Product Review: Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake

When I try something and immediately like it, it usually means I’m headed towards an obsession for it.  This very thing has happened since Vega kindly sent me some of their Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake Sample Packets, French Vanilla flavor.

Vega One French Vanilla

Directly from their website:  {“Formulated by Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega One is free from dairy, gluten and soy, and contains no added sugar, artificial flavours, colours or sweeteners”}.

This plant-based nutritional shake also contains:

50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals
15 g protein-plant based blend (pea, saviseed, hemp seed, sprouted whole grain rice)
6 g fiber-soluble and insoluble
1.5 g Omega-3-from white chia, whole flax seed, hemp
Antioxidants-Maqui, goji, acai berries, pomegranate seed, mangosteen, grape seed extract
Probiotics-1 billion CFU dairy-free probiotics
Greens-equivalent of 3 servings of vegetables (chlorella, alfalfa grass, spinach leaf, broccoli, kale)

*Vega One used to be called Vega Whole Food Optimizer.  A great site to check out the differences between the two can be found HERE*

Vega currently sells their Vega One All-In-One Shakes in these flavors:  French Vanilla, Berry, Chocolate, Vanilla Chai and Natural flavor.

I’ve tried the Berry, Vanilla Chai, Natural, and French Vanilla Flavors.  Both the Vanilla Chai and French Vanilla are my favorites.  The Natural Flavor is also good, and might be the ideal flavor to add fruit or other ingredients to for added flavor.

What I really like about these Vega One shakes is that they are so easy to make.  Just add water, shake, and go!  There is always the option to add other ingredients such as almond milk, juice, or fruit if you prefer.  I like mine the best by just adding water.

I often make my Vega One Shakes and Vega Energizing Smoothies in Blender Bottles-yes, I’m actually obsessed with BOTH Vega products.  I have found that the wire whisk that comes inside of a Blender Bottle really helps mix up the powder/water the best.  Once you are done, I highly recommend washing out the Blender Bottle or any bottle you use immediately.  The powder mix tends to stick to the sides of the bottle and can be tough to get off if you don’t rinse it right after use.

Vega One is available in the single serve packets or in tubs (pictured HERE).  In my opinion, a serving of Vega One makes for a healthy snack in between meals or a nice recovery option after a workout.  I also enjoy Vega’s Energizing Smoothie for a snack or recovery option.  However, when comparing the two, the Vega One Shakes feel more filling-and could possibly replace a light meal.

Would I recommend Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shakes?  Absolutely!  The only drawback for me is the cost.  It’s a little on the expensive side, but I reason that it is a product I enjoy and it has tons of healthy benefits!

Are you interested in trying Vega One Shake or any of Vega’s awesome products?
