I love whenever I get the chance to try new drinks that are much healthier than my normal choices.
I’m not a big alcohol drinker, so I love when I find alternatives.
Today I’m going to share with you guys some probiotic drinks along with a wine alternative from Karuna & Karviva.
So let’s jump into it.
Trying Karviva Alcohol free drinks and Karuna probiotic drinks
So I received 4 drinks with 2 of the same drink (Karviva unwined).
The Karviva Unwined : Aronia berry, mulberry, schisandra berry in an alcohol free juice blend
I was really excited to try this drink.
It starts off kind of deceiving because at first touch to my tongue.. it seems like it’ll taste like grape juice but then it tastes bland and then kind of bitter.
It also has some vegetable sort of aftertaste to me.. like a…. celery! That’s what it tastes like.
I had to keep sipping it to figure out what that taste was and the aftertaste is kind of celery like which is weird.
I don’t really like this to be honest… It wouldn’t be my first choice of drink unless I was mixing it with something else.
My boyfriend tried it and he didn’t like it all.
Karuna Whole Plant Juice : Peach, Mandarin, & Kiwi
This one is my favorite!!! I could drink this everyday to be honest.
You can taste a bit of mandarina and peach in it.
I can’t really taste the kiwi, but then again I’ve never had a pure kiwi before so I don’t know what it tastes like on its own.
This tastes sweet and like a juice water blend a bit.
It’s not super duper sweet, but it tastes refreshing and it’s delightful.
My boyfriend enjoyed this one and actually liked it the best.
Karuna Whole Plant Juice – Mango & Goji Berry with lemon & red dates
It says it’s supposed to rejuvenate you.
This tastes like… I don’t even know how to explain it.
It’s like water with hints of fruit in it, but it’s not really sweet.
It’s not bad, but I guess I was just expecting a bit of a sweeter taste.
I do taste some subtle hints of mango in it for sure.
There is a slight aftertaste that I don’t really care for to be honest.
If I sip some and hold it in my mouth for a bit, it does taste sweeter though. It’s kind of weird.
I would honestly probably put this in a blender with some actual fruit though (like strawberries) for an actual smoothie.
My boyfriend didn’t like this one at all. He said it tasted like an extremely watered down drink.
My thoughts on Karviva & Karuna?
I feel like the drinks could be a hit or a miss depending on what your tastes are.
I know I’m more prone to like fruity drinks that are peach, pear, orange like versus berry or mango like.
I think that if you’re looking for probiotic drinks or an alcohol free drink, give it a try because you might like it if you’re a wine drinker… but for me personally I only liked the Peach, Mandarin, & Kiwi drink.
I also have to mention that they have other drinks I’d like to try; Grape & Kiwi or the banana & cinnamon drink.
I think those might be tasty to try.
So those are my thoughts.
Would you try these drinks out for yourself?
