An easy-to-make fruity summery smoothie with floral notes. It’s both delicious and nutritious. You need this blueberry kefir smoothie to give yourself a lift and a bit of a treat.
Kefir smoothies are my go to weekday breakfast. They’re super healthy and keep me going happily until lunchtime. Kefir is incredibly good for your gut.
Blueberry Kefir Smoothie
I do like a healthy start to the day, even if things go downhill later on. Green smoothies made with fresh leaves are my favourite. I usually add a banana to sweeten things up a bit, but that’s generally the only fruit I use.
However this blueberry kefir smoothie is a fruit smoothie and I wanted the flavour of the blueberries to shine through. I find bananas can muddle the taste sometimes. So, no banana was used in the making of this smoothie. Instead I added an apple for sweetness.
There are only six ingredients needed for this blueberry kefir smoothie, although you can add a teaspoon or two of your favourite superfood powders if you like. Just make sure they’re not green ones or you’ll end up with an unappetising brown drink instead of a vibrant purple one.
Rose syrup is easy to make and adds a wonderful floral accent to fruit smoothies, bakes and desserts.
I use organic milk to make my kefir, but you can use a dairy free alternative or even water kefir if you are vegan or have a dairy intolerance. Find out what kefir is and how to make it by following this link.
To make this blueberry kefir smoothie, you’ll need
- A power blender
- milk kefir (dairy or vegan)
- rose syrup (can use rose extract instead)
- chia seeds (or linseeds)
- rolled oats
