Coconut Milk Kefir Smoothie

I have fallen in love with making my own coconut milk kefir and yogurt.

I’m addicted.

I don’t know why, but it’s extremely satisfying and fun! You can bake with it, put it in smoothies, eat and drink it plain, and it’s extremely good for you.

Just watching it transform from one thing into another is like performing your own science experiments at home.

I guess it satisfies the nerd in me.

There are numerous ways to make the kefir or yogurt.

You can warm it with your oven light, put it on a heating pad in a cooler, let it sit on a heat register…but I found this yogurt maker on Amazon. It makes making the kefir and yogurt so easy! And it was only $24.99, so very affordable.

This morning we used some of the coconut milk kefir in our smoothie. Delicious!

I’ll post my Vanilla Coconut Yogurt recipe in a few days. It’s just as easy to make as the coconut milk kefir with only a few small adjustments.

Tony arrived home last night!

Tails are no longer tucked under, ears are perky, and wife is happy. We are off to walk the dogs.

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

  1. I love your jars. I didn’t know you could make this using coconut milk! I would love to try this – I think I need to be doing some science experiments on my bench top. I love how green your lawn is and your garden looks great. Welcome home, Tony xx
