Recipe: Shamrock Water Kefir Shake

This smoothie is good for anyone who can’t handle fructose, the sugar found in all fruits. Although low in sugar, it's heavy on the probiotics, healthy fats, and greens. It won’t be easily mistaken for the overly sweetened commercial shamrock shake, but its color and slightly sweet peppermint flavor will leave you feeling satisfied.


  • 1-1/2 cups water kefir
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 ripe medium avocado
  • 3 large kale leaves
  • 1/4 tsp. mint extract
  • 1-3 tsp. honey, or to taste
  • 4 large ice cubes


  1. Combine water kefir, coconut milk, avocado, and kale in blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add mint, honey, and ice cubes and blend thoroughly.
  3. Taste and add more honey as desired for sweetness. Blend again until completely combined.
