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!

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.

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

      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'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.

                                        The Ultimate Meal is the best of it's kind but the taste is horrible but it is so good for you that I had to find a way to take it every day...and I did !

                                        Just add this, Jamba Juice frozen all natural smoothie mix with frozen fruit and yogurt, when you add these you will not taste the ultimate meal just add the mix and enjoy, iced cold and fruity, Delish ! Mix with almond milk or coconut water.

                                              Ok, about the taste. I drank Spirutein (chocolate and strawberry) for years. If you're not used to protein shakes, you might want to start with that. There's fructose but it's much more palatable.

                                              Having been already used to protein shakes, I started using this one a year or so ago and I mix it with organic milk, soy milk, or almond, then some fat free organic plain greek yogurt, 1/3 cup of the Ultimate meal, and about a half cup of black, blue or raspberries. It's delicious to me but others think it's gross. So start with the sweeter Spirutein.

                                              A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: 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. Jun 8, 2013

                                              Anthony P: 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! Jun 8, 2013

                                              Bruce S: The label on the can recommends that you take ultimate meal no more than 15 minutes after mixing with water and fruit. It begins to degrade at that point. Although there are some nutrient additives, a large portion of the product is composed of whole food. Jun 10, 2013

                                              Mitchel A: If not imbibed within 15 minutes, the drink will thicken and harden--and be undrinkable. I do not know whether it would lose nutrient value as a consequence, but if you cannot drink it, nutrient value remaining does not matter. Jun 9, 2013

                                              Michael E: You would loose some of the benefits/potency but not all. It is best to drink within the first 10-15 minutes. The enzymes will start to breakdown. Also oxygen never plays nice. If you have an air tight container you would have the best results as far has as the time it sits until you drink it. Hope that helps. Jun 9, 2013

                                              Derek M: 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. Feb 11, 2014

                                              Dan B: I don't know why you wouldn't. I use it 2x a day but my meal is breakfast. I prefer to eat earlier in the day so using Ultimate Meal at lunch and dinner with an occasional protein bar in the evening works well for me. I'm heavy and on a mission to lose 100lbs.
                                              I eat a healthy breakfast and make a shake using almond milk, banana and 1/2 to 1 cup of frozen fruit for lunch and dinner. My cravings are minor unless I'm up after midnight.
                                              For me, there is no doubt the nutrition is there. You may experience a de-tox effect the first few days but that is great. I don't take any other supplements other than Barleans Greens and I feel really good.

                                              A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: Hi. my question is how much sugar is in a single serving of The Ultimate Meal? Aug 13, 2013

                                              Derek M: 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.

I usually make it with orange juice, frozen blueberries and yogurt, sometimes a banana or something tasty in season (you can always add kale, esp if you have a powerful blender like a Vitamix), but the only sugar will be what you put in it.

                                              Russell R: 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. Jun 30, 2014

                                              Dan B: Not a good idea. It thickens over time. Leaving over night would probably give it a thick paste like consistency. Once you get the hang of it, prep and clean up time is 3 - 5 mins. I make my shake and do my clean up before I enjoy it. Jun 30, 2014

                                              Tom W: No, you should drink within 20 minutes of blending because several key components will degrade after exposure to liquids. See Ultimate Life website for more details. Jun 29, 2014

                                              Ian B: 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.

                                              Ron D: Yes, it has a flavor and its hard to describe! I tend to think it has an almost raw "earthy" broccoli flavor. It takes a bit getting used to, but I sometimes "eat" it (you should chew it not drink it) after mixing it well with chilled water, and it works ok (however, I wouldn't recommend that for people who have never tried it before - i do it if I have no access to a blender when I am on the road).

                                              Generally people will blend it with fruit, such as apple and banana, and water. The powder suspends better in the more viscous fruit mixture and it is quite flavorful.

                                              The label gives full instructions on it. You should also look them up online. They have a lot of helpful information up there

                                              Also, I do not think coffee would mask the flavor, nor do I believe it would taste very good.

I used orange juice most of the time, but any very sweet juice would be best. Fruit smoothie with apple cider or juice could work as well. Good luck and don't forget to hold your nose when you drink it! Jun 7, 2013

                                              Derek M: No, not entirely. But it can help. I've mixed it with a lot of different fruits (blueberries, apples, bananas, tangerines, ect) and fluids (soy and almond milk, coffee, juices, ect.) soy yogurt works well even a little bit of blender ice masks the granularity.

                                              I hope that helps! :)

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.

                                              Rita R: The percentages aren't listed, only mgs..possibly because it is a meal, not a supplement. It is nutritionally packed, that's for sure! Jun 26, 2013

                                              Jeff N asked: 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? Jul 23, 2014

                                              Heather W: 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.

                                              Jerry C: If you compare the quality, price, and nutrients of this meal replacement product to others, it is superior. None of these products taste good on their own; it depends on what you mix with them and the flavors you like. I always add banana, but vary the other ingredients. Jul 23, 2014

                                              Larry C: 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.

                                              Tom W: The manufacturer recommends that you mix a banana and 1/2 an apple with each serving. I find the banana is a must for smoothness and consistency, but you can substitute any desired fruit for the apple. My favs: strawberries and blueberries. With the ingredients as they are, you don't need to add any vegetables. I also add a scoop of vanilla protein. See the manf. website: " Ultimate Life" for more details. May 20, 2014

                                              Dan B: Fresh and frozen fruit are the staples of what I mix with it and I love the taste. I use Almond milk as well.
                                              I don't recall ever mixing with fresh veggies.
                                              I use bananas in almost every blend coupled with an orange, strawberries, mixed berries, pineapple,peaches and mango. If I'm using fresh, I'll add ice. Frozen fruit - don't need the ice.

                                              Edward M: I am pretty straight forward with how I mix this. I use a handful of frozen fruit and a whole banana, some water or almond milk. This makes the taste acceptable. The frozen fruit is critical. You can probably put anything else you want, but it doesn't need it. May 19, 2014

                                              Marna B: Water. Then, like any powder, add the fruit of your choice if you want. Calorie count is a little high, but the vit/min content can't be beat.

                                              I mix mine with an apple and extra chia seeds.

                                              Maricel F asked: 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!

                                              Sydelle H: 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.
