Product Review - Good Belly Probiotic Juice Drink...
Good Belly, I’m totally addicted!
I’d seen Good Belly around plenty before, however why I never tried it until two weeks ago I don’t know. After all I’m a total fruit juice junkie! I absolutely love the stuff, particularly orange juice, and while I try not to buy it too often - because of the high calorie/high sugar content of most commercial fruit juices, - there are definitely times where I just can’t say no.
A couple of weeks ago I was at grocery, shopping and the juice wall inevitably caught my eye. I opened the refrigerated door to grab my usual carton of O.J. when the bright flashy carton’s of Good Belly caught my eye. I grabbed one and began reading the side, which gave me a lot of information about probiotics and healthy digestion. Which I’ve read plenty about already but it’s always nice to have a refresher. Besides up until that point I hadn’t really known much about Good Belly, and didn’t know that it contained 20 billion live and active cultures. 20 billion! That’s a lot. After reading all the fun-filled facts on the side of the carton and determining that Good Belly was not only Organic but also vegan and soy-free I thought why not give it a try? My digestion’s been kind of all over the place again since I got off my cleanse at the beginning of this month and reverted back to eating extremely rich foods once more. I figured if Good Belly was half as good as the carton claimed it was, having a glass a day could only be of benefit, so I grabbed a carton.
I was hooked from my first sip. No lie this stuff is like crack. It is so delicious! The flavor combinations are incredible and while the juice is sweet, I don’t find it to be overly so. The calorie count isn’t bad either and is actually less then my usual orange juice, which doesn’t have the added benefit of all those amazing probiotics. Even my husband who was far more skeptical about it then I, fell in love at first sip. We’ve gone through 4 cartons in 16 days! And I have to say, honestly I feel fantastic!
Now when it comes to Good Belly there are a few different flavors and a few different kinds of products. We’ve been enjoying the Family-Sized Quart containers, and so far we’ve tried the Cranberry Watermelon, Blueberry Acai Berry, Pomegranate Blackberry, Mango, and Tropical Green flavors. All of which have been absolutely fantastic but so far I’d have to say Cranberry Watermelon is my hands down favorite. There’s just something about it that’s so mouth-watering. For my second pick I’d say Blueberry Acai and Pomegranate Blackberry are tied, they are both amazing, delicious and so addictive.
Of course if you’re not into the family sized cartons you can always pick up a four pack of Good Belly Plus, which is basically the same thing but smaller and it also comes in a strawberry flavor. Or you could try a pack of Good Belly Straight shots which are actually a non-dairy oat milk with no added sugar. Neither of which I’ve tried yet but am really looking forward to eventually grabbing up some straight shots. Then of course if you need a major digestive overhaul you can grab the Good Belly Big Shots which have 50 billion live and active cultures but is still gentle enough on your system to drink everyday. Good Belly also makes a gentle probiotic drink especially for children called Good Belly Kids which contains 10 billion live active cultures. So you’ve got a few options.
What I love most about Good Belly - besides it’s awesome taste - is that it has a very smooth texture, and it tastes like a truly decadent fruit smoothie yet doesn’t have all the heft and sugar that you get at the typical smoothie joint. All the fun flavor none of the drawback. Love it! So whichever route you choose to take I highly suggest you try out the cranberry watermelon flavor, I don’t think you’ll be sorry.
