Healthy Never Tasted So Good: Daily Sunshine by Beachbody

quirky review disc

My seven year old is an impossible eater. Just about every meal we make starts with her raving about how delicious it is for the first two bites and then finishes with her pushing the food away, exclaiming about how absolutely disgusting it is. You can’t tell her that there won’t be an alternate meal or that she’s not going to get dessert because it doesn’t seem to make a difference. For picky eaters like my girl, Beachbody now makes a nutrition shake that was developed for kids but is fit for anyone!

Beachbody, in case you haven’t heard of them, are the fitness gurus behind the workout home programs like Insanity, P90X, the 21 Day Fix, and the delectable health shakes known as Shakeology. Now you can share the great tasting health with the kids with Daily Sunshine!

Daily Sunshine is called the 3 in one smoothie because it contains organic fruits and vegetables, * organic pea protein, and healthy fats – all to help your child meet their nutritional needs. You’ll be relieved to hear that this power shake is also:

  • Non-GMO
  • Soy-free
  • Dairy-free (vegan)
  • Gluten free
  • Low glycemic
  • Contains no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives

The Daily Sunshine smoothie currently comes in chocolate and strawberry banana. I love to have an option like this because to the kids, it’s essentially a healthy treat or dessert. As long as it tastes like a treat, it’s not hard to convince your little picky eater to drink their shake!

So, does it taste good? I did my own taste test because, as I said, it’s really fit for all ages 4 and up! The first thing I tried was the chocolate flavor mixed with plain coconut milk. I normally don’t drink coconut milk, especially not original, but I wanted to see if it could be improved with some Daily Sunshine! It was really yummy! It wasn’t too chocolate rich and it tasted like more than just straight chocolate, more like a chocolate smoothie. I asked my son what he thought and he said, “Great!” After another few sips, he shouted, “That is SO good!” We mixed our Strawberry Banana with regular milk and everybody loved it, with a ton of “Mmm” sounds. My son and I honestly couldn’t choose a favorite between the two flavors, they are both tasty in their own ways!

Alright so it tastes great and it’s kid-approved, but you’ve got a busy working soccer mom life and how difficult is it going to be to whip up one of these Daily Sunshine shakes? Easy peasy! All you have to do is add a scoop and add water or your beverage of choice and shake it up. I actually think that the Daily Sunshine Shaker Cup is really nifty when you’re in a rush. Sometimes softball gives us no time to get off the bus and have dinner before rushing back out to a game. The powder stores in the bottom of the cup and the beverage in the top so you can just grab your Shaker Cup and go, mix it up in the car on the way there! Then, your child isn’t starving while they play and you can get a late dinner going when you get home.

We’re the same way with breakfast! Some days, my oldest is just lagging terribly behind and she barely takes a few bites of her meal before the bus is out front. With Daily Sunshine, I’ve done the math and she’s honestly getting a way better nutrition than her preferred breakfast cereal and it takes a quarter of the time for her to drink one. It’s really just such a necessary and healthy alternative for our family!

  1. This is amazing! My kids are always trying to steal my protein shakes, I need to order these. Are they okay for a 3 year old?

    1. Good question! They are recommend for ages 4 and up! They’re quite delicious and then you can steal their shakes instead lol

  2. my whole family loves to start our day with a yummy healthy smoothie. my kids love finding new ingredients to add to them. great healthy snack.

  3. This would be great to try on my niece. She is a super picky eater. So much so that I worry that she may not be getting all of the nutrients she needs.

  4. This sounds like something I need for a quick protein breakfast. I love that they have chocolate and that they are low glycemic.
