Morning Kefir Shake

Kefir Shake

I love my morning Kefir shake. I have this almost every morning. I’m not a big breakfast person and with trying to get our homeschooling going at 8:00 A.M. I need something quick and filling. This fits the bill most of the time.

This morning I drank my Kefir shake at 7:30 A.M. and didn’t feel hungry until 11:45 A.M. (I checked the clock). My hubby drinks one every morning too and it keeps him satisfied until lunch.

Here is my basic Kefir shake. I sometimes add other powders or oils to it. I will add my Cod Liver oil to this but make it extra sweet so I don’t taste any of the Cod Liver oil. I have some MACA powder that I want to try but haven’t yet.

  • 1 cup plain Kefir
  • 1 scoop Swanson protein powder
  • 1 tsp bee pollen (optional)
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk from the can (not the carton)
  • 1 TBL coconut oil or MCT (coconut becomes solid in the winter months Winking smile so I then switch to MCT Oil)
  • Sweeten to taste, I use Kal stevia (Kal less than a little scoop)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries or 1 cup of any other berries (I try to keep our shake low glycemic so that's why I keep to the 1/2 cup blueberries or 1 cup of any other berries)

I put all but the berries in the blender first and blend, then add the berries (this seems to keep the coconut oil from becoming solid which if it does you'll have little coconut chunks). Taste before pouring into your glass to see if you sweetened it just right, add more sweetener if needed.

If you don't have Kefir on hand Greek yogurt will work but I add some almond milk or water so the shake/smoothie won't be so thick.

Other sweeteners I use:
