Raw Very Cherry Kefir Smoothie ~ A Recipe

We had the treat of spending the day with generous friends, stripping their three cherry trees and taking home some of the bounty.  Harvesting with friends is my love language, I think.

We ate lots of them fresh from the tree.  Others were pitted and frozen to be eaten straight from the freezer or put in this smoothie that tastes like summertime itself.  Freeze any smoothie leftovers in popsicle moulds for a cool-down dessert later on.

Very Cherry Smoothies
Prep time: 5 minutes, Makes 5 cups
Place all ingredients in blender (you will get smoother results in a high-speed blender like a vita-mix).  Blend on high for about a minute or until it's smooth enough to your liking.  Serve and enjoy!


  1. kefir and kombucha freak me out. i know they are supposed to be healthy, but the word fermented makes me gag. can you help me see the light? i feel like i'm missing out, but i also am terrified to partake, and even more terrified to try making my own. what if i make myself & my family sick? eek!

  2. I understand what you're going through. I was the same way when I first started. Then I realized that yogurt, cheese, buttermilk, and sourdough bread are all cultured/fermented items we use on a regular basis. Cultures For Health has very helpful articles and videos explaining what it is.

  3. I tried this very cherry kefir smoothie! Oh my goodness, as my 2 and 3 year old granddaughters say, DEWISHOUS!.... I love your blog! Thank you for sharing!

  4. So cute! :) And thanks for the feedback. I'm so glad y'all enjoyed it.

  5. Just made this and it's SO good. My entire family loves it. I was a little worried about the kefir overpowering the taste but it doesn't at all. What kind of milk do you use to make your milk kefir with?


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