Want a guilt-free treat thatâ€™s actually healthy for you?
Heather Denson and Paige Tyra say their shakes and loaded teas are the answer.
The business partners, former stay-at-home moms with older kids, have opened Fierce Nutrition at LeFleurâ€™s Gallery next to Picadilly.
Offering up to 50 shake options and a dozen or so teas at a time, these meal replacement shakes and energy teas are all the rage.
â€œWeâ€™re excited about getting the community healthy and trying to give people healthier options,â€ says Denson.
Using Herbalifeâ€™s Formula 1 Healthy Meal Nutritional shake mix as a base, the shakes â€” with flavors like Snickers, banana nut and wedding cake â€” contain no dairy and no milk products. Most all shakes are gluten-free and range between 200-250 calories. The powder provides 24 grams of protein, low in carbohydrates, low in sugar and Keto-friendly.
â€œIâ€™ve tried every shake and this is the best tasting shake around,â€ Denson says. â€œItâ€™s hard to find something healthy, with all the minerals and vitamins, without it tasting like whey powder (Fierce Nutrition uses a soy-based protein).”
The loaded teas contain energy boosting ginseng and guarana, a plant that provides a high concentration of caffeine. They are sweetened with stevia and contain zero sugars and only 24 calories in a 32-ounce portion.
â€œYou get tons of energy, a clean natural energy boost, so you donâ€™t get the jitters like a Monster Energy or Redbull,â€ Denson explains.
A shake and loaded tea combo is $12; individually, shakes are $8 and a tea is $7. Customers who check in on social media get $1 off the combo.
Denson and Tyra say their shop is already a hit in LeFleur East.
â€œWe love being able to help our community and have fun the same time,â€ Denson says. â€œWeâ€™re excited to meet the people in this area.â€
