Have you seen Ketologie around the Internet? I kept on getting targeted ads for the brand after reviewing it once or twice. I saw it on somebody’s Facebook, Googled it once, and BAM! Targeted ads as far as the eye can see.
Okay, I admit I wrote it off. I already know about some great keto shakes anyway – have you seen our Perfect Keto articles? And have you tried Keto Science’s Vanilla? (Spoiler alert, it’s super versatile).
Let’s talk about what happened next. I broke down and gave it a try. So, keep reading to discover my review of the Ketologie Keto Shake.
Ketologie: Humble Beginnings
Ketologie began as a crowdfunded project on Kickstarter. Since then, they’ve really taken off. Their website has all sorts of goodies to examine, and they even have some educational resources about the keto diet.
They struggle to keep things on the shelf because, well, it’s pandemic, and also because their stuff is good, and customers love it.
Ketologie Brand Overview
This is a company that created nutritional shakes just for those of us following the keto diet.
Reading the label shows you that each serving is made up of 75% fat, 20% protein, and less than 2% of net carbs. If we are following a standard Keto diet, this is an ideal macronutrient ratio.
These are the nutrition facts of a two-scoop serving:
- 300 calories
- 15g protein
- 25g fat
- 0g net carbs
Three flavors are currently sold- that’s chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.
Ingredients are pretty clean, too: natural flavor, organic erythritol, coconut oil, and grass-fed bovine collagen protein.
The blend also includes less than 2% of the following: xanthan gum, sea salt, sunflower lecithin, soluble corn fiber, organic stevia, sodium caseinate.
If you purchase the chocolate, you will also find that the ingredients label contains cocoa powder.
I think it’s pretty cool that this brand is mostly natural. You wouldn’t think that about protein powders, but this is a nice surprise. You can mix it up with nut milk or water. I tried mine with unsweetened almond milk, and it tasted great.
Is Ketologie For Me?
Me personally? Yeah, I liked it. But, as I mentioned earlier, I really loved Keto Science’s protein shake, thanks to how versatile it is.
You are probably wondering about yourself. If you would like to do any of the following, then yes, Ketologie is for you:
- I need an energy source that I can drink on the go.
- I would like to strengthen my nails, skin, and hair.
- I would like a great tasting meal replacement.
- I would like a shake that is keto-friendly and doesn’t taste like ick.
It’s mostly a safe bet for you all out there. But here are my reservations about the brand.
Most shakes designed for fitness and nutrition are protein centered. They are intended for folks training at the gym, building muscle, and recovering from hard workouts. They mostly feature ingredients sourced from plants, eggs, or whey in terms of protein.
Ketologie is different in that it is focused on wellness. This is for folks who want to improve their appearance, get their nutrients, and do it in a streamlined way.
Collagen in Ketologie
The protein in it is sourced from collagen. Collagen is an incomplete protein, meaning it lacks the 9 essential amino acids needed to qualify. But it does have healthy amino acids contained within that we don’t usually get enough of with a standard keto diet.
Collagen protein is ideal for boosting the strength of skin, nails, and hair. You can also help heal the lining of your gut.
I tried this for a month and noted that my nails grew pretty fast. My nails were painted with gel polish, and the cuticles seemed to grow faster- I could notice that polish moving away from the cuticle base faster than it ever did before!
So, if your goal is to promote your overall wellness and enjoy a great tasting shake, this is a great place to start. But if you are seeking recovery after those tough gym sessions, I think you should look elsewhere.
Erythritol: Something to Take Note Of
I think the only ingredient I have a bit of a reservation on is the erythritol. This is not because I am against it, but because I know some people have sensitivities.
It is a sugar alcohol. It means people with diabetes can have it without worrying about any impact on their blood sugar levels.
But having too much erythritol can knock you out of ketosis. One of these shakes contains 7g. Everybody is different, so after taking this shake two times or more in a day, you may wish to use your keto test strips and verify how it affected you.
Mixing My Shake
Here’s how I blended mine:
- Add 10oz water to the blender (or your favorite nut milk). You can use as much water as you like; I found that 10 oz was right for me.
- Now add two scoops of Ketologie, blend it up, and pour it into your glass or to-go bottle. You can add ice cubes to make it chilly.
- You can stir with a spoon, but it took me a lot more effort to make it smooth.
It’s pretty easy to do, as you can see!
What’s It Taste Like?
When I was first getting into fitness and health, I tried many protein shakes, and many of them tasted like yuck.
So, I am naturally wary every time I try a new protein shake. My standards are high!
But this stuff? Off the charts tasty. I bought the strawberry to start, as that’s my favorite flavor. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised! The flavor reminded me of MEIJI Hello Panda cookies.
