Herbalife Banana Cream Shake

Thursday, October 25, 2018
Today's post is a little late in the day because I've had so many items to photograph for my upcoming Christmas gift guides but today's post is all about the brand new *Herbalife Banana Cream Healthy Meal Replacement Shake. I've worked with Herbalife before reviewing their Cookies and Cream Shake which you can read if you want more information on that flavour.

I was very lucky to be sent their latest flavour alongside one of the most unique and interesting PR package additions I've ever received - a real banana plant! I have quite a few succulents in our home office and I've managed to keep them alive for a couple of years but so far my poor little banana plant isn't doing so well in the chilly autumn weather even though I'm keeping it in the warmest room of the house. The plant is from The Gluttonous Gardener and it's their 'banana tree kit' (£34) which I'd definitely recommend as a complete kit and an unusual gift this christmas!
The Herbalife Banana Cream Shake comes in the same packaging as the first one I tried and it contains much of the same nutritional features such as it's vegan, gluten free, it contains 25 vitamins/minerals and it is a source of fibre as well as being a good source of protein - 18g of protein per serving which is fantastic.

As a vegetarian and mostly vegan, I try to monitor my protein intake, which I do with the Lifesum app and on the days when it's a little low (they are few and far between) these shakes are a great lunch or breakfast option with the added benefit of being protein rich that in turn makes it quite filling. Speaking of the Lifesum app, I cannot recommend it enough if you are wanting to lose weight or to keep that weight off as it has helped me so much!
The flavour of the cookies and cream one was very nice (I'd definitely recommend it as a close second), the chocolate on it's own was ok but this one might be my new favourite as it is very creamy, it has a nice banana flavour and it is the least powdery of the three I've tried although that might be due to me shaking the bottle for a good minute or two to make sure everything is mixed well. You really need to get the Herbalife or general shake bottles that are designed for products like this and shake them well otherwise they'll be powdery and not very pleasant. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this new flavour!

Have you tried anything from Herbalife? Would you try these meal replacement shakes?

  1. I personally don't like bananas or anything banana flavoured and due to my health don't use shakes to replace meals but I'm more a lot of people will find this post useful 🌸✨

  7. Banana is my favourite, I don't do meal replacement shakes, I don't see them as healthy enough to be a meal.

  14. This is such a nice shake, I love that it's not overpowering in flavour as I'm not a banana fan, it tastes amazing with honey!
