      The benefits of the Ultimate Meal are many and I could go on forever on the virtues of this one of a kind prodcut. I was leary at first because so many reviewers were not satisfied with the taste. I have a solution to that. My wife and I each use the Ultimate meal twice daily and we prepare it as you would a smoothy with one frozen banana, frozen fruit (usually blue berries and raspberries) and use almond milk as the liquid. I like to add a teaspoon of the Ultimate Sweetener to ofset the tartness of the berries. It tastes great this way and I have been losing 2 lbs per week for the past 3 months. It is filling, extremely nutritional and will keep you from eating evening meals which is the most significant problem dieters usually face. My wife does not have a weight issue and she loves it because it makes her feel so good. I have never taken the time to recommend any product in a venue like this, but I thought I would pass on the good vibe!

      I did my research before buying this. Great company, dedicated to quality and vegan living. I think that if you can get this stuff into you, it would most likely be the best nutrition. I'm a vegetarian, and a very adventurous eater. This is gross. Very gritty texture, and sea-weedy flavor that seems to overpower everything I add to it. I have tried two different smoothies, and so far have not been able to even choke down half. The flavor stays in the mouth for hours, due to the suggestion to "chew" every mouthful. If I could just gulp it down, I might be able to do it, but I'm nervous about what all that grit would do in my stomach. I really want this to work, and I'm not giving up on it yet. I'm going to try some of the suggestions of using soymilk and sweetener and flavors like vanilla and cinnamon. But as it stands, I can't get one smoothie down, let alone 2 per day.

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-02-21
      try (if you like or can have) adding a quality coconut milk/butter, coconut water, white chocolate, with or without bananas, or other fruit (blueberries).

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-02-21
      also, you might try a little quality honey (manuka?).

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-02-21
      Soy milk??? Why ruin something almost perfect? Yes, I know the taste is something to deal with, but try Organic So Delicious Coconut Milk (Vanilla), or Pacific Natural Foods Naturally Almond Vanilla also organic and add a few raspberries.

          Do not start out with this as a supplement if you are not used to the taste of protein drinks. I drank Spirutein for years because it was more palatable. But I don't like the fructose. This is more of an acquired taste.
          I mix it with plain greek yogurt, banana, berries and I even add a green food powder. Gritty but you like it after a while. Start with something else and add this to it.

              Never mind how healthy it is, I have no doubt that it is EXTREMELY HEALTHY for the body,look at all the ingredients, BUT, when will my nausea go away? Does anyone not get a sickly cinnamon taste when drinking this? I've tried their recipe, water, banana, and blueberries, when will this eventually taste better? I've had headaches, immediate sprints to poop long feelings of nausea. To be fair, they do mention this as a detoxing effect but how can ANYONE find this DELICIOUS like they claim on their site? Yes I'm feeling better but I have to sike myself up to drink this. They recommend drinking 2/3 cup of the meal mixed with water. On what planet is this possible? I'm using 1/3 cup and I pray I can finish is sooner than later. The drink is filling, easily a meal replacement but when will it taste better?

                  I am extremely happy this product is fructose free, organic, and kosher. This will replace Herbalife and Shakeology protein powders I have been using. I blended 1/3 cup in 10 oz of purified water in a blender and it was a little gritty. I did not put the recommended organic fruits in it because I did not have any at the time. The taste is clean and grassy tasting which does not bother me in the least. I never expected it to taste anything like what the sweetened protein powders taste like. Gave it 5 starts for quality, cost, and taste.

                    Comments about The Ultimate Life The Ultimate Meal - 1200 Grams Powder:

                    I have been using the Ultimate Meal Powder for 1.5 years. After a doctor visit I was looking for a healthy meal replacement because I really don't cook that much and I needed something to help me fill in the three meals a day. I never had a problem with the taste. Within the first week I was hooked and my body craved it.

                    I don't know that I've noticed any of the health benefits that others speak of; weight loss, clear skin, extra energy. Initially I drank it for breakfast and it was satisfying for a few hours and then a light snack would get me through lunch. Somehow I got off my schedule and I now have it for dinner which I love because it is a meal I don't have to cook. I often drink it before, during or after a workout and it keeps me full until breakfast.

                    I have found the mix that works best for me which is water, 3/4 cup of blueberries, 1 large banana and 1/2 medium apple. Sometimes I may add almond milk, coconut water or some other fruit. Surprisingly though my main combination always tasted good to me so I don't switch up too often.

