Meet Our Sponsor: KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks

As you all know, I am quite selective with the brands that I will take on as sponsors of Tasty Yummies – most especially when it comes to food and drinks. As someone that generally makes everything I can myself, most of the companies that approach me with products to try and consequently share with my readers, are approaching me with products that I would just never buy myself. If you ran into me at the grocery store, it is more likely that you will find tons of fruits and veggies, your standard pantry items, maybe a couple fun healthy drinks, like kombucha or the like and if I am feeling extra nice, maybe a few random (somewhat) junk food items that I will agree to buy for my hubby.

For me to work with a (food) brand, I have to really love their products and what they are doing and it really has to be something that I can feel good about sharing with you guys. I can honestly say that for every one company that I agree to work with, there are probably 10 to 15 that I turned down.

When KeVita approached me a while back to try their drinks I was so excited – a company with a product that I had already been eyeing up at the store. I have had bottles of KeVita in my hands at the store so many times, but for fear that I might not like it, I always went with my old faithful, some type of kombucha – which I love not just for the probiotics and health benefits, but also for the fizziness!

It has been years since I have drank traditional high fructose corn syrup-laden soda, I can’t tell you the last time I had one, but I absolutely LOVE fizzy drinks. There is something that I just adore about that refreshing bubbly goodness. Whether it be just sparkling mineral water, a health soda pop, kombucha, a good sparkling wine or now, KeVita’s Sparkling Probiotic Drinks!

What is KeVita?

Since I started talking with KeVita, I have had the pleasure of sampling every single flavor of KeVita and I am now obsessed. But, KeVita’s Sparkling Probiotic Drinks really are so much more than a fizzy drink – their proprietary culture starts with four strains of live probiotics. Their probiotic culture is water, rather than milk-based, and is derived from kefir cultures using a process that they have been evolving for years. Kevita’s drinks are certified organic, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free and vegan.

What are Probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that reside in the gut. Intestinal health depends, to a large extent, on having an ample supply of these beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Research indicates that probiotics may support immune and digestive health.

In today’s world our daily stress levels can be so high! Stress undermines our healthy digestive flora. A combination of a poor diet, medications, stress, environmental toxins and chemicals wreak havoc on our digestive tracts. Many believe that our bodies thrive with a constant influx of probiotics to replenish the gut and counteract these negative effects.

You can read even more about probiotics here on the KeVita site.

So, How is KeVita Different from Kombucha?

I know you guys are wondering this – I was too when I first heard of KeVita. To be honest. I am a big fan of kombucha personally, so I was curious how the flavor compared. KeVita has much more of a toned down taste in that there isn’t that tart, vinegary flavor (that I personally love) that kombucha has, but many people are turned off by. I know many people that do not like kombucha because they find the flavor to be overpowering, but they absolutely love KeVita.

Traditionally, kombucha is fermented with black tea while KeVita is fermented with coconut water, tea or reverse osmosis water. KeVita is light in flavor, refreshing and delicious and I find that the fruit flavors included are much more pronounced and distinguishable than with kombucha. To me the two really are quite different.

12 Unique Flavors

KeVita now has 12 different flavors including three brand new flavors, Tangerine, Blueberry Cherry and Hibiscus Berry Daily Cleanse. My personal favorites are the three new flavors, which are just so incredible, but I also really love the Lemon Ginger, Living Greens and the Lemon Cayenne Daily Cleanse. As someone that sometimes finds stevia to be a tad overpowering – I find these are the flavors that I enjoy the most. That said, there hasn’t been a single KeVita flavor that I didn’t like. All but two of the KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks are sweetened naturally with stevia, Lemon Ginger and the Living Greens flavors are instead sweetened with a small amount cane juice. All of the flavors are caffeine-free with the exception of the Tangerine flavor which includes organic green coffee bean extract and the Living Greens flavor that includes a blend of green teas. All 12 Kevita’s drinks are certified organic, non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free and vegan.

These look great! I love kombucha and water kefir, so I have no doubt I’d enjoy KeVita too.

