As a busy mom, I love finding products that provide a quick, healthy solution for a meal or snack. Of course, I look for solutions that uses only pure ingredients – nothing artificial!
Disclosure: I received complimentary product to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
Shake the Crave is a 100% Pure Nutrition Shake Mix. It contains only pure ingredients – no worries about GMO’s, artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, preservatives, binders, etc. These are all scary ingredients in may “diet shakes” or meal replacement shakes. I, personally, have never understood the concept of using unhealthy ingredients in a product that is supposed to improve your health! Needless to say, I appreciate that Shake the Crave doesn’t include these scary ingredients!
For my review, I received a container of Shake the Crave Chocolate. (Vanilla is available as well.)
I am excited about the ingredients it does contain! Shake the Crave Chocolate has organic non-fat dry milk, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa powder, organic coconut powder, and an electrolyte blend. It has the ingredients to promote overall wellness, feel more satisfied, and feel fuller longer. It is recommended to use Shake the Crave at breakfast, lunch, or in between meals. I personally prefer to use it either at breakfast or in between meals.
There are many ways you can prepare the shakes – simply blended with whole milk, 2%, 1%, or skim milk, almond milk, or coconut milk; blended with ice for a thicker shake; or even with fruits and other healthy ingredients added as well! The instructions only include mixing it in a blender, so I was nervous to try it without the blender, but it’s something I’m bound to try because we just moved, and I don’t know where our blender is now! I honestly prefer NOT using a blender unless I am adding ice or other ingredients for convenience sake. I’m not sure how well it mixes without one, though, since I didn’t try it yet.
The taste of this shake, to me, is just like drinking chocolate milk. I enjoy it! It is nice and smooth and has just a hint of sweetness. I know some may be confused why sugar is used, but I appreciate that they use organic can sugar and not artificial sweeteners! They have a response to this question:
We have accented this product with natural cane sugar and with milk, coconut powder, and vanilla giving you a total of 20 grams of sugar for the best possible result. This type of sugar converts to glucose quickly, which fuels ATP production in your body. ATP is what gives your body the energy to think, move, perform – it is the currency of your body and without it you die. This formulation will give you a smooth energy boost and help keep you full longer, plus it tastes great.
When I use Shake the Crave, I notice a reduction in cravings – particularly sweets, which is what hinders my weight loss (and health). I love that it not only offers me a chocolate, sweet taste, which I crave, but also does help me feel fulfilled for longer. Plus, I just feel better. My digestive system works better (which can be a problem for me), and I feel more alert. I definitely find it beneficial!
