Ultimate Guide to Exciting and Delicious Ka’chava Recipes

Here at Latestfuels, we love Ka’chava meal replacement shakes. As stated in our Ka’chava review, we think these are some of the healthiest meal replacement shakes on the market. However, having the same shake every day can get boring quickly. Here, we will share the best Ka’chava recipe we’ve come across and a few other suggestions to spice up your shakes.

Truthfully, Ka’chava does offer enough variety not to get bored of their flavors, but in our experience, Ka’chava shakes can taste much better with few simple tricks.

For instance, an easy, yet delicious, Ka chava recipe is adding a bit of peanut butter and a ripped banana, together with some crushed ice to your shake. Blend it well, and voila! You have an awesome banana PB shake to start the morning!

As such, we will add some tricks and tips that you can do to improve the taste of Ka’chava shakes and also increase the variety of flavors with no real effort.

Without further ado, let’s explore the best Ka’chava recipes.

5 Simple Tricks to Improve Your Ka’chava Shakes

Before we share our favorite Ka’chava recipe, let’s explore 5 simple hacks that will completely change your Ka’chava experience.

  1. Crushed ice
  2. Add spices & fruits
  3. Let it sit for 30 minutes
  4. Blend it well
  5. Change water for milk (or plant-based alternative)

1. Crushed Ice

According to our US-based editor Johnny, this is the #2 trick that transforms Ka’chava vegan meal replacement shakes from good to bloody awesome.

I think the crushed ice does a lot in terms of balancing the consistency

Johnny, in our Ka’chava Review

It is a simple, yet efficient way to refresh your Ka’chava shake and improve its consistency.

Nonetheless, not all of us will have easy access to crushed ice (from the fridge) or will want our shake to be ice cold. Don’t worry, next we will discuss another trick to improve the consistency of Ka’chava shakes.

2. Let It Sit for 30 Minutes (or Overnight in the Fridge)

This is a trick we discovered when using Huel shakes. These are notorious to be gritty and not very smooth, but customers discovered that leaving them in the fridge overnight significantly smoothens the texture and created a more consistent drink.

You don’t have to leave it in the fridge overnight, as in my experience, prepping the shake 20-30 minutes before consuming it will do the same trick. This leaves enough time for the water to react and mix with the ingredients better.

Once you discover this trick, you never go back.

3. Blender “Is a Must”

Arguably, with the trick we shared above the blender is not a must, since water and time help break down the bits on Ka’chava shakes.

That said, as Johnny pointed out, using a blender for Ka’chava dairy-free meal replacement shakes considerably improved their consistency.

Besides, having a blender allows you to easily mix more ingredients into your Ka’chava shakes (banana, berries, honey, yogurt), without sacrificing consistency.

And for our favorite Ka chava recipes, you will need a blender.

4. Add Spices, Fruits and/or Other Ingredients

Ultimately, the key to any Ka’chava recipe will be adding a few extra ingredients.

The truth is that you can add almost anything to most meal replacement shakes, as discussed in the Huel recipes, from cinnamon, and berries to ice cream. Yes, even ice cream can be added (ultra delicious), but be aware of the extra calories.

Ka’chava shakes are good for you and your health, but if you add too many extra calories, they will make you put on weight!

That said, simply adding a teaspoon of cinnamon to your Ka’chava Vanilla will completely change how it tastes. So, you don’t need to overcomplicate it!

5. Switch Water for Milk or Plant-Based Alternatives

Perhaps this is the simplest yet the most efficient way to transform the taste of your Ka’chava shakes. Milk and dairy-free alternatives can radically change how your Ka’chava shake tastes.

Furthermore, it will not be the same whether you use oat milk or soy milk or almond milk. Each milk has its own taste profile that will allow you to experiment.

Mostly, they make it sweeter and a little bit thicker than when just using water alone. In most of the Ka’chava recipes below, you can put milk and improve it.

Note, milk and other plant-based alternatives will add some extra calories to your shakes.
