Full-fat dairy products should be favored over low-fat and skim milk for those trying to conceive (and probably everyone else!). Kefir, like traditionally-made yogurt, is a fermented milk product so it provides beneficial bacteria for promoting immune and digestive health. Amazingly, fermented dairy also has higher levels of nutrients than their non-fermented counterparts! This delicious smoothie also features antioxidant-rich raw cacao, and essential fatty acid-rich chia seeds for supporting male and female reproductive health.
Blend with ice and water as needed until smooth. Makes 2 smoothies.
