The creators of Ample meal replacement drinks believe in real food. They also know that some days you simply don’t have time to prepare a nutritious balanced meal from whole foods, and that those days are when you are most at risk of trading health for convenience.
That’s why they claim Ample is the ultimate convenience meal, designed to keep you full and satisfied while providing complete nutrition with healthy fats, clean carbohydrates, complete proteins, probiotics, prebiotics, plenty of fibre, and plant-based micronutrients.
Products and Ingredients
Ample offers three natural, nutritious, drinkable meals. Choose from a regular 400 calorie meal or large 600 calories meal in any of their three formulas: Original, Vegan, and Keto. The Original formula is light and creamy, mildly sweet with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
Ample V is 100% plant-based, with complete proteins and a nutty taste like maple-sweetened oatmeal.
Ample K is a ketogenic formula with only 6 percent total carbs and a rich flavor of coconut, macadamia, cinnamon, and vanilla. All three Ample formulas are made with real, natural ingredients and contain no artificial sweeteners, no gluten, no soy, no GMO’s and no artificial flavoring.
How Does It Work?
Ample is easy to order and simple to prepare. To order, just go to the website and select the formula and meal size that best suits your diet and needs. Choose the number of bottles you want to receive, and whether you want a one-off order or a subscription so you never have to worry about running out.
Each bottle of Ample comes filled with pre-measured powdered formula, so when you are ready to drink it just add cold water or your milk of choice, shake well to mix, and enjoy!
They say each Ample formula has been carefully researched and designed to provide maximum nutrition no matter what type of lifestyle and diet you follow.
With complete proteins providing all essential amino acids, rich healthy fats delivering omega-3’s and MCT’s, organic superfoods such as cocoa and wheatgrass supplying an array of micronutrients, fibre from plants like tapioca and acacia, and 6 different strains of probiotics, every bottle of Ample takes the place of a complete, healthy, and satiating meal.

Cost and Price Plans
The cost per bottle of Ample depends on which formula, size, quantity, and order method you choose. For the Original formula in the regular 400 calorie meal size, a one time order of 12 bottles will be $90, or $7.50 per meal. For extra savings, sign up for a repeat order subscription.

Online reviews for Ample are largely positive. Customers posting on Ample’s facebook page praise the flavor and texture of all three formulas, comparing the taste to a vanilla milkshake.
Ample K is a clear favorite when it comes to taste, described by one customer as tasting “like cookie dough and melted ice cream.” An often repeated comment is that customers would prefer to be able to buy the powder in bulk, rather than individual plastic bottles, to reduce plastic use and waste.
Competitors and Alternatives
The most well-known meal replacement drink, and the product Ample is most often compared to, is clearly Soylent. Soylent is quite transparent in their labelling, which makes it easy to compare the two products.
Soylent is vegan and nut free, but does contain GMO ingredients, artificial flavors, soy and a small amount of gluten. While Soylent contains a higher percentage of the daily recommended intake of many micronutrients than Ample does, it also contains more than twice as much sugar, more carbohydrates, and less protein.
The biggest difference in the formulas are the sources of protein and fats used. All of the protein in Soylent comes from soy, while Ample uses blends of grass-fed whey, grass-fed collagen, pea protein, and brown rice protein.
Soylent’s fat sources are High Oleic Algal oil, Canola oil, and more soy, while Ample blends fats from coconut, macadamia, chia, and sunflower.
While many reviews also hand the award for best taste to Ample, Soylent is certainly the cheaper option at around $2 per 400 calories when purchased as powder.
