Kefir Smoothie

This delicious kefir smoothie is really nourishing for gut bacteria and has some great protective properties. A great way to start the day. You can buy whole milk kefir (unflavoured) from most supermarkets now. Whizz this up with frozen berries, 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and some green kale if you are brave!
Berries contain ellagic acid, a potent anti oxidant which has been shown to have cancer protective properties (a bit similar to curcumin). The best sources of ellagic acid are raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, pomegranate. Organic is best.
The flax seeds contain lignans which bind to and help clear used hormones and toxins from the body. Great for hormone balance.
Go for it!
