Have you ever had kefir? It is kinda like a liquid yogurt. Great for digestion and packed with protein.

If you are vegan or can’t find it go with some light unsweetened coconut milk instead. Something a little thick is nice in this drink to give it body.

I have not tried kefir either. Is it different than using yogurt? Do you drink the 16 ounces yourself or share? Also what kind of blender do you use? Thanks!!!

Looks delicious. And those cowboy boot glasses are awesome! I grow strawberries so I’m definitely going to try this recipe!
