Product Review - Vega One Starter Kit
There is also an information brochure and some packets of shake mixes in different flavours. I tried them all - though using recipes of my own devising instead of the ones suggested. I've had Vega shakes in the past and found them a little gritty with a funny after taste if had by themselves so knew I'd enjoy the shakes more if blended into a smoothie.
For the Chocolate Smoothie powder I added Peanut Butter, Dates, and Chocolate Soymilk. So, I created something which is maybe not the healthiest smoothie out there, but really good!
For the Vanilla Smoothie powder I added frozen Banana and Mango, with a touch of agave. This was super tasty and very much like a chilled milkshake!
For the Berry Smoothie powder I added frozen berries, half an avocado and some spinach leaves along with some agave. Couldn't tell the avocado or spinach was in there (though the purple colour was a little muted) and liked the creaminess from the avocado.
I found this time the taste / texture more pleasing, and noted that if I kept the smoothie overnight to have in the morning then the slight unpleasantness was not there, so if you have tried this in the past and noted the same - then try making the mix as a smoothie and a day in advance.
Recommended - yep, though as a blended drink for me please. Have you tried the Vega One starter kit? any other comments to make??
