Lunch on the Go – Take Two!

 

Over the past week, I’ve been trying out a new snack to have at work:

Vega Shake & Go Smoothies! There were three flavors available at Whole Foods: Vanilla Almond, Berry, and Chocolate. I went for Vanilla, but am thinking next time I’ll go for Chocolate.

The smoothie powder worked perfectly in my Blender Bottle:

(And yes, I do have three blender bottles…but I love them so much!!!!)

Look at these stats!

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

There really isn’t a lot of grittiness like in other powder drinks, but I will say the Almond flavor is a bit to much for me. It sort of tastes the way almond soap smells. :( But it’s not terrible! And I love having a snack that I know only has 100 calories and packs a nutritional punch!!

PLUS you just mix it with cold water!!

Yesterday, I shook up a serving and then put it in the fridge for an hour. It was ten times better super cold!!

Do you guys have powdered smoothies or drink mixes that you recommend?
