Café Latte Shakeology’s Top 5 Q&A 

from the Shakeology blog

Q: Does Café Latte contain more caffeine than the other Shakeology flavors?

A: NOT AT ALL! The caffeine levels in Café Latte are exactly the same as they are in ALL of our Shakeology flavors. So even though it tastes like coffee, Café Latte contains 75% less caffeine than an 8 oz. cup o’ Joe.

Q: How does it taste?

A: Absolutely amazing! It’s incredibly rich, robust, and creamy with hints of Café and notes of Latte. It truly does taste just like a frozen coffee drink you’d get from a coffee shop, but Café Latte Shakeology has dense superfood nutrition as well.

Q: What makes Café Latte so special?

A: It’s formulated with WHOLE Coffee Fruit*—a coveted superfood powerhouse that’s native to regions of Mexico and India. Coffee fruit is the red fleshy fruit that surrounds what we know to be the coffee bean! Not only does Café Latte taste great, but the use of the entire plant also minimizes Shakeology’s carbon footprint.

Q: What if I don’t want to give up some of the other Shakeology flavors that I love?

A: Then get the Barista Triple Combo Box. This pack contains 24 single-serving packets of Café Latte, Vanilla, and Chocolate (8 per flavor), so you can mix and match your shakes like a true barista.

Q: When does it launch?

A: JANUARY 11, 2016!** While we’re not taking pre-orders, we are stocked and ready to start shipping as soon as we launch. So put a reminder in your calendar to secure your stash on that magical day.

Italian Turkey Meatball Soup with Quinoa

My family loves Italian Wedding Soup with it’s little meatballs and Parmesan cheese! Now that I’m cooking healthier and clean I modified my old recipe with this one!

Here are the main differences in the the soup. I replace breadcrumbs with oatmeal and the pasta with quinoa.

You can bake the meatballs and add them to the soup, but I have also boiled them right in the broth with carrots and celery. 

Lastly, as far as salt goes I have been using pink Himalayan salt in all of my cooking. I use Mineralize from Beachbody as seen below.

 

Italian Turkey Meatball Soup with Quinoa

  • Servings: 8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
Ingredients:

  • 20oz ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon pink himalayan salt or Mineralize
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder or 1/2 finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon dried basil and/or oregano
  • 2 tablespoons all-natural tomato sauce
  • 32oz chicken broth
  • 32 oz water
  • 2 cups chopped spinach or kale
  • 1-2 carrots, diced, optional
  • 1 celery stalk, diced, optional
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • grated Parmesan cheese for topping

Preparation:
Pour broth into a soup pot over high heat. Gently combine turkey, salt, pepper, onion, garlic, oatmeal, tomato sauce, and basil in bowl. When broth is boiling, drop in meatballs. Stir in optional carrots and celery, lemon zest and quinoa. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook at a slow boil for 20 – 30 minutes or until quinoa and veggies are tender, stirring frequently. Serve sprinkled with cheese, optional but tasty!
