Chocolate Kefir Smoothie

Guest Post by Krista A. Parr

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.

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup organic full-fat plain kefir or yogurt
  • 5 dates, soaked in hot water for 5 minutes or so
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1.5 Tablespoons sesame tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon raw, unpasteurized honey
  • 1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder or nibs
  • Pinch of fine Himalayan sea salt

    Blend with ice and water as needed until smooth. Makes 2 smoothies.
