Naturade samples review- Vegan Smart Vanilla and Chocolate Shakes and Colostrum Plus Chewables

Last month Naturade sent me some samples for me to try for blog review.

They sent me some chocolate and vanilla Vegan Smart Nutritional shake samples which can be found here online:

I've had the chocolate flavor many times now. I like it mixed with banana, water and frozen strawberries. It mixes very smooth and has a nice taste. No weird after taste!! I also LOVE that its lactose free so I don't have any issues during and after drinking my shake. 

I also tried the vanilla one. I have tried many vanilla flavor protein drinks and I've found them all disgusting, but this one I can tolerate and actually drank the entire cup! :-) I prefer the chocolate over the vanilla, but I would still drink the vanilla in the Vegan Smart brand only!

Next, I've been taking the Symbiotics Colostrum Chewables in the orange creme flavor. 
I like them and have been taking them, but it's hard for me to remember to take them before I eat on an empty stomach. My toddler didn't like them at all. I think because they were a little chalky and not gummy texture like his vitamins... I like the orange flavor and can't wait to see how it will help me when taking it regularly.
