Shakeology Alternatives

We all know Shakeology can get expensive, and if you’re someone like me who practically lives paycheck to paycheck, I can not afford Shakeology on a monthly basis. Yeah, they say you can save money on Shakeology if you become a coach, but honestly, in my opinion, it is still expensive. It’s $129.95 for a 30-serving bag. Now, I’m not dissing Shakeology. It is a great product, and I enjoyed it for a good while, but it was not looking so good in my bank account.

There’s a few cheaper and great alternatives that provide the same health benefits as Shakeology.

1. IdealShake Meal Replacement Shake


Idealshake comes in different flavors, such as Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Mocha. It’s only $49.99. That’s about $80 you can be saving in your pocket each month! And it comes with some great recipes, which most are fix approved! You can even use the recipes I have on my site here and replace it with this meal replacement shake. It’ll taste just as good! This is a great shake, however, if you have thyroid problems, I would avoid this shake as it contains soy. Otherwise, I would get this!

2. Vega One Nutritional Shake


Like Idealshake, Vega One comes in different flavors such as Chocolate, French Vanilla, Berry, Mocha, Natural, Vanilla Chai and Coconut Almond. A large tub costs $59.99, which is $10 more than Ideal Shake, however, be aware that Vega One has 20 servings versus Ideal Shake has 30 servings. Either way, it still costs way less than Shakeology and you would be saving $40 a month. What I really like about this meal replacement shake is that it is soy free, gluten free and dairy free and it is vegan. This is great for anyone who has thyroid problems.
