Product Review: Vega Shake & Go Smoothie, Choc-a-Lot

I had read about some Vega products on other blogs and seen the brand at the local whole foods market, so I decided to try a Vega smoothie. I LOVE chocolate and went with the Vega Shake & Go Smoothie in Choc-a-Lot. One serving is 30g, has 120 calories, 3g of fat, 12g of carbs (5g fiber), and 12g of protein. Also, it is advertised as having 2 servings of vegetables in it! 

It is a vegan product and contains no common allergens, including corn, dairy gluten, soy, wheat and yeast. Typically, I would worry that a product like this would not taste good, but I wanted to try it and shelled out the $23 for a 300g bag. The directions say to mix it with water, but I like my smoothies and protein shakes with milk, so I mixed it with milk...and it was delicious! It tasted chocolatey and the texture was good. It wasn't really a smoothie texture, it was kind of watery, like a protein shake. However, the taste was good and apparently it is healthy so I guess it was worth the price. Give it a try!
