Also Kevita is USDA certified organic, low calorie, NON-GMO (woohoo), gluten free, and vegan!

KeVita has an impressive list of flavors, the only sad part is most of the stores I go to, only have 1-2 flavors. 

  • Coconut
  • Lemon Ginger
  • Strawberry Acai Coconut
  • Mango Coconut
  • Pomegranate Coconut
  • Pomegranate
  • Pomegranate Black Tea
  • Living Greens
  • NEW: Mojita: Lime Mint Coconut
  • NEW: Daily Cleanse: Lemon Cayenne

Let’s start with the Lemon Ginger:

Hands down, my favorite combination. It’s light and fizzy and perfect for re-hydrating.  It’s not just the great taste that draws me to this product, the ingredient list is quite impressive. I think KeVita is perfect for someone who hasn’t really gotten into drinking Kombucha or finds that Kombucha is too overwhelming. 

The ingredient list boasts: Reverse Osmosis Water, Organic KeVita Probiotic Culture, Organic Cane syrup, organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic cold pressed lemon juice and ginger whole plant extracts, organic fig concentrate, purple carrot juice color.

Pretty impressive to me! Its a super pick me up. 

I also tried the Mango Coconut:

This flavor definitely has more punch, fruity and tropical. My BF Oliver said this was his favorite but I guess I’m more of the traditional flavor girl, can’t beat lemon and ginger! I could see serving this flavor as a punch at a party! OOOO! Just had a thought… a KeVita party. LOL. Yeah I’m a dork like that. 

Here is the awesome ingredient list: Reverse osmosis water, organic KeVita probiotic culture, organic coconut water, organic mango puree, organic apple cider vinegar, organic natural mango flavor, organic natural coconut flavor, organic stevia, organic fruit and vegetable color

Now for the giveaway! Enter below for your chance to score a coupon for a free drink (although tiny print says you are responsible for sales tax which is roughly 25-32cents) PRETTY FREAKING good in my book!

 

OK! Leave me a comment with the flavor you would like to try. Also like me on FB or follow me on Twitter and let me know in separate comments that you are/did. I will randomly pick a winner on 9/17/13 and announce the winner. Good luck. 

 

Have a super awesome day. 

Super Peach Tea drink (Inspired by Bulletproof Coffee)

WOW. Time flies. I’m at the end of my vacation and it has been busy. Jake went back to school this past Wednesday (3rd grade) and my dad had a double lung biopsy so my plate (head) has been full. I only managed, thus far, to squeeze in that ONE yoga workout. But the news from Dad’s biopsy is good (after a gigantic scare) so I’m slowly working on taking care of myself. I have 2 days left until I go back to practicum and Jake has a soccer game in a few hours (Go Team Shockwave). I’m uber excited, kid’s soccer games are so freaking fun.

I wanted to come back from my blogging hiatus with a delicious drink recipe inspired by Bulletproof coffee.

Without further ado:

 

 

 

 

 

So a little info on the cow’s milk from their website: (Note: I have been an avid coconut/almond milk drinker but I saw this brand at Fred Meyers and really wanted to try it. The taste is amazing but I am watching my body to see how it responds, generally when I consume cow milk I break out)

  • Organic Valley Grassmilk is artisanal quality 100% grass-fed milk produced by cows that eat only fresh grasses and dried forages, like hay. They are never fed supplemental grains or soybeans.

  • Minimally pasteurized and not homogenized, Grassmilk still has the cream on top the way nature intended. Just shake it up before you pour.

  • Long days in the pasture mean our 100% grass-fed cows’ milk naturally delivers a bigger dose of Omega-3 and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than conventional milk.

  • Like single-vineyard wines or artisanal chocolate, the taste of Grassmilk is a result of where the cows live and what they eat: The Northern California coastal plain. Giant redwoods stand sentinel between the Pacific Ocean and the lush pastures where Grassmilk cows dine.

  • You wouldn’t put them on your table, so we never use antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMO anything.

  • Always from family farms committed to the highest organic standards, from generations of farming wisdom. We are your neighbors, a national cooperative of real farmers growing real food the right way.

I have to tell you, the taste is amazing and I was never a cow milk drinker.. EVER!

I drank this tea for breakfast and I am 100% satisfied, this will definitely be a staple recipe that has so many promising tweaks. For instance, you could add maca powder. I’m positively giddy over the billion concoctions I am going to try. Stay tuned for some more recipes!!!

 

I leave you with some family pics:
