And when I make this vanilla Shakeology recipe, I’m completely reminded of my favorite childhood ice cream. If you don’t know what Neapolitan ice cream is, it’s made up of blocks of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream side by side in the same container.
This worked out great for us because we all preferred a different flavor. Plus, there was no way my parents were going to buy more than one container! Back then, strawberry was my favorite (and it still is today!). I would always try to grab the strawberry flavor before anyone else, but it was also fun to get a little taste of the other flavors at the same time.
As an adult, I don’t eat much ice cream or keep it on hand, so this is where this Neapolitan Shakeology recipe enters! By adding in unsweetened cocoa to vanilla shakeology, it has just a hint of chocolate and vanilla, but the fresh strawberries bring this shake to life! You can use fresh strawberries if you have them, but if they are out of season or you prefer a thicker, more milkshake type consistency, I suggest using frozen berries! This is a delicious little pick me up to start the day and can bring me right back to my childhood favorite – minus the guilt of the calories and fat of course!
