- (2 pints) Raw Milk Kefir
- (1) Banana
- (5) Strawberries
Making a Kefir Smoothie is so simple we never did a recipe for it until now. Finally it's here – complete with all the details and tips we've found helpful over the years.
The important thing to remember when making a Kefir Smoothie is that you can feel free to change this recipe around as much as you want and try tons of other variations to suit your personal preference. For example, double or triple the amount of berries or even add Blueberries as a third fruit variety.
These details are for making our favorite Strawberry-Banana Kefir Smoothie and should get you thinking down the right line on what all to experiment with.
Here's what you'll need:
- A blender of some kind to mix the smoothie
- Two pints of Raw Milk Kefir
- Strawberries – preferable frozen to make your smoothie a little slushy
- A ripe Banana – over ripe is even better since it will give added sweetness
- Stevia or Maple Syrup or some other type of natural sweetener can also be added to suit your taste.
- Optionally add a dash of Vanilla Extract
This is all you really need to make a great smoothie. Throw everything into the blender and run it for a minute or two until it's thoroughly blended and the fruit chopped up.
Pour your finished smoothie into a glass and enjoy!
Yup, it's that simple.
And as I mentioned earlier, there are endless variations. Use as much fruit as you want and as many different varieties – Raspberry, Blackberry, Peaches, Mango, Blueberry... Try different combinations or amounts of fruit and have fun being creative!
If you want to skip the fruit altogether try a dash of Vanilla extract and sweeten with Maple Syrup to create a Maple Vanilla Kefir Smoothie. Or use Cinnamon to spice things up... whatever you think would be interesting to try! :)
NOTE: Plain Kefir will keep at least a week in the refrigerator but a smoothie is best served immediately after blending. At the most it should only set in the refrigerator for 1 day before drinking.
