Team Beachbody has been in search for a Vanilla flavored Shakeology since back in 2010. It has been the number one requested flavor since Shakeology’s introduction in 2009. Carl Daikeler announced that in 2010 Vanilla Shakeology was not ready and in fact that it might not never be ready. In our industry there is just no such thing as “healthy” vanilla. The FDA allows GMO ingredients plus a few more artificial ingredients as well. That is NOT what Team Beachbody and Shakeology are about. They want to keep the integrity of Shakeology and keep it pure and natural.
Why No Vanilla Shakeology?
Although Team Beachbody didn’t want to compromise on quality, they didn’t completely abandon the Vanilla flavor idea. Most companies will add artificial flavors and sweeteners to reach the goal of a vanilla flavor. Since Day 1, Shakeology has been formulated to give people a healthy, natural daily dose of superfoods, probiotics, digestive enzymes, rich greens and phytonutrients all from the whole food sources. Nothing artificial EVER!
After years of searching and testing they just weren’t able to find a vanilla flavor suitable for Shakeology that met their quality standards.
After more than 2 years the research and development team finally had a breakthrough. You see, not every plant is created equal, the soil, the purity of the air and water that feed the plant. Not only that, but it’s also about the methods used to process the plant so that the nutrition is not compromised. This is what makes it so hard to find a reliable and quality vanilla source. The R & D team finally located a vanilla source and Team Beachbody was excited to find one that lives up to the standards of Shakeology to make Vanilla Shakeology a possibility. But where did they find this source?
Where did they find the vanillasource that met their standards? How about in Madagascar. There they found indigenous farmers that meticulously hand pollinate vanilla orchids and hand harvest the beans. Then they sun cure them to bring out the robust vanilla flavor. All the while following advanced tractability methods that ensure purity, consistency and quality. They have also been trained in sustainable cultivation practices to protect the environment and prevent deforestation. And because Team Beachbody uses this source they are aiding the Madagascar economy, supporting the livelihood of these farmers and helping to fund schools to help educate their children.
The Vanilla Shakeology Results
After a full year of tasting and testing and reformulating which was a true team effort. Team Beachbody is now proud to announce the number one requested incredible tasting VANILLA Shakeology. It’s now part of the great tasting Shakeology flavor line up.

If you have a concern about gluten it is best to consult your doctor before making any dietary changes.

Shakeology is formulated to be free of the common 8 allergens, however, Shakeology is made in a manufacturing facility that also process allergens such as soy, wheat, milk and gluten. While our manufacturing procedures follows strict, required FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), which include cleaning and breaking down of equipment between production runs and proper air filtration systems as precautionary measures, the possibility of cross-contamination can never be 100% eliminated, therefore we include the warning statement as a precaution to make our customers aware that Shakeology is Manufactured in a facility that also processes soy, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, and wheat (gluten) ingredients.” We feel this is a responsible approach to help those with extreme sensitivities to such ingredients make an informed decision about the use of Shakeology.