Love the sound of these! Let’s do away with all soda and replace them with drinks like Kevita!

I’ve had the EXACT same experience as you had with Kevita, contemplating it at the store and ultimately putting it down for kombucha! I’d love to try it without feeling that I’m taking a “risk” ;)

I so badly want to like Kombucha, but that tart flavor isn’t my favorite. Sounds like Kevita would be the best option!

I have not tried it, but I am all for fermented foods/drinks and probiotics. I would like to try it to see how it compares to kombucha and water kefir. Thanks for the giveaway!

I have heard nothing but good things about probiotics, but have not yet tried them. I’m almost 69, but I think it’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks. And if I’ll be healthier for it, so much the better. Thanks for offering me the opportunity to try.

I love kombucha and have seen this in the case next to it but h ave yet to purchase. Would love to try some before splurging as it usually doesn’t go on sale like my kobucha.

I’ve been curious about this drink for a while, so I’m really glad you shared how it is different from kombucha! I don’t drink soda anymore but occasionally I’m looking for a healthy alternative.

I feel the same way about buying certain health drinks at the store. I will usually look up the drink before I purchase & I have read so many amazing reviews about this drink. I actually just bought my first one today at whole foods. I was hoping to buy the berry hibiscus cleanse but, I do not think it’s in stores yet. I bought the coconut one it’s so fun, bubbly, & good!!

12 Jennifer May 12, 2014 at 11:48 am

Like you Beth, I love the sparking nature of these drinks.. they feel like a treat but knowing they are good for you, too, makes them that much more enjoyable. The pomegranate coconut is my favorite. Not too sweet but satisfying. I am always scared to try new flavors because I love that one so much. Winning the coupons would give me the chance to branch out! So glad you chose to endorse them. I love them!

I drink kombucha on a regular basis, but I have never tried Kevita. Sounds delish!

I just tried KeVita recently (last weekend actually) and I think you’re right about it being milder than kombucha — perfect for those that cringe at the vinegary flavor kombucha sometimes has.

So far I’ve tried the lemon ginger and lemon cayenne. I’m excited to try the new flavors you mentioned. I’ll have to be on the lookout for them!

I love KeVita! I agree it is a different and lighter flavor I think than kombucha, and not overly sweet which is great.

I was just talking about kombucha with a friend this morning. Funny I would get this now. She was telling me I should try it. I didn’t know about the vinegar taste. I’m not sure I’d love that. The Kevita sounds better. I have digestive and immune system issues, so I take probiotics every day. This would be another way to get them in my system. Lime Mint Coconut sounds tasty. I’d love to try these.

I absolutely love soda! I don’t love all the chemicals, HFCS or aspartame. KeVita sounds like just the ticket with lots of healthy probiotics and fermented goodness! Thanks for the opportunity to win some, Beth!

I love these! I found them at Whole Foods and saw that they were made or bottled in Ventura, can’t remember which, and that’s where I’m from! I didn’t know they were bigger than just that area so this is cool. The strawberry is my favorite. I’ve never been a big soda fan but I love that these are just slightly sweet and fizzy and have the probiotic benefit. Thanks for the giveaway!

I like kevita, I like the fresh taste of it. I tend to stick the same flavors…I didn’t realize there were so many different kinds out and also the new flavors that I would love to try!

38 Karen May 12, 2014 at 11:51 pm

I’ve been eyeing these but haven’t gone for it because of the stevia. I can’t handle much of it, but in small enough amounts I don’t react. It would be great to be able to try them. I love my kombucha but it’s always nice to have another beverage.

I currently take probiotics daily in the powder form and I’m finding it’s hard to add it to recipe without overpowering the flavor. I never considered a drink. Would love to try KeVita as another option.

I love that KeVita doesn’t put a lot of crappy sugar in their drinks! I hate when I find a probiotic that has 11g+ of sugar per serving.

I hope they are available in Canada! I love the way Kombucha makes my tummy feel, but sometimes the strong flavour is a little too much.
