Meal Replacement Reviews; The Top Three

Meal Replacement Reviews

The following are what seem to be the best meal replacement shakes on the market and these are my meal replacement shakes reviews. This takes into consideration price, taste, nutrition content and effectiveness. Read on to find out more!

  1. IdealShake®- Chocolate

IdealShake contains 30 grams of protein per scoop and 30 servings per container. Their chocolate flavor is sweet and made from cocoa powder; having only one gram of sugar per serving. Thus makes it ideal for diabetics and those looking to curb their sugar intake.

IdealShake contains no transfers and even has some healthy fats like Sunflower Seed Oil creamer. It has Vitamin D, A and Whey Protein Isolate; of which there are 11 grams per serving. The shakes are low on sodium and really good for reducing water retention which tends to be a major problem when you are trying to lose weight.

Meal Replacement Reviews

Taste

This has the best taste compared to the other two shakes (as in it is sweeter). There are, however, people who think it is too sweet; too each their own. Some people found that they were able to offset the overly sweet taste by using almond milk instead of dairy milk.

Texture

 The texture tends towards a more gritty feeling but when you blend it up in an electronic blender, it tends to be smoother.

Price

 The price is $1.50 a serving which is very reasonable compared to a lot of other shakes on the market. With all of the nutrients, vitamins, appetite blockers, etc. you are getting, you are for sure getting your moneys worth. Also, there is a 30-day money back guarantee just in case you are not happy with the product. Many claim it is a great alternative to Shakeology and almost 3 times cheaper.

Conclusion

IdealShake’s formula really works to stave off cravings. Taste can be a major motivating factor as well IdealShake has a good taste profile as well. It tastes sweet, which cannot be said for some of the other shakes on the market.

The price is great and you are really getting a bang for your buck.

If you are trying shakes for the first time, then IdealShake is your ideal choice!

  1. Vega One

A container of 29.2 ounces, contains 20 servings. Each serving contains 401 grams of protein! This has the largest scoop of all the shakes in the top three and it has 7 grams more protein than the RAW brand.

Ingredients

The ingredients are all plant-based and are non-GMO certified. It has a low glycemic index with no sugar added, 100% sugar free, no artificial flavors, and vegan to boot. For digestive health, it contains probiotics. Probiotics are also known to help with your immune system.

Taste

The taste is pretty good. It is not as sweet as IdealShake but it is better than the RAW brand. It is sweetened with stevia leaf which means no sugar is added to the formula.

Texture

The texture is okay. They have added no grains and you can add ice to make the texture better.

Price

This meal replacement is $2.54 per serving which makes it the priciest of the top three. However, you are getting the most product for the price.

This is still a very good price considering the other products on the market. You are getting great nutrients, superfoods, vitamins and probiotics- all in a very large scoop.

Conclusion

This is the best product for vegans. It is the best meal replacement available on the market for the vegan diet. It is still a great product even if you are not vegan. It is non-GMO, grain free and packed with superfoods.

  1. RAW Organic Meal by Garden of Life

Contains 33.5 oz per contains (which is 14 servings). Each serving is 34 grams of protein.

Low-sugar

It only has one gram of sugar; making it perfect for diabetics and those who want a low sugar meal replacement.

Nutrients and Digestive System

It has 45 superfoods which provide great nutrients that your body needs to function at optimum levels through the day.

The meal replacement also has great probiotics which aid with digestion and improve the immune system.

Taste

The taste is not so good. I recommend added fruit or ice to your recipes and blending well.

Price

One scoop is $1.25 and two scoops is $2.50. This is very reasonable compared to the other shakes on the market.

Conclusion

RAW has probiotics, superfoods, high protein and great nutrients to get you through your day and your weight loss program. It’s low in sodium which helps with your water retention.

The taste leaves a lot to be desired but you can spruce it up with extra ingredients and the price somewhat makes up for it. If you are vegan, this is a great option for you.

I hope you enjoyed this round up of the best meal replacement reviews. Happy blending!
