Raw Strawberry Cacao Kefir Smoothies ~ A Recipe

I keep mentioning different kefir smoothies in our weekly menus, but have failed to provide the recipes.  So here we go: the first of seven kefir smoothie recipes to hit Riddlelove.

If you've never heard of or made kefir, find out all about it and get yer kefir grains here.  And just why do I use kefir instead of yogurt?  I'll tell you.  It's a lot faster and easier to make than yogurt and contains more beneficial strains of bacteria than found in yogurt.  There you have it.

Serves 4-5
Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high for 30-60 seconds, or until there are no big pieces found in the smoothie.

    This used to be a regular in our house, but now we've changed flavors. So YUMMY! I also love mango strawberry without the cacao.

  3. okay, yum! This was actually the exact recipe I was looking for yesterday when I saw it on your menu. I just made up a quart of kefir and I have a bunch of dates, so I will be making this as soon as I get some strawberries! And it'll give me an excuse to use my new Vitamix!!

  4. We drink a lot of smoothies in the summer! I'll have to keep this in mind! I linked to this from my blog FB.

  5. tomorrow morning this smoothie and i have a date! hahaha!blessings!

  6. Do you have any suggestions for making smoothies that do contain beneficial bacteria, but that are Dairy Free?

  7. You could try using water kefir instead of milk kefir. I've been told it tastes great!

  8. Mmmm! This was great!


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
