What is 18 Shake?
This protein powder is sweet and creamy and mixes like a dream. I have tried just about every flavor — and just recently tried the cookies and cream! Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs: Both shakes use whey protein. Laura Corn verified owner — August 28,

Its fills me up for sure. Elizabeth Arens verified owner — March 8, Caramel squares and cookies n cream are my favorite flavors! Caroline Ryan verified owner — March 8, The Chocolate flavor is my favorite.
This protein wow just WOW. I absolutley love all of the flavors. Each time I order protein I order a different flavor. I have yet to be disappointed with this company and their products! And the best protein that I have had that is grass whey and it does last a long time! Emma verified owner — March 8, The birthday cake is to die for and I use it in so many ways mixed with plain greek yogurt, for my protein french toast, baking.
I have tried a TON of other powders. Nothing comes close to taste and results. All the recipes are a huge hit as well.
Versatile and great taste. You will not be disappointed. Carolynn Jones verified owner — March 9, I have tried almost every flavour and was their fail every single one tastes amazing! The quality of the product is always out standing and the customer service is great! Stephanie verified owner — March 9, Hillary Beyerlein verified owner — March 9, This is a great protein shake!
I lift about 5 times a week and this has not let me down with recovery. Will continue to use! Alexa Siweckyj verified owner — March 10, All of the flavors they offer are so smooth going down. Never had an issue with texture. Plus the 24g of protein is a major seller! All of these protein powders are amazing!! My favorite right now is the Birthday Cake, it tastes like cake batter, and is just amazing!!
Kaela — March 13, The flavor is spot on and literally tastes like a vanilla milkshake. I like to have mine 2 ways, with banana, pineapple and cashew milk or with banana, peanut butter, cashew milk and a dash of cinnamon. Add ice for the perfect protein milkshake?. The only protein I will ever purchase! Thanks for making such great products! Mandy Hazen verified owner — March 15, All flavors are amazing.
Court verified owner — March 15, The peanut butter chocolate and vanilla are awesome! Cinnamon Bun is also great as mix in for breakfast foods like oatmeal, pancakes…. Kaitlyn Hoss verified owner — March 15, Apollo is my favorite protein!! It mixes so thick and creamy.
Seriously the best protein powder I have ever tried. Not grainy at all, and the taste is out of this world. Totally recommend this to everyone I can. Elizabeth Fairchild verified owner — March 16, Well, I love this protein. Way to go on this one. Samantha Petrone verified owner — March 24, This powder is unlike any other! I am big on texture and this one mixes so well in a blender bottle with just a few shakes. The flavors are even better than you can imagine and match exactly what they description says.
Gina verified owner — March 24, I use it for everything, from making frosting to baking cakes, muffins, breakfast foods. It tastes so good!!! My other favorite is the Birthday cake! Kelsey verified owner — March 24, Birthday cupcakes is so yummy and chocolate lava tastes like Hersheys chocolate milk!
I LOVE this flavor! Working out is my favorite time of day because I look forward to having my protein shake after. I normally blend my shake with a little ice to make it thicker. I also make my shake with almond milk to make it a little sweeter and its amazing! Love love love this product and will definitely be ordering more! Georgia verified owner — March 27, Alejandra Rodriguez verified owner — March 29, I feel so full and satisfied until the next morning, I work out at 7pm everyday.
Chelsea Hellen — March 30, Lisa Daniel verified owner — March 31, This is by far my favorite protein powder. It has a higher amount of protein per serving than other protein powders on the market, and the taste. It does not have that chalky taste and smells really good. This protein also tastes good when heated up. I love making a hot protein drink during the cold months with the vanilla protein. We love this protein, my boyfriend is a picky eater or drinker I should say especially when it comes to proteins, he thinks they all taste chalky but this is his and mine favorite tasting stuff.
I also love that it has both fast and slow digesting proteins to keep me fuller and fueled for longer! Hilary verified owner — March 31, CGmom verified owner — April 2, Taste is fantastic, although a little thick. It does seem to have some bloating and gas side effects for me though. I have tried many over the years and finally feel like Ive found one I can stick with. Mixes well with just water. Also great when added with other stuff to make a smoothie!
