Strawberry Basil Kombucha Smoothie
People often ask me how they can get probiotics into their diet if they don’t eat yogurt.
Well, I have a special smoothie that delivers great digestive support, without the dairy that can be difficult for many of us to digest.
Here’s more about the nutrition firepower behind this smoothie:
– Kombucha: beneficial bacteria to support a healthy digestive tract.
– Coconut yogurt: some additional probiotics for the digestive system.
– Dates: provide fiber for healthy digestion, as well as minerals such as potassium and magnesium.
– Strawberries: high in vitamin C and manganese (for healthy bones, skin, and blood sugar levels).
– Flax seed: helps regulate blood pressure; also helps reduce risk for breast and prostate cancer.
I hope you (and your digestive system) enjoy this berry-licious smoothie!
- 1 1/2 cups Brew Dr. Strawberry Basil kombucha (or similar berry flavored kombucha)
- 1/2 cup filtered water, and additional water if needed
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
- 2 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 banana, cut into chunks and frozen
- 1/4 cup coconut yogurt (or substitute your favorite plant-based yogurt)
Add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender, adding the frozen fruit and ice last. Blend until smooth and creamy, using the blender's tamping tool if necessary.
Serve, and garnish with a big pinch of chia or hemp seeds, if desired. Of, if you want to get really fancy, garnish with a leaf of fresh basil.
