Adventures with Little Miss


Smooth Smoothie!

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

Berry Ingredients:
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!

Mini Product Review: Greens+ Smoothie!

First all I have to say is the bag TOTALLY LIES!! My best friend E. is doing a product review of the Greens+ Smoothie and well I had been considering trying those products.  Well last weekend E and her hubby came down to my little B&B.  So Saturday morning before our great adventure (posts to come) E. made up 2 green drinks with apple juice.

It was so not good!!! The bag truely lies!! So I deciede to blend it with some froozen stawberries and ice.  Still no change still tasted HORRID.  FYI Pinching your nose so does not help either.  Well I drank it all. I had to chase each gulp with water.

Note: Just because it says on the outside smooth texture and great taste – be weary. Products LIE!!


What A Great Good Friday!

Wonderful Day.  I got to sleep in and then got to sun on my balcony with a good book and a delicious Smoothie!
