Here are some interesting examples you can use to create a Shakeology alternative.
Personally, I believe buying Shakeology is better than trying to make something similar to Shakeology because creating something that’s equivalent to Shakeology would take a lot of work, cost more, and not even come close to tasting as good as Shakeology.
Below are a few ways you can create a Shakeology substitute in order to get close to the same nutritional value of Shakeology.
Shakeology Alternative 1: Buy All the Shakeology Ingredients Separately
Beachbody went out to see how much it would cost you to but the Shakeology ingredients separately… And then had Tony Horton reveal the cost of buying all the ingredients in Shakeology separately… Check out the video below:
Judging by the video above, Shakeology is looking to be pretty tough to duplicate. Let’s see what else we can do….
Shakeology Alternative 2: Eat more Fruits & Vegetables!
Another Shakeology alternative is to eat a large amount of fruits and vegetables… This shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish, right?
Check out what you would have to eat below in order to get the same nutrition as ONE glass of Shakeology:
- A bowel of Exotic Food (including: Golgi & Acai): $4.40
- 10 cups Raw Cauliflower: $4.30
- 4 cups Raw Broccoli: $3.94
- 4 cups Uncooked Mushrooms: $8.97
- 4 cups Non-fat Yogurt: $3.49
- 4 cups Red Radishes: $5.16
- 3 cups Romaine Lettuce: $2.99
- 1 cup Peas: $1.09
- 7 Whole Carrots: $ 1.99
- 3 Raw Onions: $2.91
- 1 Shot of wheat Grass: $1.95
While I believe in eating healthy, I would find it difficult to eat all of the above to get the same nutrition as one Shakeology shake.
Would you rather spend $1,235.70 a month on the above ingredients or purchase the tasty Shakeology shake?
Shakeology Substitute 3: Forget the Fruits and Vegetables, How about some Supplements?
A fellow Beachbody Coach, Blake Warrington, did an experiment. Blake wanted to see if he could create a homemade version of Shakeology by going to the grocery store and buying some ingredients. This is what he came up with…
Look at all those ingredients!!!
Below is a picture of Blake’s receipts totaling $483.12! Looks like a Shakeology shake is not only cheaper but much more convenient…
This is what Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler had so say about this experiment- “Awesome demonstration Blake. And even if someone did assemble all that, I am willing to bet that most if not all of those ingredients are not sourced at the same high standards as we use, and they are likely processed so they can stay on the shelf longer. That means the potent properties are cooked and killed before they ever get into the bottle. Not Shakeology – as close to fresh as it comes without picking it off the tree! And do you know how hard it would be to make that $481 concoction taste good? You would throw it all away after one sip. Not Shakeology. I am so proud of this product!“
What would you rather do? Take tons of supplements everyday that will cost you over $483.12 per month, or buy Shakeology?
Final Thoughts about Creating a Shakeology Alternative:
Creating a Shakeology alternative is not impossible as we can see above.
However, creating a Shakeology alternative is costly and often you will need to take in several low quality supplements or digest a lot of fruits and vegetables to get the same benefits from one simple glass of Shakeology.

I have been drinking shakology everyday for 5 years now. No more pain in knees or shoulders, blood work is better than perfect, BP 112 over 70. I’m 45 years old do physical labor everyday and don’t even take so much as an Advil. It does work, but takes time. I have friends and family drinking it too with the same results. You’ll notice after 6 moths blood work starts to improve. After 18 months very noticeable inprovement. Then the aching joints start to go away. I used to get injections in my shoulder and are oxyicodone for pain. GONE!!! Couldn’t drive more than an hour knee would stiffen up and had to stop. GONE!!!! And no more acid reflux either.
I’ve had great success with Shakeology. It has an amazing blend of powerful nutrients including enough protein. For a bit of extra protein I add a little greek yogurt. Train your body to metabolize burning fat naturally and flush toxins naturally. There is no such thing as a miracle drink or pill. Learn to eat healthier! With Shakeology, healthier eating habits, exercise and lots of water I’ve lost 55 pounds in 4 months, maintain and feel great. It’s about a permanent healthier lifestyle. Again no such thing as a miracle drink or pill. These products are just tools in your journey to health & fitness.
I had ordered the 21 day Fix from BeachBody. I stuck with it for about 10 days, but because of intensity of the workouts, I could only perform about half of the exercises. So it did not work for me as far as exercise, but the diety part with the colored containers is a good way to develop better nutrition. I ordered a 7 single serving variety pack of Shakeology to try all the flavors. The new Caffe Latte is very good. The regular chocolate was not too good, have an after taste. The greenberry is just nasty, though I drank it. The strawberry was okay, I threw some blueberries in it. All the shakes require a blender so it is not convenient to take to work or on to travel. I do seem to have more energy when I drink one. I will probably order a bag of Caffe Latte. I am not a Coach.
Shakeology is not meant to be a protein shake or a diet/fat burning shake. It’s meant to ensure that your body receives ALL of the vitamins and nutrients and minerals that it needs to function at its very best. It’s better to think of it as a really badass multivitamin and protein supplement than as anything else. Except that it comes in an easy shake form so that it can replace a meal and help keep you full, unlike a regular multivitamin. It helps with weight loss when people use it as a meal replacement or drink it instead of eating junk, but it’s not magic and doesn’t cause you to lose weight just because you drank it after the pizza you ate. The entire Beachbody company is about exercising daily, eating healthy, whole foods and using shakeology to fill in any gaps in nutrition. People looking for a magic pill or powder will be disappointed. People who realize there are no short cuts to a healthy lifestyle understand and love shakeology.
I found Shakeology to be exceptional! I am not a coach or distributor, just a person wanting to lose some pounds and be healthy. I did a bit of research myself, too, and found that, while most people consider Shakeology a “meal replacement” in fact, I would not consider it to be that at all! It is a meal “supplement!” Great vitamins and minerals! After just 2 days of drinking just ONE shake a day I felt great! As I continued that week, just one shake a day, I found the sweet cravings gone! I only drank the chocolate flavor, and, because I wanted to add a little more protein, I stirred in a TBSP of peanut butter. Yum! We also have “Isagenix” in our house, so I was able to do a comparison there. Isagenix IS a protein meal replacement! Shakeology is not, in my opinion. It is a really great product. Vitamins and minerals from all plant sources. Very good. Can’t wait to get my next bag! (yes, it does cost more, but it is very much worth it!)
