3 Healthy Kefir Smoothie Recipes

These kefir smoothie recipes combine some awesome ingredients to make a delicious and nutritious breakfast!

3 Healthy Kefir Smoothie Recipes

One of my favorite things to make for breakfast is smoothies. Not only are they delicious and refreshing, they allow you to pack a bunch of nutrient-dense foods all into one meal. It’s a great way to kickstart your day.

Today I’m sharing three healthy smoothie recipes that have very different flavor profiles despite having a common base ingredient!

 

3 Healthy Kefir Smoothie Recipes

All three of these smoothies contain an amazing ingredient that I consider a superfood: Kefir!

What exactly is kefir, you ask? It’s basically milk that has been cultured with beneficial probiotics. Kefir is kind of like yogurt’s cousin. It’s usually less thick than yogurt, and lends itself nicely to drinks. Like smoothies!

Why I Love Kalona SuperNatural Kefir:

Kalona SuperNatural is definitely my favorite store-bought kefir. It’s one of the few brands that make real-deal full-fat kefir. Another rarity: it’s non-homogenized! It also doesn’t contain any stabilizers (it’s full-fat so it doesn’t need any!). To top it all off, it’s certified 100% grass-fed.

But I wouldn’t be as excited about this kefir if it didn’t taste good, too! I love that it’s creamy and mild – not overly sour!

Now, let’s jump in and I’ll show you some awesome smoothies that you can make with kefir!

3 Healthy Kefir Smoothie Recipes

Blueberry Chocolate Kefir Smoothie

First up, we have this delicious Blueberry Chocolate Smoothie. This flavor is my kids’ favorite of the three because: CHOCOLATE.

3 Healthy Kefir Smoothie Recipes

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this smoothie: frozen blueberries, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, cream, frozen bananas, half of an avocado, and kefir.

Place everything in the blender and give it a whirl!

It’s amazing how well these flavors play together! I hadn’t tried blueberries and chocolate as a combination for smoothies before, but it’s really good! The avocado adds some healthy fats and creaminess, and the kefir lends and bit of tang to the situation. Yum!

I consider this one a superfood smoothie because it has some powerhouse ingredients: raspberries for antioxidants, kale for vitamin C, more antioxidants, and anti-cancer properties, ginger for an immune boost, collagen peptides for joint health and protein, and kefir for healthy fats and good probiotics.

Thank you so much for these! They got my sister through wisdom teeth surgery and healing back up afterwards. That chocolate blueberry one might be our favorite smoothie ever. We even add kale to it now, and you don't even notice it! It's so good!
