But I’m not making a Bob Marley reference…though you can’t deny that song IS pretty awesome! 🙂
No, I’m talking about these little beauties…
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the people of Sambazon to sample and review a few of their smoothies. After taking a look at the flavors and seeing the amazing ingredients (all organic, non-GMO, fair trade, and even VEGAN!), I couldn’t handle my excitement!
The company sent me some VIP vouchers to try not one, but THREE smoothies! The hardest part was deciding which ones to get…I really wanted to try the kale ginger
(uh, YUM!), but sadly they weren’t in stock. 🙁
In the end, I went with the breakfast blend in strawberry banana, and two of their protein smoothies, vanilla and chocolate almond coconut!!
I’ll admit I was a little nervous trying these since most juices/blended drinks tend to be too sweet for my tastes. They definitely were on the sweeter side, but not so much that I couldn’t enjoy them.
The strawberry banana was the first one I tried and loved it from the first sip…the PERFECT blend of strawberry and banana!
And at around 210 calories for the whole bottle, I was surprised that it kept me full for TWO hours (pre-made shakes usually only hold me over for an hour tops!).
Next up was the chocolate almond coconut and oh my gosh you guys, the coconut flavor in this is UNREAL!
It was like drinking the creamiest of chocolate milks out of an actual COCONUT!
Last, and actually what I thought was the least, was the acai berry vanilla. It had a nice mild vanilla flavor that went well with the berry but I thought it was a little gritty-tasting.
That is until I had a minor stroke…of GENIUS! 😉
Are you ready for this?
I kid…you not! 😀
Along with my VIP vouchers, the company also sent me this GORGEOUS handcrafted bowl…
And a cute little spoon too…which makes a fabulous impromptu mic while dancing around the kitchen 😉
But the bowl has an even BETTER use…
Hmmm, what could that be?
So now for the SUPER exciting news…
Sambazon is giving you ALL the chance to win FIVE VIP VOUCHERS so you can see for yourself just how Samb-AZING they are…and they’re also throwing in a handcrafted ginger chew bowl AND a wooden mic! 😉
Giveaway is open to US residents only and will close Thursday, February 28 at midnight EST.

WOW! I think the strawberry or choc for me.. 🙂
These look good! And I think I’ve actually seen this brand in one of the distributor’s product books at work so I’m going to look into ordering these (I’m in charge of ordering products for the retail component of the bakery cafe where I work). Thanks for the idea! 😀
Oh wow, that’s awesome! We have very similar tastes, so I KNOW you will love them!
I’ve seen those, but have never tried them, they look super tasty though. and anything chocolate is usually a win in my book!
i love that bowl too!!
Just went out and bought the java mocha and acai ones! They look so good, I figured I’d give them a try 🙂
Ohhhh! What do you think of the java? I would have picked that one up, but I didn’t see it at the store! 🙁
Chocolate almond coconut here!
Yum. They all sound so good!!
I am a total chocoholic, so the chocolate almond coconut sounds heavenly like a Mounds bar. Mocha Java sounds incredible too, so hopefully I won’t have to decide……Of course the Blended Breakfast sounds exactly like my new healthy, fruit smoothies with oats and chia. MMMMMmmmmm………….
Acai berry protein with Barbara’s puffs my heart just sank– I need this in my life :-). I have seen these but am always nervous to test a smoothie I know I can make at home but these beauties look remarkable and I would love to win your giveaway so I can taste test one out :-). Love and shine Courtstar
I love making acai bowls out of the frozen acai puree from sambazon. These smoothies look incredible. The ginger kale and choc. almond coconut look so good.
I know, I’ve GOT to find that ginger kale…you know me, ginger ADDICT! And I should really try making my own acai bowls! I had one once when I was on vacation in California and absolutely LOVED it!
Yum! Blended breakfast for sure! Anything with strawberry and banana gets my vote
