September Flavor of the Month:  Vanilla

September flavor of month - vanilla

It is our mission and goal at The BeneFIT Box to not only provide you with great products but to also give you a lot of options when it comes to flavors. The one thing that is a given about the supplement industry is that every year, new and exciting flavors continue to come out. 

The choices were very slim when supplements first came onto the scene and nowadays, you can have a different flavor every single month. We will highlight a different flavor each month that will be our “Flavor of the Month”.  We will provide recipes and ideas for snacks throughout the month to use for that particular flavor. Check out what we have for the Month of September.

We know what you’re thinking, all these new and exciting flavors, and you choose Vanilla as your flavor of the month?!?

Vanilla is one of the most popular flavors selected by our members when building their boxes. We want to start off with providing some go-to recipes for easy flavors and will start to introduce the more unique flavors in special months throughout the year.

Here are a few great recipes we found out there to keep handy for vanilla protein powders.
