#FuelYourBetter with VegaSport

Last month, I got a package of a new Sugar-Free pre-workout energy drink mix from our friends at Vega Sport. As a diabetic, I’m always looking for ways to get my energy supplemented without a ton of extra sugar (yeah, I know – sugar=carbs=energy but there have to be better ways to get them in, right?!!)


I received the Sugar-free Energizer in Acai Berry Flavor. The directions state to mix with 8 oz of water, but since I’m always wary of tasting new things, I made mine with a bit more — probably 16-20 oz of water.


The flavor was pretty good – some reviewers suggested to mix with juice, but since I don’t tend to drink juice that isn’t a workable option for me.  It’s not overly sweetened, which is nice right before heading out, especially now since it’s getting hotter out. I will probably continue to make it with the extra water, just because I prefer more diluted sports beverages no matter what they are.

The one issue I had was that it didn’t seem to dissolve completely – I noticed the first time when I was at the bottom that there were “crumbs” left. The next time I made it I stirred it extra long and there was still some undissolved powder on the top.  I think if I mixed it up in my blender that might resolve that problem!


All in all, I’m happy that I have enough of my review package to get me through the early days of my marathon training! It’s also helpful for those hot weekends when I’m working out in the yard!

There are several options to help you #fuelyourbetter – before, during AND after a workout –  at the Vega Sport website! You can also follow Vega on Twitter and Instagram to learn more about all of their vegan fitness products!
