Peanut Butter and Strawberry Chunk Kefir Smoothie

Our version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a cup, this Peanut Butter and Strawberry Chunk Kefir Smoothie has all of the flavor of our favorite sandwich, plus the probiotic power of Lifeway Kefir!

Servings: 2-3


  • 2 cups Lifeway Strawberry Low Fat Kefir
  • 8 fresh strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana, sliced and frozen
  • Small pinch of sea salt
  • Strawberry and crushed roasted peanuts to garnish


  1. Clean the strawberries and remove the green tops. Slice them in half and add them to the pitcher of a food processor or blender. Pulse until chunky. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chia seeds. Set aside to gel.
  2. Clean the pitcher (if using a blender) and add the kefir, banana and peanut butter. Blend on high until smooth, or until desired consistency is reached, adding more kefir or ice, if needed.
  3. To serve: divide the strawberry chia seed mixture into two to three glasses. Pour over the smoothie and garnish with crushed peanuts, strawberries and chia seeds, if desired. Serve with a spoon or a wide straw and enjoy!


  • We use strawberry kefir, but feel free to use raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate or any flavor you enjoy!
