Vega Shake & Go Smoothie
For busy tweens and teens (and their parents), a tasty, shake-with-water smoothie mix is the best way to feed your family a quick breakfast or snack. The Vega Shake & Go Smoothie is rich in plant-based complete protein, greens, omega-3s, fiber and probiotics, and delivers two servings of vegetables per serving. At only 120 calories per serving, this mix is also a diet-friendly choice compared with bottled smoothies, most packaged snacks, and junk food. As your kids are heading to the door, make them a smoothie and feel good that you're sending them out with a wholesome mini-meal in a drink. Vega Shake & Go comes in four flavors: Bodacious Berry, Vanilla Almondilla, Choc-a-lot and Tropical Tango.
Price: $24 for 12-ounce pouch