I love Unico products so much and the chocolate peanut butter did not disappoint! It is hands down the tastiest protein I have ever had, and still has amazing macros! I work out twice a day, so it is really important to me to have a protein I enjoy, and this is it. I have tried so many other brands and none of them come close to Unico! Best protein powder I have ever used, it taste just like a yummy desert, or to me a malt which I love love love ice cream and this is a great substitute!!!
Tanya verified owner — April 3, Lan verified owner — April 4, Amanda Morgan verified owner — April 4, Every flavor is smooth and tastes amazing.. Thank you UNICO for saving those of us with sweet tooths from self destruction via cookies and brownies. This curbs my sweet appetite every. Rae Chartier verified owner — April 4, I seriously cannot live without this stuff!
It is just pure, delicious flavor. I take it after workouts or just as a quick meal in a pinch. Ylime verified owner — April 5, After finding your products via several Instagram endorsers, I was initially skeptical as I find most social media endorsements to feel more like a scam with individuals only pushing products for their own financial gain.
After reading more about the Apollo Protein Shakes, I decided to give it a try. Nikki verified owner — April 5, Hands down the best tasting protein I have ever taken! My fav flavor is the Molten Chocolate Lava Shake!
Hannah Scott verified owner — April 6, By far, the BEST protein powder. I got the birthday cake flavor and it is amazing. The fact that I only mix it with almond milk and it still tastes amazing, says a lot about it!
Shaina Doll verified owner — April 9, I purchased the chocolate peanut butter protein powder. I have a shake for breakfast every morning and it holds me over until lunch.
Bight this product for the first time in the recommendation of a Freiburg. This one, though, is amazing. I tried the chocolate peanut butter and it was great so I decided to try out the birthday cake and OMG!! It literally tastes like cake batter. It mixes well, the macros are great. The macros are awesome and it tastes very good too. I got the birthday cake flavor, which is a little too sweet for me, but I still like it.
I think I will be trying vanilla next time. I highly recommend it! Ashley K verified owner — April 11, Absolutely LOVE the gooey frosted cinnamon roll! Andrea Green verified owner — April 11, The protein is good with milk or water, which is rare. Overall, great product for drinking and eating! Brooke Harmening verified owner — April 12, You will be too!
Nora verified owner — April 15, Aimee verified owner — April 17, Easy to mix,l even with just water. Creamy and not a weird artificial flavor. Courtney verified owner — April 17, Super cute packaging and its delicious! I am obsessed with Apollo protein powder.
I am the type of person that prefers to mix my protein powder with water, so that actually makes the texture and flavor important for me when picking a brand. When I buy anything from Unico, I also buy a couple sample packets of Apollo to have a little variety. Emma Paul verified owner — April 18, Love this protein shake flavors and performance. My goal has been more toning, but I did gain muscle mass after I started using this in my work out.
I bought the birthday cake flavor and its seriously everything I could want in a protein powder. You have a lifelong customer! Katie Almand verified owner — April 19, I absolutely love this protein. Channon Fair verified owner — April 19, The chocolate peanut butter flavor is delicious!
My only concern is the price, I wish it was a little more affordable. Oh and I love the fitness blog-diet and nutrition section of the website! I wish they posted recipes using the protein powders more frequently though. All in all, a great product!
Stacy Jantz verified owner — April 19, Ive tried others but I keep coming back because nothing even comes close! Every flavor is perfect. I love how the Molten Chocolate reminds me of Nesquik that I had as a kid, most chocolate protein tastes kinda plain. So much love for Apollo! Kristen Mohamed verified owner — April 20, I changed it up and bought the new caramel flavor and was not disappointed.
This stuff mixes up great in smoothies or just with water. Will never stop buying! Eliana verified owner — April 20, The birthday cake cupcake protein is so good! Would definitely get it again! Canikah Lockett — April 21, The banana flavor wasnt my favorite. It taste like medicine. I really want to try the vanilla. Also I had gas after drinking this not sure why. Sarah — April 22, I was satisfied with the size of the container, it was reasonably priced.
