"I had the protein
shake because I liked the taste, I did not think of the diet results"
How to make the perfect shake every time
Formula 1 Healthy Meal is Herbalife's flagship product.
It comes in the form of a nutritional shake providing all the nutrients,
protein and complex carbohydrates you would want in a perfect healthy
meal, with a low calorie count to assist weight control.
Because Formula 1 provides energy through complex carbohydrates and
protein, it can keep your body sustained for longer, and doesn't cause
the blood sugar 'spike and crash' that usually leads to hunger pangs,
and snacking on less-than-ideal foods.
The Formula 1 shake mixture is incredibly versatile and can be mixed
in almost anything. It is available in six different flavours in either
single-serving sachets, or canisters.
How to make creamy shakes
Mix 2 scoops
of Formula 1 in 250ml of milk (skimmed, semi- skimmed or
soy) to make a creamy and filling
meal full of protein, that can keep you going for longer.
All of the flavours mix well in milk, especially Chocolate, Mint
and Cream and Cappuccino. Some people find Vanilla slightly bland in
milk alone, so it is best mixed in fruit juice or add fruit to your
shake. Try shake recipes.
Soya milk is a healthier alternative to regular cow's milk, and doesn't
cause the stomach problems or lethargy many people have when they aren't used to
drinking cow's milk by the glass.
How to make fruity shakes
Mix 2 scoops of Formula 1 in 250ml of fruit juice (or
half fruit juice and half milk) to make a refreshing healthy meal, especially
ideal for sports people before or immediately after an event.
Vanilla, Strawberry and Tropical Fruit (banana) make the best fruit-flavoured
shakes, but don't be afraid to experiment with
Mixing the shake
Blenders are the perfect way to mix your shake. Leave it running
slightly longer than necessary as this thickens up the mixture.
Adding ice cubes or frozen fruit has the same affect, it boosts the
volume of your shake. If you're using a blender, adding some
fresh fruit is tasty way to reach your 'five a day' and boost the
fibre content of your shake. Your
personalised programme from
will recommend how many calories in your shake including how much fruit to add.
(Note: don't blend Cookies and Cream flavour, or you will destroy the
crunchy cookie chunks.)
If you don't have a blender or you're out and about, you can use one
Shakers. If you have time: shake for 30 seconds, leave to stand for
about ten minutes, and give it another quick shake before drinking.
This will thicken the shake and remove any remaining powdery taste.
Making your shake with fruit
You will notice that many of the recipes contain fruit which
provide your body with additionalfibre and nutrients.
Half a cup of raspberries only adds an extra
30 calories to the shake yet provides 4g of fibre, together with an additional
2.5 g of fibre from the Formula 1. So a total of 6.5 g per shake.
Try different additions to your shake
For variation try mixing up your favourite Herbalife Formula 1
shake flavour. Some great add-ins to boost your protein shakes
include fresh or frozen fruit, vegetables, seeds & grains:
Add the shake mix to yoghurt to create a filling and nutritious treat
(cookies and cream flavour is great!).
Add the shake mix to porridge oats with milk (after allowing them to
cool) to provide a more sustaining meal when taking part in endurance
or team sports.
