I usually just use fruit in my milk kefir smoothies but on the weekend it is nice to do something out of the ordinary and have a special treat. A while back I adapted a chocolate smoothie recipe and made it with milk kefir. It was okay but nothing special. Today a friend was asking for smoothie recipes that her kids would be more willing to drink so I drug out the recipe and tweaked it. So here is the new and improved recipe and it is pretty tasty if I do say so myself. This recipe is for two servings.
- 1 C milk kefir
- 1 banana
- 2 t vanilla
- 2 t cocoa
Place all ingredients in a glass jar and blend with a stick blender and blend until smooth. Serve in your favorite glass and enjoy. It can also be blended in a food processer, Magic Bullet, Ninja, etc. For a Mexican twist add 1/4 t cinnamon. I like to add almond slivers and eat it with a spoon.
