Zeapure Shake Mix and Zeapure Smoothie Kick are nutrition top-ups that give children and teens the ideal nutrition boost. Specially formulated for their age and stage, the new nutritional supplement drink mixes are made to give children and teens nutritional support for their health and wellbeing at a time when they need it most.

Deliciously dairy-based, Zeapure is developed by a team of food and nutrition experts, including a qualified New Zealand dietitian, and backed by quality research. Both Zeapure formulations are made with only healthy, natural ingredients and made to taste great when mixed with milk, water, or as part of a smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or after school snacks.

Zeapure doesn’t provide a meal replacement, but a nutritional ‘top-up’ that can be enjoyed by kids or teens, any time of the day.

  • All-natural vitamins, minerals and flavours
  • No added sugar or sweeteners
  • 100% gluten free

Zeapure Shake Mix

Zeapure Shake Mix is a nutritional ‘top-up’, ideal for growing children aged 4-12 who need a little more nourishment – fussy eaters, children with small appetites or limited food choices, or children who just need a little boost.

As part of a varied and healthy diet, one glass of Zeapure Shake Mix each day provides vital nutrients, in the right quantities for growing, healthy children. These include:

  • Omega-3, iodine, iron, magnesium and vitamin B12 – important for brain development
  • Selenium, zinc, and vitamins A & C – for natural immune support
  • Calcium – to support bone strength
  • Delicious Vanilla and Chocolate flavours

Zeapure Smoothie Kick

Between busy lives, food dislikes, small appetites, or reliance on convenience foods, it can be hard for teens to fit in good nutrition. And because teens have unique nutrition requirements, it’s important they can get a nutritional boost that meets their needs and is actually healthy.

Zeapure Smoothie Kick is not a meal replacement but with 11g protein per serve, Zeapure Smoothie Kick is a nutritional top-up that supports growth and development, at the right level for teens aged 14-18. As part of a varied and healthy diet, one glass a day provides vital nutrients for:

  • Natural cognitive activity – thanks to Zinc, Folate, Iodine, Vitamin C and B vitamins
  • Energy production – with the help of Iron and Thiamine
  • Strong bones – from vitamin D and Calcium (a diet high in calcium enhances bone density)
  • Smoothie Kick is the ideal nutritional support for teens, and is available in two delicious flavours: Berry and Vanilla

    We got a wonderful surprise to come home and find out we’d been selected to trial the Zeapure Vanilla and Chocolate Shake mix. I honestly thought my son would prefer the chocolate mix as he usually goes for chocolate drinks however we had the most success with the vanilla flavoured mix when combing it with other ingredients like peach and mango or his favourite banana and strawberry. I found this easily filled those hunger urges between meals without spoiling them, especially after school.

    We were super lucky to get the vanilla and chocolate flavours…the vanilla has been great to blitz it with strawberries to make a yummy milkshake in the morning for Miss 5 and 2. The chocolate is yummy by itself a winner with miss 5 but miss 2 isn’t as keen. What I love about this product is knowing the kids are getting some really good nutrients especially if they r having a fussy eating day. Would be great if there was also a lactose free option both girls r sensitive so while it’s ok once in a while we can’t have it every day. Thanks so much for the opportunity to try Zeapure!

    We received both the vanilla and chocolate shake mixes. Both my 12 and 6 year old liked them but only if we added frozen banana. On their own, they weren’t as sweet as my girls would have liked but with the banana, they were a hit. My 12 year old struggles to eat breakfast and we had settled on reduced sugar up&go for a while. I am SO happy that these shakes arrived and she was able to have this for breakfast instead while she was sitting end of year tests etc. So much healthier and at least I know both kids are getting a nutritional top up. If these were on sale, I would purchase again. I have seen they are about $20 a pottle and the pottle makes 12 serves which is on the expensive side for our family with 2 kids. Hope this review helps, sorry for the delay, things are chaotic at this time of the year

    Thanks for giving our family the opportunity to taste Zeapure Nutritional Shake mix. We received the chocolate and vanilla flavours. At first we just mixed the chocolate in with milk and stirred with a spoon, Miss 9 was not keen on the taste (not a huge fan of chocolate milk anyway), so we tried the vanilla, again it was not favoured. Next we mixed it with milk in the blender – she was happy to drink it, but not keen on more. Last attempt was blending a banana in with it – yay success! Keen to have this every morning for breakfast – and I’m a happy mum due to the Nutritional benefits she will receive each day 😊

