Tammy's Review: 

This is our favorite, quick-and-easy kefir smoothie. We always have strawberries and bananas on hand (or at least, almost always!) and the flavors combine for a lovely fruity and healthy kefir smoothie! :)

I don't always add the stevia, especially if the banana is really ripe, but if you want a sweeter drink, the stevia works well. If we're having this for breakfast, I usually add the protein powder, so it holds us over until lunch. :)

Our children love this recipe, and we do too! My rating: 10/10

Berry/Spinach Smoothie

I haven't tried this but I'm sure it's good. I just received kefir from a friend today and this recipe inspired me to try it in my traditional shake. Considering I've never used kefir and I used it full strength it was a little more tangy than I would have wished. Next time, I will use half milk half kefir. I thought some other health cautious people out there might enjoy it as well.
Berry/Spinach Smoothie
1 large handful fresh spinach
1 c. frozen blueberries
1 banana (I like to freeze mine to make it extra cold)
1 T flaw seeds
1 c. 100% berry blend juice that has no extra sugar (I use Ocean Spray's cranberry, blueberry, blackberry mix)
1/2 c. milk (This is where I used Kefir in the recipe-I'll use 1/4 c. kefir and 1/4 c. milk next time)
Blend all ingredients together. FYI since this has no preservatives the smoothie will turn brown if it sits overnight-it's best right away.

My favorite smoothie!

Our family has smoothies either for lunch or with lunch nearly every day. Each of us have our own personal favorite flavors. This is mine (though I don't measure - just a handful of strawberries, one banana, enough kefir for the right consistency, and the scoop of whey protein powder). Sometimes I add a bit of cashews pieces or a sprinkle of unsweetened shredded coconut, but I prefer just the basic delicious smoothie. :)
