My Thoughts:

Kevita drinks are a unique division of health drinks, as they focus on boosting digestive health via a low-calorie mixture that is packed with organic ingredients and probiotics. Digestion is an important aspect of your health because without digestive efficacy, our bodies cannot absorb all of the nutrients that we take in. Ingesting probiotics helps to keep your stomach’s healthy bacteria in balance–which in turn helps keep the lining healthy and ready to do it’s job (absorb).

Similar to kombucha (but not quite as effervescent as kombucha), Kevita offers an expansive range of flavors, each of which is interesting, refreshing and tasty in its own right.

These drinks are suitable for individuals who abide by a plethora of diets, as they are vegan, dairy free, lactose free, gluten free and free of added sugar. Those facts make it easy for me to recommend to a wide range of individuals with specific dietary needs.

Quality wise, you can see on their labeling that Kevita drinks are certified organic and non-gmo–two important specs that I look for in all products that I buy frequently. On top of quality, these drinks are easy to find if you have a health food store like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods close to you. You can locate them in close proximity to kombucha and coconut water in most stores that carry it.

Taste wise, these drinks are tasty and light–not as heavy as fruit juice. The “sparkling” characteristic of the drink makes it refreshing and satisfying, though it only contains about 10 calories per serving. I’d urge soda drinkers to give this drink a try. These drinks provide nutrients via organic ingredients, whereas sodas can’t claim anything close to that. My favorites of the bunch are the Mango Coconut and the Tangerine. They are the perfect drinks to pair with your summer activities.

Though the low-calorie feature is nice, I don’t focus on it–especially if the ingredients are organic and nutritionally robust. That said, my suggested improvement with these drinks is for them to contain a few more ingredients that make them closer to a meal in regards to how filling they are. I also wish the flavors were a little bit stronger and more intense (they likely are not because of the low calorie content).