I definitely recommend this product. I bought the salted Carmel and instantly regretted my decision. It literally has no flavor and is also very gritty like sand. Not impressed in the least bit. So, I tried the cookies and creme protein powder and it is delicious! I have ordered that flavor twice, but this time I tried the chocolate! It is still good, but not as flavorful and not as delicious as the cookies and creme.
It is an average chocolate taste and texture, and I would say that what would make it better would be a richer chocolate flavor!
I think that would make it 5 stars! So for me, cookies and creme is a 5 star, and chocolate is more of an average 4. I played it safe and got the Vanilla Milkshake flavor and it was SO yummy!! The consistency is perfect and the taste is amazing! Allie verified owner — April 24, Estee verified owner — April 24, I even use it to make myself cookie dough.
I got the birthday cake flavor. LOVE my unico protein!! Tried the birthday cake flavor — amazing! This does not have that, and really tastes like birthday cake! The taste is awesome! Even with just water! Thank you so much for this product! Karie verified owner — April 26, Caramel Flavor tastes just like caramel. The flavor is good.
The energy you get is great and you feel full. I absolutely love this protein powder! Samantha Harrell verified owner — April 29, I have tried a lot of different protein powders and this is by far my favoirte. It mixes well with no grit or chalky flavor. The vanilla milkshake is true to its flavore name.
I ordered both the chocolate peanut butter and gooey cinnamon roll and they both taste incredible. Not only does the protein taste amazing, but the ingredients are what really made me look in to this brand. The grass fed whey along with casein make this a great protein shake for any time of the day or post workout. Cant wait to try more flavors!
They actually taste good! Meagan Price verified owner — May 2, Best tasting protein powder ever. Thank you for making such amazing products!!!
Sierra Kuckein verified owner — May 2, Tastes so good just with water or in oats or in baking or smoothies…. Crystal Torres — May 3, Brittanyjbecker verified owner — May 4, I have tried both the Salted Caramel and the Birthday Cake and they are incredible! Lindsey verified owner — May 7, Like this protein powder! A little high in carbs compared to others , but tastes great. Also, the scooper seems to be a bit large, measure the powder using a scale to get accurate gram count!
I absolutely love this protein powder. I have tried protein powders before and have never enjoyed the flavor OR the consistency. I ordered the Cookies and Creme flavored one and absolutely love it. Genuinely tastes like a CandC milkshake. The second best part, is how long it leaves me feeling satisfied.
I drink it in the morning and I feel satisfied until lunch time which is awesome! Hope verified owner — May 8, Will definitely be buying again.
I got chocolate peanut butter and when I mix with a little milk it really tastes like a milkshake! The frosted cinnamon roll is to die for. I mix this with milk and the texture is smooth and easy to get down. This protein keeps me full for a long period of time. Bailey verified owner — May 10, Sara Bijan verified owner — May 13, Very clean taste and amazing macros. The birthday cake flavor is my favorite! Ana — May 14, Hunger and craving curbing like no other!!
I have the fastest metabolism and am constantly snacking every 3 hours and one scoop with water I swear fills me up for over 5 hours!!! Not to mention the flavor are heavenly! Hunger and craving curbing like no other! A single scoop keeps me full for up to 5 hours, and I swear I have the fastest metabolism ever!
Amazing taste and wide variety of flavors, excited to continue to try more! I feel full, it lasts a long time. It never feels like I am truly replacing a meal. I am enjoying the taste and having what feels like a real meal. I will continue to purchase this product for a long time. I am incredibly happy with it. The delicious vanilla pure protein powder was very tasty. I loved making banana protein pancakes with it and the flavor was the best protein powder that I have had without that super protein taste.
It was very fluffy in the shakes And great quality. I have never been a salted caramel fan but this product is aaamazing!!! I absolutely love it! Shauna verified owner — May 19, I liked the taste of the powder but I was really disappointed in the packaging. Birthday Cake Cupcake is absolutely delicious!! I blended some frozen strawberries with it and it tasted like homemade cake. I have tried many other protein powders and before ordering from Unico.
It gives me everything I need after a tough workout to re-fuel and keep me going until my meal. Laura verified owner — May 22, Alexis Cordivari verified owner — May 23, The flavor is amazing and the powder is very fine so it mixes extremely well with no lumps!
