Are you craving something clean, refreshing, a little bubbly, and healthful to boot? No, it's not kombucha, I've got something else you need to try....Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks!
Like kombucha, these are loaded with stomach pleasing probiotics and not loaded with sugar like I do see in kombucha drinks. Plus, they even add apple cider vinegar which I'm a fan of already. Kevita has several coconut flavors sweetened with stevia and I stuck to only trying these. There are some flavors with higher sugar content, but I liked the coconut versions having only 10 to 20 calories for the whole bottle.

Since my meal pictures are still lacking, I am focusing more on this fun filled "treat" that's not spooky in the slightest. Sorry for deviating from the normal What I Ate Wednesday procedures, but sometimes you just have to change it up. Plus, these Kevita drinks are worth talking about. I do want to give a great, big thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting as usual; now go on over and pay her a visit!!
I had the Mango Coconut first thing in the morning on an empty stomach instead of my morning coffee. The result? I felt more energized by this caffeine-free beverage than my big mug o'coffee; and no stomach pains either! Win! I wanted to go and be outdoors all day with this in my body, but I had to go to work instead...boo. Fortunately, I was able to focus on my work better, so I'll take that for now.
I brought the Strawberry Acai Coconut one to work for a special beverage to enjoy with my lunch and again, I just felt good all over. Plus, I work standing up and eating lunch can be a chore, but at least the drink was no problem!
My favorite is the pure Coconut Kevita with it's clean, effervescent taste that just makes you feel....good. The other flavors look and sound like they'd be tasty treats too, and their sugar content is the same as or less than kombucha. If you are looking for a cleaner, crispier alternative to the more pungent probiotic drinks, look no further than Kevita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks.
Pick one up next time you're at the store, and let me know your thoughts. Have you already tried these? If so, what's your favorite flavor?
Oh, and here's a quick look at some of my eats....
