So when I got the opportunity to review the superfood juices and smoothies from Sambazon, I was pretty enthusiastic. I had seen these before at the grocery store, but had yet to try them for some odd reason. Sambazon juices and smoothies come in 10 different flavor varieties, and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and omega 3-6-9's. They also fit wonderfully into any diet since they're vegan, gluten-free, and are USDA certified Organic. Oh. That means no GMO's, too! Talk about whole food nutrition!
- Energy: This potent blend of Açaí berries, Yerba Mate, and Guarana delivers a whole food experience that boosts the body and mind the way nature intended. Energy is available in two flavors: A rich berry superfood juice blend with 50mg of organic caffeine per bottle, and a new Mocha Java superfood smoothie with 80mg of organic caffeine from fair trade coffee beans, plus a hint of chocolate.
- Protein: These indulgent smoothies are packed with 10g of organic vegan whole food protein per bottle (which helps to build lean muscle) and healthy omegas to keep you full longer. It comes in three yummy flavors: Açaí berry + Vanilla; Açaí berry + Chocolate; Chocolate + Almond + Coconut milk.
- Supergreens with Kale + Ginger: This is a potent blend of Açaí berries, a powerful new blend of six varieties, plus a hint of ginger. It delivers around two servings of whole fruits and veggies, without added sugar.
- Blended Breakfast: This is the first beverage to combine whole fruit with ancient grains (like quinoa and amaranth), chia, and Organic/Non-GMO verified soymilk for a smoothie that sustains and nourishes. This delicious strawberry-banana blend is also a good source of fiber (7g per bottle).
- Açaí/Antioxidant: This Original Amazon superfood juice is bursting with powerful antioxidants and healthy omegas. It’s a delicious way to combat free radicals and comes in two flavors: Original or Açaí+Blueberry+Pomegranate.
Well, I finally decided to try some of these fantastic products. I chose the Energy Mocha Java, the Energy Acai Berry+Yerba Mate+Guarana, and the Acai With Blueberry + Pomegranate.
I drank the Mocha Java in the morning because...well...it is a coffee-type drink! I loved the flavor, and it definitely gave me a much needed energy boost. There was no odd texture or funny aftertaste, and the mocha flavor wasn't overwhelming. It was just a hint of rich chocolate flavor. This was great, because I am not really a fan of sweets.
Next, I tried the Energy Acai Berry+Yerba Mate+Guarana. This was very tasty, and again, not too sweet. I loved the freshness of this drink, and you could just tell it wasn't over-processed like a lot of juice products. There wasn't anything artificial or funky tasting. My husband even liked this flavor, and he tends to shy away from anything labeled "Organic". (I am trying to convert him, but he is convinced I am just some new age hippie!)
I will definitely be adding Sambazon products to my shopping list from now on. They are delicious, nutritious, and provide a nice energy boost which as a busy mom, I am in dire need of. Add to that the benefits of superfoods, and you've got a winning product!