Kathleen verified owner — May 24, Like I enjoy drinking my protein because of this brand. This is one of the best protein powders that i have tried. I purchased the burthday cupcake and it tastes awesome! I will definitely purchase again. I will be trying the other flavors: HP verified owner — May 25, This is seriously one of the best tasting proteins I have tried.
I have tried to gooey cinnamon roll and birthday cupcake. Both are absolutely wonderful! They are a little off putting because they get soggy after a little bit. Kelly OBrien verified owner — May 25, The cinnamon flavor is so darn delicious!!!
Andrea verified owner — May 28, Jackie Gutierrez verified owner — May 29, Honestly the best tasting protein I have had in a while. I definitely recommend anyone to try this. I usually get the vanilla because I like to make different flavored shakes. Low carbs, and tastes so good. My first time really using protein powder… I can tell a difference in my workouts and I LOVE the taste of the cupcake flavor. Nora Lavella verified owner — June 1, Tiggerbear97 verified owner — June 1, Alyssa Gray verified owner — June 2, This is the best protein ever!
Low carbs, minimal ingredients.. Jenna verified owner — June 2, Stephanie Cisco verified owner — June 2, I always struggled with finding a good protein that also tastes good. Until I found this! Muriel K verified owner — June 3, I love the birthday cake protein with strawberry!
Very cute with sprinkles and all, but the key is it curbs hunger longer than most when using as replacement. Tiffany verified owner — June 4, No chalky taste, no unbearable flavors and goes down smooth!
Meagon verified owner — June 4, Josie Dennis verified owner — June 4, This is hands down the best tasting protein I have found yet. And no after taste which makes it even better. Allison Shinnebarger verified owner — June 4, This one is simply the best! So far, I am loving this!! The taste is amazing, and I definitely feel full afterwards.
I already ordered my second round, just to be sure I never run out. Right now I have the birthday cake and the little sprinkles just brighten my day! Finally a protein worth sipping. I have tried so many different protein powders, and I keep coming back to Unico!! I love adding them into my smoothies they always end up tasting like milkshakes and Apollo makes really good protein waffles as well!!
Not gritty at all, I look forward to using my protein every day! This is the most delicious protein out there. Cinnamon roll literally tastes like a dessert. Egads verified owner — June 7, The chocolate lava and cookies and dream are my fav. The banana pie was also good. Wish they would get samples back in. I want to try choc peanut butter. Kristin verified owner — June 8, I have to limit myself because the vanilla shake is so good. TraumaQueen verified owner — June 9, Really enjoying this product, looking forward to trying the other flavors and the vegan option.
Kindal verified owner — June 9, Vicktorea verified owner — June 11, Chessa leisring verified owner — June 11, This product is phenomenal. I have tried almost every protein powder out there and this is the best tasting and also keeps me feeling full the longest. It also mixes well and has no chalky texture. The Birthday Cake cupcake flavor is amazing!!! Ashley Cardillo verified owner — June 11, I love this protein! I try to watch how much added sugar is in the supplements I use and there is hardly any added sugar.
My favorite so far is the cinnamon roll one. It tastes like a churro. However, I knew that I needed to start taking protein after the gym so I bought the chocolate lava shake flavor. So I tried it with milk and it was much better to stomach for me so that may be the way I need to drink it all the time. Other than that, the chocolate flavor itself is good and it did leave me feeling full after a workout and held me until I was home to cook dinner.
Lulu — June 12, Almost finished with the banana cream pie flavor, came back here to reorder the same flavor. Read a review that it tastes like banana laffy taffy, and I can confirm. Also, if you mix it with coconut milk and pineapple orange juice it tastes like a vacation.
I was really surprised about how good this tasted for a vegan protein powder. It almost does have a nutty flavor even tho the only nut in it is coconut. Merlin Solares verified owner — June 12, First of all, I love that you have the option to chose vegan. I hope more flavors come out!
As someone who was paying out the butt for Shakeology for well over a year, I was so happy to find Unarco! Great product and tastes amazing! Leah verified owner — June 12, The molten lava chocolate and cinnamon bun protein powders are phenomenal! The cookies and cream tastes just like an Oreo Milkshake!
