Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie

Today’s #recipe is all that with a cherry on top! 🍒Inspired by one of our favorite desserts, we take the rich taste and silky texture of cherry cheesecake and transform it into a scrumptious smoothie. It’s a thick, creamy treat that rises above conventional smoothies thanks to our Lifeway Whole Milk Vanilla Kefir. Packed with #protein and #calcium, the naturally tangy flavor of Lifeway Kefir, fortified by 12 live and active #probiotic cultures, is exactly what you want in your cheesecake.

Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunityimprove allergies, and improve digestion.

Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole fat milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.
