Vega Energizing Smoothie according to Vega:
Energize your day with a convenient, on-the-go nutrient boost. Energizing Smoothie gives you the all-natural, plant-based goodness you expect from Vega—compete with protein, fiber and Omega-3—but unlike traditional smoothies, you only need water to shake and go. In four mouth-watering flavors: mixed tropical fruits, chocolate, vanilla almond and berries (plus an unflavored natural), Energizing Smoothie is so delicious it will make you forget how healthy it is.
One serving of Vega Energizing Smoothie features
- Two servings of veggies
- 10 g of complete, plant-based protein
- 5 g of fiber
- 1 g of Omega-3
Just add water, shake and go!
Formulated by Brendan Brazier, vegan professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling health author on plant-based nutrition, Vega Energizing Smoothie is alkaline-forming, free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Available in Bodacious Berry, Choc-a-lot, Oh Natural, Tropical Tango and Vanilla Almondilla flavors.
I wish I had tried Vega products sooner. I can’t tell you how many people have recommended them to me, yet I still was unsure whether I would like them. I should have listened and gotten on the Vega bandwagon earlier.
I’ve been drinking the Vega Protein Recovery shake from GNC every single day after my runs and can tell a significant difference in how fast I am recovering from my workouts and runs.
The smoothie, like the protein powder, did not disappoint.
My favorite was Vanilla Almondilla! I love the taste of Almond so much so that when I make chocolate chip cookies and it calls for vanilla extract, I use almond instead. This shake was like dessert and was BEYOND DELICIOUS. I mixed mine with vanilla soy milk for an extra creamy treat. There are often products I test that I like but that I wouldn’t necessarily go out and buy on a regular basis. I WILL BE BUYING this shake. I love it. NOTE: I’ve read reviews of people who hated this flavor. I think it comes down to personal preference and if you like the taste of almond then this is the flavor for you.
Choc-a-lot was my next favorite. It tastes like dessert as well. I will be buying more of this flavor too!
Bodacious Berry, Oh Natural, and Tropical Tango are good. The OH Natural is very plain – so if you like that – this is the flavor for you. The berry and tropical flavor both tasted like a smoothie I could have made for myself with fruit. The only positive to the energizing smoothie over something I would make myself is convenience and calories. It’s low calorie and I can throw the packet in my purse and mix with water and drink any time.
Overall I HIGHLY recommend these smoothies!
