Herbalife Shake Recipes

We wanted to create a place where you can access all of our Herbalife Shake recipes. So, below is a list of all of our shake recipe posts, organized by Formula 1 flavor.

To make these shakes, you'll need a blender or smoothie machine to mix everything together. Our suggested method is this:

  • Throw 10 ounces of ice water into the blender
  • Add 2 scoops of the Herbalife Formula One
  • Add 2 scoops of the Herbalife Protein Drink Mix
  • Add any other ingredients (Fruits, Peanut Butter, Pudding Mix, etc.)
  • Blend until smooth

It might take a few times to get the right water/ice ratio depending on the thickness of your ice, make of blender, etc.. but eventually you'll find the combination that is right for you.


All of the base shakes (Formula One, Protein Powder, ice, water) Start with:
  • 12 grams of protein
  • 24 Vitamins & Minerals
  • 250 Calories

Any additional or substituted, ingredients will change the nutritional content of the shakes.


If you need any products to make the shakes, please see Jen!

6 Reasons why hiring a personal trainer is worth the money

Do you want to hire a personal trainer to help you get in shape but wonder if you should spend the money?

Working with a trainer can push your fitness level forward much more quickly than working out on your own.

Here are six reasons why hiring a skilled personal trainer is a great investment!



1. Trainers provide accountability and motivation

Do you want to face your trainer and tell her you didn't work out yesterday? Sure, you can get this accountability from a dedicated friend who works out with you, but this is the trainer's job. He or she has a vested interest in seeing that you complete your workouts.

Also, if you're paying a trainer, do you really want to slack off and feel like you aren't getting the most for your money? Money spent is good motivation to work out.



2. Trainers provide expertise

A good personal trainer will watch closely to ensure that you are doing the exercises properly to maximize your results and target the intended muscle group.



3. A trainer will push you just enough

A trainer will push you harder than you will push yourself but keep you from rushing ahead too quickly

If you are like me, you work out until you feel uncomfortable and then you modify the movement or stop altogether. A good trainer knows how to push you beyond your comfort zone and when to stop before pain or injury sets in.

Expert trainers know alternative exercises if you have dificulty with one or if you have an injury to work around. Sometimes a modified version of an exercise is necessary, depending on your fitness level. A good trainer will expertly shape an exercise for you.



4. A trainer helps you identify and reach goals

As I set my goals, she helps me to attain them. She encourages me by noticing improvements that I wouldn't even think about. This is helpful when discouragement tries to set in.



5. A trainer will personalize your workout

Quality trainers know how to customize a workout based on your individual strengths, weaknesses and goals.



6. Trainers can reduce the possibilty of injury

An injury can derail a workout program and cause so much discouragement that you could lose momentum and determination to continue. A good trainer will help you to do exercises properly so that you won't injure yourself.

Are you even hungry?????

When you find yourself reaching for a snack - WAIT! Are you really even hungry???? Or are you simply eating out of habit? Next time you find yourself gravitating toward a junk food fix do a short burst of physical activity instead. A dozen jumping jacks, 15 crunches, a walk around the block....you get the idea! By the time your heart rate returns to normal you will find that your craving has passed and not only did you save yourself from empty calories, you burned extra calories as well!!!
