Sunshine Buttermilk Smoothie

Buttermilk smoothie might not be on your regular menu but hopefully we will give you enough good reasons to stock up on kefir (buttermilk) and make this probiotic smoothie.

Buttermilk is cultured milk and full of probiotics that are oh so important to maintain good bacteria in your gut. And why is that?! For oh so million reasons you need probiotics daily: to keep strong immune system, to maintain healthy microflora in your stomach and to reduce allergies.

Look for full fat plain organic buttermilk, often sold as kefir. That is all same thing.

Did you know that bell peppers are super high in vitamin C?! Same goes for oranges and mandarins, and basically any citrus fruit. And that mango lowers cholesterol, contains vitamin A for healthy eyes and alkalizes the whole body?! All good stuff here.

I am not sure why we have an apple in the picture next to buttermilk smoothie that doesn’t call for apples but who cares. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?! Keep your diet rich in fruits and vegetables and you won’t know your doctor.

For variety to maintain a healthy gut, try our creamsicle probiotic smoothie.
