I like pomegranates and chocolate so I decided to make this shake that combines them! All the health benefits of pomegranate juice combined with my (plant-based, protein, vegan, dairy free, soy free, gluten-free, nutritional) shake of choice Vega One, and deliciously healthy maca chocolate and you have a real winner. There are a couple of options here. I found the best taste came from using pomegranate juice over fresh pomegranate and it was much quicker. I like pomegranates so I went with Vega One Natural, but otherwise you could use Vega One Vanilla. If you want more chocolate it is delicious with Vega One Chocolate! This is good with plain 100% pomegranate juice as well as cherry or blueberry flavored pomegranate juice, the choice is yours!

As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I received Vega products to use in creating this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant based protein of choice since before I started blogging. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
