Life is like a bowl of…strawberry gelato! Take a break from the busy life to enjoy a sweet, chilly treat made from fresh berries. Pretty-pink in color and pleasing to any palate, it combines real pureed fruit with a swirl of coconut oil, a hint of raw honey and a secret healthy ingredient. Unlike other frozen desserts, this one isn’t made with heavy cream and scoops of sugar. The soft, silky texture and rich flavor come from a Svelte® French vanilla protein shake.
When you’re trying to lose weight, it can feel like there’s always something getting in the way. From a busy schedule that keeps you from preparing healthy meals to a lack of low-calorie food options everywhere you go, obstacles seem to pop up constantly, making what’s already a big enough challenge even harder. With battling cravings, cutting down portion sizes and exercising as much as your week allows—why should you have to struggle with something as simple as finding decent-tasting food that works with your diet plan?
Before you spoon a hefty heap of regular peanut butter into your blender, take a look at how many fat grams you’re packing into that “healthy” smoothie. Two tablespoons will set you back nearly 16 grams—not to mention 200 calories. To keep that peanutty taste without bulking up your beverage, try PBSLIM™, a powdered peanut butter made from real, roasted, non-GMO peanuts that have been pressed to remove 85% of fat calories. In this spicy drink, you’ll mix it with almond milk, protein-packed chia seeds, fiber-rich buckwheat groats and fiery chipotle powder for a filling and eye-opening breakfast.
It’s up and at ‘em bright and early—then go, go, go non-stop through the day—now that the school year’s underway. Our twins, who are entering their senior year in high school, head straight to gymnastics or the dance studio after a full day of classes, not returning home until 9:30 p.m. Then it’s time for dinner, homework and a little sleep before bolting out the door to do it all over again. We’re not big coffee drinkers, but when an extra kick is needed in the morning, I like to make one of these energizing yet nourishing smoothies.
Step aside, chocolate and vanilla. This banana-mango combo makes a sweet, dreamy shake that delights with tropical taste and fruity nutrition. Fiber superstars, bananas and mangos fill you up while packing in plenty of potassium and vitamin B6. Pre-freeze chunks and you’ll get a thick, frosty texture without having to add ice.
Just when you thought a cup of your favorite coffee couldn’t get any better—imagine it chilled, blended with vanilla frozen yogurt and given a tropical twist with coconut flakes! Try this dessert-worthy smoothie with Vitacost’s new premium line of organic and gourmet coffees: the Brew Collection. Choose from rich French Roast, nutty Hazelnut, classic Colombian, eye-opening Espresso and many more.
Dieting sucks. The hunger, loss of energy and brain fog that comes with following a strict nutrition program cause many people to fall off the wagon.

With smart supplementation, you can painlessly follow your diet without compromising your mood, social life or job (if you are having a really bad day). Enter the “Undiet Shake.” This specific blend of nutrients helps address each symptom that makes dieting painful.
