Here are some of the most FAQ’s from Shakeology.com as well as the most common questions we receive from our customers. If you have more questions, please contact us!
What Shakeology Flavors Are Available?
Shakeology is currently available in Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, Greenberry, Vegan Chocolate and Vegan Strawberry flavors and now Latte. Chocolate is by far our customer’s favorite blend but many love the other flavors as well. We are also a huge chocolate fans!
Does Shakeology Taste Good?
Sure does! Or we wouldn’t be drinking it. 🙂 Shakeology is good with just water and ice but is even more delicious when used with many of our Shakeology recipes. One of our favorite blends is 1 cup of almond milk, 2 tbsp. of PB2 powder, 1 banana, 1 scoop (or packet) of chocolate shakeology + a big cup of ice. Blend well. Deliciousness!
Is Shakeology Good for You?
Beachbody has put their heart and soul into the development of this product. We challenge you to find a product on the market that has the high quality ingredients that Shakeology has in one bag. It would take you quite a few supplements and WAY more money to get the nutrients you get in 1 scoop of Shakeology.
Where is Shakeology Available for Purchase?
Shakeology is only available for purchase to those living in the United States and Canada and can only be purchased through a Beachbody coach (us.) Shakeology is also NOT available in retail stores for purchase. To order, go here.

How Much Does Shakeology Cost?
A 30-day supply of Shakeology retails for $129 (USD). Assuming that you are consuming one shake a day, Shakeology is $4.33 (USD) per serving. In our opinion, that is pretty inexpensive considering how hard it is to replace an entire meal for less than that and have it be nutritious. Even your fast food restaurants or local coffee shop can’t beat that price. For the amount of nutrition you are receiving it is well worth the investment into your health.
How Long Does Shakeology Last?
Shakeology comes in a 30-day bulk package so if you consume one shake a day each bag will last you a month. For added convenience, Shakeology also comes in 24 individual serving packets so you can take your meal with you to work and other events on the go!
Is Shakeology Organic?
Beachbody has put every effort into making sure that the ingredients in Shakeology do not contain pesticides, are not destroyed in processing, are produced using the best of the fair trade practices, and have many of the benefits of what is considered “organic.” You might ask why it is not “certified organic?” The experience of the Beachbody development team has shown that sometimes certified organic does not necessarily translate to higher quality. Certifying something can simply jack up the price, especially with ingredients of this quality and quantity. Beachbody decided to focus on making sure the quality and integrity of the product lives up to the promise, without asking you to pay the premium.
Is Shakeology certified as Gluten Free? Is Shakeology allergen free?
Shakeology is not certified gluten free. Although Shakeology is made with gluten-free ingredients, all Shakeology formulas are in a manufacturing facility that also processes known allergens such as soy, milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat (gluten) ingredients. While our manufacturing procedures follows strict, required FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), which include immediate cleaning and breaking down of equipment after every production batch and proper air filtration systems as precautionary measures, the possibility of cross-contamination can never be 100% eliminated, therefore we are required by the FDA, to include a warning that addresses this.
Is Shakeology safe for diabetics?
Since needs vary for each person with diabetes, it is recommended to check with your doctor first. However, since Shakeology is a low-caloric meal replacement, with a lower glycemic index than most meals, it should be acceptable for most people with diabetes. Shakeology has been certified by an independent third-party lab (Glycemic Index Laboratories) as having a low glycemic index of 24. Believe it or not, Shakeology’s GI rating of 24 is much lower than most fruits, some vegetables, and pretty much every processed food ever made. Shakeology helps to keep your sugar levels in balance while providing steady energy (avoiding that sugar spike and crash), supplying nutrition that satisfies, and helping to promote good health. Shakeology is considered safe for general use as a supplement, however if you have a unique or pre-existing medical condition, you should consult your physician prior to using Shakeology.
Shakeology mentions “whole-food” ingredients but how can this be possible if it is a powder?
Shakeology uses several whole-food sources of nutrients, rather than using only synthetic extracts or isolates (like some multivitamin pills do). The benefit of whole-food derived ingredients is that the nutrients are preserved as close to their natural state as possible and are therefore delivered to your body in the most holistic way possible. Your body will better absorb and more efficiently use nutrients from whole-food sources. The process of converting a food from its natural state to a powder, if done incorrectly, can destroy the nutrients in that food. With Shakeology, Beachbody ensures that the highest levels of nutrients are preserved through strict temperature-controlled drying and processing.
Is Shakeology Vegetarian?
Yes, it is 100% vegetarian. The only non-vegetarian ingredient is whey protein, which comes from milk. There are also Vegan flavors that contain plant proteins.
What Type of Protein is Shakeology Made From?
The primary source of protein is from whey, which comes from milk. Whey is one of the most bio-available protein sources. Translation: It rapidly gets to work on repairing your muscles and the amino acids are easily absorbed and used by your body.
Is it OK to drink more than one shake per day?
Yes, but it is not recommended replacing more than 2 meals a day with 2 shakes per day.
Can someone with lactose-intolerance drink Shakeology even though it has 15g of whey protein (derived from milk)?
Because needs vary for each person with lactose-intolerance, it is recommended that you check with your doctor first. However, Shakeology is made with whey protein isolate, which is over 90% pure protein leaving only 10% of the ingredient, or 1.5g, where some lactose can be found. In addition, Shakeology is loaded with digestive enzymes–and Lactase is one of them. Lactase is the enzyme that breaks down lactose and is found in over-the-counter products like Lactaid. We recommend starting with a small dosage of Shakeology, monitor your body’s reaction and, if tolerant, slowly build up to a full dose or split a dosage up throughout the day.
