This healthy breakfast recipe was made possible by a review sample from Sambazon and Mom’s Meet. All opinions are my own.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went out to brunch and had the most delicious creation we have ever tasted. It was a blueberry infused quinoa that was served with fruit, nuts, granola and a ton of other fresh and healthy ingredients. When I got the chance to try Sambazon Acai juices I thought I would try to recreate something similar for my own family. My kids get bored with cereal very quickly so I always have my eye out for a new healthy breakfast recipe that they might enjoy. This is a really simple way to get just about every food group into your meal and it would work as a healthy lunch as well as breakfast.

So, what did I think of the Sambazon juices that I tried? I have to say, I was a huge fan of Sambazon Acai beverages even before I got the chance to work with Mom’s Meet on a review. They are thicker than something like apple juice but not a smoothie. They are the perfect balance of sweet and tart and make a very refreshing drink. I not only love the favor of the juice but am very impressed with their commitment to the environment. My local Kroger only had the original and Blueberry and Pomegranate varieties, both of which I loved. I am going to keep my eye out for the other flavors. The Mocha Java Energy Blend sounds like it would make a heavenly on the go breakfast!
