Contact me if you have any questions about Shakeology, the Ultimate Reset, or about joining one of my Beachbody Challenge groups that start monthly! coachwhitney.com myultimatereset.com/wcarlstone myshakeology.com/wcarlstone let it sit for 10 minutes and the grittiness will go away (kind of like undercooked rice having some more time to cook - so says Coby Mitchell...the amazing regional sales manager with beachbody. let's take a moment to review WHAT was modified from the original Chocolate formula, and WHY we chose to change what was a pretty darn amazing shake to begin with!... Almost 4 years have passed since our first Chocolate formula was created. Because Darin Olien and the formulation team consistently look to innovate and improve Shakeology, we have provided an even healthier 2012 formula to replace the 2009 version. With that in mind, here's all the goodness you are now getting in the new formulation: LESS FRUCTOSE! Yes, fructose is natural, but bottom line: it's sugar. We lowered the amount of fructose and replaced some of it with more nutritious, sweet superfood ingredients Coconut Flower Nectar and Luo Han Guo. MORE FIBER! The benefits of fiber are undisputed. By adding some plant protein to the mix (the majority of protein still coming from whey isolate), we've raised the amount of fiber per serving from 3 grams to 6 grams! 4 NEW SUPERFOODS! Along with the Luo Han Guo and Coconut Flower Nectar, Moringa and Himalayan Salt have been added. Moringa is one of the most nutrient-dense plants in the world, providing a multitude of vitamins, minerals, protein, antioxidants. And Himalayan salt is a "healthy" salt, containing more than 70 trace minerals! We do recognize that to some, the Chocolate New Superfood formula tastes different than the original version. But, considering the fact that all these superfoods don't taste awful is a huge win. Just as you likely had to play around with the original Chocolate Shakeology to find your perfect, tasty "recipe", it may take a few days or even a week for you to find the right balance of flavor. Experiment with different levels of ice, your favorite fruits, liquids, nut butters to get the 'right' combination. PLUS, you'll have the knowledge that this new Chocolate is really superior from a nutrition standpoint. For anyone who thinks that the taste is less sweet (for some customers, this is actually a positive), or less "chocolatey," our superfans have already found ways to address the issue. Here are some things you can try: Using chocolate almond milk or vanilla coconut milk Adding a dollop of vanilla yogurt Experimenting with a bit more PB2 peanut butter powder or spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. You can always add a touch of natural sweetener like honey, agave or maple syrup Everyone experiences the taste change differently and we are here to help you find your 'sweet' spot in terms of taste. Below are some great new recipes that you can try with the new Chocolate Superfood formula!
