The advantages of self-created shakes are obvious. On the one hand, the possibilities of flavors are almost unlimited. On the other hand, the valuable nutrient absorption by the extra ingredients such as banana, nuts, berries or cocoa is included. Superfoods are already in the basic blend. So you are good to go!
Our taste receptors are very sensitive and can distinguish between sour/bitter and salty/sweet/umami (fatty). As you can imagine, the food industry knows this too and relies on this inevitable examination procedure of our tongue and its accomplice, the sense of smell.

That's why it's all the more critical that you do it yourself.
It may be that ready-made meals are practical and tasty. Satisfy us. Save time. But if you are honest to yourself, you quickly realize that real "time saving" is not possible.
