My bag finally came and I am really enjoying it.
Whenever I try a new flavor I like to mix it with just water and that is exactly what I did. Well water, ice then blend. I like my shakes cold.
Strawberry is really good just by itself. Now there is a Tropical Flavor which I have reviewed. That is the vegan shakeology and it is more of a strawberry flavor and can have a chalky taste. You can read my review about that here http://fitdadchris.com/tropical-shakeology/ now if you read that you will know it is my least favorite flavor.
I would put the new Strawberry at #2 with chocolate shakeology still at my #1. Normally I am a huge vanilla guy, but this strawberry is better for me.
Well after I had it with just water I started experimenting.
My normal go to recipe is about 1 cup water, some ice, scoop of strawberry, 1 banana, and maybe a handful of blue-berries if we have them. Blend that up in the old Vitamix and bamm! Good to go.
The other day I made my wife a smoothie that went something like this.
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 5 Tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup OJ
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 6 strawberries
It was great and I liked the tang the OJ gave it so today I tried a new recipe with my strawberry shake.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup OJ
- 1 scoop strawberry shakeology
- handful of blueberries
- 1/2 cup ice
It was amazing! The OJ gave it that tang I enjoyed.
Well if you have been on the fence about switching up I saw go for it![buyfromme]