    We got a pot of Berry and a pot of Vanilla Smoothie Kick for my teenage daughters. My daughter full of enthusiasm went to make the Berry with water but neither she or her sister liked the flavor. It wasn’t a strong flavor and seemed to have a strange taste. They preferred the taste of the Vanilla in water. Next they added the Berry to a smoothie made with frozen berries and yoghurt. So they still get the nutrition and can disguise the flavor. Each pot makes 12 serves and is easy to make using the scoop inside. It’s like the adult Complan drink for kids. Is made in NZ, all natural, no added sugar or sweeteners and contains 15 vitamins and minerals. A great supplement for busy teenagers who may need extra nutrients or may be lacking some in their diet. I would just need to make it a regular habit as part of their day as they haven’t asked to have it again. I like them to have though to provide them with anything they may be missing. Thank you for the trial.

    thanks kidspot and zeapure for choosing us to trial the shake, we got vanilla and chocolate which have both gone down a treat with both miss 9 and master 5 . they now ask for one as their pudding each night!!

  7. Shelz69 18/12/2018 at 6:09 pm

    We received the vanilla and berry flavors. My daughter did not like the vanilla flavor it tasted like white chocolate according to her. I did not sound like a bad thing to me. She did like the berry flavor and I think it’s a good healthy breakfast option. My son 10 did not like either flavor unfortunately

  8. Mummaof3 18/12/2018 at 4:21 pm

    Thank you for choosing my family to trial this product. I received the chocolate and vanilla flavours. My 4.5 year old enjoyed the chocolate one very much, knowing it’s giving her nutritients while drinking something chocolate flavoured is so reassuring. She is a fussy eater and these drinks are just great for that!
    I then tried her with the vanilla one, she replied yummy mummy I love it!! Success definitely will be purchasing in the near future.

  9. aumgirlster 18/12/2018 at 4:20 pm

    So tried this on Mr 11. The initial response for the chocolate flavour was that he didn’t like it. Wasnt choclatey enough. Served it with a banana and some maple syrup in milk as a smoothie and all good😁
    Vanilla is enjoyed with frozen berries, banana and maple syrup or honey. 😊

  10. Tineke 18/12/2018 at 4:19 pm

    We received the Berry and Vanilla smoothie mixes. My 12 year old boy liked the flavour of both for about the first half of the glass, then he wasn’t really keen on it all. We tried making them into smoothies with berries etc and then he loved them. Our 17 year old girl liked the berry flavour on its own but not the vanilla. I would buy this in the future to add some extra nutrition to our normal smoothies.

  11. nholt2552 17/12/2018 at 10:39 pm

    Mr 5 absolutely loved the chocolate shake mixed with milk! We tried it with water as well but it got more love with milk!! We had the vanilla 1 with both water and milk also but we weren’t such huge fans! So we have been having the vanilla flavor mixed into our smoothie!
    I would definitely recommend these for the extra nutrients… I love knowing that my kids are getting what they need!
    I will be ordering more when we run out especially the chocolate 1!!

  12. Nicolar 17/12/2018 at 2:24 pm

    We received both the Chocolate and Vanilla Shakes to try. We have tried the vanilla with milk and added berries/bananas and other goodies in and used the Nutri-Bullet. We have enjoyed experimenting with the Vanilla and found we did need to add to it, the kids didn’t just like the Vanilla taste on its own. The chocolate was a hit with the kids just with milk. Would definitely get both flavours again. They are nice big tubs and have lasted for ages with our 3 kids. Thank you

  13. kimmyjadenz 16/12/2018 at 7:01 pm

    We were lucky enough to receive the chocolate and vanilla! Mr 8 liked both flavours his favourite being Vanilla. Mr 13 was not a fan of the chocolate but enjoyed the Vanilla. It had to be ice cold in a day like this though. Definitely something we would add to smoothies and just drink with milk as it is perfect after. Not day racing around with sport!