Next, I ordered the vanilla, and it tasted fine. It was nothing special but did not taste bad. It’s a good, pleasant-tasting vanilla and will serve you well when you just want something to fill you up and keep you moving all morning or afternoon.
Lastly, I gave a try to the chocolate. This one reminded me of chocolate milk from school lunch. Tons of happy memories of eating school meals with my little friends in the lunchroom came back as I sipped it. School food may not have been good, but the chocolate milk cartons were always a treat!
NONE of the shakes had that weird aftertaste. I LOVED that part of it all!
I Am A Texture Person; What’s the Texture Like?
Okay, folks that eat based on texture, I have to be honest. You must be ready to accept the fact that….
…. these have zero grit.
Did I fool you? Ha! No, really- these shakes mix up smooth as silk and taste wonderful. I do mix mine in a blender mostly. I did mix it with a spoon one day and found that you can enjoy the same silky-smooth texture; it will just take a little extra elbow grease.
I loved how smooth it felt in my mouth. You ever see those television ads for milk, and it looks so creamy and good? Yeah, that’s how this stuff is. You will read the label as you drink to make sure you didn’t accidentally buy Nesquik powder or some other sugar-laden treat; that’s how good it is.
You can thank the high-fat content for this pleasant creaminess.
Yes, this one’s a real winner for texture. Do invest in a blender if you don’t have one already, as it will make it easier for you.
Versatility: What Else Can I Make?
Many of you want to use your keto powder to make other desserts and goodies for your enjoyment. I am happy to report this is possible with Ketologie.
Here are a few goods I’ve whipped up so far:
- I made keto-friendly strawberry Ice cream using it.
- I have added the powder to keto breakfast smoothies.
- I made a chocolate mousse using the chocolate powder using heavy whipping cream.
And that’s not all. I am still experimenting with this as time goes on to figure out more awesome ways to use this stuff.
Pricing of Ketologie
(big sigh) well, I can honestly say I am not a big fan of the price tag on this. It comes out over $2 a serving.
I know that you sometimes pay triple that amount compared to going to a health store or smoothie shop. My favorite keto smoothie at the local smoothie shop is $7 BEFORE tax!
Some of you might want more scoops for flavor, which drives up the price tag.
I pretended to be back in my college days when I had to REALLY stretch my food dollars. I used one scoop to see how diluted the flavor got. It tasted great, but you noticed the difference, and it was not as creamy and thick.
Using this trick does bring down the cost, so that’s one way to enjoy it if you are on a budget.
What Customers Think
Now, I’d like to take a moment and paraphrase what some of the other customers had to say about Ketologie shakes. I edited these for brevity’s sake, but please go to Ketologie and see for yourself!
I took these reviews from the Chocolate Keto Shake page.
Enrico W Says: “I’ve been on many diets and had many shakes. I found keto to be the best for me, as the results are amazing. This Ketologie Chocolate Shake plays a big part in my diet, and it is the best I ever had. It tastes so good and keeps me satisfied. My body feels and looks strong, and I am so lean. I feel like a teenager again! Thank you, Ketologie, for this amazing product.”
Vanessa C Says: “One of the best shakes I ever drank. It fills me up, tastes like a chocolate shake, and I am going to keep this coming.”
Joy K says: “I love this shake, whether I mix it with coconut or almond milk. Sometimes I even make a smoothie and throw in some avocado. This is what I use to break my fast each morning, and I feel satisfied until it is time for lunch. This stuff tastes great and mixes quite well!”
Anonymous says: I have been looking out for the best keto shake, and one that is good in terms of proteins and fats. This shake has the right stuff- flavor, texture, and fats. I find it is a bit short when it comes to protein, however. However, I am going to continue to buy this because it is easy to drink.
But why is the serving size so small? This needs to come with 30 servings and not 16. Not many can afford to use such a pricey product each and every day. I wish you would lower the price and include 30 servings.
Granted, I have tried other chocolate shakes, and this one is the best of them all. Thank you for a great flavor but try to bring that price tag down.
Wrapping It Up: Closing Ideas
I think this is a pretty good shake idea for those of you looking for a wellness shake that gets you feeling great, provides clean energy, and tastes great.
There is absolutely a reason these guys can’t keep the stuff on the shelf, and it’s because it tastes great.
The shakes are packed with healthy fats, thanks to the inclusion of coconut oil in the mix. This stuff is good for our skin and keeps us satisfied until mealtime. They contain 25g of healthy fats, which is the secret to the satisfaction!
The shakes taste great, and they are also sold in travel packets. This makes it easier to avoid eating poorly when on the road (I LOVE vacations, but I always overindulge, and maybe these packets can help).
And Ketologie has some other cool stuff, too- so do check them out. Keep it keto and enjoy your shake!
