On a diet and want a low calorie shake? Working out and need an extra boost? Check out this guide to getting the macronutrient (energy, protein, fat, carb) content you need from our shakes.

Lowest Calorie

For the lowest calorie option add 250ml water (or 200ml water and a handful of crushed ice) to 40g of shake. Only 152kcal, 9g carbs and 3g fat but an impressive 23.5g protein.

Extra Protein

To further boost the already impressive nutrient content, make our shakes with 250ml soya milk and add 2 tsp of almond butter. You get a whopping 34g protein and 312 kcal, 17g carbs and 13g fat. A great option for those trying to bulk up.

Which Milk Alternative is Best?

You can change the nutrition of your shake simply by switching milk alternative. Some are superior in protein, energy and micronutrient content. This is especially important to consider if you are vegan. Read our guide to plant based milk alternatives here.

In a nutshell pick soya or oat milk if you are looking for extra energy and protein, opt for a fortified option if you are vegan and make sure you choose one that tastes delicious!

You can buy our Vanilla Shake online from Amazon or Ocado.
