This Strawberry Kefir Smoothie looks like a Lava Flow drink but has absolutely no alcohol in it and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast smoothie.
It’s made with just 3 simple ingredients consisting of strawberry kefir, white grape juice and frozen strawberries.
I’m from Canada a more cold than warm place that requires me to purchase more scarves and toques than t-shirts and shorts.
You have to be tough to get up and go to work, school and the store when temperature reach below -35. Where in most places your fingers and toes can freeze off in minutes if not seconds, if you’re not prepared.
However this doesn’t last all year-long, thank God. So when summer rolls around, most of us are outside as much as possible, enjoying the warmth we do have.
And believe me it get just as hot as as some of the beaches down in Florida at times. If you have been to Florida than you probably are familiar with the alcoholic “Lava Flow” also known as the Miami vice.
This drink is my creation of the Lava Flow that hails from sunny Florida. However mine is a smoothie that can be enjoyed for breakfast or just a healthy refreshing snack.
Rather than using alcohol we are using the super delicious and healthy Kefir yogurt to replicated the Lava Flow effect. Along with white wine grape juice and fresh strawberries.
This recipe makes two large glasses, so whenever you’re craving a cool refreshment or a sweet yet healthy treat. I hope you think of this simple drink!
