Product Review: Vega Energizing Smoothie

Product: Vega Energizing Smoothie


Flavors Reviewed: Bodacious Berry, Choc-a-lot, Oh Natural, Tropical Tango, and Vanilla Almondilla

About Vega: Vega is a plant-based nutrition company founded by vegan professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling health author Brendan Brazier. The company specializes in clean, plant-based nutrition products.

The Vega Energizing Smoothie provides a convenient, on-the-go nutrient boost, and is a great way to energize your day! The Energizing Smoothie is alkaline-forming, free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners.

The Energizing Smoothie gives you the all-natural, plant-based goodness you expect from Vega, complete with protein, fiber and omega-3s. And unlike traditional smoothies and powders, this mix combines easily with water so you can simply shake and go!

The One Green Planet Verdict: Vega continues to be the superstar of vegan protein powders with their amazing Energizing Smoothies. We sampled all five flavors and loved each one!

The Oh Natural (vanilla flavored), Choc-a-lot, and Vanilla Almondilla flavors are the most traditional of the group, and taste best mixed with a plant-based milk or in a smoothie. The Tropical Tango and Bodacious Berry mixes are also awesome options if you’re looking for a fruity flavor.

Each powder is available in convenient, on-the-go, single serving packs or larger pouches that come with measuring scoops. One serving packs in two servings of vegetables, 10 grams of complete plant-based protein, 5 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of omega-3s. This combination of nutrients makes Vega Energizing Smoothies a winner for refueling and staying energized throughout your busy day.
