I made these yummy kefir smoothies for breakfast this morning.  They are super easy…and super nourishing!

Tropical Kefir Smoothies

2 quarts of whole milk kefir (here is a great post from Nourished Kitchen on the whys and the hows of milk kefir)

3 bananas

the juice of four oranges

1/4 c. raw honey

Put in blender, with a little ice, and blend away.  Serve and enjoy!

This made a huge amount – four of us drank up – and I pigged out and had a whole quart.  So please feel free to tweak this recipe however you need to if you don’t want that much.  I had enough left to make three of these:

A note on the milk kefir…you can order kefir grains here.  I did, and being as impatient as I am, I don’t think I gave them long enough to rehydrate.  So if you go that route – try to be more patient than I was!   But I did luck out and was able to bum some extra grains from someone I know. 🙂  They have done beautifully, and I have been able to share some of my own as they multiply.

And…the popsicle molds shown above, you can get here.  They are BPA free, and they totally rock.  🙂

About earthmuffinmom

I am a Christian mom and wife who is watching and waiting impatiently for the Lord's return in a world that is getting nuttier by the day. My main interests are in the areas of Biblical end times/eschatology and early Genesis/creation. To understand the end...you must understand the beginning! My other passion is health and healing! Our family has also been greatly blessed over the past several years with healing through natural health and diet (generally Paleo/grain free). I love sharing this information with other people, and helping folks in their healing journeys. That being said...I am not a doctor...so I'm not responsible for any decisions you may make in regards to your own health. Other stuff: I am married to a wonderful man who I have had the privilege of having three beautiful children with. We have been married for over sixteen years. I work full time, but have the blessing of working from my home, and I homeschool my oldest child. We enjoy homesteading...and while we live in a small, rural town...we have worked hard to develop our yard into a "little bit of country in town"...complete with our "farm dog," Buddy, and five chickens. Thanks for checking out my blog!
