If you are like me you desperately want to eat a healthy balanced diet. However, the million errands I have to do in a day as a mom (ok I might be exaggerating a bit) often finds me in the middle of a fast-food drive-thru or eating some not so tasty bar. Recently, I got to try out the new Vejo portable blender, and I am going to be perfectly honest it blew me away. Not only is this machine the best portable blender (I have tried several) it is a complete game-changer for my diet.
How is Vejo Different From every other Portable Blender?
My biggest struggle with other portable blenders is they still aren’t that convenient. They might be smaller, than traditional blenders and might operate on battery power. But you still have to pile in all the ingredients into the blender before you leave home, or have somewhere to store all the ingredients.
Vejo blender is simply the easiest to use smoothie makers around.
I think the easiest way to describe Vejo is like a portable Keurig, but instead of pods filled with coffee, you have pods (or as Vejo calls them “blends”) filled with delicious healthy fruits, greens, and vitamins to make amazing smoothies. And don’t worry Vejo’s blends are 100% biodegradable so you won’t be harming the planet. Here is how Vejo works.
How Vejo Works
You aren’t going to find a simpler process. You have to do an initial charge of the blender when it first arrives, then you are ready to go.
Step 1. Fill Vejo Blender with Water (Cold or Hot), or your choice of Milk – Each Vejo blend tells you what is recommended to mix your drink with.
Step 2. Peel the Top of your blend and Place in Blender
Step 3. Lock in Top and the Blending Begins
30 seconds later you have an incredibly delicious smoothie. It honestly can’t be any easier and could not be tastier. It is perfect for so many occasions like when you are taking the kids to practice, don’t have time to make breakfast, a great snack at work. Also, I recently took it on a trip and it was a lifesaver. So many times eating out hurts my stomach and with Vejo, I had an incredible smoothie in a snap.
My tip is to have a couple of blends with you if you know you are going to be out and about for a while. That way you always have a delicious healthy snack nearby when needed.
Vejo has a wide variety of blends for all different types of blends that can fit into pretty much any diet regimen. All the ingredients are organic and freeze-dried within hours of being picked. I also love that all the blends have no sugar added.

Daily Vejo Blends
The Daily Vejo Blends are your classic greens and fruit smoothie blends. These are the ones I find myself most often enjoying as a part of my regular routine. These blends are all between 40 – 100 calories which is great because it’s so delicious without any of the guilt. My personal favorites are the tart berry, clean greens, and matcha latte.
Here are some of the other daily Vejo blends you should try:
- Strawberry Banana
- Pina Strawberry
- Mixed Berry
- Pina Greens
Protein Vejo Blends
If you need a little more protein in your diet, the protein Vejo blends are a great option. I find my teenage son often is making these blends happen. The blends run between 6g and 9g of protein and typically are about 100 calories. My personal favorites are banana almond and spiced chocolate.
Functional Vejo Blends
I am a huge fan of functional food to help with things like sleep and energy. Vejo has a wide variety of options including a new Watermelon Fresca with a collagen glow.
Performance (Workout) Blends
If you need a quick pickup before your workout or a recovery drink you can pop your Vejo in your gym bag and head out the door. They have a pre-workout option and recovery blends. The pre work out blend should be taken about 30-60 minutes before your exercise and is great to get your blood flowing. The post-workout blend helps repair the your cells after a tough workout and is only 30 calories, so you are not immediately consuming all the calories you just burned off.
Why I absolutely Love Vejo
Convenience & Taste
Honestly, I don’t have the time nor the patience to create delicious healthy smoothies. As a mom with 5 kids and a business to run, there is always someone who needs my attention or time. Having an easy on the go smoothie maker is not something I ever imagined, and it’s pretty incredible. I have tried the smoothie delivery boxes and the meal prepping, there is nothing that beats the convenience of Vejo, plus the taste is absolutely delicious.
I am a big proponent of eating organic and I love that Vejo’s blends are all organic. In addition, most smoothies when you visit a local smoothie shop, or even if you make it on your own are around 250 -400 calories. With Vejo, most smoothies range between 50 – 100 calories, and those calories are packed with nutrients.
I have tried a few other smoothie services, and typically they cost about $5.00 – $6.00 a smoothie. Plus, if you visit your local smoothie shop, especially one serving with organic ingredients, I find myself paying $6-$9 a smoothie. Vejo’s smoothies average around $3.00. Since they are freeze-dried, they last quite a while so you don’t have to worry about waste.
I can honestly say, that there are very few products that have blown me away but this is definitely one. Because when you have a busy Mom Schedule it is so hard to find health and convenience. Vejo checks off both boxes. or Check out all of Vejo’s Blender options and blends at Vejo.com!
