This is a question that is often asked of Shakeology…
How many calories are in Shakeology?
Well that is a great question, but it all depends on what flavor shakeology and what you might be mixing it with..
|Extra Ingredients >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
|Chocolate Shakeology Calories
|Chocolate Vegan Shakeology Calories
|GreenBerry Shakeology Calories
|Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology Calories
So as you can see the amount of calories in the different Shakeology flavors by themselves do not differ that much. Most people like to toss in a banana or milk and even a teaspoon of almond butter or peanut butter, so just be aware the more you add the more calories you add as well.
I like to add 1tbsp of almond butter, 8-1o Oz Water, Cup of ice and a banana to my Chocolate Shakeology. The Almond butter adds about 101 calories bringing the total to 356 which is just fine by me considering I normally take Shakeology after my workout so it is just what my body is craving. A nice amount of protein and all the vitamins, plus the banana and almond butter to refuel my body!
Hope that gives you an easy to read idea of the Calories that are in Shakeology.
Hey folks I wanted to touch base with this post since my wife is currently breastfeeding our 5 month old son.
I had given her a taste of my Chocolate Shakeology awhile back and she did not like it. Go figure She did not hate it, but she just would rather eat something else lol. So fast forward and I have become a master Shakeology maker with all my new recipes and what not, so I wanted her to try it again. So she took a sip and said “wow that is pretty good“. So then I said “let me make you one”. Sure you can, but wait is that safe for me since I am breastfeeding?
That is a great question.
Is Shakeology safe for Breastfeeding moms?
Before I say anything else here is what it says right on the package
- Consult with a healthcare professional if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or if you have any medical conditions.
With that said. GO TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR!!
Seriously though you do need to speak with your doctor and my wife is going to ask hers’ at the next appointment. From my research I have seen on numerous forums , there are woman who are breastfeeding and drinking Shakeology. Some have noted their kids have had some extreme gas and others have noted their kids are perfectly fine.
What about Dairy?
- One thing to note is “whey protein” which is derived from milk so that could cause an issue in an infant so be aware of that.
What about being Pregnant & drinking Shakeology?
- This is definitely another one for the doctor!
- Most would say it has to much nutrients for the fetus to handle
- In our opinion we would hold off during pregnancy
- Again I am reading and hearing on youtube moms have used it during pregnancy
Our Biggest Takeaway?
Like I said we are waiting to hear from my wifes’ OBGYN about drinking Shakeology and breastfeeding, but for now we are just going to hold off on it. I will continue to take my Shakeology and my wife will in the near future. Either way the Shakeology will be there after she is done breastfeeding and will help her to lose some of that post pregnancy weight and give her the energy she is going to need after chasing two kids under 3 around
My other takeaway is this. Researching on the internet I have found many people who have said they took it during pregnancy and that it was approved by their doctors. So again it really comes down to bringing the ingredients list to your doctor and hearing what they have to say. The bottom line is to talk with your Doctor and not listen to anyone on the internet even if they said they are taking it while pregnant or breastfeeding. We are all different and have different needs so please just talk to the doctor!

Shakeology is 100% gluten-free. Those with celiac disease or gluten allergies have been certified to be safe in using the shakes as a meal replacement or a nutritional supplement.
Those who start out as skeptics of Shakeology turn into enthusiasts by taste alone in many cases. The chocolate flavor tastes like something you would expect to find in a burger joint rather than something that is healthy. It knocks all of the other shake meal replacements away. The greenberry flavor is slightly different in that it is not as sweet and has a stronger flavor with berries in it. It is great for those who do not want something which is overly sweet.
Not only can countless satisfied customers prove that Shakeology is not a scam. You can also trust the more than 100 doctors which have provided their recommendation on the shakes.
