Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Ka’Chava Shake

IMG_0485

As a blogger, I receive many requests from companies to sample products.  Believe me, I have been sent many a protein and shake powder.  The honest truth is, I never enjoyed a powdered protein or shake until I tried Ka’Chava – The Whole Body Meal chocolate shake powder.  It truly is delicious!

With my busy schedule, I sometimes don’t have time to make lunch.  Although I do prefer eating whole foods, sometimes I don’t have time to hit the market, prepare a meal, chew on a ton of fruits and vegetables, especially when I’m on the go!  What I love about Ka’Chava is that it’s all-in-one nutrition and it tastes great.  It includes a protein blend, fiber blend, omega 3 efa, antioxidants, probiotics, super-greens, adaptogens, and essential vitamins and minerals.  It is also vegan, gluten-, soy-free, and free of artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, and preservatives.  I’ve enjoyed Ka’Chava in a delicious chocolate, peanut butter, and banana shake twice for lunch, and it was so good.  Not only did it taste like a decadent chocolate malt milkshake, it sustained my energy levels, I wasn’t hungry until dinner, and I experienced great mental focus.

All you need to do is mix 2 scoops of the powder with non-dairy milk or filtered water and it makes a great meal.  The times I made a Ka’Chava shake, I had enough time to throw ingredients into a blender.  I decided to add more ingredients to the mix because I had this after an hour-long workout and wanted to add a wee bit more protein, plus I enjoy the peanut butter chocolate combo and the texture of frozen banana.  Boy, was it a perfect post-workout treat/lunch!

Ka’Chava was designed for athletes and health purists and is loaded with plant-based proteins and powerful superfoods.  If you find yourself on the go a lot, but want to still maintain good health, I hope you give Ka’Chava and my shake recipe a try.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy the taste and health benefits!
