Good Morning Kefir Smoothie
This is my morning smoothie most mornings. I love the probiotic variety that kefir provides (double the probiotics of yogurt). Yet I love the protein that Greek yogurt provides so I combine these two powerhouse foods.
- ¾ cup plain kefir
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- ½ cup spinach
- ¾ cup blueberries
- 1 tablespoons ground flaxseed
- ½ tablespoon maple syrup (if needed)
Combine all ingredients into a blender and “let it rip”.
