This is one of three different flavors for Vega. I like the berry flavor the most, but all three are great alkaline, whole-foods, plant-based mixes. They mix well with a banana and water, or into a smoothie, but I guess you can just drink them with water or nondairy milk.

I can't find any other product like Vega on the market; something that's vegan, raw, and balanced for an athletic lifestyle. Plus they taste great, and you don't feel weighted down after drinking the stuff. I think their website has a link for a free sample too.

I have to say, I am absolutely IN LOVE with this product! As a vegan, I have been searching for a product that tastes decent, is low in sugar, and has a good amount of protein. This gave me all that and so much more! First, the taste is great, especially compared to some other products on the market. It never did me any good to buy some of the others because they tasted so bad that I could never finish them, and would end up wasting a great deal of product, and therefore MONEY. The chocolate VEGA tastes almost like a chocolate mocha. It is rich and filling, and mixes well. It is full of vitamins, fiber, protein and antioxidants. It uses stevia, but stevia is not listed in the "ingredients" section, rather, it is listed in the listed in with the nutrients. If you are incredibly sensitive to the taste of stevia this may not be the product for you. I generally do not like stevia; however, I cannot really taste the stevia in this.

I have used VEGA for months now. My energy levels have increased, I sleep better at night, and I have a much better overall sense of wellness. As an added bonus my skin, hair and nails all look much better. It is filling, tasty and nutritious.

Normally, I have one scoop mixed with soymilk in the morning, with a waffle, or some other small breakfast item. This keeps me full until lunch, and then I have another scoop, and another small meal. Just make sure to drink plenty of water with this, as it is full of fiber. I would happily recommend this to anyone, vegan or carnivore!

I tried a sample of the Vanilla Chai. I blended it with vanilla soy milk and it made a tasty and filling alternative to a meal! The price may seem high, but if you read the ingredient list you can understand what's in it. There are no hidden or processed chemicals and no soy---unless you blend it with soy milk! I believe it can be mixed with water or fruit or some other non-dairy milk. The plant proteins in it are easy on the digestive track as well. I think it's worth the price to have something truly natural and healthful.

I've been a smoothie junkie for years, long before I went vegan. I've tried dozens of smoothie/protein powders, mostly soy or whey based. Vega is by far the best I've ever had - both in terms of flavor, and in terms of nutrition. I just finished a canister of Vanilla Chai and replaced it with this Chocolate flavor. Delish! Not to knock Vanilla Chai - it's wonderful - I just like to mix things up :) The chocolate flavor is rich without tasting too sweet. It's got body to it, though - some less-sweet chocolate flavored smoothies taste like watery chocolate. That's not the case here. I love that it's a completely whole food, plant based product. I love that it is formulated as both a meal replacement and a nutritional supplement. I started running a year ago, and about 6 months ago switched from a soy-based protein powder to Vega. I drink a Vega smoothie as my post-run recovery meal. I've noticed significant improvement in my overall recovery. My usual mix is 8 oz of non-dairy milk (I'm on an almond milk kick right now), 1 scoop of Vega, half a frozen banana, and a handful of [insert frozen fruit here - strawberries, pineapple, mixed berries, blueberries, cherries, etc]. Whir it up in the blender, and yum!

If you're looking at other Vega products, I've also used the Smoothie Infusion. I prefer this product - the whole food health optimizer. The smoothie infusion has no flavor, and since I use unsweetened/unflavored liquids as my smoothie base, my mixes with the smoothie infusion product taste flat. I prefer the flavor (and nutritional profile) of the Whole Food Health Optimizer. I'm also a big fan of Brendan Brazier, creator of Vega, after reading his book, Thrive. Also highly recommended! His energy bar recipes have saved me a chunk of change vs. commercially packaged energy bars.

Okay, so unlike most people here, I did not think the flavor was "great" or "horrid". It was okay. Not too bad, a little sweeter than I expected, and it definitely tasted better than it looked. I have had a ton of different protein shakes and meal replacement shakes over the years (I haven't always been a vegan), and this is, in my opinion, definitely one of the better ones and I drink either this or one of the other flavors almost every day. HOWEVER...if you're not used to green smoothies you may not like it. You also may not like it if you're not used to the flavor of Maca, as that is a strong flavor in this. So, if you like to drink your greens and know what Maca smells and tastes like, you should give this a try. But please take everyone else's advice and buy the single-serving packet ($2.79 each at the grocery store I go to) before investing in a tub of this. Everyone's tastes are different, so caution is advised.

Oh, and one more thing...for all the people who say in their reviews to use whey protein instead: whey isn't vegan.
