Rich and Creamy Vanilla Bean Taste
When making a dessert shake, you want the decadent flavor of real, whole food ingredients, like pure vanilla bean. That’s exactly the taste you will find in this recipe, coming from 310 Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake. And while this shake powder provides a dreamy taste and smooth texture, it also contributes an abundance of nutrients to help make your shake a healthy meal.
The shake powder features a blend of three plant-based proteins (brown rice, pea and hemp). Each shake serving not only offers 15g of protein, but also 5g of dietary fiber, a superfood greens blend, probiotics for gut and immune health, and an abundance of nutrients. Naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia, 310 Vanilla Shake is also free from artificial ingredients, and works wonderfully in so many recipes, including this Red Velvet Shake!
Sweet Strawberries for Vitamin C
For natural added sweetness, strawberries are also included in this tasty recipe. You may be surprised to know that this juicy berry is actually a great source of vitamin C – slightly more than oranges! As shown below, just one cup of strawberries provides you with more than an entire day’s worth of vitamin C – which can help to strengthen your immune system. Strawberries are also rich in potassium and antioxidants, and supply fiber to support your digestive health and prolong satiety.

Beets for Heart, Brain & Digestive Health
The next ingredient in this recipe is beets! As mentioned, cooked beets are incorporated to naturally color this delicious Red Velvet Shake, and give the sweet treat its beautiful, classic red hue. This nutritious root vegetable is packed with manganese to promote strong bones, copper to support high energy levels and healthy red blood cells, and vitamins A and C to encourage glowing skin.
In addition, beets are also amazing for your heart and brain, and have anti-inflammatory properties that could help fight sickness and disease. Studies show that eating beets is beneficial for promoting healthy blood pressure and overall heart health. In addition, they may help improve mental and cognitive function by increasing blood flow to the brain.
