The Recipe: Banana~Blueberry Kefir Smoothie
Tips and what you will need: You will need A good blender, I love my Blendtec! You may use fresh or frozen bananas, frozen make the smoothie colder and creamier.
A beautiful, nourishing smoothie made with finger limes!
- 1/2 pint 6 oz. blueberries
- 1 quart kefir drinkable yogurt
- 4 bananas I like mine frozen so the smoothie is colder
- 1/4 cup honey
- 6 teaspoon Citriburst pearls or 6 finger limes
Muddle blueberries. (Muddle means smash, you can use a fork or potato masher)
Separate evenly into 4 tall glasses (about 1/3 cup per glass)
In a blender combine kefir, bananas, and honey. Whirl until smooth.
Stir in Citriburst pearls.
Pour mixture over muddled blueberries.

I can’t wait to try this. I have the blueberries…just need to find the kefir.
That should be easy enough! Good Luck!
I’d love to win so I can try out new fruit-based recipes to fit my new vegan lifestyle!
Good luck Kayley!
I have never met a lime I didn’t like. Definitely would love to try a finger lime … I am drooling just typing this.
We love trying new smoothies. They are the perfect summer breakfast and my little guy loves picking the fruit. We’ll have to try this!
I love how cute the finger limes look on the glass!
I’d love to win; I adore avocados and pretty much any kind of citrus!
This would be so nice to win. I’m loving the recipe. I’ve been tempted to try kefir. This would be a fun way to do that. Actually this gift box has several new to me things I’d love to try!
Huge Kefir fan!! I have yet to try finger limes, they look cool!
They are cool! Those little pearls are so tasty!
This smoothie is beautiful!!! I absolutely LOVE finger limes! They always sell out so fast when my local natural foods co-op gets them. So fun!
I’m so looking forward to trying these limes! As a central coast native, I know you can’t go wrong with Shanley products. I’m extremely happy that they are introducing finger limes to our area.
Hope you entered and if you did, good luck!
What a delicious creamy looking smoothie! I love the addition of finger limes, I need to find some of these!
They are fun aren’t they!
I’ve never even heard of finger limes before. Now I’m intrigued… 🙂
They are really fun! If you win you can experiment with them!
Have I been living under a rock, I have never heard or seen finger limes it’s even embarrassing saying that. I’m not a fan of kefir because of the taste but I think the honey masks it and I would stand it. Thank you.
I had never heard of them either!
Yum! This looks so good. A great breakfast after my workout and on the go!
Gorgeous smoothie, I love the flavors and use of kefir!
I haven’t made a smoothie in ages but I do love them. Need to try this recipe soon!
We taste tested kefir last week and decided we wanted to incorporate it into our diet. Perfect that I saw this recipe! I’d need to figure out where to get finger limes where I am though 🙂
If you don’t win the box, you could always squeeze some lime into the smoothie:)
What a gorgeous combo of flavours!
I was just saying the other day I want to get a blender so I can make smoothies especially with the summer being so hot this year. This looks delicious and I learned about two new food items I’d never heard about kefir and finger limes! 🙂
I love it when people learn something new. Thanks for the comment!
Whaaat finger limes!? That’s a new thing to me! This giveaway is really fun – hope I win! 😉
