1 cup kefir
1/2 cup frozen berries (blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries)
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
5 to 6 ice cubes
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
Quick tip: Too rushed in the morning to take out the blender and whip up a smoothie? Simply mix one part kefir with one part fruit juice in a glass. The banana and berries are prebiotic foods, which help stimulate the probiotics in the kefir to reproduce in your digestive system and create a healthy environment there.
