Which Shakeology Flavor is best?
Showing 20 results.
I am thinking about trying Shakeology . Can anyone recommend which flavor to try first? Which tastes the best ?

I am a newbie here. Have been doing power90 for the last 6 months and just ordered Chalene Extreme to up my workouts.

Thanks emoticon

Chocolate is by far the best. I add a scoop with milk (you can use almond or soy milk too), a spoonful of peanut butter and about 6 ice cubes - used crushed ice if you don't have a strong blender. Tastes like a peanut butter cup only healthy! Have one every morning to get me going!

Your coach should be able to get you a sample or if not, let me know and I can get you one (you'll have to be my client first though).

LOVE IT and I'm sure you will too.

Most people will say chocolate, so as long as you are not a chocolate-hater, I would start there.

I do not hate Greenberry, but many seem to.

The new tropical flavor coming out soon may beat them all based on what little I have seen about it.

It's a matter of personal preference. Some may hate chocolate in general, others love it....I don't care for greenberry on it's own but with some added fruit it's yummy. Contact your coach and ask them if they have samples of each they can send you. If you have never heard from your coach...right along the left side here (under connect) you'll see a link "My Coach" and you can contact them and ask.

I drink Chocolate with water and milk daily.. If you have the taste buds of a ten year old you will like the taste....personally I find the taste disgusting, but believe in the product. people will suggest you look at recipes but i beleive thats only to hide or mask the God awful taste...

AlohaFixie - I understand and accept this is your opinion, but if you haven't tried any of the recipes please don't comment on them.

I make my Chocolate Shakeology every morning with iced coffee and peanut butter, and it tastes like a peanut butter cup. I truly enjoy it, and it's not "masking the god awful taste".

My girlfriend and I absolutely love the Chocolate. I am lazy and just use 4 oz of non-fat milk and 4 oz of water in the mornings. If I find myself with extra time...I toss it into a blender with 5 or 6 ice cubes and a banana emoticon

Thank-you FitnessPartner for allowing me to have an opinion...I can now sleep at night...and the fact that you think your recipe tastes like a "peanut butter cup" speaks volumnes, and seems to validate my point, Aloha..

Chocolate is my favorite as well. However, the greenberry with some mixed fruit and orange juice is a nice change.

I must say(as said in other replies here), If you like chocolate....for the time being chocolate is the best. Personally, I could not get the greenberry down no matter what I tried it with. The initial smell of it and extreme after taste,in my opinion, was terrible. From what Ive read, most people cant stomach the greenberry. Somehow my wife did, but it took her several minutes to drink it down. I cant wait to try the new Tropical flavor coming out soon......I dont like chocolate very much. Im going to bet that the Tropical flavor will be the most popular. Hope this helps.

I tried the tropical flavor at Summit and noticed it was not an intense flavor, where as the greenberry and chocolate are (if you do not mix with anything like fruit, yogurt, peanut butter). Still assuming 4th quarter for that release but haven't heard anything yet.

I tried both, and I am not an over sweet craver, thus chocolate is like eating cake batter!. I like green berry very much. Most greens are bitter, this is not, smooth all the way even with plain water. Waiting for the new flavor. emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonhttp://www.teambeachbody.com/team-beachbody-theme/images/emoticons/big_grin.gif

I love both... I do the 24 pack deal and alternate between the two! Greenberry's really good with any added fruit from oranges to berries or whatever you can add in it. I always add lots of extra ice. Sometimes some almond milk. It's soooo refreshing, YUM! Chocolate is soooo good with 1/2 a banana, 1/2 a cup of cold coffee, and ice all blended up. Either's good and experiment with the recipes to find what work's for ya.

The recipes are great. Stop being so negative.

I just ordered the sample pack-you get 1 each of chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and greenberry or if you want the vegan pack you get 2 of each flavor (they only have 2 flavors) for 19.95 plus shipping.

I like strawberry and vanilla---but I think both so far have a bitter taster, I believe it is from the Stevia. The first two bites are very bitter but then I got used to it and enjoyed it. Then again, I don't like diet stuff because I can taste the bitterness of sugar-alternatives so I am probably one of a few that have this issue (haven't read anyone else saying it is bitter).

Anyway...I would get a sample pack so you don't have a 30 day bag and hate it based on others' opinions. Just an ideaemoticon

Have a great day!

I wish these didn't have stevia too. Can't stand it or any artificial sweetener.

Stevia is NOT an artificial sweetener: it is a plant. Too much stevia can turn it's taste from sweet to bitter. Ironically, in the vein of what's real v. fake, nearly all "sugar" today is made from sugar beets which have been genetically modified
