I have an undying love for kefir. You know this. Especially if we’re talking about frozen kefir – it is one of my favorite healthy treats. You already know this by the obnoxious amount of Instagram photos I post of my Starfruit treats. It’s love.

Remember my excitement when I found out my beloved kefir company, Lifeway, put their frozen kefir in pints and started selling it in stores? Well, now they are even cooler because they took their frozen kefir and started selling it in pre-portioned convertible packs with the name “Lifeway Probugs.” Sure, it’s geared toward kids cause it’s yummy, healthy, and fun. Well guess what, I am a kid at heart and no one can take my kefir away from me! Not even targeted marketing. I’m sticking my head in there and I’m staying there and that’s FINAL! 🙂

There are a ton of reasons of why I love kefir which I listed in one of my first posts. I’ve loved it way before I even started Sensual Appeal. It’s not just delicious, it is also 99% lactose-free and has 12 live active cultures per cup. It’s probiotic goodness! It’s easy to feel confused when you eat it, because it’s so darn good and good for you, it can be confusing. But it’s true. It has a ton of protein AND a ton of flavors available for their original kefir.

The Lifeway Probugs they launched are available in three flavors and I tried their strawberry banana flavor. My dad had a hilarious face when he first tried it, he wasn’t expecting it to be tangy. But after one lick, he pretty much inhaled the rest of the package. He told me to tell you all that “he approves.”

To make frozen kefir even better, I decided to make it into a fun recipe. I love me my protein shakes and I especially love making them extra delicious so people don’t even know they are drinking (or actually eating, cause it’s so thick) a good-for-you smoothie!

Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie (makes 2-3 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lifeway Probugs strawberry banana, frozen
  • half of frozen banana
  • strawberries, frozen but slightly thawed
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
  • cinnamon
  • 2-3 ice cubes

Directions:

Blend it all up in a blender on high! This makes a delicious smoothie that is SO thick, it can be eaten as dessert – I usually eat it as a treat and I like to top mine with extra cinnamon and maybe even some chocolate chips! Enjoy!

The Probugs are available now at Whole Foods. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

  1. How have I not heard of frozen kefir until now? I’ve used it for years in smoothies. Yay for a convenient pkg!

  2. Whoa. Frozen Kefir. Angels can now sing!

  3. I had kefir for the first time ever at the Shamrock Shuffle expo this year! I had heard of it before, but never given it a shot. They were actually given out samples of frozen kefir, but I didn’t get any — I’m not really into tangy, and I had heard someone say that it was tangy, so I wimped out haha. Maybe someday I’ll give it a chance!

    • OMG you have to try it! Just don’t try the original flavor cause that’s the tangiest one, but if you try a fun flavor I’m sure you’ll love it. Make a trip to Starfruit Cafe, they always have different flavors!

  4. It’s like GoGurt but WAY better. Whole Foods will be getting a visit from me for sure. I’ve never had it, but I so totally want to try it.

  5. I’ve never had kefir actually but now I’m thinking I definitely need to try it!! Especially in frozen yogurt or smoothie form!

  6. I really need to get myself a blender or nutri bullet. Every time you post another recipe I want a smoothie so bad and this one sounds great. I love bananas!!!
