Vega Energizing Smoothie Review

Hey friends!

How is life treating you? I am happy! Yesterday was great–and I totally channeled some of the motivations I mentioned yesterday. No mind giving up over here! 😉

My boss came and did an evaluation on my performance as a BodyPUMP instructor yesterday morning, and it went really well. I was super stoked! Not gonna lie, I am in my element up there, so it wasn’t too tough having her there, but I do always get jitters right before I have to teach for my boss. Hah.

Zumba last night was fabulous. Dinner was epic (recipe soon). And I slept like it was my job last night. (Wouldn’t that be the best?!)

So yah. Life is peachy.

*****

You know what I think helps me keep my energy levels up while tackling my to-do’s, work, and training?? Smoothies. I have one almost every day, you guys.

I pack ’em full of protein powder, ice, berries, spinach, stevia, and almond milk. And boy are they tasty!

So of course I was totally game when Vega reached out to me to try some of their energizing smoothie blends. Ummmmm YAH! Didn’t have to ask twice. 😉

Vega Energizing Smoothie Review

The awesome MyVega people sent me sample packs of the Vega Energizing Smoothie in a variety of different flavors, and I actually squealed out loud! Totally squealed. By the way, my husband no longer thinks it’s weird to get random foodie packages on our doorstep, with my reactions rivaling opening presents.

Anyways.

These smoothies rock because they are Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy free, Soy free, and No-sugar added free.

But they are not taste free, people!

Plus, they boast 10 grams of protein, less than 100 calories in each packet, and all you have to do is add water (or any other beverage of your choice), and shake.

YAH. Nothing beats 2 servings of veggies, no-sugar added junk, and protein in one nifty packet.

Nutrition on the go? Yes, please!

I liked most of the flavors, but my favorites were the Bodacious Berry and the Choc-A-Lot. (duh.)

I liked the berry flavored one because it tasted similar to my smoothies -and since I drink those an awful lot, I obviously enjoy them. And of course, the chocolate smoothie was, well, chocolate.

‘Nuff said.

I didn’t particularly enjoy the Vanilla Almondilla one though. I think the flavor was too chalky or ‘off’ for my taste. But then again, I am not vegan, nor am I dairy-free, so maybe that tastes normal to people who only eat that way?

Who knows?

All I know is that MyVega is the perfect place to shop for nutritious products that fuel a healthy lifestyle and fitness goals. Remember the protein I tried from them? Yep, still enjoying those and the gels too.

Thank you MyVega for letting me try these awesome, plant-based products. I try my best to eat as clean and close to ‘earth’ and plant-based as possible, so these smoothies were right up my alley.

And now I am off to a freaking-early spinning class, a quick run, and a delicious smoothie.

Ahhhhhh yes.

Have a FABULOUS day <3

What have YOU tried from MyVega?? Are YOU dairy or soy free?? What do YOU look for in packaged nutrition products??

  1. I get to try these soon – I’m so excited! The vanilla almond sounds so good! Glad you liked them and they do pack a pretty powerful punch – 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber? Awesome!

  2. Sadly, I have not tried any products from MyVega. But after reading your review, I think I am going to order some of Vega Energizing Smoothies.

  3. I’ve never tried these before but I’ve seen them on other blogs and they always look interesting. i’ve totally been feeling the smoothies this summer too–SO refreshing after some of my runs in the heat!

  4. I felt the same way about vanilla almondilla! I did like the chocolate flavor, though.

  5. I’ve seen those but haven’t tried them yet! Do you know if they’re gluten free to? I’m assuming so…

  6. I’ve yet to try the smoothies but I love the chocolate protein powder. I’ve heard nothing but good things except that like you, most people don’t like the vanilla almondilla.

  7. Choco-A-Lot would be my favorite, too!

  8. I just recently discovered their products and now I’m hooked – they make great stuff! I need to try the berry flavor STAT!

    since i ran out of herbalife, i’ve been planning on switching to a vegan protein powder, but vega is so expensive. i need to just charge it already though, because i’ve been dying without my protein powder for smoothies!!

  10. They look awesome! I’ve always wanted to try protein powder but I worry that liquid (in the form of smoothies) wouldn’t fill me up as much as solid food and then I’d be hungry again in 2 minutes haha! I wonder if I can get my hands on Vega here in Australia?

  11. Love their products! I’ve been using them for almost 2 years and what a difference.
