I received one or more sample products mentioned above from Natures Sunshine. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I am not a big breakfast eater, but I do like to have some protein in the morning to get my day going. Something quick and easy like SmartMeal Meal Replacement Shakes by Natures Sunshine are great tasting, easy to prepare and give me a full feeling that lasts for hours.
I sampled the “chai” flavor shake, and I love the cinnamon-y flavor. It seems that “chai” is a very popular and trendy flavor right now in coffee shops – chai tea, chai latte, chai smoothies.
For my chai shake, I blended 1/2 cup crushed ice, 8 ounces cold 1% milk, 2 scoops SmartMeal powder, and 2 tablespoons of nonfat french vanilla coffee creamer. This makes a super creamy and ice cold shake – perfect for these warm summer mornings! Of course, SmartMeal shakes can also be made in a shaker bottle using either milk or water. SmartMeal shakes also come in chocolate and vanilla flavors. Try mixing in some yummy fresh or frozen summer fruit for an awesome smoothie, or even some added fiber.
Nutritionally, SmartMeal Chai shakes have 15 grams of protein (which keep you feeling full and curbs your appetite), along with essential amino acids, and provide 35% of the recommended daily value for 18 different vitamins and minerals.