  14. canterburyange 15/12/2018 at 9:49 pm

    Thank you very much for choosing our family to trial the Zeapure Smoothie Kick. We received the Berry and the Vanilla flavours. My children are aged 13 and 17 so are in the target group for these products, which makes me even happier knowing these products have been made just for their age group! Both my boys loved the flavours of these, the Vanilla being the stand out favourite. They texture is creamy and the flavour not too sweet. The smoothies come out thick, we just used a hand shaker. The mixture blends up nicely and doesn’t clump. I’m so glad this product has so many vitamins and minerals as sometimes my boys don’t eat well, specially at this time of year with two working parents. I love these products and I would fully recommend them, I will also continue to purchase. With using only two scoops for each smoothie, this product will last so it would be great value for money. It really is piece of mind knowing if my children have these often, they are getting added goodness to their diets! Thank you!

    We were lucky enough to trial Zeapure Vanilla shake mix and Chocolate shake mix. I’m sorry for my late review but you know how busy this time of year is – and the shake mix has been great for my kids to do a healthy top up while I rush around. My 10 year old just asked if she could have a vanilla shake for morning tea. She says the vanilla mix smells like shortbread biscuits! And she can make this mix herself. She also likes the chocolate mix (as do the 13 year old and 15 1/2 year old – one of whom loves junk food and the other is a healthy eating nut – fantastic – we’ve satisfied the whole family). My kids want me to buy more of the mixes when it runs out – and I will ! Tastes good, they can make it themselves, and great for those snacks during busy times (until 2 Jan?) I like that it comes in bulk so less packaging per drink, the container is (truly – PET type 2 plastic) recyclable

  16. Craig Lovegrove 14/12/2018 at 9:21 pm

    My 5 year old son tried the zeapure vanilla shake mix and the chocolate shake mix. Now this is where things get interesting… he loves everything chocolate, but after trying both of these mixed with milk he prefers the vanilla flavour and I can see why, I tried some myself, now most companies struggle to make a good vanilla shake, but Zeapure have 100% nailed it.

  17. crank 14/12/2018 at 7:06 pm

    My teenage son tried the berry and the vanilla smoothie kick. He’s not a big milk drinker so I wanted it to not only boost his nutrition but also his calcium intake. He made both flavours with just milk and loved them! He had them as an after-sport drink and found it very refreshing. I love that he’s getting the nutrients he needs and it’s so simple to make. He also tried the berry smoothie kick in a proper smoothie and we made enough so that I could have some too. It was so good I think I might have a few drinks of it myself to get a boost during a busy week. Will definitely be buying this again – probably the berry flavour as that was the favourite.

  18. Tarnya Smith 13/12/2018 at 8:25 pm

    We received shake mix chocolate and vanilla
    My daughter loved making up the shakes While she was feeling like its treat i love knowing how many Nutrients she is getting
    Chocolate the winner Vanilla didn’t go down so well

  19. Jay 13/12/2018 at 6:33 pm

    We received the berry and vanilla teen boost. We used over the weekend for a 3 day tag tournament as a quick light snack between games and a few of the girls in the team used aswell. We found it mixed well with a shaker and water, they did say it would have been better with milk. The berry flavour came out on top. I love that it’s got all the extra vitamins they may not usually get especially for the more fussier teens which I have at the moment. So all in all it gets my big tick of approval.

  20. richally 13/12/2018 at 1:23 pm

    We received shake mix chocolate and vanilla.

    I loved the idea of this product to fill nutritonal gaps of fussy eaters.
    Especially miss 6 and 7.

    They are in love with the chocolate one. So easy to make.

    And the kids loved having their own small version of mums shakes.

  21. ruthb 12/12/2018 at 9:23 pm

    I trialled the teenage vitiman powders. For me, they were very easy to both make and store. As I am a very busy person they were very good time wise. The flavours I got were berry and vanilla…. but vanilla was my top choice. These were great options as the flavours are very popular. I would advise putting a label or a little memo somewhere on the packaging telling the buyer to, once in the glass, stir the powder so that the mixer isn’t as clumpy as it possibly could have been. However the measuring scoop was very helpful as it meant you didn’t have to measure it separately. Overall, I would definalty purchase this item again.

