In partnership with my friends at Culturelle, I’m thrilled to bring you this Probiotic Kefir Smoothie today!

Probiotic Kefir Smoothie

With some frozen berries, kefir, and a few glugs of coconut water, this delicious Probiotic Kefir Smoothie can come together in no time. This is one of those quick meals that you an easily whip up with little-to-no time available as the ingredients are easy to keep on hand. For the berries, I prefer to start with fresh berries from the market. From there, I will wash them, dry, and chop as necessary. I spread them out on a plate or baking sheet before putting in the freezer so that they don’t adhere to each other once frozen. Frozen berries are transferred to a container so that I can grab a scoop of them as needed.

Why kefir? Probiotic support! If you tolerate dairy, kefir is a great way to help keep your gut microbiome functioning at top notch. Our gut microbiome is not just responsible for about 70% of our immune system (that’s A. LOT.) but those little guys are also responsible for helping us to extract crucial micronutrients from our food.

Our microbiome takes hits to numbers on the daily. Whether it’s from stress, antibiotics, illness, foods that don’t agree with the population, or other various imbalances, our microbiome is being challenged on a regular basis. Therefore, it’s important that we help to fortify our army of tiny health warriors by supplementing with probiotic-rich foods and supplements.

Kefir is one of these foods! You can also lean on saurkraut, kimchi, kombucha, pickles (with live cultures), yogurt, and (of course) probiotic supplements like Culturelle.
