IsaLean™ Shakes are nutritious meal replacements on their own but blending in some of your favourite foods can be a great way to add variety to your Shake Day.

Shake add-ins can contribute to the nutritional profile of your IsaLean Shake and are an effective way to get additional nutrients. However, if your goal is weight loss be mindful of additional kilojoules when adding to your shake.

Here a few common add-ins that are about 200 kilojoules or less.

  • ½ medium-sized banana: about 7 grams of sugar and 2 grams of fibre
  • ½ tbsp peanut butter: about 4 grams of fat and 2 grams of protein