The protein itself is great. The flavor of the Chocolate Peanut Butter, however, is a tad disappointing. I have to dd my own PB2 powder to get the peanut butter flavor.
Aside from banana not being quite my cup of tea, the rest are freaking amazing. It also bakes really well! Kate — June 13, The shakes are smooth, blend well in smoothies and with a blender bottle, and are absolutely delicious! Melissa verified owner — June 13, Allison Born verified owner — June 13, I love how versatile the powders are.
I can shake them up with just milk, blend them into smoothies, bake them in food, or even just blend them into protein balls. And I feel great after. I always have cold coffee in my fridge usually left over from a full pot I made.
Samiyah Benjamin verified owner — June 13, Best tasting protein powder ever… Exactly like a vanilla milkshake. I rate this product both thumbs up!!! I love how my protein shakes come out so creamy if I add ice and very flavorful or make my proats super creamy! I was super hesitant to purchase- every company always states that their protein powders are non-chalky, and delicious..
Unico birthday cake protein is exactly as described: You will absolutely NOT regret buying the protein- whatever flavor you choose.
I am going to start purchasing more flavors so I can tag them in depending on what I am craving cause.. Nicole Pizza verified owner — June 15, I have tried many of these flavors. My all time favorite is Cinnamon Roll. This flavor is not too sweet, but delicious, especially when blended with ice and milk in the blender. For sweeter flavors I would choose birthday cake or cookies and cream. None of these proteins have the nasty chalky taste. As far as performance, they keep me satisfied and when used properly I see sufficient gains.
My mom recently ordered the vegan option. Did I mention it not only smells amazing but tastes amazing and I can drink it with just unsweetened almond milk? Kathryn Gagnon verified owner — June 16, Cookies and cream tastes just like a milkshake just by adding the suggested amount of water! This protein powder is sweet and creamy and mixes like a dream. Sara P verified owner — June 17, Tastes great and mixes very well. Does not taste chalky at all and is a great post workout shake. I will definitely be repurchasing again.
Zach Burton verified owner — June 18, I have tried multiple flavors and they are all super tasty. I will be a repeat buyer! Christan — June 20, I just received the Caramel today. I mixed with 50g of banana and cashew milk. Add a pinch or two of salt and it knocks the flavor out of the park.
Tastes like straight caramel sauce! A Unico protein shake has become a part of my everyday breakfast. Mixes well and is very filling. I have a smile on my face while typing this review; I just finished my morning shake! I cant wait to try more favors! Cheryce Ward verified owner — June 25, Desiree Hernandez verified owner — June 29, Julie verified owner — July 1, Carrie verified owner — July 6, A lot of different products leave a lot to be desired in the flavor department.
NOT the case with this. Ordered birthday cake cupcake and oh my heck! Would definitely recommend and will be ordering more! Spencer verified owner — July 11, I went out on a whim and ordered the delicious vanilla icecream milkshake flavor and the second it landed on my doorstep I was dumping it into a blender bottle with some almond milk. One sip in and I ran to my social media to tell everyone to stop what they were doing and go out and purchase this product themselves!
This is hands down the smoothest and best tasting protein powder on the planet what used to be a daunting task for me is now something I look forward to waking up and drinking. Not only does it taste great it also keeps me full for hours and as someone who works in emergency medicine that is very important.
Cassie verified owner — July 13, This stuff is good. I have tried four flavors; banana, caramel, cinnamon roll, and chocolate peanut butter, and all of them are amazing in comparison to other protein shakes. The consistency of the powder itself is really light and in a shaker, it froths.
Some other protein brands leave a crunchy, unhydrated chalk even after vigorous shaking, but not this one. The flavor is exactly as promised, it tastes like a cinnamon roll from Cinnabon, covered in icing when it is mixed in water!! The macros are perfect and it makes me so happy to have this flavor again while cutting, without needing a cheat day. I am in love. Crystal Maher verified owner — July 19, This protein powder is soooooooo freaking good!!
So, no thank you. This stuff is so freaking good. I got the vanilla ice cream shake one. Can we just focus on that? My favorite flavor is Birthday Cake Cupcakes with extra sprinkles ;- and it is a staple in my pantry! I have been slowly adding the other flavors to my collection too and there is something special about every single flavor! I can promise you the flavor will NOT dissapoint! Liv verified owner — July 19, Obsessed with the chocolate lava when heated up.
