How to make coconut kefir smoothie
Coconut kefir made with coconut milk is a fantastic alternative to milk kefir. Especially for those with lactose intolerance. It can also be great alternative if you just want to mix it up a bit.
You can easily use coconut milk kefir as it is fermented, however, you can do so much more with it. Just as with milk kefir, one of the simplest way of using kefir in cooking is to prepare shakes or smoothies.
Strawberries can be replaced with just about any fruits or vegetables according to your taste. You can also add different natural flavourings like cinnamon or vanilla, however, make sure to taste before serving. Coconut already provides an intensive taste to mix and match well.
Overall it is all in the experimentation and that is the best part of it.
Add fruit to coconut kefir and process with a (hand) blender.
It tastes best when freshly prepared, but can also be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 day. If kept in the refrigerator for over than 1 day, the fruit will start to lose its nutritional value. Without heat processing, the fruit will ferment into alcohol. Enjoy delicious coconut kefir smoothie and see our similar recipes here.
