Oxygen Magazine Review
Meet the world’s first pod-based blender, the Vejo. When we first heard of this new gadget, our testers were a little wary of the “pod-based” aspect, eliciting visions of mounding landfills, but our minds were put at ease when we learned the Vejo pods are actually made of corn, making them 100 percent biodegradable, BPA-free, and soon to be water soluble. Our interest was piqued.
So, how does Vejo work? This lightweight, handheld blender is all about convenience and nutrition. Whether your focus is getting an instant juice, smoothie, protein boost, or hit of caffeine on the go, simply pack your water-filled blender and pod of choice and when you’re ready to drink, remove the lid, drop in your pod, twist on the cap for a quick blend, and sip with ease.
We tested the Vejo from home, where most of us are these days, but we still reaped the benefits of not having to buy (or waste) produce, not to mention the cleaning, chopping, and tedious clean-up of regular juicing or smoothie prep. But if you’re more of a post-yoga class juice and smoothie consumer, pre-made convenience is often pricey and packaged in wasteful single-use materials. Whether your reasons are convenience- or eco-driven, there’s no denying this nifty little gadget solves a few of our modern-day problems.
The Vejo Starter Kit comes with your handheld blender, a USB-C charger and an 8-pack of pods with flavor combinations ranging from Clean Greens, Banana Almond, Pina Greens, and Tart Berry. Just take a spin through the Vejo app (we’ll get to that in a minute) or their website to shop the broad selection of pod options ranging from protein shakes, coffee, matcha, sleep-inducing tea, immunity boosters, collagen, pre-workout, post-workout, and even stress support. There’s an instant bevvy for all your daily needs, and our testers agree, they are delicious. Each pod’s contents is a mash-up of freeze-dried whole foods, superfood boosts, vitamins, minerals, and in some cases, adaptogens (herbs that adapt to physical, emotional and environmental stress, then work to normalize and balance the body), with health benefits listed by ingredient online and in the app.
There’s much to be said about this tool’s bright pop of color, clean, pleasing design and matte velvety finish, plus it’s intuitive to use. Simply plug in its USB-C charger base and place the bottle cap over it to charge. A full battery will get you 30 blends, a month’s worth of daily juices with a single charge. It’s quiet too, similar to your smartphone on vibrate mode. And cleanup is easy with the bottle cleaner included in the starter kit (as you may have already guessed, this tool is not dishwasher safe). Sync your Vejo up to the Vejo app to track consumption, monitor battery life, auto-order pods, add drink-time reminders and more.

“Like WHOA! I had no idea what to expect from the Vejo product. I hadn’t heard about it, and at first glance, I thought it was just another blender bottle. Well, it is so much more. The packaging was beautiful, and I got my favorite color for a blender — blue! I quickly followed the instructions to put it together and do my first blend.
It was interesting to see that someone had figured out how to freeze-dry ‘good stuff’ and place it in a portable pod to be blended by a small handheld blender. The technology is great, and the fact that it blends on its own is phenomenal.
My first blend was the sleep tart cherry, and it did work magically because recently, I have not been getting good rest. The following morning, I followed it up with clean greens and in the afternoon with whey coffee. Well, I haven’t found a blend I don’t like as of yet, even though I haven’t tried all the different blends. I am so pleased with everything I have tried and know it can only get better. I totally recommend this product, and I can’t think of any more ways to say how great and convenient it is. If you are looking for a healthy snack during your day, this is it. I find myself thinking of reaching for a blend instead of something else in the day. This is a great way to stay on a healthy track!”
“I am in love with my Vejo. Usually, I create my own smoothie, but that takes so much prep work. I love that, with Vejo, I can grab-and-go and get all that I need with no mess and little clean up. It’s so tasty and easily fits in my bag. I can make my blend in between clients at work. It is a godsend.”
