Digestive-Probiotic Green Smothie

Probiotic Green Smoothie

Hot days are creeping up and I’m in the mood for smoothies!! I try to monitor the amount of fruit I eat, especially when there is an abundance of amazing seasonal fruits available now. Green herbs are also in season and I love a good yogurt drink, especially when it’s homemade from grass-fed raw milk (recipe here).

The homemade yogurt makes this an amazing powerful probiotic (since I leave it 24 hours to ferment). The herbs add the touch of a digestive aid and beautiful flavor!

To make this wonderfully refreshing digestive-probiotic smoothie, you simply assemble:

  • 2-3 Cups of whole yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 Tbs. fresh green herbs such as dill, mint, parsley, etc… (I like to use 1/2 dill and 1/2 mint)

Place it all in a blender for about 20 second and enjoy 🙂
