A few days ago, I wanted a simple yet healthy breakfast but I didn’t want to make muesli. So I made a breakfast in a smoothie. I made this: it is a drinkable breakfast! It is a power smoothie! What is Kefir? Kefir is a fermented milk drink that originates in the Caucasus region. It is prepared by inoculating cow, goat or sheep’s milk with kefir grains. One can change the nutrient content by simply fermenting for shorter or longer periods. Both stages have different health benefits. Kefir health benefits: Kefir, over-ripened ( which increases the sour taste ) significantly increases the folic acid content. Kefir, also helps the lactose – intolerant people, in lactose digestion. It works as a catalyst, making it more digestible then other dairy products. It really works for me, because I am lactose intolerant in high doses of lactose. Kefir has evidence that it lowers the blood pressure. It also reduces cholesterol levels. So, kefir is good for you,… I buy it in my food health shop. It only has 1.5 % fat.You also can buy kefir in supermarkets but beware: they will contain cream! How to use? I make smoothies with it pour it on grains & cereals mix it with blueberries, strawberries, mix it with other fruit,etc. you can use it in desserts, I replace buttermilk for kefir. I use it in cakes, muffins & banana breads. Printable recipe here! Recipe: For 2 large glasses: so for 2 persons, each 1 glass Ingredients: 2 large bananas, peeled & cut into chunks 2 tablespoons of ginger syrup 4 heaped tablespoons of full oats 700 ml of unsweetened Kéfir, with least 1.5 % of fat Method: 1. Put everything together in a blender & blend until completely smooth. Enjoy! It really fills you up! I like smoothies, you like smoothies, everybody loves smoothies, right?
