Lifeway Kefir First Impressions- Influenster Lifeway Kefir program

I recently received a envelope from Influenster,  with a different type of testing program.  I was asked to participate in the Influenster Lifeway Kefir Program.  Usually this would be a VoxBox program, where Influenster sends the products for review in a box directly to me, but because Kefir items need refrigeration, Influenster sent me a coupon for a free product.

What is Influenster, you ask?  Influenster, for those of you who were living under the same rock I was, is a company that gives surveys and collects reviews of pretty much any product or organization under the sun.  Every once in a while, you are offered to take a special survey to see if you qualify to receive a VoxBox- a box of goodies, to test out and give a review for.  Influenster is totally free; both to join, and to receive the samples (if they choose you).  It's an awesome program for those who are trying to get noticed in the blogging world, or in the youtube community.  While Influenster is free, you do need a personal invite from a current member in order to join.  If you would like an invite, email me here and I would be happy to send you one (I only have ONE left!).

Ok, on to the goodies :)

My letter from Influenster
Influenster sent me a letter, asking me to use the enclosed coupon for a free product, and with a little information about the Lifeway Kefir brand.  Kefir is basically yogurt with a kick: it has more probiotics than any other yogurt.  

Coupon Packet
In my envelope, I received a cute little coupon pack.  Lifeway produces their Kefir brand in both drinkable yogurt and frozen yogurt.

From the coupon packet:
     "Good bacteria" like the probiotic cultures in Lifeway Kefir may help support a balanced digestive system and a healthy immune system.  Pour it over granola and fresh fruit, blend it in a smoothie, turn it into a dressing or dip-or drink it straight from the bottle.  Lifeway Kefir is a healthy breakfast or snack that the whole family will love-and try our Frozen Kefir for dessert!  Visit Lifeway.net for recipe ideas, product information and to download new money-saving coupons every month.

My coupons
Influenster provided me a with a coupon for a free Lifeway product, and a coupon for $1 off any 2 Lifeway products.

Lifeway Lowfat Keifer Strawberry Smoothie, 32 fl oz.  Retail $3.99
I went to my local grocery store, and the only Lifeway Keifer product that they currently stock is the Smoothies (found in the drinkable yogurt section). I chose the Strawberry flavored smoothie.

I bought this home and immediately my kids wanted to try it.  I poured them each a glass, and they downed it in no time flat- they LOVED it!

I tried it out for myself, and while it is a little bit tangy, it tastes really good.  It has a smoothie consistency, like most drinkable yogurt.  I found that the colder the drink is, the less tangy it tastes.  I'm not personally a "tang" person, but I really liked this drink!  It's good for you, tastes great, and my kids love it- I'm totally sold!  The added bonus is the boost of probiotics- who doesn't love a healthy body?!

I'm glad I have another coupon to try this again with- I will be getting more of the drinkable Lifeway Kefir, and try out a couple different flavors.

Would you like a glass of Kefir?
Now tell me, have YOU tried Kefir yet?  What do you think?  

Here is my video first impression of Lifeway Kefir:

Until next time, my lovelies, stay Average!
