Berry Kefir Smoothie

April 22, 2006

Kefir is an amazing food that has many health benefits. You can buy it in the dairy section at Whole Foods, or if you’re lucky enough to be near the Amish – I always seem to find some in their booths at the market. When I can’t get to the market, I usually use the Vanilla Kefir for some added sweetness.

Servings: 1 Smoothie
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Kefir
1/2 cup Frozen Organic Blackberries
1/2 cup Frozen Organic Pineapple
1 Organic Banana
1 Tbsp Golden Flax Seed

Instructions:
1. Grind Flax Seed in a blade coffee grinder (or spice grinder if you have one – lucky you!) – you get more from the flax if it’s ground!
2. Toss all items in a blender and blend.
3. So Easy! Serve and Enjoy
