Review: Lifeway Kefir

I recently received my very first item from Influenster! I was so excited when my coupon for one free Lifeway Kefir product came in the mail. Of course I had to go use the coupon the same say and get started tasting and sharing my experience.

First off, let me say that I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. It was completely free to me. I was also sent a coupon for a future purchase, which I used at the same time as getting my free product so I could taste more flavors. On to my review...

I tried both the blueberry and raspberry flavors of low fat Kefir from Lifeway. On their label they refer to themselves as the "tart cousin of yogurt," and I must agree. My first sip was a bit of a surprise to me. It was a refreshing, lightly sweet and fruity flavor. The texture was smoother than yogurt, but also more tart. Actually, I rather enjoyed the tartness. Don't get me wrong, I love yogurt. I especially like the sweet flavors, but my tastes range and I can enjoy many.

I think that these Kefir smoothies will make a great quick morning, run and go breakfast. This is useful for me during the school year because I am usually in a rush. I also think it would be an awesome base for adding fruit and making a fuller smoothie drink. The raspberry came off a little more tart than the blueberry. I am looking forward to trying their other flavors as well. They also have frozen Kefir (much like frozen yogurt), that I had hoped to try. The store I stopped at didn't carry it.

All that being said, I would definitely purchase it again, but only for myself. I shared some with both my husband and my two year old. My husband agreed that it was a lot like Greek yogurt in some ways. However it was less dry, thinner in texture, and smoother. He loves Greek yogurt; I am not a fan. That made this more up my alley than his. My two year old made a crazy face because, like I said, its tart. Still, he labeled it "yogurt," which means he would at least attempt to try it again.

However, I think everyone in my family is up to try the frozen version! I can imagine it would make a delicious frozen treat. I have to keep my eye out for it now. I'll update you when I do try it.

Just a reminder, I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Thank you Influenster and Lifeway Kefir for the oppurtunity!
