It’s fun, it’s simple, and it works! There’s an entire community to cheer you on, and tons of online and offline tools to help you achieve your fitness goals whatever they are.”
My husband and I are currently doing a “modified” version of the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge.
“Modified” meaning, one person is supposed to replace two meals a day with the shakes, but we’re splitting the two shakes. Rob has one for breakfast. I usually have a small bowl of Special K cereal and a small glass of grape juice for breakfast, which I think is pretty healthy, so I drink my shake at lunch.
Let me tell you, I’ve had meal replacement/weight-loss/protein shakes before and they’ve been terrible with a capital T… but these are FANTASTIC! They taste like cake batter. The company even boasts on their website that it’s “the shake mix that tastes like a cake mix”… and they’re right! I even like them plain without any added flavoring.
Yesterday, on Facebook, I saw a recipe that turns your shake into a Mocha Mud Slide!
As you can see, this particular recipe calls for chocolate soy milk. I grew up on a dairy farm… if milk doesn’t come from an animal, I’m sorry, it’s not real milk.
So, here are my personal ingredients.
I must say the final product was just delish! As I’ve mentioned before on here… I love mocha frappes from McDonald’s and Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino’s or Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino’s from Starbucks, so I know my frou-frou coffee drinks… this totally rivals them! I love the coffee and chocolate flavors. I could really do without the banana, but I needed to add the fruit.
I posted my breakfast on Facebook this morning and a couple of my friends commented on how good chocolate soy milk actually is, so I guess I’ll have to try it. One also mentioned adding peanut butter to the shake! My friend at work also suggested adding peanut butter for a different flavor, so I’m going to have to try that now, too!
As far as the weight loss portion of the Challenge goes (since that’s the whole purpose of the shakes), I’m unsure. I haven’t set foot on my scale at home to see if I’ve lost anything… I’m too scared to!
