Sugar free Chocolate Kefir Smoothie

DSC_2341_1707.JPGI 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.
