Eating a vegan diet means you consume no product derived from animals – including dairy like milk and eggs, which makes finding meal replacement shakes difficult. It can become even more challenging if you are also trying to avoid soy products in addition to sticking to a vegan diet. Many commercially available shakes are made with yogurt or milk, but if you are looking for a nutritious (and delicious!) vegan meal replacement shake, you will love the Tropical Strawberry flavor of Shakeology.
Tropical Strawberry – Vegan Meal Replacement Shake
The Tropical Strawberry formula contains a mix of strawberries, papayas, bananas, coconuts, pineapples and superfoods found all over the globe. It contains bio-fermented, raw sprouted brown rice protein, sacha inchi, chia, spirulina, quinoa, flax, and amaranth. It is 100% vegan, 100% soy free, 100% dairy-free and made from 100% whole food products. Using whole foods means there is nothing processed or refined in the shake – which delivers higher value vitamins and nutrients the way your body is designed to absorb them.
Despite the use of vegan proteins, this shake is still creamy and not gritty- just like the other Shakeology meal replacement shake flavors. Vegan proteins are blended ultra-fine, to give a great tasting, smooth shake that has outstanding health benefits. The use of raw sprouted, bio-fermented brown rice protein increases the metabolic nutrition and improves the quality of the protein while at the same time, reduces phytic acid which is known for interfering with the body’s ability to absorb minerals, and therefore helps your body benefit more from the vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, phytonutrients and essential fatty acids contained in this vegan meal replacement shake.
Vegan Meal Replacement Shake and Superfoods
Like all Shakeology meal replacement shakes, the vegan Tropical Strawberry flavor contains Superfoods designed to accelerate your health. There are four Superfoods in Tropical Strawberry:
- Coconut flower nectar: helps boost immune system and digestion. Coconut flower nectar consists of high potassium, zinc, iron, and magnesium. It is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, and C and it contains 17 amino acids.
- Luo Han Guo fruit: helps boost immune system, provides respiratory support and can soothe a sore throat. Luo Han Guo fruit is naturally sweet.
- Himalayan salt: helps stabilize pH balance and detoxify the blood. Himalayan salt is minimally processed and contains 70 trace minerals from the earth.
- Konjac root: removes fat and toxins from the digestive tract and improves cholesterol levels. It will help promote a healthy blood sugar level and help you feel full longer.
Plant Proteins VS Animal Proteins
You don’t have to live a vegan lifestyle to enjoy or benefit from a vegan meal replacement shake. Many people’s bodies digest plant proteins more efficiently than animal proteins, and you may find a vegan meal replacement shake helps you recover from a workout faster.
