Macronutrients per serving (g)
% of Energy from each macronutrient
% of Recommended Intake per serving
- RI based on 2,000kcal
- RI based on 2,500kcal
Plenny Sport servings are slightly bigger than the other Plenny shakes. Each provides with 500kcal and it is designed around a 2,500kcal diet. Still the energy balance (49C/28P/23F) is almost equal. Only the quantities are larger.
Besides, Plenny Sport macronutrient range is within the accepted ranged by the ESFA. For more information make sure to check our resources page.
The main differences aside from the nutrient quantities and servings are the following:
- Addition of 5g of creatine monohydrate per bag. Creatine is found in food sources such as red meat and seafood. It is, however, more common in the supplement industry due to its positive effects in muscle growth and performance in high intensity events. Definitely a must in any sport oriented product.
- 2g of beta-alanine per bag. This amino acid has been loosely linked with increase in strength and enhanced performance. Loose being the key word here. Still, it is a widely used supplement and it is a possitive addition.
- 1.5g of glucosamine sulphate per bag. Glucosamine sulphate is required to build building blocks and chemicals used in the making of tendons, ligaments and carthilage. Thus, it is a great supplement to take care of your joints.
- However, this quantities are really low when comparing to an individual serving. This is, if you were to take this supplements on its own they would have bigger servings. For instance, creatine monohydrate is often sold in 3g servings (once a day); beta-alanine in 1.5g servings (twice a day); and glucosamine sulphate in 1g servings (twice a day). So we recommend each one doing their research if they want to fully control their intake of this supplements.
- Whey Protein is the protein source.
- Thus, Plenny Shake Sport is not a vegan product. Allergens include Dairy, Soy and Gluten.
Plenny Shake Sport FAQ
1- What is the difference between Plenny Shake and Plenny Shake Sport?
The addition of some of the most popular sport supplements: creatine monohydrate, beta-alanine, acety L-carnitine and glucosamine sulphate. Plus the servings are bigger. Aside from that they are pretty much similar. You could use Plenny Shake and then use extra supplements on the side, but that would probably more troublesome and more expensive.
2- Is there any other flavour aside from banana?
Sadly, not currently. If you are looking for a sport shake you might have to look at other brands.
3- I am from Canada. Can I purchase it?
Sadly, the import fees will be astronomical and you will end up paying more than what the product is worth. This is a common theme among many meal replacement brands, unfortunately. Hopefully, there will be a fix soon.
4- What are the shipping costs?
EU- Free over €50 if you live in Netherlands, Belgium or Germany. Free over in orders over €100 for the rest of EU.
USA- Free in orders over $75.

Who is Plenny Shake Sport for?
For those looking for quick nutrition after their workout or those who just need more energy during the day. If you need over 2000kcal a day, we would definitely recommend you looking at Plenny Shake Sport. If not, you can always look at other Jimmyjoy products.
Does it taste good?
Yes the taste is OK. Unfortunately, there is currently one flavour: Banana. I hate banana, so I am a bit biased against it. I personally like chocolate flavours better and that is why I favour other sport meal replacement. I would say Queal Athletic is my favourite. But that is another story.
Will I get all the nutrients I need?
Each Plenny Shake Sport serving has higher quantities of minerals and vitamins than the other Plenny shakes. However, you will still be getting 20% of Vit A, Vit E, Chloride, Calcium, Fluoride, Chromium and Iodine. Most of this there should be fairly easy to come by, just make sure you get some milk though.
I want to buy it. How much will it cost me?
Slightly over $1.5/ €1.1 per meal plus shipping costs. Still one of the best deals price wise in the whole market.
Wait a moment, is it perfect?
Nope. However, it is a solid, affordable meal you can use to increase your sports performance. Definitely cheaper than buying supplements individually. However, if you are serious about it, you might find the extra “stuff” is not in the right quantities for you and might fall a bit short.
