Kefir “Orange Julius” Smoothie

Kefir adds a healthy dose of probiotics to your breakfast smoothie. Homemade kefir contains a much wider spectrum of live probiotics than yogurt or store-bought kefir.


1 cup kefir, well shaken
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 very ripe banana
1 tablespoon honey or sugar (more or less, depending on your personal taste)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Handful of ice cubes


Place all ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth and frothy.


Add other fresh or frozen fruits, such as peaches, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or raspberries to this basic smoothie. Adjust sweetness to your personal taste.
