I am using the Vega mix and using water with it is horrible. Can others share what you mix with your vega products? Also, how much liquid do you use to keep it from being so thick :psycho:
Thanks
Felicia

I don't use Vega, but with any of the mixes, I throw them into a blend with some fruit. I have a Vita-Mix, so I take frozen bananas and maybe strawberries or blueberries with my pea and rice protein to make a very think shake or ice cream like treat. The chocolate Rice protein power is awesome for making chocolate shakes. The Vanilla I can't stand. I would rather use plain and throw in real vanilla. The pea protein has a very smooth flavor and gives an also malt like taste to the shakes.

The only good Vega I've had in the Vanilla Chai. The other flavors are gross.

i'll assume vega is like any other food/protein powder, essentially gross when used with just water. recently i've been making protein shakes with juice, soy milk, blueberries, strawberries and ice - and they're delicious. just experiment a little, water only sucks :)

The best way i've found to cover up the taste is the following,smoothie with blueberries and strawberries, vanilla almond milk, peanut butter (be generous), this is what covers up the taste the most. the peanut butter will make it a thick smoothie but it's a tastier way to take down the vega. it ends up tasting like pb&j.

Also the whole food supplements are the ones that don't really taste that great, the post workout ones aren't that bad at all really. Especially the Vanilla Chai one like chrisjs was saying.

Which Vega products are you using?

There are lots of different ones and I like some way more than others.

Some of the flavors like berry for example are hard to overcome I have found, but others I really like, such as chocolate, natural, and all the sports products, etc.

Blending with fruits, especially strong tasting berries could help, etc.

I think the Sport Pre-Workout energy drinks are fantastic tasting and the vanilla sport protein is awesome.

The new Shake and Go Smoothies are all pretty good, but in general, I don't like berry as much in any of the Vega products.

Hope you find ways to enjoy them!

All the best!

I can't drink any of the Vega products with just water, but I LOVE them in smoothies. Usually I use a banana, berries, and apple or whatever other fruit I have laying around. I haven't found a Vega flavour that doesn't taste good in it.

The chocolate Vega I mix with rice milk, I just don't like it with only water. The rice milk also gives it more consistency. I use a shaker cup and fill it with rice milk and then one scoop of Vega, usually chocolate. My second favorite would have to be the vanilla chai. I find the berry flavor a bit too sweet and flavorful for my tastes. You can also blend them with fruit, but I prefer the faster method of pouring, shaking, and consuming! :)

I drink it with water daily, but it wasn't always like that. I used to use rice milk or blenders, smoothies, etc.

But now I'm not only used to it, I really like it with just water. I think lots of the Vega products taste great with water.

But if water isn't your thing.....try the blenders, the fruits, the chocolate or peanut butter flavors, flavored rice or almond milks, etc.

That should do the trick :)

Also try Vega Shake & Go Smoothie. That is great tasting. And Vega Sport Performance Optimizer (pre-workout energy drink).

Great stuff!

I haven't tried Vega yet, but normally bananas seem to be the number one ingredient to cover up nasty protein shake flavors.
