Natural Products Expo West – Sambazon

The fourth and final installment of the Natural Products Expo West Series.  Be sure to check out parts 1, 2, and 3!

The last brand that I met with at Expo West was Sambazon, who is probably best known for their acai juice blends, smoothie packs and sorbet.  The company is committed to providing natural, organic products free of GMOs.  Sambazon is also currently working to sustainably manage millions of acres in the Amazon forest and have constructed new schools, buildings and other centers in the villages where they work (in Brazil).  After learning more about the company and their commitment to sustainable harvesting practices in South America, I have to say I’m pretty impressed.  Plus, their products taste great!

First up was the Mocha Java Energy smoothie that has 80mg of organic caffeine and 9g of food protein per bottle.

Next was the Blended Breakfast, which is comprised of amaranth, quinoa, chia and fresh fruit to provide a complete breakfast for those on the go.

The protein smoothie is made with Chocolate, Almond and Coconut Milk and is the perfect recovery drink for after a hard workout or if you need a little extra protein boost.

Last but not least is the Supergreens smoothie that is made with a kale and ginger base.
