Venus Williams Just Launched Her Own Protein Shake Line
The seven-time Grand Slam Champion and four-time Olympic Gold Medalist just debuted her very own vegan protein shake line—we got an exclusive interview.Happy Viking is 100% vegan and packed with 20 grams of protein, and was inspired by Williams' plant-based diet, which she's been following for nearly 10 years ever since she was diagnosed with Sjögren's Syndrome—an autoimmune disorder that causes the body's immune system to attack its healthy cells. In 2011, the syndrome caused her to drop out of the U.S. Open, after which, Williams got to work at home on refining a protein shake that was rich in anti-inflammatory, plant-based protein sources.
