Last night I came clean with my family and admitted to them that they’d already consumed three kefir smoothies without even knowing it!
Just so you know – I do not usually trick my family. But in this case, I wanted there to be absolutely no prejudices hindering their reactions. I’m okay with my treachery, because since then, everyone has told me that they really like kefir if it is part of a smoothie.
This recipe is going to be more like a formula, because not everyone has the same summer fruit in our freezers. So, see what you can make of it and be sure to come back and post what delicious smoothies you create with kefir!
- 10 pitted, whole dates
- about 4 cups of frozen summer fruit: Santa Rosa plums, wild blackberries, and strawberries
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 to 4 cups of kefir
- 1 tablespoon vanilla (optional)
In bottom of blender container or Vita-Mix wet container, place the 10 pitted dates, the frozen fruit and the coconut oil. Pour in the kefir and the vanilla. Blend until smooth!
Pour and serve. Just see if they can tell…
A friend emailed me recently and shared that my kefir post had reminded her of her growing up when she used to help some friend raise goats. She loved their kefir, enjoying it in the mornings with oats and in kefir popsicles. I plan to make some popsicles today out of this very same recipe. I lamented that I didn’t have any popsicle molds, but my friend mentioned that I could use ice cube trays with toothpicks inserted. We have some of the kids’ friends over today, and I will make mini-pops for their afternoon treat.
