I'm always up for FREE. Always.
So...when my friend Melody was offering some FREE samples of her IDLife shake mix, I said sure! I told her I might even review it on my blog. This morning I wasn't running as late as I usually am so I decided to try it. I probably should have done the review using just the mix and some milk but I'm always wary of strong protein powder taste in my shakes. I hate it when that's all you taste!
I mixed up:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 plop of peanut butter (that's an exact measurement)
- IDLife Meal Replacement Shake mix
I blended it up in my Vitamix and drank it as I drove to work. The verdict? I liked it! There was absolutely no protein powder taste and it was super smooth. No grit, no chunks, just chocolate-y goodness that seemed like a milkshake. (frozen banana helps here I think...as far as the consistency/thickness. I don't like thin shakes.

I didn't feel like I was drinking a protein shake. It was super yum and I'm looking forward to trying the vanilla flavor now. Here are some stats on the IDLife Meal Replacement shake mix:
2 grams of fat
7 grams of carbohydrate
4 grams of sugar
23 grams of protein
OMEGA FATTY ACIDS
- Omega-3 800mg
- Omega-6 250 mg
- Omega-9 96mg
The omegas in the mix come from micro-milled Chia Seed powder! And the mix is sweetened with Stevia.
Thank you Melody for letting me sample this! I would definitely drink it in the future. :-) If you'd like more information on IDLife, check out: www.theidlifedream.com.
