Which Nutritional Meal Replacement Shake Is Best? — 6 Comments

  1. I don’t use any of these products. Instead, I make a protein shake from nuts, yogurt and fruit with flax and unsalted sunflower seeds. I sweeten it with honey and blend in a blender till smooth. No preservatives or gluten in this mix. Healthy too.

    • I have done that myself Annie, using probiotic greek yogurt, berries, kale, flax, chia and almond or coconut milk. Very good and almost too much to finish! Sounds like we’re on the same page. We need to take care of ourselves, don’t we? You’re in Canada right? I hear stories of their health care system.

      • Yes I am in Ontario Canada. The health system is not bad and I don’t have to use it much due to the fact that I look after my health and don’t need to use it. At 68 years of age my doctor still tells me that I am far too healthy. I teased him that it means I don’t have to bother him when I am in good health. It is good though to know if I need medical attention I don’t have to try and find out how I’m going to pay for it.

        • Annie! I would have never guessed you to be 68! Good for you and good for anyone that knows how important it is to do what we absolutely can to take care of ourselves.

  2. I have personally tried all 3 of these products.

    In my opinion the Vi shake made me very nauseas and has a strong aftertaste from the artificial sweetener I presume. I am not an advocate of artificial sweeteners, additives, synthetics or soy and this shake is loaded with all of them.

    The Isagenix shake has good ingredients, from good sources. It is pretty good tasting however it has a little too much sugar for my liking. I believe they have reformulated and taken it down a little but with 11 grams in one serving, that’s still too high. Also a little pricier than others but at least they do not use artificial sweeteners!

    The Nourish is by far the absolute best tasting shake I have found. Being that it’s loaded with all natural ingredients, has fruit and vegetable servings and flax and is very healthy, the flavor was a welcoming surprise. I am used to drinking shakes that are barely palatable in order to receive optimum nutrition. But with the Nourish, it’s actually favorable! I usually add a few slices of frozen banana and a dash of cinnamon and use with 8 oz of unsweetened plain almond milk for a delicious, creamy and very satisfying shake. Other recipe’s I have put together are 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and 3 slices of frozen banana for a chocolate banana treat without adding too many calories, maybe 40 at the most, 30 for the banana and 10 for the cocoa. Also adding 1 teaspoon of peanut butter along with the cocoa is another low calorie and healthy option!

    Anyway in my opinion the Nourish is by far the most cost effective, has high quality ingredients and is delicious!
