Jack LaLanne famously invented the original "Instant Breakfast" and coined the enduring name back in the 1950s. There was nothing like it at the time. It was truly a groundbreaking way to encourage a healthier breakfast instead of grabbing a cup of coffee and a donut on the way out the door. Today, Swanson Ultra® Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shakes are destined to bring that same convenience—with modern nutritional technology—back into households around the world.

There have been so many advances in nutritional science since Jack's first "Instant Breakfast" hit the scene that his family decided now was the time to create a new, up-to-date formulation for today's world. First and foremost, the new formula contains no added refined sugars. These shakes are only sweetened with D-ribose, a touch of honey and Reb-A from stevia. The new formula also features four kinds of protein: whey protein isolate, pea protein isolate, white kidney bean and caseinate from milk. There are 18 vitamins and minerals, omega-3s from flax, five grams of fiber and 21 total antioxidants for immune system support.

With such healthy levels of protein, fiber, amino acids and other essential nutrients, Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shakes are a great way to start your day, curb your mid-day cravings or supplement your evening meal when life gets too busy to eat the way you'd like. If you juice, like Jack did daily, Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shakes are a great way to complement that practice and get the protein your body needs. Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shakes truly are an amazing accomplishment in nutrition and convenience. We are proud to offer it to you.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shake Chocolate is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and satisfying I enjoy this flavor and the vanilla equally. I sometimes mix this one with chocolate almond milk and it makes it extra special.
Date published: 2017-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We mix 1 scoop with 12 oz. of 2% milk for between meal hunger. The chocolate tastes great and easily mixes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Energy Drink Jack Lalanne's Vita-Lanne has quality ingredients at a good price. It makes a great chocolate energy drink with bananas and yogurt. Thanks Swanson
Date published: 2016-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, healthy snack drink I like that this is a healthy quick choice for breakfast or a snack. I like to add a few strawberries and ice for a refreshing summer breakfast drink. The taste is good (I make it with milk), texture is a bit thick, you can add a bit of water to thin it out or blend it with some ice.
Date published: 2016-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breakfast drink Great tasting, dissolves easily, really does provide total meal replacement. So convenient when I don't have time to prepare breakfast.
Date published: 2016-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from energy gives me an energy boost. I use it as a quick lunch, so no hunger for several hours
Date published: 2016-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both the vanilla and chocolate shakes are the best I've tried as far as meal substitutes. Tasty and filling.
Date published: 2016-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good meal replacement The taste is okay and it fills you up!
Date published: 2016-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Protein meal Replacement Ever! I have had my share of meal replacement, The worst part is many taste like Cartboard! Not This! I love both the Vanilla & my favorite Chocolate... I digest it well & I feel good after giving my body what it wants, "Good nutrition"! I am almost out and need to reorder soon! I have both my Dad 90 yrs old & sister drinking this Protein & they love it too.
Date published: 2016-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shake is excellent, with the fiber and nutrition in it, keeps you full. I make mine with coconut milk. Would highly recommend it!
Date published: 2015-08-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Over the years I have tried many protein drinks and never liked any of them. But, I love this stuff. I prefer the chocolate, but the vanilla is good too. It has been easy to mix and tastes good. I find it takes a while for me to have the full feeling from it, but it does come. I like the added nutrients and fiber. I have nothing bad to say about it at all.
Date published: 2015-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this stuff! I highly recommend this for a quick on the go meal when you want to eat light, yet get top nutrition. I started buying it, and then my skeptical husband tried it and was hooked instantly. Now I think he uses more of it than I do. Love the chocolate. It's the best. This is a great product. Keep on making this product available at your great low prices, Swanson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Breakfast I make this meal shake with Silk Coconut/Almond Blend "Milk" which is 35 calories. A delicious satisfying low calorie breakfast.
Date published: 2015-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff Come on folks! You know that meal replacement shakes are stinking expensive! Well I've been using this jack la lane stuff for a long time now, and it tastes great, doesn't have soy in it (really bad for you) and it's cheap, especially when it's on sale or clearance! Try it! you will like it!
Date published: 2015-03-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from rich taste Many protein drinks just don't taste good. Not this one-it has a nice rich chocolate flavor. Like having desert, but no guilt!
Date published: 2015-02-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with this! Let me preface this by saying I am fairly new to protein shakes. I have had them in the past and never found one I liked, due to texture. This one is great. The texture is a little gritty, but not bad. I mix it with coconut water and ice in my bullet blender and have a pseudo milk shake. It is sweet, but for me not bad, and I generally do not like sweet things. You could always cut it in different ways if it is too sweet. But for newbies to protein shakes, like me, this is definitely one to start out on!
Date published: 2015-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from not that sweet I avoid sugar in almost everything. This is not too sweet for me at all
Date published: 2015-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 those who refuse 2 pay $4 a shake for Shakeololg If you hate the $4 a shake price for Shakeology, this is a great substitute. Shakeology is a great product, but not $130 a month great. This is an excellent value particularly if you can get it at in Clearance. It works out to less than a buck a shake, has well balanced nutrients, protein, Omega 3s etc. Taste seems to be too sweet for some reviewers because stevia tastes sweeter to some people than others, same with aftertaste. It is a quick nutritious meal disguised as a chocolate shake. I don't drink it for the taste but for the nutrition. I like the taste, but I would never mistake it for a real milkshake.
Date published: 2015-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I've been looking for a replacement for Shakeology drink mix because it is too expensive but have not been able to find anything even close to the same level of nutrition. This Vita-Lanne meal replacement shake is the closest I've been able to find and it's inexpensive enough that I can add an Amazing Grass booster and get a nearly perfect start to my day for significantly less than before. Please start carrying a larger size and/or selling "refill" bags. I hate having to recycle so much plastic so often!
Date published: 2014-11-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the best taste I was not a fan of this meal shake, really could not get use to the taste.
Date published: 2014-11-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meal Shake I have used many meal replacement shakes. I found his product to be too, too sweet, and I make it with water or skim milk.
Date published: 2014-11-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why would they ruin a really great product by putting aluminum in it. Label says sodium silicoaluminate. Check it out, it is aluminum.
Date published: 2014-10-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT VEGETARIAN as indicated on product page Contains whey protein isolate and sodium caseinate, which are both MILK PRODUCTS.
Date published: 2014-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, taste, value I have been searching for a replacement for the EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE protein powder I've been purchasing through an MLM for a couple of years. I love that product,but I just cannot afford it! When I saw this, I compared the ingredients and was shocked to see that at a very small fraction of the price, it was basically the same. In, fact, this one has a wider range of vitamins. As another reviewer noted, it's pretty sweet. But I add kefir to my shakes/smoothies and although I'm out at the moment, I think that plain kefir will cut the sweet on this shake. Love the ingredients, the price, and the fact that I think this will kickstart my weightloss of those summer "vacation" pounds. It is filling and sticks with you. Thanks, Swanson! I hope that it becomes available in a larger jar.
