ZenSoy and Evolve Review and Giveaway


I try to eat as healthy as possible, even though sometimes I struggle with it. I like putting all natural products into my body. I know there’s nothing better than consuming something that will make your body happy. I am a big fan of soy products and I really love soy brands such as Silk and So Delicious.

I contacted ZenSoy and was thrilled when they let me review some fabulous products from their line. I was also sent some smoothies from Evolve to try as well.

About ZenSoy:
Family is the reason ZenSoy is always organic! We’ve been committed to providing families with wholesome, good-for-you delicious beverages for 5 generations. And, good-for-you means using only soybeans that are certified organic and grown in the U.S.
Pandas Against Pesticides is ZenSoy’s campaign to safeguard the environment and our food supply from harmful chemical pesticides. We are pledging 5% of all profits to international wildlife organizations and to promote organic farming.
This company has been unwavering in their commitment to the environment since they started ZenSoy in 1999, making delicious, organic, dairy-free products, free of chemical pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, and GMOs. All of their soymilk and pudding is made from US grown organic soybeans. Every time you choose ZenSoy, you and your family are taking a stand against threats to our health and environment.

About Evolve:
Evolve Kefir is a probiotic smoothie that was developed out of a mission to improve this nutritious beverage. Evolve Kefir Probiotic Smoothie captures all the health benefits of traditional Kefir, but also possesses:
Greater nutritional benefit. Evolve is great for your body! Enriched with fiber, protein, potassium and calcium. One cup of Evolve Kefir is considered an “excellent source” of each of these important and essential ingredients.
Smooth, easy-to-drink taste. We’ve refined our formula to be smoother and more fluid than traditional or other kefirs, with a softened tanginess. The Evolve Team has spent several years developing its formula to be more like a yogurt smoothie and therefore appeal to your entire family (even hard to please kids!).

A large 20 lb package arrived at my door yesterday. It was huge and I knew it was bursting with healthy, delicious goodies, just for me! I opened it up and discovered a package filled to the top with flavored soy milks, creamy, rich, puddings, and 5 gigantic bottles of smoothies. Wow, so extremely generous.



I received 3 containers of chocolate, chocolate/vanilla, vanilla, and banana Zensoy pudding, 3 small milk boxes in the flavors of vanilla, chocolate, and cappuccino. I received 5 large bottles of smoothies that consisted of peach, plain, strawberry, blueberry, and pomegranate. YUM! I couldn’t wait to try the pomegranate smoothie.






The first item I tried was the box of chocolate soy milk (of course!) It was rich and creamy and rich in that delicious chocolate flavor. It was smooth and was gone in 2.5 seconds. I loved it! I also love the cute little Panda Bear featured on each ZenSoy Package. The banana pudding reminded me of delicious home made banana pudding, and my childhood. Each pudding cup only has 110 calories, so it is figure friendly, and a great on the go snack. The pudding is a little thicker than normal puddings though. I sampled the Evolve pomegranate smoothie as well. It was very creamy and thick. It reminded me of making a pomegranate smoothie but without all of the work. It had a great fruity taste to it that was very satisfying. I can’t wait to try the rest of the products sent to me in the next coming weeks. I am happy that these companies truly care about their consumer’s health.

I have been trying to introduce more healthy eating habits in our house especially since we are getting older, (me & hubby) and everyone (my adult kids) eat at different times and not necessarily the right food, but we have tried a few soy products before (cheese, milk) and I generally buy organic when possible, I do buy the regular pudding and I know this is a much better alternative for all of us and they sound delicious, I would like to enter for contest 1, Thanks for the great descriptions/review of the products, very helpful info
