Love strawberries and kefir? Then you’ll love this smoothie.
The majority of my recipes call for between 4 and 6 ingredients, and some up to a whopping 15. This recipe is the simplest to date, with only 2 ingredients, both of which should come as no surprise :)
My girlfriend and I recently purchased 13 quarts of strawberries from a local Amish farm. Many were eaten on the drive home, others sliced and dehydrated, and the rest frozen for smoothies. Like most berries, strawberries are rich in a variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and are not too high in sugar.

Do you like Snickerdoodle cookies? Then your are going to love this smoothie!
Unlike the cookies, this smoothie is healthy; so you don’t have to feel guilty while slurping it down.
Turning the unhealthy into healthy is what we do around here :)
The inspiration for this recipe came from someone who emailed me asking that I create a healthy Snickerdoodle smoothie recipe. I searched the internet for recipes and found they were all quite unhealthy because of suspect ingredients and way too much sugar!
When the cold weather sets in I naturally turn to warmer food and drink such as soup, stew, broth, and tea. A cold smoothie is just not appealing.
I typically consume elixirs in the winter. However, warm smoothies have become more of a mainstay.
Warm smoothies are really easy to make. Simply warm the liquid a recipe calls for to just under a simmer. Then proceed with making your smoothie as normal. One caveat, you may want to avoid frozen ingredients.
