Sambazon products are made from blends of Brazilian fruits and botanicals, and are all USDA certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Ecocert Fair Trade, vegan and gluten-free. The company’s founders aim to help protect the Amazon rainforest and assist family farmers by supporting sustainable harvesting of ingredients via their Fair Trade partnership, while also bringing tasty, nutritious products to market. I received samples of some of the Sambazon blended smoothies and juice drinks to try for this review and here’s what I thought…
The range of bottled drinks and smoothies that Sambazon produces is impressive and creative—check out all the product flavors on their website. Sambazon products include ingredients like yerba mate, fair trade coffee, coconut milk, chia, kale, ginger and various fruit juices. Açaí berries feature prominently in nearly all Sambazon products (in various combos with things like vanilla, chocolate and other juices). Is there something magical about these berries? I wouldn’t say that, but they are nutritious and they do have a very high antioxidant capacity (more than many other berries). Trendy ingredients and “superfood” labeling aside, I LOVED the taste of the Mocha Java “Energy” smoothie (pictured left)–it was rich and smooth and had a really nice, quality flavor. My daughter liked the taste of the Blended Breakfast Superfood Smoothie, but was expecting a thicker drink. Sambazon seems to have nailed the flavor combinations, that’s for sure.
Do be aware that the 10.5-oz bottles deliver slightly over 1 serving, so keep that in mind when checking calorie info, etc. (Some Sambazon products come in larger, multi-serving bottles for multiple days/multiple people.) I was fine with the Mocha Java providing 180 calories—it was definitely worth it to me—I’d drink it for dessert! Sambazon products are available nationally at a variety of retailers.
