This MTL Spot Makes Healthier Versions Of Decadent Drinks That Even Fool Sugar Addicts

Delicious shakes & tea bombs in every colour of the rainbow.

There's a place on Montreal's West Island that makes wild drink fantasies come true — but instead of loading them up with sugar, Lakeshore Nutrition makes healthier versions of shakes and refreshers

Team leader Ashley Smith told MTL Blog the health bar is based on an existing concept and model. We found that these bars typically use products and recipes supplied by Herbalife Nutrition, a global multi-level marketing corporation.

Smith said the team is "passionate about making healthy treats look appealing and taste even better."

Whereas a typical milkshake might have 45 grams of sugar, Smith said Lakeshore's shakes have an average of 10 grams of sugar and are also higher in protein. 

Smith said the tea bombs are also very popular, and she described them as "natural energizing tea layers on ice with cool colours." 

Check out the menu for drinks like the "Skittles" — an energizing herbal tea bomb with lime, cranberry aloe, lemon, cherry and actual Skittles in it.

Or there's the "Raspberry Strudel," a plant-based protein shake with a blend of vanilla, raspberry and cookies & cream. 

According to Smith, Lakeshore will provide you with the nutritional information for the beverage of your choice before you order — just ask!
