Dr. Nugent’s Breakfast Latte Recipe

“I make a GlycoCafé latte every morning using vanilla TruPLENISH™. This looks like a coffee with half-and-half but it’s far healthier! When I make a GlycoCafé latte, I use a big cup, like the tumbler that comes in the TruHealth™ kit. Because of the thickness of the powder, an 8 oz. cup of coffee results in a beverage that’s a little too thick for my taste. I also add one scoop of Manapol® to the latte.”


  • 1 GlycoCafé slimstick
  • 1 single serve pouch or 2 scoops vanilla TruPLENISH shake
  • 1 scoop (500 mg) Manapol powder
  • Hot water

Mix together and enjoy!


Dr. Nugent’s Glyconutrient TruPLENISH Shake Recipe

“As for my Glyconutrient-packed TruPLENISH shake, I like to mix it with about 400ml of water and sometimes a splash of certified almond, coconut or organic milk. For this recipe, I prefer chocolate TruPLENISH. Then I add one scoop of Manapol and a teaspoon of Ambrotose® Complex or Advanced Ambrotose. This makes for a very thick shake because of the added Ambrotose. Once again, people can adjust the amount of liquid to fit their own taste.”


  • 1 single serve pouch or 2 scoops chocolate TruPLENISH shake
  • 1 scoop (500 mg) Manapol powder
  • 1 tsp Ambrotose Complex or Advanced Ambrotose
  • Cold water
  • Dash of almond, coconut or organic milk to taste
  • Ice if desired

Mix together and enjoy!

“My two recipes are not unusually exotic, but that’s what I like. I always use my shakes to take my Mannatech supplements as well. I hope you enjoy!”
