LYFEfuel Daily Essentials Shake Review

Updated: Apr 6

While real, whole food are always the priority, it's great to have supplements and such to help fill in the gaps.

We can't get things perfect all the time—especially when life is busy.

That's why brands like LYFEfuel are my favorite.

They focus on getting clean, whole ingredients into powdered form so that we can get the nutrients we need whether we're running out the door or not. They understand what's important to get into our bodies and how we should get it.

I recently tested out LYFEfuel's Daily Essentials Shake, and I was surprised at how much I loved it! Whether you just want to mix the powder up quickly with some ice and milk or you're trying to take a regular recipe to the next level without much effort, the Daily Essentials Shake might be for you.

Read on for my LYFEfuel Daily Essentials Shake review to learn a little bit more about it and what I thought when I gave it a try.

What Is The Daily Essentials Shake?

The Daily Essentials Shake is basically what it sounds like—a shake you can make to get all of the nutrients you need for an energizing and focused day.

As most meal replacements shakes aim to do, the Daily Essentials Shake can be used for weight loss if you're looking for complete meals that curb cravings throughout the day.

Simply drinking the shake isn't going to like help you burn calories or something. The point is that you're getting a nutritionally complete nutritional meal instead of something else that's not good for you.

And it fills you up with good stuff, so you stay fuller longer and have consistent energy.

The Daily Essentials shake can help you with your balanced nutrition goals.

So what's inside the Daily Essentials Shake?

The purpose is to give a boost of daily nutrients all in one meal. You're looking at:

  • 25 real whole foods (strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, tart cherries, kale leaves, broccoli sprouts, spirulina, chlorella, and much more)

  • 18g plant-based protein

  • 27 vitamins and minerals

  • B12, D3, K2, Magnesium

  • 3g of carbs

All of these whole foods give you a host of good stuff:

  • antioxidants

  • nutrients

  • protein

  • superfoods

While it can be used as a meal replacement because it has essential vitamins and minerals, it has very minimal calories per serving (110) and a low amount of carbs (3g).

You need a certain amount of calories to function, so make sure you understand your actual dietary needs by working with a nutritionist. Every body is different!

If you're looking to add more healthy foods to your diet, this is a great way to do it. LYFEfuel promises to keep everything super clean, which is huge. Many shakes have fillers in them that may be bad for you.

Is It OK To Eat Meal Replacement Shakes?

Since you might be looking at LYFEfuel weight loss options, it's important to consider your goals and your needs when deciding to drink meal replacement shakes. Or how you want to add them into your eating plan.

Meal replacement shakes are safe when they're made up of healthy ingredients. LYFEfuel clearly has a long list of ingreidients that are good for you in numerous waysfrom giving you energy to strengthening your muscles—so it's not doing you harm.

I'm not a nutritionist or qualified to give food advice, but I've always been told that it's important to understand what your unique body needs and how you feel when you eat certain foods.

And of course to get enough food! Make sure that replacing meals with a meal replacement shake isn't a problem for your specific body needs please. 🤍

LYFEfuel Daily Essentials Shake Review

Let's start with ingredients and what's inside. If you've read the post this far, you can probably guess what I'm going to say.

The Ingredients

LYFEfuel seemed to set out to make the most nutritionally complete powders, and it feels like they delievered.

I haven't scoured the internet comparing ingredients of other essential meal replacement shakes (yet...maybe I should), but the fact remains: you're getting a ton of bang for your buck out of this shake.

I mean mix it up in 60 seconds and get 27 vitamins and minerals from 25 whole foods? That's a pretty sweet deal.

I'm more of a post-workout protein shake person myself, so I want to point out that LYFEfuel's Recovery Shake (which I drink all the time) is also chock-full of these same ingredients.

It's one of my go-to protein powders for that very reason.

I don't know the science of making foods, but LYFEfuel claims that their process doesn't destroy the criticial nutrients that the ingredients offer. They source sustainably and use third-party testing.

Daily Essentials Flavor

Let's be real. This is what you reall want to know.

I must say that I very, very much enjoyed the flavor of LYFEfuel's Daily Essentials Shake.

If this shake is as simply and cleanly made as they claim, the quality of the flavor really exceeds expectations. I know it's such a stereotype that good food has to taste bad but...come on.

You know what I mean.

I tried the Vanilla Chai flavor. This flavor was good both alone and in recipes.

When I say "alone," I mean that I chose to mix mine with unsweetened vanilla almond milk (my fav).

Side note: I love a brand that gives real-world examples of how to use their product. I'm giving LYFEfuel major points in this review just because they included an "Inspiration" section on their website.

There's a bunch of fun LYFEfuel recipes to try.

Side-side note, some thoughts on the "Chai" part of the flavor. I was so excited to try this shake because Chai is one of my favorite flavors, but I couldn't shake some concerning thoughts:

I was once told that simply flavored protein powders are the way to go.

Why? Because there is always a risk of consuming unwanted, unhealthy ingredients when eating processed foods. Which can be found in artificial flavors sometimes.

The healthiest protein powders limit this risk by having the least ingredients and the most natural ingredients.

Simple protein powder, without fancy flavors and colors, is usually the most healthy because it doesn't require extra ingredients and sweeteners to make it "easy to mix" or "taste like a milkshake."

LYFEfuel displays a commitment to natural, plant-based ingredients, so I'm inclined to think that they're not filling it with a bunch of random goop just to get a Chair flavor.

So while initially hesitant about the "Chai" portion, I was reassured because they only offer this flavor and a chocolate one. Nothing that sounds too crazy and unbelievable as a natural flavor.

I didn't try the Daily Essentials in Chocolate. But I have had LYFEfuel's Recovery Shake in Chocolate...a lot 😁...and it's a great flavor.
