Pineapple Peach Kefir Smoothie

27 Jun

pineapple peachThe sibs visiting from out of town are quickly adapting to the nightly smoothie routine. Tonight’s concoction: pineapple, peach and kefir. Here’s what I used –

  • 1/3 of a pineapple
  • 2 peaches
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla kefir
  • 5-6 soaked Brazil nuts

Vitamix, first on low and variable. Then high-speed, especially with the Brazil nuts; needed to pulverize them. The pineapple and peaches by themselves were nice and tasty, but too light. Too airy. Not enough dimension to the drink. So I added some vanilla-flavored kefir for the fat from the kefir/yogurt-like drink. Plus the vanilla flavor and slight sour of the yogurt adds dimension. I added Brazil nuts because — well, heck — they’re rather healthy. Plus, they also added some weight and oil to the drink. Very nice end result. Light fruit flavor with the sweet pineapple and peaches, with layers of vanilla, sour and nuts (a smidge, just a smidge bitter).
