Sophie’s breakfast smoothie

A lovely smoothy
The best kefir in Brussels!
I like smoothies, you like smoothies, everybody loves smoothies, right? 

 

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.

  1. I wish I had one right now as it’s time to get everyone up….We love smoothies, too, and make them simply with fresh fruit plus frozen bought at TJ’s–the frozen not only adds flavor but icy thickness so we don’t add any yogurt, milk, ice cream or kefir.

  2. yes I love kefir, but to be honest I did not know all that history about it, so thank you for sharing. I know it’s really good for you in the probiotic way too, right? not to mention all the calcium us women need. wonderful post Sophie!

  3. Looks great! I make a smoothie almost every day. My typical blend is half a banana, some berries, a few spoonfuls of yogurt, milk , flax and tofu. It sounds a little weird, but you don’t taste the tofu at all, and it’s so healthy!

  4. Yum Sophie – that looks great! Did you make the ginger syrup yourself or did you buy it? Thanks also for your congratulations about the job – I am SO looking forward to it. There is a party for thirty to forty next week so I will be busy!

  5. Hi Sophie,I love kefir, as a matter of fact I have every morning, of course not as fancy as the way that you featured in your post…will try the smoothie. Again, thank you so much for visiting my site, I really appreciate your support.

  10. ooh yes! I’ve heard about the great benefits of kefir…but it’s sour-tasting to drink by itself, so I love your recipe!

  11. Yumyumyum! I’ve heard of kefir but wasn’t really positive about what it was- thanks for the information on it! This looks so yummy, I would love to try this. Perhaps it will be my breakfast some time this week!

  12. My father-in-law swears by this! I love your idea of using it as a substitute for buttermilk. I’ll definitely keep that in mind. Thanks for all the great nutritional info.

  13. Sophie this looks delicious and so healthy! I am in desperate need for a smoothie like this right now – I am having trouble staying awake this morning 🙂

  14. My bff makes her own kefir and I haven’t tried it because I am lactose intolerant so I’m glad to read that it can help with that…

  17. @ everyone: thanks for those lovely comments!@ Dawn: we, women, need our calcium don't we?@ Catherine: thanks for those yummie tips!@ Sara: Sometimes, I make my smoothies like that too, but sometimes we want a change, don't we?@ Prue Barret: I didn't make my own ginger syrop, I bought it at my asian market@ Diana H: the ginger syrop is a lovely addtion, it gives a yummie ginger flavour & a bit of sugar is in there too,…@ Jennifer: my doctor, my gastro – enterologist who discovered my lactose intolerance, said that I am lactose intolerant in high doses so that I can digest Kéfir without cream in it! If you are not sure, ask your doctor before trying!
