SPECIAL NOTE FOR VEGAN FORMULATIONS: Shakeology is dietary supplement in a food form, and since our vegan formulas are not fortified, the levels of any one nutrient should not be an issue for anyone or for a pregnant woman. Pregnant women need to careful about levels of Vitamin A (10,000 IU is the upper limit), but the amounts we have at unfortified levels are similar to those found in unfortified foods and in fruits and vegetables. Accordingly, pregnant women should consider their intake of vegan Shakeology as part of their normal diet, but should not rely solely on Shakeology to meet the needs of pregnancy for nutrients like, iron, folate, Vitamin A, or calcium.
Preparing and Refrigerating/Freezing Shakeology
How should I prepare Shakeology? Also, can it be refrigerated or frozen once prepared? If so, for how long?
Tropical Strawberry is best when combined with ice, water, juice, almond milk, rice milk, coconut water or other vegan milks, but if you are not vegan Chocolate Vegan can also be combined with cow’s milk. However, Tropical Strawberry is not recommended to be combined with cow’s milk. Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan Shakeology is best consumed within 30 minutes as it may thicken.
Chocolate, Greenberry, and Vanilla Formulas are best prepared with cold water, or beverage (cow’s milk, almond milk, rice milk, juice, etc.) and ice in a blender. Blend until creamy for a frosty smoothie. For more smoothie recipes, go to Shakeology.com.
For ALL formulas: Once mixed/prepared, we recommend consumption within 30 minutes.
Also, freezing Shakeology will not adversely affect its nutritional value. However, once frozen, the texture and consistency of Shakeology may change after thawing (thicker, more gelatinous).
Shakeology – Caffeine / Stimulant Content
Does Shakeology contain any caffeine or stimulants?
Our mission is to use whole ingredients (not extracts) in our formulations. As such, a whole leaf, all-natural green tea is used in each of the Shakeology formulas. Natural cocoa (cacao) is found in Chocolate and Chocolate Vegan formulas; cocoa contains theobromine, a beneficial compound which has a similar chemical structure to caffeine. Therefore all formulations contain low levels of naturally-occurring caffeine.
The green tea we use in Shakeology is a whole herb powder with naturally occurring levels of caffeine. We don’t add caffeine to it, the plant contains it, and it’s not removed due to it being whole herb and not an extract. Only extracts can completely remove caffeine content from green tea. Despite this, the caffeine content is very low. For example, in Greenberry Shakeology, there less than one (1) mg per serving, to put this in perspective, a typical 12 oz cup of brewed coffee sold at a popular coffeehouse contains about 250 mg of caffeine . While the amount of caffeine maybe higher in Chocolate Shakeology flavors since Cacao (cocoa) contains naturally occurring levels of caffeine, it does not approach the amount in coffee or in caffeinated beverages. However, caffeine is a sensitivity for some consumers so if they can have no caffeine at all, it’s best to stay away from all sources, even naturally occurring amounts, and discuss the product with their doctor before consuming.
Benefits of Vegan Shakeology Compared to Regular
What are the benefits of the Vegan Shakeology formulas compared to the regular formulas?
The Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan Shakeology are dairy free, Lactose free and soy-free. They contain a new proprietary blend of plant-based proteins. It is ideal for those who cannot tolerate or wish to avoid whey protein or animal proteins, and those with intolerance’s to dairy and soy.
Many people find that a vegan protein is more easily digested by the body than animal protein. The vegan formulas are not fortified with additional vitamin and mineral isolates (as the whey-based Shakeology formulas are). Therefore, for people looking for nutrition (vitamins and minerals) coming exclusively from whole foods, without fortification, the vegan Shakeology is a great option.
Shakeology – Scoop Size & Bag Size
Do customers use a full scoop of Shakeology or just up to the line? Why do some Shakeology scoops and bag sizes differ?
To get the full daily serving of Shakeology, customers should use a full scoop, no matter what amount of liquid is used. While the majority of ingredients and superfoods are common across all Shakeology formulations, the scoop and bag sizes differ because there are slight ingredient differences.
For example, the Chocolate flavors contain Cacao, while the others do not. The Vegan formulations contain ingredients such as brown rice protein and pea protein; these ingredients cause the bulk density of the powder to increase. That means you are still getting 30 servings of Shakeology but each serving is actually bulkier (or fluffier)–requiring a slightly larger bag. Rest assured that all formulations (no matter what the scoop size is) deliver your daily dose of dense nutrition.
|Flavor||Serving Size||Scoop Size|
|Vanilla||35g||Smaller Scoop (63cc)|
|Greenberry||35g||Smaller Scoop (63cc)|
|Strawberry||35g||Medium Scoop (70cc)|
|Chocolate||42g||Larger Scoop (80cc)|
|Tropical Strawberry||41g||Medium/Large Scoop (73cc)|
|Chocolate Vegan||43g||Larger Scoop (80cc)|
*CC is a volumetric fill measurement (cubic centimeters). You can find the scoop sizes written on bottom of each scoop in Shakeology.

The Value of Shakeology
At just over $4 per serving, Shakeology is an incredible value. Each serving packs up to 17g of protein per serving along with whole-food nutrition from some of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet. This combination of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, phytonutrients and rare adaptogens is unparalleled. Beachbody is exceptionally proud of the benefits Shakeology delivers. Beachbody makes great efforts to ensure the high quality and purity of ingredients- when all of this is factored in, the value is truly impressive.
Each serving contains the same nutritional value as:
3 cups of romaine lettuce
4 cups of raw mushrooms
1 shot of wheatgrass
1 bowl of exotic fruit
3 raw onions
7 raw carrots
4 cups of non-fat yogurt
4 cups of red radishes
4 cups of raw broccoli
1 cup of peas
10 cups of cauliflower
Buying all of these ingredients individually would cost approximately $41 versus just $4 for one serving of Shakeology!
