Probiotic Smoothie with Blueberries and Açai

To make this deliciously healthy smoothie I used kefir. If you are a vegan, raw milk kefir probably will not be your first choice, but kefir can also be made out of nut milk or coconut water. No matter what medium you are using to make kefir, the final product will come with all the health benefits of fermentation including the probiotic bacteria that is vital to your digestive health.


Ingredients: 
  • 3 cups home-made kefir
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp açai powder
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (for garnish)
  • 1 tsp sprouted flax seeds (for garnish)

Method:
  • Pour kefir into your blender bowl. Add blueberries, açai powder and honey. Blend until smooth.
  • Pour smoothie into tall glasses, garnish with seeds and enjoy in good company!


If you decide to use water kefir you may want to add a ripe banana for texture. You may also want to skip the honey and use a sweetener of you choice. Remember, however, that raw honey will help you boost your immune system, especially now during the cold season. 

Probiotics in kefir support digestive health and help you maintain a healthy gut. As you may already know, healthy gut is absolutely vital for the health and well being of the entire human organism.
