Vega Smoothie Review & Giveaway

Vega (HERE) recently contacted me to see if I'd be interested in trying out some Energizing Smoothies?  Sure.  Vega Energizing Smoothies (HERE) are great on-the-go smoothie options with two servings of veggies 10 g of complete (what, seriously?!?!), plant-based protein, 5 g of fiber and 1 g of Omega-3.  Vega is a nutritional company based on using plant-based products for optimal nutrition and health.



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 great-sounding flavors: mixed tropical fruits, chocolate, vanilla almond and berries (plus an unflavored natural)



You just mix it with water and drink up.  At first, I mixed my Vanilla Almond Smoothie without ice.  It looked icky and lumpy.  It also was green, which surprised me.  It didn't taste too well with tap water.  But, after I filled up my glass with ice cubes, it was much more refreshing.  The taste still wasn't what I expected with lots of the flavors.  They were flavorful, but not exactly what I would call sweet.  If you are looking for a "treat", or an alternative to stopping by Orange Julius or Jamba Juice, then these are not it.  However, if you are looking for healthy, on the go fix, then these smoothies could be for you.  There is no way I could get my kids to try these -- though I did.

I also really liked the chocolate and berry flavors over the other flavors I tried; more than vanilla almond (pictured above).  I didn't care for the tropical fruits flavor.  Not my thing.

  8. AND a current Vega user!! I have used the pre -workout energizer in Lemon Lime and Acai flavors prior to my runs and Cross fit WODS. I like both flavors. I am currently using the Recovery Accelerator in Apple Berry, and the Performance Protein in Chocolate. I love how each product can be mixed easily with just water, or if you want to add a little more, coconut water/milk or juices. I also love the fact all products are gluten free.