                    I like that the can if used 1x a day, gives me 30 servings. I don't understand products that give me 20 servings. I have 30 days, I need 30 servings. Make your jar bigger. I look at meal replacement programs every few months and I just don't see anything that seems to come close. I like that the ingredients are basic and nothing is added.

                    I don't take it twice a day so need to add something to it to increase the nutrient value for myself.

                      No, I am not kidding. I have been taking this product once per day with a scoop of Barleans greens and a quarter teaspoon of Matcha tea mainly to loose weight for about 6 weeks. Well I lost 10 to 15 pounds.And my gray hair is turning brown. Maybe it's my eyesight...but I don't think I'm going to have to color my hair anymore. Oh, and I feel great. My skin feels like a baby's bottom.I also take Cell Food, Andrew Lessman's food extracts, kelp pills, and Andrew Lessman's Hair and Skin vitamins. But the major changes started when I took this product on a regular basis. And I use Life Extensions cosmetics (the one with 28 different products in one).

                      After reading previous comments and before buying this product I expected something that tasted terrible and would be hard to swallow. This stuff tastes fine to me, not bad at all actually. I forgot to add frozen blueberries or ice, but I blended in the other fruit as recommended on the label.
                      The powder is very finely ground. It was very easy to mix using my Magic Bullet blender. I expected a scoop inside, but didn't find one. The lid was brittle and broke the first time I opened the container.

                        My son is a college student recovering from Lyme disease and this product has been awesome. He drinks 2 smoothies daily (each 1/3 cup), he adds 1/2 banana, 4-5 strawberries, blueberries and avacado. His Lyme disease has left him very sensitive to so many foods and his body is working so hard to recover. This smoothie provides him with so many nutrients his body needs to stay healthy. It takes some of the burden off of him to get the balanced diet he needs to recover. He can't go a day without it - his body craves it! Taste is average, but he just gulps it down. He does a smoothie first thing in the morning and mid-afternoon.

                          This meal replacement did what it claimed to do however I just couldn't get past the taste and texture. It's a shame because I believe it is a good product with quality ingredients. If you can get past the taste and texture then I am sure you will be satisfied with products effectiveness.

                              I do not think this product has a bad taste at all..I was led to think that by some reviews before I tried it..it is better tasting than some other brands I have tried.it's not unpleasant to me, after all it helps me in the intended way so that matters more than taste for me

                                I'm 64 and use it 2 to 3x a day - my recipe is almond milk, an unripe banana and frozen fruit. It is a creamy blend with water as well. My recipe tastes very good and is satisfying as a meal replacement for me. Interact with the company, they are fun and purposeful. Good product.
                                Cons - when compared to other products - not much for me to say here - pricey? Maybe, but it's a cheap meal.

                                  I am a 66 year old pharmacist. I did research on Ultimate Meal and have been drinking it since 1993, My wife loves it also. We are USATF Masters Track sprinters plus I am a hurdler. I firmly believe Ultimate Meal is part of the reason for my excellent health. My wife looks about 20 years younger than her true age of 63. We use 1 banana, apple, blueberries and kale. It works.

                                    I put this product a big scoop at a time into a fruit juice and after a few second in my vitamix (any blender would do) it is ready for my breakfast which I swallow easily and it is tasty.
                                    I have used it for years, I see only one quality competitor but prefer this product.

                                    It just requires the effort of using juice or something and blending and then it is wonderful and healthy. It is my breakfast every day.

                                      This is the BEST shake for vegetarian nutrition. It's made up primarily of sprouted grains. It's the best to keep me full, especially if I drink it in the afternoons. I use organic juice with it but I've also used their recipe of purified water and fresh fruit. It tastes fine either way. I highly recommend the Ultimate Meal!! Oh, and I've been using it for YEARS, first purchased at my favorite health food store!

                                      I use this product daily at work for lunch as I have to be gluten and soy free. I appreciate this product as it fills me and gives me healthy benefits. It doesn't have junk in it, it gives me no side effects, and it's effective. It took a couple uses to get used to the texture and (lack of) taste but once it became habit, it's not that bad. I've used it for over two years and I couldn't live without it.

                                        I turned Vegan about 2 months ago, and The Ultimate Meal powder is my way of making sure I am covering all of my nutritional bases. I make a delicious smoothie in the mornings with almond milk, a banana, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, and 2-3 heaping tablespoons of Ultimate Meal. The taste is great. I am not sure what other people are complaining about. What I like about the product is that it is more than just a multivitamin - made from whole ingredients, organic, wildcrafted, etc... So for me it is more of a vitamin replacement than a meal replacement...

