Vega Energizing Smoothie Review
What You Should Know
Vega Energizing Smoothie provides all the protein, omega 3 fatty acids and fiber you need for a quick snack or refreshing pick-me-up. Unlike other smoothies, all you need to add is water, which keeps the calorie totals in a healthy range for dieting. Each pouch contains 12 servings and each serving supplies about 93 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. There are five flavors – Bodacious Berry, Vanilla Almondilla, Tropical Tango, Choc-o-lot and Natural.

In all there are five flavors, or four flavors and a natural Vega Energizing Smoothie. The flavored varieties contain natural flavors in addition to the abovementioned ingredients. Vega Energizing Smoothie is not designed as a meal replacement shake, thus the missing vitamins. This product aims to supply protein, fiber and omega fatty acids as a means of energy. Energy is the fuel your body needs to keep going. Some people read the word Energizing and assume there is caffeine or some other stimulant in the Vega Energizing Smoothie, but that is not the case. The word Energy, in the context of this product, literally means supplying energy to the body via healthy, all-natural means.
In terms of dieting, Vega Energizing Smoothie is quite impressive. For just under 100 calories the dieter gains 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber – along with other healthy blends and some digestive enzymes. Even if the dieter does not need the extra energy, so to speak, this powder is ideal for spiking the nutritional values of sugar free pudding, green smoothies and other diet foods.
The price is slightly higher than you’d expect at $20 for 12 servings, but all of Vega’s products are priced high. Dieters choose Vega Energizing Smoothie because they want a healthy, lean source of vegan protein that tastes great.
- All ingredients are listed on the Vega website.
- The dieter can add the energizing powder to other foods.
- Lean, healthy source of protein, fiber, omega fatty acids and other nutritional elements.
- May not be safe for dieters with certain food allergies.
Vega Energizing Shake is a fantastic product for the vegan dieter. The price is higher than non-vegan products, but that is to be expected. We love Vega products because the company is 100% transparent. There are no hidden ingredients and that’s what healthy living should be all about. This product can be used along with a healthy diet and exercise program to lose weight, but the shake mix itself will not promote weight loss.
