Vegan Cyster Reviews Nutribuddy Complete Shake

I am always on the lookout for quick and healthy vegan products that I can use when I do not necessarily want to cook myself a big dinner or just don’t have the time or access to vegan food when I amout and about. Nutribuddy is the perfect meal replacement shake to take with you and it is delicious!

So when I was selected to review their new complete shake along with their unique shaker I was pretty excited, to say the least.

Who are Nutribuddy ?

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the number of new companies springing up especially within the vegan market so I don’t blame you if you haven’t heard of Nutribuddy but let me tell you why you are going to be glad that you do now! Nutribuddy provides a wide range of soy free, gluten free, dairy free, sugar-free and low calorie shakes to help supplement your diet. These shakes are made from a mix of oats, coconut and seeds. All that healthy good stuff that your body just loves!

First Impressions

If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I like to be as green as possible, recycling, up cycling and growing my own veg. I was delighted to find that the packaging for the Nutribuddy shakes are recyclable and reusable depending on which products you are using. The environment is extremely important as it goes hand in hand with the philosophy of veganism so I never buy a vegan product that doesn’t have transparency regarding their impact on the environment. The design of the packaging is very nice and minimalist but it tells you everything you need to know about the brand and I love the copper colour of the band around the tin.

The shaker bottle I received is high quality and has a handy little strap so you can attach it to your bag, bike or your wrist. The metal ball inside the shaker helps to mix the shake and it works really well. This is the best shaker bottle I have ever used to be honest. The powder mixed evenly with the almond milk and there was no powdery residue in the bottle or lumps. You can also purchase the bottles separately which is handy if you need a new bottle but do not need to buy anymore powder.

How to Use Nutribuddy

Nutribuddy doesn’t require any fancy gadgets or gizmos to make it. You just need the shaker bottle and your dairy-free milk and away you go! I choose to have my Nutribuddy complete shake in the morning to make sure my body has the best start possible and gets the nutrients it needs to start the day with an awesome bang!

Step 1 – Drop the mixer ball into the shaker

Taste Test

The taste is very earthy and oaty as would be expected for a product made mainly from oats and seeds. the vanilla hits just after the first mouthful and is very subtle but not overpowering. I like the subtle vanilla aftertaste because it doesn’t taste artificial and sugary like so many other shake drinks I have tried in the paste. The only problem I have and this is just my preference, I can’t get the shake as smooth as I would like it to be. I have a very sensitive gag reflex and unfortunately lots of bits floating around in a drink triggers it (I can’t even eat yogurt with bits in or drink orange juice that isn’t smooth). I had to put my shake in a blender and even then I could still taste the bits so I resorted to eating it with a spoon. However, this is not a problem with the product as it does state clearly on the website that you may find a few oats and seeds floating around which for most people isn’t a problem. Apart from the smoothness of the shake I have no other problems with Nutribuddy Complete Shake :).

Final Thoughts

I would definately recommend this shake to anyone who is looknig for a nutrient dense meal replacement which keeps you full and provides you with some of the vitamins and minerals you need to function optimally. The shake kept me full but without any bloating or sugar rush.
