Our Banana Almond blend is proof that nutritious and delicious don’t have to be mutually exclusive. While the ingredients in this blend are incredibly simple, they’re a powerful way to get nutrients for your health and fitness routines.
In this edition of What’s Inside, we’re going to take an in-depth look at Banana Almond—ranging from its protein content to how you can incorporate it into everyday life.
What's Inside: Vejo's Banana Almond Blend
Our Banana Almond blend is simple, with just four nutrient-rich main ingredients that make for one delicious combination. Let’s take a quick look at each of them.
- Organic Almond Protein
Our Banana Almond blend has 7 grams of plant-based protein in every pod, and that’s thanks to our 100% organic almond protein. Beyond protein, almonds contain fiber, which can improve digestive health and curb your appetite for longer as well. It’s also a great source of calcium.
- Organic Banana
Don’t take bananas for granted. These popular fruits are key to supporting strong bones, with potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin K. They’re also a good source of fiber and carbohydrate, to help restore muscles and give you a boost of natural energy.
- Organic Lucuma
Lucuma is a sweet, subtropical fruit with a taste that’s similar to maple. This low glycemic fruit is high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and some preliminary studies show that it may aid in supporting healthy blood pressure and normalizing blood sugar levels.
- Organic Cinnamon
Sometimes good things come in small packages, and cinnamon is proof. This world-renowned spice, which comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree, provides powerful antioxidants, can help regulate blood sugar, and promote heart health. Plus, it’s delicious, which is always a plus.
The Big Picture
With its high protein content and 2:1 carb-to-protein ratio, Banana Almond is ideal for post-workouts or simply to recover from daily activities. It provides a much more interesting taste than basic chocolate or vanilla protein supplements, with a flavor that’s similar to banana bread that will indulge your banana bread cravings.
Banana Almond’s fiber content means it’s a great snack to tide you over between meals or to accompany a healthy breakfast. There’s really no bad time to enjoy Banana Almond, with plenty of good carbs, protein, and healthy fats wrapped in one delicious package.
How Vejo Blends Are Formulated: It takes quite a bit of work, research, and testing to get to our final product at Vejo. When you put a pod in our blender, you’re getting months (even years) of hard work from doctors, nutritionists, and researchers to ensure you’re getting the best ingredients possible. All of our ingredients undergo rigorous third-party testing for purity and ingredient identification. Our Quality Assurance Program also tests for heavy metals and microbes to ensure all products meet strict requirements; products that do not meet these requirements are rejected. In fact, we have a lengthy list of “never ingredients” we’re proud to say will never make it into our blends. Check it out here.
