Our second probiotic packed blend from The Blender Girl is not your average glass of punch!

Now, we understand that not everyone is cut out to be a culinary artist or professional food blogger. But if you want to impress your guests, with a vibrant blend filled with unique ingredients, this is the smoothie for you!

Pomegranate Pro Punch

With only four ingredients this low maintenance creation combines a few adventurous fixings to create a blend that tastes, in our opinion, utterly sublime.

Ingredients:

Serves 2

1 bottle Pomegranate KeVita

¼ cup diced red bell pepper

2 cups frozen strawberries, plus more to taste

10 drops of alcohol-free liquid stevia, plus more to taste

Don’t let the red peppers intimidate you. When you mix these Vitamin C rich beauties with strawberries & pomegranate they provide a subtle hint of pepper to the blend that tastes oh so nice.

Pour the KeVita into your blender and allow it to settle slightly. Throw the bell pepper and blast until well combined.

Add the strawberries and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds. Add the stevia and more strawberries (depends in the quality and ripeness of the fruit) to taste. We recommend adding a handful of ice cubes to your drink if you prefer a thicker texture.

Pour the KeVita into your blender and allow it to settle while you assemble the other ingredients. Throw the remaining ingredients (except the ice and the cayenne) in and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until smooth and creamy.

Add the ice, and blend again for 10 to 20 seconds until combined. Add extra cayenne to taste and tweak ginger.

10 Reasons Why Everyone Needs Probiotics http://kevita.com/10-reasons-everyone-needs-probiotics/ http://kevita.com/10-reasons-everyone-needs-probiotics/#comments Sat, 22 Feb 2014 00:03:52 +0000 http://kevita.com/?p=120998 Continue reading ]]>

Probiotics … How do we love thee? Let us count the ways!

At KeVita, we’re obsessed with healthy, organic living, and we’re super sweet on probiotics. People have been eating fermented foods packed with probiotics for centuries and reaping health benefits like improved digestion, lower cholesterol and alleviated allergies.

Now it’s easier than ever to get your probiotics! You don’t have to make your own sauerkraut or be a fermentation master to partner up with probiotics as a part of a healthy lifestyle. KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks are a delicious way to revitalize your day and boost your bod with probiotics. With a wide range of organic, low-calorie drinks, KeVita has a flavor for every lifestyle.

Here are 10 reasons why you should get probiotics into your tummy on a daily basis:

1. They power up your digestive system.

Probiotics add friendly bacteria to your digestive system, improving absorption of nutrients and vitamins. Improved absorption means good digestion, which allows your body to get the most nutritional value from the foods you eat and helps to regulate your digestive system. Bonus: more energy! All this good stuff in your digestive tract boosts your overall immunity, because 80% of your immunity lives in your stomach.

2. They protect you during cold and flu season.

Along with traditional remedies like vitamin C, garlic, and ginger, probiotics are our favorite defense against colds and flus. Probiotics can soften your reaction to the common cold by reducing your body’s inflammatory response. This means fewer cold symptoms, yay! Hit with the flu? When fighting it off, your body kills bacteria, even the healthy ones. For a full flu recovery, replenish your body with friendly micro-flora found in probiotics.

3. They ward off evil. (At least in the form of yeast and urinary tract infections.)

Ladies—probiotics are your new BFF. Friendly bacteria, like the Lactobacillus genus, produce natural disinfectants (you know where) that help maintain a healthy pH balance. If you get a yeast infection or UTI, probiotics make a nice complement to traditional treatments because they maintain healthy bacteria down in the love canal. Love that!

4. They’re better than a breath mint.

Did you know your mouth and breath are part of your digestive tract? Probiotics keep your digestive system clean from the inside out. A study by the International Journal of General Medicine found that the probiotic BLIS K12 is effective in preventing reoccurring throat infections that cause oral issues, including bad breath. Kiss away with fresher breath and improved oral health!

5. They’re good for your cholesterol levels.

Gut health and heart disease may seem unrelated, but the beneficial bacteria living in your intestines may be good for more than your stomach. Researchers at the American Heart Association recently discovered that taking daily doses of probiotics lowered bad cholesterol by 12%, as well as reduced saturated cholesterol esters that contribute to the hardening of arteries (a leading cause of heart attacks).

6. They optimize your detox.

Get the most out of your detox by adding probiotics. Everyone loves a good cleanse, but a cleanse or detox can be tough on your system. When you’re using high amounts of fiber, raw vegetable juices, and herbal protocols, probiotics can help soothe your belly.

7. They help you manage stress.

We all battle stress on a daily basis: at work, at home, on our commutes, even in our diet and surrounding environment. Stress weakens the immune response and increases your chance of getting sick. Probiotics are known to increase your body’s stress tolerance by preventing the growth of negative bacteria during times of stress.

8. They alleviate annoying allergies.

Hay fever, eczema, asthma, and food allergies can be debilitating (to say the least). With the right balance of beneficial microflora, you can fight off allergens and infections. Consuming probiotics can boost your inner ecosystem and help your immune system differentiate between friends or foes.

9. They help you bounce back after taking medication.

When your health requires a trip to the pharmacy, add some balance back to your system with probiotics. Antibiotics and prescription drugs take their toll, especially on your intestinal health. While taking medications, your intestinal flora becomes compromised, so adding probiotics to your diet can help offset the meds.

10. They’re delicious!

It’s easier than ever to find yummy probiotic products such as yogurt, cultured beverages, and even chocolate bars! Drinking KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drink, with up to 4 billion probiotics per bottle, is a refreshing and guilt-free way to get your probiotics on. The KeVita lineup complements a healthy lifestyle as an organic, low-calorie, dairy-free refreshment. Stop by your local natural foods market such as Whole Foods Market and pick up some KeVita for a revitalizing treat for your tummy!
