Kefir Smoothie

renderedcontent-7272beda-1819-48e4-a940-c74ff8af47b6Cook’s notes: Kefir gives this smoothie a wonderful tangy flavor. This is a great smoothie without greens, similar to the transitional Low Fiber Smoothie: Peach.

Makes about 3.5 cups. (2 servings)


2 cups vanilla Kefir yogurt drink
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 banana, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup frozen blueberries (unsweetened)
1/4 cup frozen cherries (unsweetened)

Add all ingredients in the order they are listed (from liquids to soft to hard to frozen) to the Vitamix container. Secure the lid.

Turn the machine on to Variable speed 1 and slowly increase to speed 10. Turn the machine to High.

Use the tamper to push frozen fruit into the ingredients as needed.

Blend for about 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.

NOTE: This recipe has been written for the Vitamix 5200 with Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different machine, you may need to make adjustments to the speed or processing time. Know your blender and don’t overload the machine.