    • ruthb 12/12/2018 at 9:25 pm

      This review was written by my very busy, active teenager who is always eating on the run and not always easy to choose healthy options

  22. Kandisd 12/12/2018 at 8:44 pm

    We were lucky enough to be selected as a reviewer. My 8 year old Mr Fussy was so excited to open the box and see both a vanilla and chocolate option and had to have some immediately
    He chose the chocolate one first and we added it so cold milk and mixed it in the blender so it was nice and frothy, he enjoyed it and had it as his afternoon tea. We didn’t have any more requests for more food until dinner time.
    The vanilla one wasn’t his favourite but I blended it up with some banana and strawberry’s to make it more flavoured and he seemed to enjoy that much more. Will definitely look at getting more of the chocolate one but probably wouldn’t do vanilla again on its Own unless I’m using it as a base for smoothies

    Thank you for the opportunity.

  23. SingleDad 12/12/2018 at 5:12 pm

    We were lucky to get both the Delicious Vanilla and the Splendid Berry from Zeapure to trial.

    Growing Teen gobbled down the Berry one, and Health-Conscious Dad is delighted at the ingredients and that there’s no unnatural colour or flavours added.

    We did it with milk, and after a week of adding it to breakfasts, I’d say it’s given G.T. a bit more energy to get through his school day, and a definite kick start in the mornings!

    Vanilla vanilla was not a winner.

    It’s been dubbed in our household “Double Milk” and after trying it myself, I’d have to agree with G.T.. You can do it with water, but then, why not just drink milk?

    Like other Vanilla reviewers, we found Vanilla was like plain milk powder, and not great to stimulate appetite.

    Berry though! 🙂 We’ll buy that on the shelves again. It’ll replace Milo in our household (Milo’s never been the same, so glad to find a successor!).

    We’ll be adding Berry to our pantry. Hope to get a chance to review again soon!


    CONS: Vanilla too plain, creamy. Not exciting for teens.
    PRO: Berry. It was great that it was tasty AND tasty looking, without any of the bad stuff other milkshakes have (Nestle Quick etc). It’s basically become a treat in our household that’s actually a sneaky way to get a bit more hidden nutrition to a Fussy Eater teen every day 🙂

    Sure beats a sugary milkshake from Wendys/Maccas or the corner store.

    We were so excited to receive the Chocolate & Vanilla Shake Mix. We tried the Chocolate & my 10 year-old-son really didn’t like the taste at all. I tried it and the chocolate taste was very very milk. I have used the vanilla in a berry shake and that was better. Although my son was still not too happy about the chocolate one 🙂

  25. sez857 11/12/2018 at 10:27 pm

    We received the chocolate and vanilla shake mix. We tried the chocolate one first mixed with milk and unfortunately my 4 year old was not so keen on the taste. We have since tried the vanilla one mixed into a smoothie and has gone down a treat 🙂 would happily buy the vanilla one again.

  26. Rachael3 11/12/2018 at 7:18 pm

    My son absolutely loves this product. we used the berry one in our smoothies and he really enjoyed it. we will definitely buy it in the future

  27. Lauzieg 11/12/2018 at 4:52 pm

    We received the chocolate and vanilla Zeapure Shake Mix. This was great for my 10 year old and 7 year old daughters, they had it with their afternoon tea. I loved that it filled them up because they come home after school really hungry! Also love the Nutrients in it too and love that its not full of sugar

  28. Mrsbplus3 11/12/2018 at 12:52 pm

    Received the Chocolate and vanilla I must say that all three kids weren’t overly keen on the taste of the chocolate one but loved the vanilla or both mixed together into their smoothies or the vanilla one even with just milk would purchase the vanilla powder again three happy kids with that flavour

  29. rubyblue 11/12/2018 at 12:20 pm

    We received the Chocolate and the Vanilla shake mixes. We tried the Vanilla one (2 scoops with milk) first. 7yo son wasn’t convinced, so we added a scoop of Chocolate and he was much happier. I tried the Vanilla one on it’s own, and to me it tasted like plain milk powder. But we’ve now found a happy balance – he has one scoop of Vanilla + one scoop of Chocolate + milk, into the blender, and he’s happy. He calls it “cookies and cream”.

  30. Sharon Goldsbro 11/12/2018 at 8:57 am

    We received both the chocolate and the vanilla Shake mix. Tried the choc one first – with milk in our Nutribullet.
    Both kids (aged 7 and 10) not so keen on that taste unfortunately….next day was the vanilla.
    This went down much better and tasted more like a ‘normal milkshake’.
    Would get this flavour again for sure!
