Vega Smoothie Review and Giveaway

Vega asked me to review their Vega Energizing Smoothie.  I love so many of the products that I had no trouble trying this line out! 

It promises to be
From the VEGA website: Energize your day with a convenient, on-the-go nutrient boost. Energizing Smoothie gives you the all-natural, plant-based goodness you expect from Vega—compete with protein, fiber and Omega-3—but unlike traditional smoothies, you only need water to shake and go. In four mouth-watering flavors: mixed tropical fruits, chocolate, vanilla almond and berries (plus an unflavored natural), Energizing Smoothie is so delicious it will make you forget how healthy it is.
One serving of Vega Energizing Smoothie features
  • Two servings of veggies
  • 10 g of complete, plant-based protein
  • 5 g of fiber
  • 1 g of Omega-3
Just add water, shake and go!

Now, if you have been reading I do drink my morning VEGA ONE nutritional shake every morning and I swear by it.  The Vega Energizing Smoothie is not meant to replace this shake but more of a nutritional boost for during your day....kind of like a very healthy snack.  I would also look at it as a substitute for one of those Emergen C packets alot of people take...I've taken them when you just feel a bit run down. 

I tried two of the packets- it came with 5...and I'm going to share some with you!  The two I tried are the Bodacious Berry, and Choc-o-lot.  They say that you can take with water, juice or a non-dairy beverage.  The first one I tried was on a boat and seriously just needed to have something good in my body and had thrown one of the packets in my pocketbook. 

I like that they are individually packaged so that you can throw
 them in a suitcase or pocketbook without worrying

I like that even though it had all the nutrients that I wanted
I didn't have to pay for it with a million calories.  Only 90 if you use water!

I tried this one with just water because
I wanted to give a fair review--and you can't always carry around almond milk or juice.   
I thought it was okay with the water but definitely not 
how I would drink it all the time.  
It was doable though so after a race I could see putting a packet in my bag check and just mixing it on the spot in a bottle. 
I do think I would have more preferred it with a juice or almond milk.   

The second one: Choc-o-lot

 The second one I tried I was in a rush again...
I'm thinking this "on the go" concept is a  good one;).
I tried this one with almond milk and mixed it in the car on the way to the library
with my Vega Shaker.
I really enjoyed this one. 
 It was like a creamy chocolate milk. 
It was fine with my senstive stomach and...
My kids even took a few sips and it was "kid approved"!
(That says a lot about the taste...cause they don't like much)

The Great thing about these Smoothie's is you can take them anywhere, get the healthy nutrients you need to feel good and it tastes good!

I'm going to share the wealth and let you have a chance to try VEGA Energizing Smoothie.
