Do you know how hard it is to find a dairy-free protein shake that actually tastes good? It was like looking for a unicorn…until now. Vega protein is certified vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, and just as the name suggests – completely plant-based and devoid of dairy. This stuff is liquid gold (especially for us lactose intolerant peeps!).
Vega Protein & Greens (prices vary by size)
This protein is so versatile – use it to make a morning shake, smoothie bowl, overnight oats, waffles, and more. Check out Vega’s Recipe Center for a mountain of ideas.
It has 20 grams of protein, a whopping 2 servings of veggies (including kale, spinach, and broccoli), and is only 110 calories. It’s literally a salad in a glass – except, it tastes like dessert. It’s a great way to get those veggies in.
This one is my favorite from the product line. The mild vanilla flavor makes it a great base for seasonal shakes such as a fresh berry smoothie in the summer and a pumpkin spice one in the fall. I prefer to drink the shake blended with either almond or coconut milk because it’s so smooth and creamy.
This one is great for desserts and baking. Of course I love drinking my chocolate salad, but it also functions as a good cocoa powder for chocolate recipes such as protein power balls and mug cakes. Yum!
At about $1.50 per serving, you can’t go wrong. It’s probably the cheapest you’ll pay for a healthy breakfast.
Vega One Starter Bundle ($14.99)
A shake for each day of the week – how cool is that? Try them all and find your favorites before committing to an entire container. Test the shakes for an entire week to see how your body feels after drinking them. That’s a great price for a week’s worth of breakfasts, if you ask me.
And if you want more than just a shake, there is a super awesome recipe for Chocolate Donuts on the site – what!
Vega Sport Starter Bundle ($19.99)
This package includes singles of: Pre-Workout Energizer in Lemon Lime & Acai Berry, Endurance Gel in Raspberry & Orange Zest, Electrolyte Hydrator in Lemon Lime & Berry, Recovery Accelerator in Tropical & Apple Berry, Performance Protein Singles in Chocolate, Berry, and Vanilla, and Protein Bars in Chocolate Coconut (2) and Chocolate Peanut Butter (2).
It is well worth the small investment to find products that you can add right into your daily routine. If you’re really active, this might be a good bundle for you. I’ve gotten into the habit of working out 1-2 times a day and definitely noticed a change with the Pre-Workout Energizer. It gave me the boost I needed to power through my 5am workout! I also fell in love with the Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars and Berry Performance Protein – they both kept me full and satisfied for hours.
