As the longest month of the year is finally over and we’re making our way through February, how many people are still enthused about their New Year’s health kicks or diets?
I received a two week trial kit of Nutribuddy Breakfast shakes to review (see my first impressions post here) and I genuinely really liked them!

In fact, I just restocked even though I had to pay this time (gasp!). I feel like the fact that I repurchased after my free trial product ran out is testament to the product and its quality; after all, I could just have easily gone back to cereal.
The shakes are not only vegan and low fat but they’re sugar-free, gluten-free, organic, and high in fiber. My starter kit was Vanilla but this time I went for the new Strawberry mix.
All four flavours (also including Chocolate and Plain) are made from a base of blended oats, seeds and coconut. Strawberry also contains natural flavouring, natural colouring (organic beetroot powder) and the natural sweetener Stevia.
In all honestly, I prefer the Vanilla. However, I love vanilla everything, though so this is just my personal preference and bias. The Strawberry is still really good. It smells and tastes like fresh strawberries rather than the artificial, sickly-sweet strawberry of some pre-mixes.
A lot of people commented on my first impressions post saying they’d struggled to find a protein shake that didn’t have a chalky aftertaste. Well, this is it! Because Nutribuddy Breakfast is 100% natural, and there’s no stabilisers, emulsifiers, thickeners or preservatives, there’s no chalkiness or strange aftertaste at all.
It is slightly “bitty” and there’s always flakes left on the sides of the bottle, though it’s not unpleasant at all. Plus, I would take natural and bitty over artificial and chalky any day.
So the big question a lot of people may have is have I lost any weight?
Well, I’ve lost around 2kg since I started using the shakes, however, that’s also since I went vegan so I can’t say for sure which one of those things has contributed the most. But I can say for sure that I feel lighter and less bloated in the morning after breakfast.
At weekends, when I want something a little more substantial and indulgent, I’ve been adding Nutribuddy Breakfast to some pretty epic smoothie bowls. Recipe for one of these bad boys coming soon!
You can order a Nutribuddy Breakfast* kit for 14 days (£14.98), 28 days (£24.85) or 56 days (£39.90). Plus, you can get a great deal on the super-cute re-usable glass jar and the shaker bottle with your first order.
