Meal Replacement NZ

NZ Protein's Meal Replacement Shake is a superfood blend and is a formulated meal or smoothie booster.

A formulated meal is a legal term for a product that contains not only protein but fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. This differs from a protein shake which just typically provides protein.

It can therefore be used at any time of the day to replace meals.

Mixing Instructions

Mix entire sachet (50g) in 500ml of chilled water, milk or into a smoothie.

Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-2 servings of NZPROTEIN Meal Replacement daily as meals. It can be used at any time of the day to replace meals. This product must not be used as a sole source of nutrition, or as a total diet replacement.

This product contains cacao nibs.

Ours is Better

Our Meal Replacement Shake (MRP) is of much higher quality than other MRPs available on the market because the ingredients used are better.

NZProtein's MRP contains quality protein from hemp, fats from cacao, nuts and seeds, and carbohydrates from green bananas.

Here's how it compares:

Legal Product Type

Meal Replacement Shake.

Meal Replacement Shake.

Protein Source, Typical

Organic hemp protein.

Hemp is a superfood. It's a rich source of protein, essential omega fatty acids, dietary fibre, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients that can benefit your health.

It's slower digesting to provide a sustained release of protein.

It's plant based and vegan too.

Whey protein.

Don't get us wrong - whey is amazing and we stock the grass fed type from NZ which is the best of the best.

For a meal replacement however - whey is fast digesting, not vegan, and natural lactose can cause some to experience feelings of bloat.

This is nit-picky though. The real clincher is in the fat and carbs below.

Fat Source, Typical

Hemp powder, cacao nibs, almonds, linseed and sunflower seeds.

All of the above are superfoods and each serve of our MRP has over 5 grams of essential fatty acids.

Vegetable oils.

You know, the kind that we get told to avoid. The kind that are high in omega 6 fatty acids and are polyunsaturated, meaning that they can break down easily to form harmful compounds.

Carbohydrate Source, Typical

Green banana flour.

Another superfood due to its resistant starch - a type of fermentable fibre, which means that it isn't broken down and converted to sugar.

It's good for blood sugar levels, is diabetic friendly, aids in digestion due to the prebiotic fibre, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals.


Maltodextrin is cheap to produce and is often used as a filler in processed foods.

It's higher on the glycemic index scale (GI) than regular sugar. It can spike blood sugar levels after consumption so may be useful after intensive exercise, but not during the day as a meal.


Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-2 servings daily as meals. MRPs aren't to totally replace your diet or be used as a sole source of nutrition.

Speed of Digestion


Slower digesting for a sustained energy release.

Slower may be more beneficial as this product is designed to be able to replace meals.

Fast digesting.

May not be as beneficial as slower digesting sources.


Typical for superfood sources. Whey and maltodextrin type MRPs will taste the best, but our MRP is pleasant.

Whey and maltodextrin taste the best.

Tried the new Raspberry Cacoa flavour, think it’s the top choice of the two. It does a pretty good job of flavouring this blend. Being a meal replacement shake, don’t go thinking it will be like a regular whey protein shake… it’s more chalky and grainy in texture given that it’s hemp based with *loads* of extras packed in to it!
Nice job on the new flavour option :)

Both flavours are really good, the raspberry is an awesome improvement. They can be a bit grainy in liquid but it's not too bad. Amazing mixed in yogurt.

Absolutely love the flavour and with the cacao nibs now being ground down in this new batch it mixes much better and is a lot smoother. Very filling and satisfying. HIGHLY RECOMMEND *****

Tasted horrible NZPROTEIN REPLY: this product is a superfood blend. It doesn't taste as good as the traditional whey and maltodextrin type meal replacement shake but it's a lot better for you. We have a side by side comparison table on this product page.

Had read the reviews previously before sampling, but in contrast, I can’t really fault this. For everything that’s been packed into the product, I think the flavour balance is great. Not sweet, nor bitter. I had the reformulated batch so the nibs had been ground down. Found it pleasant and filling :)

Loved the flavour, but the nibs just make it really hard to drink
