Tropical Kefir Smoothie



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.  🙂
