Spinach and Avo Smoothie

You know when you just don’t feel like cooking, but you know you need fats, protein, probiots and all that good stuff to get you going? Well – here it is! All in under 5 minutes and with minimal clean up. There is so much goodness in this little recipe that your body will LOVE you for it! Milk Kefir is a staple in our diet – we have it every single morning without fail! The benefits are ASTOUNDING! Milk kefir may also work for those who are lactose intolerant as the milk kefir grains tend to get rid of most of the lactose during the fermentation process.

  • You may like to blend the ‘hard ingredients’ before adding the milk kefir. It depends on your blender/food processor.

Milk Kefir Grains:

The milk kefir grains look like this – kind of like cauliflower

You strain the milk like this after it has fermented

Press it through the sieve and put in the fridge.

The grains that are left in the sieve go into fresh milk to ferment for the next morning!
