smoothie_0218

I don’t drink smoothies that often, but yesterday I was in the mood for something creamy and sweet! This smoothie was¬†everything I wanted – creamy, fruity, sweet and a little tangy. It was great for my post – workout snack, and for breakfast this morning! This recipe makes 3 small servings, or 2 large servings.

Makes 3 servings.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups milk kefir
  • 3 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 inch piece ginger
  • 2 large carrots
  • leaves of 4 mint sprigs
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions

Peel the ginger and the carrots and chop each into large chunks. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. In the beginning you may need to use the crush ice function to crunch the strawberries. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
