GoodBelly
Through my adventures with stomach problems and digestion issues, I learned about the benefits of probiotics. I normally take a pill or two everyday just to aid in my digestion. I used to eat yogurt like nobody's business until I learned that the yogurt was part of the problem for me. Some people with lactose intolerance can have regular yogurt because most of the lactose is already digested by the healthy bacteria. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. GoodBelly offered me the dairy-free solution I was looking for!
I had been eying this product in the store, so I decided to give it a try. GoodBelly comes in different forms like the big juice cartons and also in little shot cups. There are six different flavors, so there is quite a bit of variety.
The juices in the cartons are just that...a juice. The flavors in the carton are Mango, Black Current and Cranberry Watermelon. Since I had so much and I have some adventurous friends we all tried some. The kids and I really liked the Cranberry Watermelon. It was a nice refreshing juice. The other juices were given good reviews for flavor, as well.
The shots also come in three flavors. They are Blueberry Acai, Strawberry Rosehips and Peach Mango. The reviews on the shots is pretty much the same across the board. They taste a lot like the creaminess was taken out of the yogurt. You get the flavor of yogurt, but without the smooth mouth feel you get from yogurt. I think the shots would be great in homemade ice cream recipes or smoothies. That way you can add the benefits of the probiotics in everyday foods that don't typically have them already. I wanted to play with them even more to make sauces or bake with them, but you lose the help benefit of the probiotics with you heat them. So, even though my stash is gone now...I plan to get more to play with!

GoodBelly is dairy, soy and wheat free, so it is great for people with food allergies. My youngest one is already questioning when I am getting more of the Cranberry Watermelon flavor...so I would say that one is the favorite around here!
