Strawberry Kefir Shakes

January 29, 2012

If you’ve ever had real, homemade kefir, it’s a bit sour. Maybe that’s an under-analysis of the sourness. It’s sometimes hard to just down. No offense, kefir lovers, but this tastes MUCH better in a shake.


  • You can substitute really any fruit but you may need to add more sugar or take away some. With strawberries, I suggest little to no sugar.
  • With blackberries and less sweet berries I suggest more sugar, about two teaspoons maybe.
  • If you make banana shake, just add double or a bit less than double bananas.
  • The ripeness of the bananas are important. Get the ripest bananas for the best taste.
  • You can easily double this recipe. Just make two batches.
  • If you like it a thinner consistency, you can add milk.

Strawberry Kefir Shake

Makes 4 1/2 to 5 cups of Kefir Shake


2 ripe bananas, the riper the better

1/2 (1 lb) box of strawberries

3 cups homemade kefir

1/2 cup milk (optional, depending on how strong you like the kefir in the shake to be)

Sugar, to taste (optional)


1. Peel bananas and place in blender.

2. De-stem strawberries and place in blender.

3. Pour kefir over fruit in blender.

4. Pour milk and/or sugar on top (optional).
5. Plug blender in and blend on setting “puree” for about 35 sec or until fruit is blended.
