Vega One Organic All-in-One Shakes provide Plant-Based Nutrition

21

Smoothies are a daily ritual in our home, whether it’s a toasty 90 degrees out or snowing and hovering at the freezing mark. We simply bundle up! So I’m always interested in smoothie supplements, and had heard so many good things about Vega One Organic All-in-One Shakes (formerly known as Vegan One Nutritional Shakes). Vega offers a huge line of protein powders, but according to the company, Vega One is their best seller.

Vega One Organic All-in-One Shakes provide Plant-Based Nutrition

As the name implies, Vega One Organic All-in-One Shakes are actually intended as an addition water, milk alternative, or juice. To accurately test, I tried a couple flavors straight-up in a glass of cool water. I don’t typically like shake mixes in this fashion, but they were surprisingly drinkable – perfectly sweet, nice flavor, and just a bit of that protein powder texture that seems near impossible to avoid.

Nonetheless, I still liked the Vega One Nutritional Shakes best when blended with a frozen banana and milk alternative, for a true shake experience. It also cut down on the slight powdery texture and added a nice, naturally sweet flavor to the mix. Whether with water or a banana, I would personally use a little less than the recommended serving as it thickens tremendously! I tend to like thin and drinkable or super thick, cool and creamy, but not so much in between.

But it would be remiss if I didn’t discuss the actual nutrition aspect of Vega One Organic All-in-One Shakes. They recently went organic, and increased their protein per serving to 20 grams. But these aren’t just protein powders. They also contain omega 3 fatty acids (from seeds), probiotics, prebiotics, digestive enzymes, greens, and are fortified with vitamins and minerals.

I’ve included detailed information for the flavors that I tried, followed by a quick list of the other flavors available.

French Vanilla

So far, this flavor is my hands down favorite. It has the perfect sweetness and a nice warm vanilla flavor.

Chocolate

This one was pretty tasty, too, with a rich cocoa flavor that isn’t overly sweet nor too dark. I’ve just always been more of a vanilla person.

Berry

I thought this was good, but lacked the depth in flavor of the other two.

Loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, fiber, omega 3s, probiotics, prebiotics, and more, it’s actually a bit hard to believe how good this vegan supplemental mix tastes. I really liked the French Vanilla, voting the Chocolate in as a pleasant second. They do work well simply stirred into water or dairy-free milk alternative, but we liked them best when blended with a frozen banana, too, for a true cool and creamy shake experience.

  1. Thanks for the helpful article! I just found out at the age of 45 I have a dairy sensitivity. This is a very big change in my life as I have always enjoyed milk products but have been developing worse digestive issues over the last years. Now I need to refigure my whole eating plan. Your article has helped and I look forward to checking out your book. Thanks!

  2. I’m worried about my extremely picky vegan toddlers meal / nutrient intake these days. Any clue if this would be suitable for a 15 month old? I’d use less powder and maybe give it to her a few days a week if at all. . .

  3. Thank you for the informational review on Vega One shake. Just have some questions I hope you are so kind to provide answers: Do you know if this Vega all-in-one shake product still contains CAP (antibiotic: Chloramphenicol) in their new package? How much? What’s source(s) of this harmful chemical? Do you or any users you know had some side effect, tummy upset, after drinking Vega shake? My only experience was drinking a pack of ready-to-drink Vega Protein+Shake (chocolate flavor): taste ok, but had stomach upset afterwards for now the second day. I think it’s a light version of All-in-one (still 20g of protein, but all other nutrients are ~half). Do you have any comment or advice? Thanks

    • Hi Mike, unfortunately, I can’t provide any answers for you. These are questions that you would have to direct to the Vega team directly. I’m not affiliated with the company and haven’t heard of these concerns previously. Good luck!

  4. Alisa!! I am just so blessed to have found your website. I have your book as well. You always are so helpful, I found out I had dairy allergies at the age of 34. Everything was very hard for me..I am grateful for all your time and hard work and the team you have that helps you do all this amazing research. I come here very often for help as well as a great reminder I am not alone!!

  6. What does anyone recommend with the berry flavored one. Water is not working for me.

  7. Just purchased this. Have been using shakeology for a week (one daily shake for meal replacement( but I just can’t justify the cost! Glad to have found a protein/greens shake mix! Hope it works!

  8. Vega has a meal replacement shake exclusive for Target, too, Vega Essentials that is very close in nutrients to Vega One as far as I can tell, and at $35 for a tub (I believe it’s about 18 servings but don’t quote me) it’s inexpensive compared to other meal replacement shakes.

  9. Thank you so much, Alisa. I just found your website and I think it’s going to be very helpful for me. I just found out I have or might have some food allergies and/or intolerances, and I’m in the process of checking it out. I love your list of nutritional dairy-free shakes. Thank you again. – Barbara.

  10. Really great shake. Tried it a couple of months ago. Enjoy the chocolate flavor, but the vanilla might be more versatile for shakes.