Eryn verified owner — July 19, Do not sleep on this product. It makes it milkshake consistency and makes me super super full. I am not a superfit muscle building goddess. I am a Midwest chick with lots of chub to lose who rides her bike and walks unbelieveably long distances to accomplish that. That being said, I have tried A LOT of protein powders and most of them either taste like crap or have a yucky texture. Clumpy protein shakes are no fun! So I purchased a tub of the birthday cake protein powder.
Great texture, dissolves completely and is not chalky. No funky aftertaste either. It works well with milk or just plain water, with no blender required. My favorite part is the sprinkles that seem to appear out of nowhere. They add a little bit of fun to my protein shake. I actually look forward to this protein shake.
It did take a while for my order to come. Apparently there was an inventory issue which delayed the processing of my order. But Erin and her team stayed on top of it and kept me informed about where my order was. The customer service was very good.
I have ordered this protein powder twice the Birthday cake protein powder It took a little experimenting, but I love the recipe I use and it makes an awesome, awesome shake every time. I make it almost every day and it is so great. After searching for almost a year, I found this protein and I will never buy from another again. The birthday cake is the best, I love the rainbow sprinkles and the packaging is eye catchy and gorgeous.
Therese Marzouk verified owner — July 22, I am in love with this protein powder!!! It mixes easily, even without a shaker. The flavors are amazing— luscious and decadent… with macros that meet my needs.
I was looking for some kind of protein powder to help supplement my diet, as I tend to go all day without eating during the work day. Decided to try this and see if it lived up to the hype. It tasted better and less gritty when blended as opposed to just using a shaker bottle, but it was good either way. It definitely fills me up and helps get rid of the oops-I-forgot-to-eat-today headaches. This protein is unbelievable delicious. It tastes great alone mixed with water, or added into my berry smoothie.
Even my children love it. This protein is BOMB! My husband and I tried the Birthday Cake flavor and it was so tasty. He used it a few times with just water and said it was good, but we loved mixing it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
We use it after workouts only and it seems to curb hunger for a bit. I got the chocolate peanut butter flavor and it tastes just like a liquid peanut butter cup! The birthday cupcakes is so good. And I stay full until my next meal. The Sprinkles alone give it 5 stars!! I cannot wait to try more flavors and products! The bday cake protein is amazing I cannot stop making things with it!
The quality is also just amazing I love it so much! Definitely worth the price! Taylor baker verified owner — August 3, Cookies and cream, and chocolate are amazing! Birthday cake and vanilla are strong contenders! Mixes well, put in yogurt oatmeal and its just like eating dessert for breakfast! It makes it a delight to drink. If a kid likes it you know it tastes delicious.
The vanilla shake is awesome and the funfetti cupcake is to die for. Love love love this protien. This protien is in my opinion the best in every way. Keep up the amazing work. Shipping is pretty quick as well. Like most proteins do. I bought it and absolutely love it. The other 5 proteins went in the trash.
Buy it, or get a sample. This was my first time trying Unico protein powder and I was pleasantly surprised.
It not only tasted good but mixed well also. Will be buying more soon! The Birthday cake is a fantastic flavor! Laysa Ditzel Durski verified owner — August 8, I bought the cookie and cream flavor and it does taste really good. I cannot say enough good things about this protein powder.
I got the banana and I was skeptical to say the least. It will be a cure for the banana milkshake cravings. I just ordered another and I cannot wait to try it.
Gia verified owner — August 8, When somebody purchases a product through one of our Amazon links, Amazon pays us a 4. If you see an Amazon affiliate link on one of our review pages, it takes you only to the product that is actually being reviewed on that particular page.
Whether we make money or not on a certain page does not influence the core mission of our writers and medical reviewers, which is to publish content that is accurate and informative.
All our own products are made with premium ingredients supported by science and formulated in the United States in GMP-certified facilities. It says it contains no artificial sweeteners or other unhealthy ingredients, but many competitors tick those boxes too. What is so luxurious about whey protein, we wondered?
