Banana Kefir Smoothie Recipe
You really do get the best of both worlds when it comes to a banana kefir smoothie. Not only is it a deliciously creamy drink, but it’s also an excellent source of probiotics.
And the health benefits don’t stop there.
- It keeps your digestion moving.
- Helps support your immune system.
- Gives your bones a boost of calcium.
In this recipe, the banana offers an excellent source of vitamin B6 and also contains Vitamin C, Potassium, and Manganese, all of which are important for good health. But most of all, bananas taste great and make delicious smoothies!
The banana kefir smoothie is full of so many vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, and fats that it can be used as a meal substitute or smaller quantities can make a great between-meals snack.
Furthermore, because of the fermentation process, kefir is almost entirely lactose-free, making it possible for most people who are lactose-intolerant to enjoy it as well.
The health benefits of kefir are vast, and while you could drink it solo, why not kick it up a notch by adding some fresh fruit and make it a tangy taste and healthy smoothie.
