Review Vega One Protein and Greens Vanilla


Protein powder is a good way to make certain you are getting enough protein in your diet. Powder can be used in many different ways. It can be added to drinks, baking mixes, smoothies, yogurt and oatmeal. Vega Protein and Greens Vanilla is a good source of protein with 20 grams pf protein and 2 servings of vegetable.

Vega One Protein and Greens is a great source of plant protein. It is a gluten free and non-gmo product. Protein sources include pea, sachi inchi, hemp seed, and sprouted whole grain brown rice. Powered greens blend includes alfalfa grass, spinach, broccoli, kale, and papaya. French vanilla and stevia are included for the sweet vanilla flavor.

The flavor of some protein powder can be questionable. I was surprised by the sweet flavor of the Vega One Protein and Greens. There is a strong stevia taste but you can also taste the vanilla. It tastes almost like cake batter. The sweetness is a surprise but to me it was a pleasant surprise. It makes me forget that there is no sugar in it. I did not experience an after taste like I have with different protein powder. There is some chalky flavor but it is not over powering. The flavor can be enjoyable.

The texture of protein is another thing that can be difficult to enjoy. For the most part, Vega One Protein and Greens mixed in well. The only time when I found that it did have a powdery texture was when I forgot to put the ball in the shaker cup. It still mixed pretty well without the mixer element. It mixed great with almond milk and coconut milk. It works perfect with a smoothie making it extra smooth. It also seems to give it a creamy texture. I also tried mixing some with gluten free pancake mix. It mixed in great and added a nice sweet flavor to the pancakes.

Vega One Protein and Greens is a great way to get protein and a couple extra servings of vegetables. You can mix it with non-dairy milk, smoothies and baking mixes. Take note that the taste is pretty sweet. The powder mixed with almond milk had an almost a chocolate flavor. It also added a creamy texture to my smoothies. I can’t have dairy so this was a great addition to my diet.

I purchased mine at Walmart for around twenty-five dollars. The price is comparable to other protein powder. It may be a little more expensive than some but it was worth it for me. I will buy it again. I found a fruit flavored version on Amazon that I might have to try next time.
