Fit Friday – Herbalife Shakes with Orange Cream
Alright, it’s official! My husband and I are totally into Herbalife – not just consumers, but also distributors (we get a discount that way, hehe). I don’t need to lose weight, but I’m obviously a fan of being healthy and want to maintain my weight. My husband is looking to lose weight, though, and he’s already lost several pounds just eating shakes here and there. Now that we’re doing it regularly, he’ll be shedding the pounds even faster (updates to come)! I’ve heard so many success stories! The other reason, I am so excited about Herbalife is because the shakes taste AMAZING and there are soooo many different options and combinations for different shakes, such as Reece’s Cheesecake, Chocolate-Covered Strawberry, Oatmeal Cookie, Snickers, Apple Pie, etc.! As you may have gathered so far, I love food and love creating and trying new food and recipes, so this is right up my alley.
It all boils down to this…if you could have a delicious, dessert-like shake full of the nutrition you need for a daily meal and under 300 calories, why wouldn’t you?
All shakes use 2 scoops of a chocolate or vanilla protein drink mix and 2 scoops of one of the Healthy Meal mixes. I’m going to show you a few recipes I tried/created recently that use the Orange Cream Healthy Meal mix.
ORANGE SPICED RUM CAKE SHAKE
Total: 280 calories, 35 carbs, 6 fat, 28 protein, 496 sodium, 11 sugar
CARROT CAKE SHAKE
Add ~5 shakes of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg
Total: 294 calories, 30 carbs, 11 fat, 26 protein, 775 sodium, 13 sugar
(I will say that the orange in this is strong. If you’re wanting a more traditional carrot cake flavor, do all french vanilla and add orange extract or something else for the hint of orange.)
CHOCOLATE ORANGE CHEESECAKE SHAKE
Total: 265 calories, 31 carbs, 7 fat, 26 protein, 751 sodium, 11 sugar
By the way, Herbalife doesn’t just do meal-replacement shakes. They have a tea mix that tastes great and is helpful to replace pop (mix with their aloe for added health benefits!), fiber powder, vitamins and other tablets for various things including losing weight, shampoo/conditioner/lotions, etc. Click here to check out our personal website, and if you’re curious or have any questions about the products or what to get, just email me.
