Lately I’ve been reaching for whole milk kefir when I make my breakfast smoothie. Kefir- a cultured milk- has a thick and creamy consistency and tangy flavor. It’s delicious blended in a smoothie with sweet pineapple and buttery avocado. A sprinkling of hemp seeds adds an extra hit of nutrition.

1/2 a medium ripe Hass avocado, peeled and pitted

In a blender container combine kefir, pineapple, avocado and hemp seeds. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass. If desired, sprinkle with additional hemp seeds.
