Does Vega Protein Nutrition Shake taste like vegetables?

While Vega Protein Nutrition Shake certainly doesn’t taste like a side dish, you may be able to taste a bit of “green”. That’s because every carton has ingredients made from leafy greens, green algae and vegetables. But we think it tastes quite delicious. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Can I give it to my kids?

We recommend speaking to your pediatrician first to determine if a particular product is right for your kids.

How many can I have every day? How many is too many?