                                        I discovered this in my search for an unflavored meal substitution drink. It doesn't taste good, but I'm all grown up now and don't need everything candy coated.
                                        I have a high speed blender and I used to make drinks from veggies and fruits. This is much easier than buying and setting up a whole array of ingredients and probably more nutritious. I'll add any combination of frozen fruit, banana, apple, juice, olive oil, and additional protein powder.
                                        I feel better and I believe my overall health is improved. The only negative is that the lip on the metal can makes getting the last bit difficult and messy.

                                        After using this product daily for a week or so I am more "regular" and don't get hungry for about 4 hours. I use only one "scoop" in my morning smoothie. I use juice with my fruit and add sweetener, which may be a no-no with purists. Anyway, it turns the smoothie a weird green and gives it a bit of a gritty texture. But I kind of like the taste it gives it.

                                          Well the directions say if your only eating/consuming (choking it down) once a day than to mix 2/3 cup of the mix with the fruit. It tastes like I just emptied a bad of grass clippings straight from the mower and into my blender. And the consistancy is just as bad to boot. Whoever tasted this and decided to put such a bold claim on the front label as "Tastes Great" should have their head examined... or maybe the taster had his/her taste buds blown off in some past war, or a sour patch kids experiment. Either way don't believe the hype.
                                          This review is pretty much just about the taste, as far as the other claims I'm sure it's spot on. It's not a bad product, just tastes like grass.

                                          At first my husband and I thought it was to bitter, gritty and "green" tasting, since it cost a pretty penny and extremely good for you I was determined to find a way to drink it. I added greek yogurt once and that helped but then I used coconut milk instead of water and that made it really tasty and I just ordered a second can. I would imagine almond milk would also be good. I know coconut / almond milk adds more calories and fat but it is good for you anyway. Hope this helps someone like me who really wants to drink this but had a hard time with the taste.

                                          This stuff is cheap at about $1.50 a meal (after discounts) and it gives you a full array of nutrients. I add some egg protein and hemp oil just to give it a little extra protein/fatty acid boost as I'm a hardcore omnivore just as nature made me. Throw in a banana, apple or some other fruit, water and blend. Viola! you have a nutritious meal in seconds. Taste? If you want a sugar sweet desert smoothie go elsewhere. But this recipe is very palatable, and imo being not too sweet is a good thing. The added fruit makes it sweet enough for me because I'm not looking for a heavy glucose rush followed by a massive influx of insulin and diabetes down the road. I say try it. Ultimately (pun intended) to each his own. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Cliches over and out. Be well.

                                            My husband and I have the Ultimate Meal every morning for breakfast. We love it and have actually gotten to the point of craving it when we've missed a few days. We do mix the shake with a couple ice cubes, 10 oz. water, 1 banana, half an apple and 1/3 cup blueberries. It's fantastic! Without the fruit it does have a somewhat grassy/seaweed taste to it, so for us the fruit is a must. It's also an easy way to get your fruit intake for the day. Highly recommend.

                                            If you are just starting out toward a healthier you, you may want to add your own ingredients with the powder instead of following the recipe on the label. Work your way up to the recipe on the label. Instead of water I use almond milk and a few cubes of ice and some yogurt. I add the banana and any type of frozen fruit. Tastes MUCH better! It is pretty filing. The ultimate meal gives you A LOT of energy so suggest using as a breakfast and lunch meal replacement. Suggest avoiding as the substitute for dinner. You'll have too much energy to sleep. Read the label and check out their website. Very helpful! Think about it. We all should be on the ultimate meal plan for the nutrients to maintain a long lifer.

                                              Ok, so this stuff works. I do 1 serving a day, mixed with water, half a banana, frozen blueberries, and frozen peaches. I take it around 7-8am and it keeps me going to lunch. It is filling, and gives me energy. If I eat oatmeal, or cereal, I am hungry by 10am. But with this, I have energy and no need to snack.

                                              Warning...if you do not add fruit to it, it will taste a bit like what I imagine raw sewage would taste like, or yard waste. But with some healthy fruits, its really pretty good. Loaded with organic and healthy stuff, this is my favorite meal replacement. FYI, lost 5 pounds in a month simply by using this instead of a small meal or snack.

                                                My husband & I use this as our breakfast each morning. We create a smoothy with 1 apple, 1 banana, 1 scoop Flax Seed, 1 scoop EAS 100% Whey Chocolate Protein Powder, 1.5C of soy milk, 1 scoop Ultimate Meal and ice. It tastes like a chocolate, banana shake and gives us great energy. I began drinking this in 1999 after a very bad car accident. It gave me strength, healing and energy. We highly recommend this to many people we know.

                                                Will The Ultimate Meal lose any nutrient content if it is sitting for a while? My work's breakroom has no blender and I would like to blend my drink with a banana and apple, so I would have to do this before I come to work in the evening.

                                                Best Answer: It is best to drink immediately after blending. This is a raw sprouted product so it will lose nutrients if it sits too long. Try getting a nutibullet for work. My wife does this and it works great. She brings a banana and frozen fruit in a thermal bag. To good health! Keep up the great work!

                                                Best Answer: Depends. I was doing long distance cardio at the time I last used this product. Good for that, in that you don't want to be eating much anyway. I've since shifted gears towards heavy weights and high intensity training. For that, this is a mere supplement. By the way, this stuff doesn't taste terrific straight up, so if you're a purist and want to live on this for the balance of your calories I'd suggest following the directions and adding liberal amounts of fresh fruit (peaches and/or bananas are recommended!) to the mix to keep it interesting. Throw in some good high fiber breads like the Ezekiel line and a lot of good natural fats and proteins (Avocado and/or Yogurt) and I could possibly see living on this stuff. Most of us, however, are gonna end up craving something more substantial from time to time. Regardless of all that, try it first, to see if you can live with the taste. Many people can't. It's different.

                                                I must be dumb but I just can't seem to find what flavor/s this comes in. Vanilla, Strawberry, chocolate - or what?

                                                Best Answer: I don't believe I've seen this in flavors. It's vegan and very healthy. I don't think it's as tasty as the ones flavored in something, but it doesn't spike my blood sugar and I feel better taking this brand. You could add some fruit to it to spark the flavor up.

                                                Best Answer: The can contains a recipe on it for a smoothie/shake, which I used for the most part and found to be pretty good. I modified it a little bit, as it calls for an apple, which I found to give the shake a grainy texture. Instead we used a scoop or two of this powder. 1 banana, 8oz almond milk (and I think some ice), 1 cup of mixed berries, and some chia seeds. Hope that helps, but the recipe they provide on the can is a good place to start.

                                                If I use this product as a meal replacement for breakfast and lunch , then eat a regular dinner meal, will that be enough nutrition? And would it help to lose weight?

                                                Best Answer: Absolutely! And substantially more nutrients than you'd get eating other foods. I'd include the recomended apple & banana (or at least half) but it's not necessary. I actually lost about 90 pounds that way.

                                                Hi. my question is how much sugar is in a single serving of The Ultimate Meal?
                                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Aug 13, 2013
                                                Best Answer: The labeling doesn't identify sugar contents but a quote from their website reads: Ultimate Meal is "totally free of yeast-based vitamins and minerals, soy protein, MSG, salt, wheat, corn, yeast, eggs, dairy products, SUGAR, honey, fructose, caffeine, ginseng, etc. as well as artificial preservatives, flavors, coloring, fillers and animal products."

                                                I think the "sugar" or fructose traditionally comes from the apple, banana, or other fruit people typically add to it.

                                                Can I make this shake the night before so I can have this ready to go first thing in the morning? Thanks!

                                                Best Answer: You could make the 'smoothie' portion of your shake the night before. When i do this shortcut I keep mine in an air tight thermos. But do not add this powder until you are just about to consume. Otherwise i understand it will lose its potency. If you have to make the smoothie portion beforehand, and add the powder next morning, i highly recommend using a shaker bottle to get the best mixing possible.

                                                What is the exact protein content as well as with the amino acid content?
                                                Jonathan C on Feb 14, 2014
                                                Best Answer: Hi Jonathan,

                                                You can find the complete ingredients list and full nutrition label at the manufacturer site, theultimatelife (dot net). Looks like protein content is 15g per serving (1/3 cup), or 17g with apple and banana as recommended. Amino acids are not specifically listed.

                                                does this product have a flavor?
                                                if so would coffee mask that flavor?
                                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 6, 2013
                                                Best Answer: No, it has no noticeable flavor but I mix it with almond milk and the manufacturer recommends a banana and some apple be added. Knock yourself out by spiking it with some other good things, such as raw chocolate, cinnamon, flax seeds/flax oil, etc., and then it serves very well as a meal replacer that can keep you going all day.
                                                The coffee? I don't know. I suppose if you really want it.

                                                Has anyone tried adding flavored Stevia drops to help with the taste?

