Shake the Crave – Shake Mix blog review


* Disclaimer / Disclosure: I received a free sample to facilitate my review. This post reflects my honest, personal opinion and experience with the product which may differ from yours. Product information courtesy of the sponsor. No monetary compensation was provided for this post.

My Thoughts-
I LOVE having a healthy shake for breakfast. I’m always looking for a great tasting shake that gives me the energy I need for the day, so when I was asked to test out Shake the Crave, I was very excited. I was only given two sample pack, so this will be about the preparation and the flavor and texture.

I usually added a bunch of items to my shakes like natural peanut butter, bananas and raspberries, but for this review I used just 1 cup unsweetened almond milk and the shake mix. The instructions say to blend on low for 20 seconds then on high for another 3 seconds. Then you let it sit for 60 seconds, then bland for another 5 seconds and finally let sit for 60 more seconds to allow the powder to rehydrate. It seems like a lot of directions but really it goes by quickly while I’m prepping food for my kids at the same time.

(sorry for the low quality photo and that my cup is almost empty. I was enjoying my drink so much that I almost forgot to take a photo to share with you all.)

The taste is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It has a nice rich chocolate flavor. I said to my husband it was like drinking a yummy, high class chocolate milk. Once I read the ingredients I understood why. It’s made with organic cocoa powder, organic coconut powder, organic non-fat dry milk, and organic cane sugar, plus added electrolyte blend. It’s all natural, organic and and packed with flavor. Not only did it taste great, I also felt full till lunch time with this.

DO I want to purchase and try more? YES! Would I recommend this product to others? Yes, because I think it tastes great and would make a great meal replacement. Do I think about this flavor often? You bet, I crave chocolate a lot and this fills that desire very well.
