Vega One Nutritional Shake Vanilla Chai -- 30.8 oz
Great taste, not gritty.
I love this shake! It is gluten and dairy free and has a great list of nutritional ingredients. I need extra protein and with this shake I get more nutrition than just a plain protein shake. If I'm in a pinch I can even make this with just water vs almond or coconut milk and it still tastes great and is filling!

Hype over Health
My local health food store recently canceled my favorite vegan protein supplement (Ultimate Meal), installing several rows of Vega One products in shiny metallic silver canisters. My friend Tony says about it, "It's really yummy, and it's good for you." Not the most sophisticated of evaluations, but he demanded I try it, so I purchased some. My suspicion wasn't allayed by experience.
Vega One does taste like candy, thanks to gobs of flavorings and stevia. The vanilla chai flavor tastes almost exactly like a Speculaas cookie. Each serving is about 1/7 fiber by weight, and less than 1/2 protein powder by weight. According to the label, each serving has a perfect 50% of all manner of vitamins and minerals - just like a vitamin pill.
It doesn't have a lot of calories or protein per serving, and the stuff's expensive, at over $2.60 per serving even at VitaCost's low prices. Each serving has only about 130 calories. This isn't enough for
This product is basically a highly flavored vitamin pill with a bit of vegetable protein and fiber thrown in. If you are looking for a whole food, raw and vegan alternative, I recommend The Ultimate Meal.

Yummy vegan protein
My partner and I are athletes, sometimes working out twice a day. So we needed some extra nutrients to supplement our diet, but wanted a vegan brand. This Vega One tastes great and mixes really well with just water. If I have the time I'll blend it with almond milk and a banana. It's easy on the stomach too :) Highly recommended!
