35 Vanilla Shakeology Recipes

Think Vanilla is basic? These Vanilla Shakeology recipes prove that it is anything but. In fact, light and creamy Vanilla Shakeology is the most versatile Shakeology flavor. If you’ve never heard of Shakeology before, it’s Beachbody’s delicious superfood protein shake!

Vanilla Shakeology is made with real organic vanilla beans from Madagascar and on it’s own it tastes like a luscious vanilla milkshake (and who doesn’t want one of those?). But, blend it with anything, from fresh fruit and nut butters to tea and spices, and it will take on and complement the flavors of the ingredients.

Each of these Vanilla Shakeology recipes uses a few ingredients – and a little creativity – to make decadent smoothies that taste like orange creamsicles, minty candy canes, or gourmet salted caramel. And, you can make almost any of these shakes vegan by using vegan ingredients and Vanilla Vegan Shakeology. (More of chocoholic? Indulge in these tempting Chocolate Shakeology Recipes.)
