I’m a huge Vega fan, so I was elated to try their newest product, Vega One. I kept seeing ads for it everywhere which kept making me want to try it.
Why I like Vega – it includes:
- 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
- 15 g protein
- 6 g fiber
- 1.5 g Omega-3
It’s also very natural. I understand every ingredient on the label, which is pretty important to me. Vega One is special because it’s not just a protein powder, but also a nutritional supplement.
I had so much fun trying Vega One out. I took it to the beach for volleyball, fueled up in the morning for breakfast, and tried it after my workout. It’s hard to tell after having it only a few times, but I felt like I recovered faster than I usually do.
Here’s a tasty breakfast for on the go:
The Purple Vega Smoothie
- 1 orange, peeled
- 1/2 cup organic blueberries, frozen
- 1 cup raw almond milk
- 1 tsp. organic flaxseed
- 1/2 banana, frozen
- 5 cubes ice
- 1-2 scoops Vega One (original)
- 2 handfuls organic spinach
Just blend the frozen fruit, flax, almond milk, spinach, and protein powder up and enjoy! I left the spinach out and just made a purple batch of smoothie. Then I left a little smoothie in the blender and loaded it up with spinach. All because I like layering smoothies…I think it’s so pretty!
Back to Vega One…here’s what I thought of the individual flavours:
It’s very chocolaty, which makes me extremely happy! I blended it up with just almond milk and ice for a refreshing treat. It has a slightly chalky taste, but hardly any. I really enjoyed this one and think it would fantastic blended with natural peanut butter and bananas!
I drank this just shook up with almond milk and it was good as is. However, when I got to the bottom of the shaker cup, it was really thick and made me shudder a little bit. I think this flavour I would enjoy in fruit flavoured shakes better (which I make all the time).
Gotta save the best for last! I was so excited about this flavour…it sounded delicious. I blended it up with water, 1/2 frozen banana, and ice and drank it after a cardio workout. Dee-licous. In love with this flavour. Obviously, it’s not as versatile as the original flavour as far as making shakes, but I loved changing things up! This kind was my all time favourite!
I feel so good about using Vega because every ingredient is pure and healthy. There is no soy, no gluten, no dairy, no artificial flavours, no sugars, no colouring, or sweeteners. I love it SO much.
