The Purple Vega Shake

Purple Shake 01

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.

Vega Shake 02

Why I like Vega – it includes:

  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
  • 15 g protein
  • 6 g fiber
  • 1.5 g Omega-3
  • Antioxidants
  • Probiotics
  • Greens

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. 1 orange, peeled
  2. 1/2 cup organic blueberries, frozen
  3. 1 cup raw almond milk
  4. 1 tsp. organic flaxseed
  5. 1/2 banana, frozen
  6. 5 cubes ice
  7. 1-2 scoops Vega One (original)
  8. 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:

Chocolate

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!

Vega Shake 04

Berry

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).

Vanilla Chai

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!

Vega Shake 05

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.

Do you ever layer your smoothies? What’s the best flavour of protein powder you’ve tried?

    I’ve never layered – but that’s a fantastic (and pretty!) idea :) Knowing and understanding every ingredient is a huge deal for me too…

    Vega is by far my favorite, I haven’t seen the Vanilla Chai yet, I must find it!

    I’ve been looking for a new protein/nutritional supplement. There are so many out there that have such a horrible ingredient list. I like that Vega is full of stuff I can pronounce and know what it is. Others have recommended Vega so I think I’ll give it a try!

    Healthy and a beautiful colour – what an exotic recipe :D

    I like to layer my smoothies sometimes, too. It’s like a smoothie parfait.

    I’m a huge Vega fan. Vanilla Chai is my favorite flavor.

    Love it. Might try it this weekend!

  8. Leonor @FoodFaithFitness

    I have never tried Vega. I like that it is a very ‘natural’ protein.

    I’ve never tried Vega, and I’ve never layered. Good thing I have your blog to read! LOL! xo