The team also had concerns about a number of negative reviews on 18 Shake, so we have summarized everything you need to know about this product. Customer complaints of ineffectiveness already have us on edge here, so we have to dig a little bit deeper. This is how much it costs to start on the respective program. We always recommend trying a product before making a large investment. The 18 Shake Diet is a weight-loss plan that centers around replacing one or two of your daily meals with their nutritional shakes.
The makers of 18 Shake share the label on the official website, which we like. But we still feel the need to investigate the ingredients a bit further.
We want to see what science has to say about the effectiveness of this formula. The 18 shake nutrition facts show that it contains only 90 calories per serving, with 1.
Whey protein isolate is made by separating components from milk. Supposedly, whey protein is used to improve athletic performance. A study from Nutrition Research shows that just 10 g of fiber with every meal can significantly improve weight-loss. You have the chocolate shake mix, the vanilla shake mix, and a product called Sletrokor that the company claims will increase the effectiveness of the meal replacement shakes.
Garcinia cambogia is fruit that grows in Southeast Asia. The gel from the aloe plant is often used as a topical treatment for sunburn and other skin conditions. However, they do provide healthy recipes you can use to change the flavor of your shakes while still using the base flavors. You can find several 18 shake recipes on the official website. Many of the recipes make two cups worth of shake, and can be prepared in 10 minutes or less, using ingredients like ice, milk, applesauce, bananas, and natural sweetener.
Each bag contains only 16 servings, so you need two bags to make it through the month at one shake per day. Yes, there is a day money back guarantee. If you are unhappy with the product, you can receive a refund within 30 days of delivery.
Any remaining items in the order must be sealed and unused. In order to get a refund, you need to give the company your name, order ID, and delivery address. One of the bigger questions surrounding such an expensive meal replacement shake. Some people love the taste of the plain shakes, while others need to utilize the recipes to stomach them. The chocolate flavor seems to be favored over the vanilla option. Some 18 Shake diet reviews say they have gotten great results with the program.
We want to take a minute to look at some of the other options out there, as well as a side-by-side comparison to some popular competitors. It contains 20 vitamins and minerals and only has one gram of fat — and no sugar.
Both of these shakes are among the most popular meal replacement options available on the market today. One serving of Shakeology has calories, so obviously 18 Shake wins in that category. Shakeology has 17 grams of protein, but their protein comes from pea protein, which is a vegan source.
Both shakes use whey protein. But Shakeology wins for the variety of protein they offer. But, it contains twice as many calories, four times the sugar, only 9 grams of protein, and only 8 grams of fiber. IdealShape comes in 15 flavors and is more affordable. Chocolate coconut, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana cream pie, chocolate peanut butter, cookies n cream, vanilla chai, mint chocolate, eggnog, mocha, salted caramel, chocolate cream pie, superfood blend dark chocolate stevia sweetened, orange cream, cinnamon bun, key lime, and vanilla superfood blend stevia sweetened.
It uses a different hunger blocker. Where 18 Shake uses Fibersol, IdealShake uses Slendesta — but 18 Shake contains more protein, less sugar, and fewer calories. Slendesta is a potato protein extract. Herbalife has a bit smaller portion size, at 25g compared to the It contains less protein — only nine grams. It also contains less fiber, at only 9 grams, but this is a hefty fiber dose compared to many other competing shakes.
One container of Herbalife contains 30 servings. Not only is Herbalife more affordable, but offers a ton of flavors on top of it, making this our choice out of the two. Isagenix has a bigger variety of flavor options, like: Pumpkin Spice is a seasonal flavor, with other seasonal flavors released accordingly. Isagenix has several types of shakes. They have one that uses whey protein like the 18 Shake, but they also have a dairy free range that use plant based proteins.
The dairy free shakes are also soy and gluten free. With that bigger portion size comes more calories, but if we cut them down to the same size roughly, Isagenix still has more sugar, more fat, and less fiber.
The protein content is about the same. It is also free of soy, sugar, and gluten, contains 15g of high quality plant-based proteins, and is naturally sweetened. It only contains five grams of fiber.
Like most other alternatives to 18 Shake, Shake has a wider selection of flavors to choose from, including:.
