE CRAVINGS, STAY REGULAR, FEEL ENERGIZED, EXPERIENCE VITALITY!

What makes this shake so different is that for the first time ever, 100% Vegan is creamy and smooth.

The wizards behind the creation of Shakeology make this a smooth, gritt free vegan taste by blending ultra-fine, bio-fermented, raw sprouted brown rice protein with sacha inchi, quinoa, chia, flax, amaranth, and spirulina. so it will taste good and be even better for you.

Why you might ask? Because when a seed sprouts, it transitions from being dormant, to active, catapulting a metabolic explosion of nutrition. Vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants all skyrocket, creating more amazing stuff for your body. Sprouting also synthesizes healthy enzymes and increases the quality of proteins. And it reduces phytic acid, a substance that interferes with a body's ability to absorb minerals. Bio-fermenting further breaks down the rice rain, releasing enzymes to make it easier for your body to absorb it's vitamins and other nutrients.


The wonders of Sacha Inchi. It's high-quality, easily absorbable, organic vegetable protein is remarkable in so many ways. First, it's naturally rich in good fats and fiber, which helps control your appetite. It also helps promote the body's natural anti-inflammatory response to keep you healthy. And sacha ichi has a very high concentration of omega fatty acids--providing a perfect balance of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9.

Sacha Inchi 


Whole foods are super important. All the key nutrients in this shake come from 100% whole foods. And what's so great about whole foods? Because they're unprocessed and unrefined, whole foods deliver vitamins and nutrients to your body in the most holisitc and easily assimilated way--the way nature intended.

With Superfoods comes great super nutrition. In Shakeology Strawberry Tropical they've added four new superfoods!

Coconut Flower Nectar -- High in potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron; is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C; AND contains 17 amino acids. It's also rich with inulin, a prebiotic fiber that feeds our intestinal flora and helps boost digestive and immune functions.

Luo Han Guo Fruit -- low glycemic fruit has been used as a powerful and healthy way to lend natural sweetness to foods in Asia for nearly a millennium. It's antioxidant properties help with immune health, and the fruit has also been used in Asia for medicinal purposes, such as respiratory support and to soothe sore throats.

Himalayan Salt -- our bodies need salt, but only the good kind. Because Himalayan salt is minimally processed, it contains more than 70 trace minerals from the Earth that our bodies need. Plus, it may help detoxify the blood and stabilize cells' pH balance.

Konjac Root -- when used as a soluble dietary fiber, this superfood helps promote healthy blood sugar levels, makes you feel quicker, promotes healthy cholesterol levels and helps clean the digestive tract of excess fat and toxins. 

We love Shakeology in every single flavor. I'm a bit of a chocolate nut myself, but I still love the flavor of Shakeology Strawberry Tropical. If you're interested or have any questions please let us know. We are always available and happy to help out.
