Each variety is high in protein, low glycemic, dons an inspirational message, and has a milkshake-like flavor. We would love them even more with just a touch less sweetener and some soy-free options.

Craving some Muscle Milk without the moo? Svelte to the rescue with their four flavors of organic soy protein shakes. Each generous serving has 16 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber and just 9 grams of sugars, yet they are rather indulgent in taste.

The motivational varieties include “hello beautiful” Chocolate, “looking good” French Vanilla, “just your style” Spiced Chai, and “enjoy yourself” Cappuccino. Tony was the biggest fan, devouring several of them within a week. I concurred that they were delicious – with the consistency of rich chocolate milk, and very sweet milkshake-like flavors. They were a bit too sweet for my post workout taste buds; I enjoyed them more as an afternoon pick-me-up.

My friend, and a personal trainer, Lori, originally reviewed these soy protein shakes for Go Dairy Free, proclaiming them rich and creamy. Her sweets-loving side adored the delicious flavors, but her fitness side was fond of the high protein, low glycemic load, and feel good messages.

All of the Svelte Soy Protein Shakes are certified organic, certified gluten-free, vegan, certified kosher parve, dairy-free, and made with non-GMO soy. They come in two sizes – 11-ounce and 15.9-ounce for small and large appetites and depending on your exercise recovery needs – and have a great package design. They are aseptic, and thus shelf stable, but have a resealable spout, so you can close them up and refrigerate if you only feel like half a serving.

  1. Thank you so much for offering this reviews. I am in love with Ensure Plus because it helps me to mantain a healthy weight. When I don’t drink it for 2 weeks I lose weight and everyone thinks I’m sick.

    I’ve been a vegetarian for the past 6 months and now I’m becoming vegan. I was so frustrated because I couldn’t find a substitute for Ensure Plus, but today I discovered Svelte.

    I was reading the reviews of the other protein shakes and I have a question:

    Which one do you recommend the most for people who tend to lose weight?

    The Komplete, maybe?

    Thank you so much for everything you do to keep us dairy-free.

    • Hi Laura, I’m so glad that you are finding my reviews helpful! I wish I could answer your question, but that ventures into medical advice, which I cannot give. I would discuss with your physician what nutrients you are missing that cause you to lose weight without the Ensure and then choose a shake with enough of those specific nutrients for you. Everyone is different!

  2. Hi Alisa,

    I have always heard bad things about soy. I even steer clear of them when I exercise. Is organic soy different? Is Svelte protein drink a different kind of soy protein. I guess I was thinking since it was organic it might be different. Since I am lactose intolerant ( more milk protein than lactose) I use Plant Head as my protein. But I would really like a protein drink that is already mixed up. I saw a drink today while in a vitamin store. It was called Orgain Protein Drink. I looked it up on the internet and it didn’t say it was dairy free but I could swear the one I saw at the store was dairy free. Have you heard of this. Sorry for all the questions. I already have your book and love it.
    Hope to hear back from you,

    • Hi Nicki, organic soy will be non-GMO. The negative studies that have some out on soy are on soy protein isolates, not whole soy, which this drink is made of. That said, I still believe in moderation.

      I have seen orgain online, but not in stores as of yet. They do have milk-based shakes and vegan (dairy-free) shakes, so that might be where the confusion has come from.

      Thank you so much – I’m glad you enjoy Go Dairy Free!

  3. My 61/2 yr old has a milk allergy and lacks certain vitamins & proteins in his diet because of it. He’s a healthy kid and good size/ weight. He had one of your shakes and luvvvvs them. Is it kid friendly?? Could he benifit from drinking this every now and then? He plays sports too energy boost?
    I can cont find any reviews on whether it’s good for kids as well ?? It is organic & non gmo!;)
    Please let us know as he’s wanting more but need to know if this is safe to give kiddos?;)

    • Hi Bree, this is a third party review, we don’t work for the company. I think it would depend on if you feel comfortable giving your son a protein shake, but you will want to contact the company directly with this inquiry.
