Shake Your Vega Baby!

My blender broke. I was going to make watermelon margaritas, it was game 2 of the Lakers vs. Celtics in the NBA Finals, and I was out to prove I could make an amazing meal, complete with home made margaritas, for The Boyfriend. I keep my blender on top of my refrigerator (What? Don't you?) and so in trying to reach over my head and grab my Kitchen Aid blender, it somehow cut loose from my grip and dropped to the kitchen floor, shattering into a million little pieces. Then my camera died and kitchen sink decided that the garbage disposal had called in sick and suddenly I was left with a disgusting mess, all in one night. (Is it any wonder my posting has been light?)

Anyways, I was freaking out about my dead blender, thinking now was the time to max out my credit card and buy a Vita-Mix, when a wonderful brown box arrived on my doorstep.

The contents included a precious bag of delicious powder, that when mixed with water (yes, just water!) turns into an amazingly thick, rich shake, perfect for a girl on the go.

To say I'm in love with Vega Shake & Go Smoothie in Choc-O-Lot would be an understatement. It would also be cheating on my first Vega love, Vega Vibrancy Bars in Chocolate Decadence, but all things considered I think my bars might understand.

Some insane facts about Vega Shake & Go Smoothie mix:
  • Two servings of veggies
  • 2500 mg Omega-3-6-9
  • 11 g complete protein
  • Only 100 calories
  • 1 billion probiotic cultures
Vega Shake & Go Smoothie is made exclusively from all natural plant-based whole foods.  Alkaline-forming and easy to digest, it provides premium nutrition in a convenient, affordable, on-the-go format. Clean, green, and 65% raw organic, Shake & Go Smoothie contains no common allergens, including corn, dairy gluten, soy, wheat and yeast. And it has only 6 grams of sugar!  
Formulated by Brendan Brazier, vegan, professional Ironman triathlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, Vega Shake & Go Smoothie offers plant-based super food goodness you expect from Vega. But unlike traditional smoothies, you only need water to shake and go. The four mouth-watering flavours of blended tropical fruits, chocolate, vanilla almond, and berries will make you forget how healthy it is. Or how easy it was to make.

I just can't wait to bring my new-found love with me to China in a few weeks. The convenience in this mix is unparalleled. No blender necessary? Probiotics, Veggies and Protein? And four incredible flavors (I can't wait to try all of them!), including:


Choc-O-Lot

Bodacious Berry

Tropical Tango

Vanilla Almondilla

Which flavor would you most like to try? Here's where you can get your own Vega Shake & Go Smoothie!
