Last Friday I was out with hunnie while he was buying an iPhone (I am super jealous). I wondered around the mall where he was, and went into Your Good Health. I had been looking for some sort of smoothie mix and I did not enjoy Greens+ Smoothie. So I bought Vega Shake and Go in Berry flavor.
Here are the facts about the mix:
Each serving of Vega Shake & Go Smoothie includes:
- Two servings of veggies
- 2500 mg Omega-3-6-9
- 11 g complete protein
- Only 100 calories
- 1 billion probiotics cultures
organic green pea protein, organic coconut palm nectar, flaxseed, hemp protein, organic sprouted brown rice protein, organic green food blend (alfalfa grass, organic kale leaf, organic spinach leaf, organic broccoli sprout, spirulina), natural flavours, xanthan gum, beet powder, digestive enzyme blend, citric acid, malic acid, dairy-free probiotic blend (L. acidophilus, B. bifidum).
I tired drinking it straight, it was ok, a bit grainy although tasted better that the Greens+. Although I will note that I did choose to make it into a blended smoothie. I mixed in raspberries and some OJ. It was great and enjoyable. I will continue to drink this. I like that it does not make and claim that it will make you feel more full of energy or that you will see a change in a certain number of days. They only claim that it mixes well with water and that is true. I hope to try the other flavours as well.
Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe or brand please do share!
