Skinny Co Shake and Smoothie Review
Meal replacement shakes have always been a huge part of my diet. Over the years I’ve tried countless shakes in search of a meal replacement shake that is not only nutritional and high in protein but also has a great taste. When I came across Skinny Shake by SkinnyCo I was exited to try this new shake.
Meal replacement shakes aren’t only for those that are looking to lose weight. You can drink them as a snake between meals so keep you from getting too hungry and to add extra protein to your diet since many women do not consume enough protein. Drinking shakes like this can help keep you from indulging in junk food and consuming empty calories.
Meal replacement shakes are also great for those that have busy days and are looking for a quick way to get the body the sustenance it needs without having to consume a full meal.
I’ll share my experience with Skinny Shake products and give you everything you need to know to decide if this could be the shake perfect for you!
What are Skinny Shakes?
Skinny Shakes are a new line of shakes brought to you by Skinny Co. These shakes are made especially for women to provide them with nutrition for their body to improve health and even lose weight. Unlike many other shakes on the market, Skinny Shake is made with safe and natural ingredients so you can feel confident about what you are putting into your body.
I first started looking into meal replacement shakes when I worked at 9-5 office job. The days leading up to deadlines would be super busy and I often would skip lunch without even realizing it! Meal replacement shakes were really easy and quick to make. They became my go-to “meal” that gave me the nutrients and protein I needed to control my appetite and supply me with steady energy throughout the day.
Skinny Shake Ingredients
The biggest peace of advice I can give to someone looking to add any meal replacement shake to their diet is to not be fooled by good marketing and instead to really learn more about the product and examine the ingredients. The ingredients and nutrition will tell you everything you need to know about a shake.
Here are some of the key ingredients in Skinny Shake and the health benefits associated with each ingredient.
As you can see, these ingredients have amazing health benefits. Not only do these shake contain an impressive assortment of health boosting ingredients but there are also a few things that I am glad they do NOT contain:
How to use Skinny Shakes and Smoothies?
Skinny Shakes come packaged in a powder form. To make your shake you just mix the powder contents of the package with milk in the blender bottle and shake. If you don’t already have a blender bottle, you can add it to your order when you purchase your Skinny Shakes. Blender bottles are a plastic 12oz bottle that has a screw on cap and a secure flip cap. Inside is a “BlenderBall” that is made of stainless steel and will help blend your shake so you don’t have clumps of powder. The Blender Bootle from Skinny Co is dish washer safe.
If your goal is to lose weight, replace one or two meals with a Skinny Shake weight loss shake or a Skinny Smoothie. Skinny Smoothies are plant-based and contain 20 grams of protein.
Skinny Shake and Skinny Smoothie Flavors and Taste
There are two flavors of the Skinny Shakes, chocolate and vanilla. Many of the the shakes I tried in the past had a chalky taste to them. These shakes do not. Both of these flavors taste good on their own. If I’m short on time I just mix a packet of Skinny Shake with almond milk and some ice in a shaker bottle. i always found that meal replacement shakes taste better with ice.
When I have more time on my hands i like to get creative and try new recipes with Skinny Shakes. There are a ton of recipes to choose from on the Skinny Co website at skinnyco.com. I’ve tried a few and my favorite is the Chocolate Mint Skinny Shake. The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe include: 1/2 frozen banana, 1 tablespoon coca powder, 3-6 fresh mint leaves, 1 scoop of Chocolate Skinny Shake, 2/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup water, and 1-2 ice cubes. Simply blend all the ingredients in a blender and all water and/or ice to reach your desired consistency.
You can also get creative and make your own blends. A simple recipie that I came up with was to blend together a banana, 1 packet of chocolate Skinny Shake, a couple table spoons of peanut butter (yay more protein!), 1 cup of almond milk and 1/2 a cup of ice.
In the summer when I’m making fruit based smoothies I plan on adding Skinny Smoothie powder for protein and extra nutrition. I’m really excited to try Skinny Smoothie powder in my Strawberry and Banana smoothies!
