My mama always told me that variety is the spice of life! Well, maybe it wasn’t my mama that said it, but it’s something I live by! I LOVE drinking my Shakeology every morning, but I also like to try new and different things!
Recently, I came across these flavorings from Bakto. I had already been using other various extracts to make new flavor combination, but when I saw the variety of flavors from Bakto, I decided to give them a try! So here is my review of the Batko extracts.
I decided to purchase the set Bakto Flavors Protein Shake Power Collection -Natural Flavors for a couple of reasons:
- Amazon Prime with free 2 day shipping
- White cake batter, yellow cake batter, and butter pecan were at the top of my “must try” list.
The box came with six different flavors: banana, butter pecan, chocolate, raspberry, white cake batter, and yellow cake batter. They come in 1 oz bottles, which is the perfect size for the variety, and were packed very well in the box.
This is my favorite recipe of all. I used vegan chocolate Shakeology, 1 cup frozen cotton candy grapes, 8 oz unsweetened almond milk, and 1 teaspoon of yellow cake batter extract. It was super sweet and I thought I was drinking brownie batter with two exceptions: 1) It was a lot HEALTHIER than brownie batter and 2) I didn’t have to wait for the oven to preheat to enjoy it. (It’s the simple things in life).
The butter pecan was another delightful concoction. I used Shakeology, 8 oz unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 teaspoon butter pecan extract, and 1/8 cup unsweetened coconut flakes.
With the banana extract, I used chocolate Shakeology, 8 oz unsweetened almond milk, and 1 teaspoon of banana extract. The banana was just okay for me compared to the others, so in the future I may use it in a recipe for baking instead.
For the chocolate extract, I haven’t used it in a shake yet (my shakes are already chocolate!), so instead I put it in my coffee with some unsweetened almond milk (instead of creamer) and a little stevia. It was super delicious, as was the raspberry extract. (Again, I used 1 teaspoon of extract).
I love these extracts and will definitely be buying them again! I’m not as big of a fan of the banana and raspberry flavors, but the cake extracts were sooooo delicious. Also, I enjoyed chocolate in my coffee, and will soon try the chocolate extract in a different flavor of Shakeology. I love that the flavors are natural, although a few of their other flavors (such as caramel) do contain sugar (I guess to make caramel “natural” you have to use sugar to make it happen. However, the amount would be so trivial that I doubt it’d make a dent into your macros).