                                                Best Answer: Unlikely to help. It is fuel for the body. It is not taken for enjoyment, it is taken because it's healthy for you. I personally don't do the banana + apple bit. I put 1/3 cup in about 12-16 ounces of water and get it down my throat, then I eat an apple and a banana after as I head to work. I don't think you are ever going to get this product to taste "yummy!" without massive dilution with fruits, almond/coconut milk, etc... My recommendation is think of it as fuel for the body, and put it in the tank. Eating for enjoyment is something I do, but not with this product.

                                                Is this a complete protein?
                                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Dec 14, 2014
                                                Best Answer: Yes, The Ultimate Meal contains complete protein. You will notice among the ingredients that it contains sprouted quinoa. Quinoa is the only known grain or seed that is in itself a complete protein, and the other grains and legumes together also form complete protein. You will find that if you mix the powder according to the recipe on the label and with the other recommended ingredients and pure water, and mix it all together with a blender, it will give you a delicious and satisfying complete meal. If I can be of any further help, let me know.

                                                I currently drink the Nature's Plus Source of Life Energy Shake each morning. I'm looking to loose weight and was thinking to drink this instead of eating 2 meals. Am I overdosing on vitamins and minerals? What's this taste like? I blend my SOL shake powder with a banana and milk. What do you mix this with?
                                                Jeff N on Jul 23, 2014
                                                Best Answer: You really have to mix it with apple and banana or it is unpalatable. The smell is not so great but you get used to it. In the beginning you can use some fruit juice such as apple juice instead of water but the ultimate recipe is with water only. Other fruits work but the apple and banana are best. I used this product off and on for over 10 years, however the last evolution has more Stevia than I remember and it was so sweet I could not drink it. And I can pretty much tolerate anything.
                                                I like the company and their ethics toward sustainable and organic products But I know longer use this one.
                                                As far as vitamins and minerals, they recommend two scoops of their product daily for all of your nutritional needs. The small meal you eat additionally is just extra.

                                                Best Answer: The vitimin content is spelled out on the Ultimitate Meal web site as well as on the container. It is more then your high end Daily vitimin as I don't take them anymore. Have been using the Ultimate meal for two years twice daily as I am with US Forces out of country and good food is hard to find. (non existant). I blend a Bananna, hand full of walnuts or almonds, two tablespoon honey and either mango juice or clean water in a bullet type blender. Add a scoop of Ultimjate meal. If you can get frozen fruit like blueberrries you can add and make as thick as you like. I like to keep it rather thin and drink it up. A real power house and life saver.

                                                Best Answer: I have used the Ultimate Meal for over 5 years. Great product. I just mix it with about 3-4 oz of water and stir it up well...and shoot it down. It now tastes pretty good, as compared to how it tasted when I first started, which was pretty GREEN tasting....but still palatable.... The last generation of the Ultimate Meal seemed to be all about the taste, and they improved it greatly. You can mix it with fruit or fruit juice if you want, but I don't think you need to alter it...just put it in enough water to mix it up and make it drinkable. Highly recommended this product. It fills the gaps in your diet's nutrition. The price is around $69.95 -$72 at places like Whole Foods or other similiar markets....much better prices online at merchants like Vitamin Shoppe.

                                                Hi, why do you add spirulina to this amazing product?? It is a shame since I will not order it because of its spirulina content. It has been proven that spirulina is toxic for human consumption. It is grat for hervibore fish but not for us!
                                                Sorry but your product is not that good!

                                                Best Answer: ahhh, the dangers of the Internet, lol. Got to watch who's material you're reading Maricel! Many folks have an agenda - just cause its on the Internet doesn't mean it's true!

                                                Fact is spirulina is considered a "superfood" for HUMANS. McDonald's is toxic, not spirulina, lol. In fact, I'd bet a good portion of the diet you're currently eating is toxic, especially if you eat anything made from common grains such as wheat. 100% of wheat in USA is toxic - genetically modified - no longer a part of nature, but made in a laboratory.

                                                Want to hear about spirulina from a Medical Doctor who's also one of the nation's foremost nutritional experts (he teaches Dr Oz something every time he's on the Dr Oz show, which is a lot):

                                                no link allowed, so search mercola dot com for spirulina!

                                                I personally include spirulina in my diet EVERY SINGLE DAY in EVERY SINGLE MEAL, and I believe I'm a rare 60 year old male who doesn't take a single prescribed medicine... and my extensive blood panel I recently had showed that many of the indicators of health and age have me looking more like a 20-year old than a 60-year old! (my diet is vegan, mostly raw, low-glycemic, 100% plant-based, and includes many superfoods including spirulina and a "miracle" product called Ambrotose.
