Chocolate, Blueberry and Cherry Kefir Smoothie recipe

Jump to recipe

A blueberry, cherry and chocolate smoothie made with kefir or yoghurt. Great as is but I usually add seeds and ground coffee to increase the flavour and nutrients.

The two kefir smoothies I make the most are Peanut Butter Banana Kefir Smoothie and this “black forest” smoothie.

I’ve listed spinach and ground coffee beans as optional ingredients but definitely add them if you have them. Frozen blueberries and cherries are cheaper than fresh and they make the smoothie cold so you don’t have to add ice.
