Shakes are the best. If you follow me on social media you probably know I’m a big fan of protein shakes. They are a quick and easy…not to mention delicious way to get some extra protein in throughout the day. They are easy to take on-the-go or just sip on while you’re working on other things. If you get the right brand and mix in the right things…it can basically taste like dessert! A great way to fulfill you sweet tooth in a totally HEALTHY way! #winning #amiright?
So I’ve tried A LOT and I mean A LOT of protein powders and meal replacement shakes. There have been some that are okay, some that are just plain gross and then there are some that are absolutely fantastic! Ideal Shape shakes fit into the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC category. One thing I love about them is they have SO many flavors. My favorite currently is the Chocolate Peanut Butter. I like to make shakes with just 1 scoop of the chocolate pb powder, half a banana, water and ice and = BAM, it’s like drinking a Reese’s…but it’s good for you!
I’m also a big of of the Cookies and Cream and the Salted Caramel. They recently released a Cinnamon Bun and a Harvest Pumpkin Spice. I haven’t tried either of these ones yet but I can’t wait to! I’m sure they are incredible. I’ve got quite a few fall recipes up my sleeve once I get my hands on the Pumpkin Spice flavor. I also like adding these shake powders to other recipes, not just shakes. You can bump up your granola game (pumpkin spice granola anyone?!) or any of your cookie, pancake, etc. recipes with just an extra scoop of delicious idealshape shake powder.
I also REALLY love their Ideal Bars. They come in a bunch of flavors too! So there is something for everyone. My favorites are the Chocolate Peanut Butter (no surprise there!), Blueberry Crisp, Strawberry Yogurt and Double Chocolate. They area about 140-150 calories each and have 10-11 grams of protein, 5-6 grams of fiber and 6-9 grams of sugar. One tip I always give my clients is to look for protein bars that have more grams of protein than sugar…so these would be a perfect example!
