Rainbow Kefir Smoothie

Show your pride with a seven-layer Rainbow Kefir Smoothie. It’s a stunning, gut-healthy blend of fruit and vanilla kefir. Every layer has prebiotic banana and our vanilla kefir, which has 12 live and active probiotic cultures. Prebiotics are the compounds in food that help the growth or activity of beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, in the digestive system. When paired together, they balance the gut microbiome to ensure regularity and optimal function of the immune system. Additional ingredients include strawberries and orange slices for vitamin C, mixed berries for antioxidants, and spinach for vitamin K and iron. To assemble, blend each layer and transfer to a bowl or container. Once all the layers are completed, carefully pour each color smoothie in rainbow order into a glass. For extra flair, garnish your rainbow smoothie with a toothpick of leftover fruit. You will be so proud of the results. Lifeway Kefir supports immunity, a healthy microbiome, and equality for all people because love is love no matter what.

Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Actually Need to Know

With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.

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.
