The Nutrition Post Drinks

The Nutrition Post specializes in protein-packed smoothies.

Next time you're craving a milkshake but not the inevitable sugar crash, turn to The Nutrition Post in Springfield, Missouri. Here, you'll find just what your sweet tooth is craving, and each shake only has 9 grams of sugar inside.

The shop, which opened this past Friday, serves protein-packed smoothies that come in flavors like German chocolate cake, no-bake cookie, pineapple upside-down cake, blueberry cheesecake and strawberry milkshake. Or, swap your normal morning brew for coffee with 15 grams of protein and 2 grams of sugar.

Each shake comes with an herbal tea designed to boost your energy. Unlike the shakes, the teas have no added sugar, yet they still taste sweet. What gives the tea their sweetness? According to business partners Kayla Gil, Katie Waxer, Andrew Wicker and Danielle Pothoof, the magic ingredient is Herbalife Nutrition's aloe concentrate.

The shop also has gluten and dairy-free options, and the protein is soy-based. Customers can add on ingredients like B-12, collagen, probiotics and fiber.
