Vanilla Vega Protein Smoothie Recipe

Vega One French Vanilla is more self-indulgent than your average vanilla.

Kick it up a notch, by blending it with Avocado for an added smooth texture or add a little ice with cold-brew coffee for a morning kick. Even if you're pressed for time, you can skip the blender and add it to a protein shaker cup with ice.


Chocolate Vega Protein Smoothie Recipe

With only 1 gram of sugar per serving, there really is no need for sugary chocolate milk when you have Vega Protein & Greens or Vega Sports Performance Protein.

Start your day off by pairing either of these powders with avocado, banana, nut butter or for more of a mocha morning you should try blending with cold-brew coffee. The great thing about Vega protein and greens is that you'll have the added benefit of fitting in veggies and greens into your hectic day ahead.

Each serving of Vega Protein & Greens contains:

  • 20 grams plant-based protein
  • 25% DV of 12 vitamins and minerals
  • 16% DV fiber
  • 1g Omega-3 ALA

Each serving of Vega Sports Performance Protein contains:
