Ahh Kefir. So many uses, so little time! Good thing for all those kefir-lover’s out there: I have a new recipe for you!

Now, here for you today is another colourful and delicious kefir recipe: a purple kefir smoothie!

This recipe brings together many of nature’s wonderful foods: kefir (which I hope by now you realise is an amazing food), chia, berries and coconut!

That looks absolutely delicious. Açaí and Kefir: Two of my favorite things together. I’m definitely going to have to make one of these for myself.
