For those of you who have no idea what kefir is (pronounced kee fur) … it is a probiotic drink (that tastes very similar to thick and runny yoghurt) made from kefir grains (grains made of bacteria and yeast … resembles crumbled cheese/cauliflower). Long story short, Kefir has amazing health benefits. It is rich in calcium, protein, phosphorus and aids in digestion. What’s even better… it makes great smoothies.
Here is a recipe for a delicious blueberry peach kefir smoothie. You can use fresh or frozen fruit for this recipe. Put about 1/4 cup plain unsweetened kefir in a blender. Add about a handful of blueberries and 4 to 5 pieces of sliced peach. Then go ahead and pour in about 1 cup of milk (I use 2%). By all means, you can skip this step and substitute 2% milk with water or fat free milk. Add your favourite sweetener to taste. I added about a tsp of honey. Blend this baby up and what you’re left with is this gorgeous looking smoothie that is the best start for your day!
