Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and that’s also the official release date of the newest flavor of Shakeology — Tropical Strawberry Vegan!




I’ve been a daily Shakeology (Chocolate) user for nearly a year now, and it’s completely changed my health.  I am never sick, I feel great all the time, I have energy, and it’s the perfect cornerstone to my healthy nutrition plan.

That’s why I’m so excited for the new Tropical Shakeology!   I recently spent 60 days eating a vegan diet, and I wish this had been available then.  I’m very glad it’s available now, because it is perfect for those on a vegan diet, or those who cannot tolerate whey protein or animal/dairy based products.

And to tide you over until you can actually get some for yourself, let me fill you in on what Tropical Shakeology is all about …

The new Tropical flavor is a great compliment to Chocolate.  I love the Chocolate.  The new Tropical WILL NOT be available in assortment packs like the Chocolate/Greenberry.  Eventually, when BB launches a vegan formulation of Chocolate and Greenberry, assortment packs for all three will likely be offered.   But for now, since this is the only vegan flavor, it’s a stand-alone option.

Part of making Tropical Shakeology completely VEGAN means finding unique (and expensive) protein alternatives to whey isolate.  Beachbody has secured the absolute best protein blend, from entirely plant sources, to make Tropical Shakeology.  The protein used is raw, sprouted, bio-fermented brown rice.  It’s expensive stuff, but so worth it!  It has all 9 essential amino acids and gives the perfect balance for a nutritional supplement.  And unlike most other plant based proteins, this formulation is not grainy or chalky.

The Tropical Shakeology will carry a $10 price increase over the Chocolate and Greenberry (to partially offset the much higher cost of the rare plant protein sources used).  This means a retail price of $129.95 for customers and a coach price of $97.46 for those with coach accounts.  What I understand from corporate is that we are getting a phenomenal deal on this product.  Beachbody’s margin on Shakeology was already lower than that of any of their competitors, and the $10 price increase on Tropical doesn’t even begin to cover the true added expense of the formulation improvements.  Shakeology is expensive because the stuff in it is the best stuff on the planet, and it’s not processed, extracted, or tampered with in any way.  It’s the way nature intended it to be.

And since Shakeology doesn’t use man-made versions or extracts of these awesome food sources, the nutrition is bio-available and more easily absorbed by your body.  In fact, that’s why you may have noticed from time to time that your Shakeology (all flavors) can taste slightly different from bag to bag — it’s because you are eating real whole foods, that have some taste variation from crop to crop.  That’s the beauty of Whole Food Nutrition.
