where books are sold! Here is a sneak preview of one of my personal favorite recipes from the book: Tart Cherry Kefir on page 110.
Are you wondering what kefir is? Kefir is a yogurt-like probiotic rich beverage that makes a great base for this smoothie. You can find kefir in the dairy section of your grocery store or sometimes in the refrigerated area of a 'natural' foods section of the store.
Tart Cherry Kefir
1 cup frozen dark cherries
1/2 cup 100 percent tart cherry juice
1/2 cup plain kefir
4 - 5 ice cubes
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until icy and smooth.
Divide between 2 glasses and serve, or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 or 4 days.
