Can You Make Herbalife Formula 1 Shake With Just Water? 💧
One of our most asked questions by our customers is "Can I prepare Herbalife Formula 1 Shake with just water?"
The simple answer is NO. You can't prepare Formula 1 shake with just water as (#1) it wouldn't taste good and (#2) you would leave out the protein component from the shake which is really important to provide your body with all the nutrients it needs.
You have the 3 following options:
- Use regular milk
- Use milk alternative (almond milk, soy milk, oat milk...)
- Use Protein Drink Mix (PDM) + water
Thus, you can only prepare F1 shake with water if you use PDM as well.
So what are the differences between the three and which option should you use for the best taste and result?
All of the Formula 1 Shake powders are now fully vegan. So if you're following a vegan diet, you will need to use 250ml - 300ml of milk alternative to make the final product suit your dietary requirements. If you're not vegan, it may be better for you to use one of the other options as milk alternatives are generally lower in protein.
By standard, Formula 1 Shake can be prepared with 250ml - 300ml of semi-skimmed milk. Ideally use organic milk to ensure it’s as natural as possible. However, regular milk has quite a bit of sugar and doesn't provide as much protein as the last option...
Protein Drink Mix = The Best Option
Herbalife Protein Drink Mix is a whey-based (not vegan) alternative to milk to give your shake more protein, less sugar and much creamier taste. It's prepared with 300ml - 400ml of water, making it really convenient when on the go. (you don't want to be carrying with you a pint of milk right?)
