The “best meal of the day” will soon be getting SO MUCH better!
You all know I love my morning coffee, so much so that we would make a whole pot and then let some cool so that I could put some into my chocolate shake for later in the day!
Well, pretty soon I’m not going to need to add my precious coffee to my delicious shake, because they are coming out with a brand new flavor in January, CAFE LATTE!
Café Latte Shakeology uses the whole coffee fruit rather than just the bean, and that little superfruit is one nutrient-dense berry!
What is the coffee fruit?
The coffee bean, which is lovingly roasted and ground for our morning java, grows inside a red fruit known as coffee berry or coffee fruit. Traditional coffee production doesn’t use the berry because, just like any other fruit, it’s perishable.
The berry is the healthiest part of the plant, but sadly it usually ends up in a compost heap.
Not only is the coffee fruit packed with antioxidants – it has more than green tea, blueberries, raspberries and pomegranates – but studies have shown that this little-used superfruit can help improve cognitive function, essentially boosting our brain power along with our energy, endurance and ability to fight free radicals that can damage skin cells and speed up aging.
I love the fact that by putting the whole fruit to use there is less waste, and the the fruit – indigenous to India and Mexico – is still picked by hand, so Shakeology also helps encourage sustainable farming practices that do even more to protect the environment.
Does Café Latte Shakeology have more caffeine than other flavors of Shakeology?
No. The caffeine levels are the same as those in all other Shakeology flavors.
Just FYI, all the Shakeology formulations have low levels of naturally-occurring caffeine. Beachbody uses whole ingredients in the shakes and one of the ingredients is whole leaf, green tea. The chocolate formulas contain natural cocoa (cacao), which also has a low level of naturally-occurring caffeine.
Why drink Shakeology in the first place?
I drink Shakeology every single day, not only because it tastes great, but for the nutrients it gives my body, plain and simple. Shakeology is a delicious meal-on-the-go packed with protein, superfoods, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, adaptogens and phytonutrients. You don’t need to know what all those fancy words mean, because here’s what those things do for you:
- Help build and repair muscles
- Reduce hunger and food cravings
- Aids digestion
- Promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Helps maintain a strong immune system
- Helps increase energy
- Helps decrease inflammation
Here is a little bit about MY STORY and why drink Shakeology every day.
