Take one or more servings daily for optimal health and vitality. Mix two level scoops of Vega into one and a half to two cups (12 to 16 fluid ounces) of cold water and shake well.
For those with smaller appetites, try just half a serving (one scoop). You can also use Vega as a boost to your favorite blended smoothie recipe. As with any high fiber product, start slowly and gradually increase intake over several days. Be sure to drink plenty of water with increased dietary fiber.
Natural chocolate flavor, xanthan gum.

The chocolate flavored Vega was an amazing find... most people go for smoothies which are great but I happen to really enjoy milkshakes, and with the right ingredients this makes a delicious vegan chocolate shake that is also really good for you, providing a broad spectrum of nutrients and minerals :-) My morning brew: 1 scoop of Vega 1 tablespoon (heaping) VitaMineral Green 1 tablespoon (heaping) VitaMineral Earth 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Maca 1 carton of Almond Breeze almond milk (chocolate) This makes a few servings that I either share, or have later in the day, and it really is yummy!!
I was surprised at how much I disliked this chocolate flavor. I will definitely have it, but I recommend the natural or berry flavor instead. Natural is my preference. 4/5.

Great vegan protein/meal replacement powder
Posted by Reviewer1309217 on Feb 25, 2013
I love vega, i have at least 1 shake a day. I LOVE that this is not only a vegan protein powder but that it also has 100% of the RDI for vitamins/minerals. I haven't been able to find another vegan option with this. That being said, i rate it only 4 stars as it IS very expensive. In the container there are 15 servings, and that averages out at $4 a serving if bought from iherb (and being in canada i also have to pay for shipping/duties). If the price was better (say $2-3 a serving instead of $4-5, i would give vega 5 stars for sure!)

The taste is horrible and it does not blend very well. Tried to blend it with water as it says on the box, but could not get it down. The only way I can drink this is blended with soy milk, banana and some cocoa powder. It might be healthy, but would never buy it again.
Can't live without it!

i started using this product in November of 2011. Ever on the hunt for the best "nutritional shake", I have to say that this is IT! This product has helped regulate my sugar cravings, and has been invaluable in aiding me to get my daily fiber. Keep up the great work! I am in LOVE with this product!
