Have you guys even heard of kefir? (I’m still not 100% sure how to pronounce it)

keh-FEAR

KEH-fur

Regardless of how you say it, it is a fermented drinkable dairy that is usually about 99% lactose-free and full of probiotics making it great for gut health.  It tastes a lot like yogurt!

Today is Recipe Redux day, and guess what the theme is…gut health!

I’ve always been a smoothie lover.  Growing up, mom used to make breakfast for us before school and cool smoothies were always a hit with me.  And strawberry always the favorite.

Kefir showed up in a few instagram stories, so after doing a bit of reading about it I thought I would give it a shot.  I love how it adds creamy texture and a slight tang to the smoothie, and gives my gut health a boost!

While I love smoothies, when I’m having a bad tummy day sometimes they aren’t the best option (too much fruit at one time can be higher in FODMAPs) so I’ve measured the fruit in this smoothie to make sure it is 100% tummy friendly.  It’s all about portion control here!
