Nutrisystem Shakes – Reviews of TurboShakes and Nutricrush


Here’s everything you need to know about Nutrisystem’s Shakes in one article! We’ll cover their ingredients, taste reviews of their flavors, and answer that oft asked question, “Just what the heck is the difference between TurboShakes and NutriCrush shakes?”

The Basics

TurboShakes and NutriCrush are two different types of shake mix that Nutrisystem has formulated “to help maximize results while making the diet easy to maintain.”

Each has a low-calorie, high-protein, and high-fiber formulation that is meant to make you feel full without packing on the pounds. And because this formulation is ingested as a liquid, you’re less likely to feel bloated from that fiber.

Both shake mixes come in Chocolate and Vanilla flavors, and are sold as powders. Just add water, shake, and your drink is good to go.

What’s The Difference Between TurboShakes and Nutricrush Shakes?

Though they are both low in calories and high in nutritional content, TurboShake and NutriCrush do have different nutrients (we’ll list them later on).

For  TurboShakes, Nutrisystem has added a blend of probiotics, so in theory, it may help your digestive health.

On the other hand, NutriCrush is loaded with calcium, which is great for keeping those bones in tip-top form for your busy lifestyle (like if you can’t find time to eat enough calcium-containing dairy/dairy substitutes)!

TurboShakes seem to be the Priority.

TurboShakes are very much a part of Nutrisystem’s diet plans, as these shakes are included in the “Turbo Takeoff” portion of their Lean13 kickstart program.

Turbo Takeoff is a week of higher-intensity, non-customizable dieting, so regardless of which diet plan you purchased, expect to be disciplined in your first week. Mercifully, Nutrisystem has included TurboShakes as a sweet ray of sunshine in these crucial seven days.

If you’re not committing to a Nutrisystem diet plan, you can still buy TurboShakes a la carte. You’ll even find them at Amazon and Walmart!

Nutricrush Shakes are not bundled with any plan.

NutriCrush shakes are only available a la carte on Nutrisystem, as they are not bundled with any of the plans. Be Careful not to confuse these with the NutriCrush bars, which are protein bars included in Turbo Takeoff.

Meal Replacements? Nope!

If you’re wondering if you can use these shakes as meal replacements, it’s not really what they’re designed for, even though tons of other review sites categorize them as such.

Note that TurboShakes and NutriCrush are low-calorie shakes, not magical potions that miraculously melt fats and flush them down the drain. When trying out these shakes, you still need to watch the other food you eat if you want to see changes on the scale.

Now, let’s pick apart each of these shakes by flavor, and get down to the itty-bitty details you’ll want to know.

TurboShake, Chocolate

Taste Rating: 8 out of 10

What did we say about fitness foods being delicious? TurboShake Chocolate is so rich and tasty, you’ll be surprised it’s a diet shake.

Aside from its chocolate-milk taste, its creamy texture is unexpectedly pleasant. Just make sure to blend it right as it tends to get “lumpy even after lots and lots of shakin’.”

And yes, it does deliver on its promise to keep you full until lunch.

Overall, this shake can make you forget you’re on a diet. One user even said, “I look forward to it especially considering the Nutrisystem food is not always eatable.” That should tell you something.

TurboShake, Vanilla

Taste Rating: 9 out of 10

Oh, the many ways to love this versatile shake! It tastes good with just water, but you can make it a yummier treat by dressing it up with fruit, mint extract, cinnamon, cocoa, or coffee.

The shake’s vanilla flavor doesn’t taste artificial at all, and its thick consistency makes it filling.

As this is TurboShake, which is known to get clumpy, keep in mind to shake it right. Good tip from a user: “These are REALLY good if you use a blender to completely dissolve the ice.”

NutriCrush, Chocolate

Rating: 9 out of 10

They didn’t lie about NutriCrush being a filling snack.

A serving of this shake really does curb hunger for a few hours, which is just perfect because now, we can forget reaching for a mid-morning brownie or a late-night cupcake.

And it doesn’t hurt that this chocolate-flavored drink is tasty! So tasty, in fact, that one user says, “I like to add a little water to the powder so that it resembles fudge then I add fresh blueberries and refrigerate overnight.”

If your taste leans toward something less sweet, you may want to drink just half a serving at a time, or blend the drink with coffee. Yum!

·         Calcium caseinate

·         Cocoa (processed with alkali)

·         Whey protein concentrate

NutriCrush, Vanilla

Taste Rating: 9 out of 10

This NutriCrush shake is just as filling and delicious as its chocolate counterpart, but the vanilla flavor makes it so versatile that you can whip up your own meal replacements with it.

One dieter, for example, calls it the cornerstone of her maintenance diet, sharing, “I have this for lunch every day. I add this to low calorie almond milk, a tablespoon of nonfat cheesecake pudding mix, and ice.”

 

As amazing as that sounds, Nutrisystem intended this shake to be just an appetite-quencher between meals and not an actual meal replacement. We say: Snack accordingly!

Price

$19.99 for a 7-pack

Ingredients

·         Calcium caseinate

·         Dietary fiber blend (inulin, resistant maltodextrin)

·         Whey protein concentrate
