This is a rather eclectic ingredient collection of smoothie ingredients. The greens are one thing. But what about the buttermilk and kefir? The buttermilk I’m using is full fat with live cultures.This buttermilk is so sweet and mild you can drink it plain. Not many buttermilks can make that claim.
I’m also using up the last of my[easyazon_link identifier=”B00B03ZZEM” locale=”US” tag=”homefoodjunk-20″]plain full fat kefir[/easyazon_link]. Chock full of probiotic, kefir makes a ton of nutritional sense in this breakfast. I used kefir recently in my Kefir Smoothie Bowl. I’m sort of addicted to it now. My granddaughter Ellie and I enjoy kefir most mornings for breakfast with my homemade steel cut oats quinoa gravel granola and frozen blueberries. She loves the combination! So do I. The health and flavor factor of natural grass-fed guernsey dairy products are amazing. Go find some and tell me if you agree!
