Whole Food Organic Multivitamin Shake
I generally don’t review vitamins or anything like that here, but when I was offered the chance to review one of Activz’s Whole Food Shake mixes, I was intrigued, especially when I saw the Multivitamin mix. I mean, who wouldn’t rather take a multivitamin in the form of a yummy shake rather than chewing or swallowing a pill??
The Complete Whole Food Multivitamin Shake mix is more than just an ordinary mix. Would you believe that it contains all of your daily vitamin needs and more?
Here’s what Activz has to say:
More than just a multivitamin, Complete provides a balanced spectrum of nutrients from nine servings of organic fruits and vegetables- the same number of daily servings recommended by the CDC and USDA to prevent disease and enjoy optimal health over time.*
* These statements have not been evalutated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure, or prevent any disease.
Basically, you can get most of your recommended nutritional needs met, just with this shake! Now that’s great news, especially for those who struggle to meet those needs on a daily basis with their diet.
AND, the best part of all, there are NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS! Do your daily multivitamins make that promise?
Complete Whole Food Multivitamin Shake
The Complete Whole Food Multivitamin Shake has a few uses, besides just a vitamin supplement:
- Energy shake– This shake mix includes Green Tea Extract, which helps to give you energy.
- Recovery drink — With all of the vitamins and servings of organic fruits and veggies, your body gets all it needs after a workout
- Healthy snack– When used in a smoothie, it can help you to have a healthy snack instead of munching on other snacks that don’t meet your nutritional needs
My First Complete Whole Food Multivitamin Shake
The first time I tried the shake, I did exactly as directed: two scoops in 12 oz. of water, and shake. Simple enough!
I’ll admit, it ain’t a pretty shake. It’s actually quite brown like a chocolate shake, but it has a yummy scent as it has a berries and cream flavor to it. On its own, the taste is pretty strong. To me, it was like a disintegrated multivitamin in water with some berries and cream flavoring. Not terrible, but not something I’d drink every day.
It had some..interesting… effects on my body. Let’s just say this: it kinda acted like a cleanse for me, with some extra gassy sound effects on the side. Enough said.
Whole Food Organic Multivitamin Shakes
It was suggested to me to use the Complete Whole Food Multivitamin Shake in smoothies, so I made two of my own recipes.
For this recipe, I used only half of the recommended amount of the whole food multivitamin mix due to the reaction I had the first time. This way, with the added yogurt, I had a little more balance in the probiotics and, if I wanted to, I could make a second shake later in the day and enjoy it again to get the full benefits! It is a very yummy shake!
This recipe was by far my favorite. It was soooo yummy that I have been making it every day! I now have one of these in the morning, using only 1 scoop of the Complete mix, and then I have it again in the afternoon instead of my usual second cup of coffee.
