If you want to drink Vega One™, Vega® Essentials, Vega® Protein & Greens, Vega Sport® Protein, Vega® Protein Smoothie, or Vega® Clean* Protein on-the-go, a shaker cup or Mason jar are your new best friends. Ready in 20 seconds flat, a protein shake is delicious on-the-go. But, if not properly layered, you’ll wind up with a very unpleasant dusting of powder—potentially all over your face. And you don’t want to sport a green or brown mustache every day.

Before you shake it fast, consider this stacking technique in either a shaker cup or tightly sealed Mason jar:
