Product Review: Vega Protein & Greens

One day a couple of weeks ago, I came home from school and this was waiting for me. As some of you might know, I’m all about my shakes and smoothies so anything that goes with that theme is a bonus. I’ve used Vega protein powders in the past, but they’ve always been the all-in-one nutritional shakes so this is a little different. Here’s what I thought about it:

-The texture’s a little grainy. At first I thought it was seeds from the berries that were in my smoothie, but I changed up the fruit and realized that it was indeed the powder

-20g of protein per serving, (generally, I only use half a scoop so only 10g)

-Tastes good in a smoothie, in a glass of juice, or just in water

-The flavour is true to taste, (we bought the berry one)

When comparing the protein & greens to the all-in-one shake, I think that the all-in-one shake comes out on top. The flavour of the Berry is true to taste like I said, but I think the texture threw me off. I haven’t encountered that gritty taste when I had the all-in-one chocolate shake.

 

Running Fast, Lifting Heavy Approved: Unfortunately, I’m going to say no…I just can’t get past the texture (despite it tasting good).

  1. I am always on the lookout for protein supplements – right now I’m only using plain whey protein in my smoothies. Aside from texture and taste, which are definitely important, what else are your major considerations on which ones you prefer or use?

    • I consider cost/serving and the quantity of the serving. I also consider if it’s a whey concentrate vs. isolate, since isolates absorb a little quicker (although are a little pricier). I’m actually an ambassador for a supplement company called American Metabolix and will be doing a review on their whey in the coming weeks…stay tuned!
