I was really excited by how frothy this smoothie got! And it stayed frothy. All through a photo shoot and the 8.5 seconds it took me to slurp it down once the shoot was done.
It must be the kefir. Since reading Cooked by Michael Pollen I’ve been thinking about ways to re-introduce good bacteria in my diet.
I also chose kefir for this smoothie because it’s thinner and more sippable than greek yogurt. But it turns out the consistency isn’t the only difference. Their starter cultures are different so they contain different strains of bacteria.
I don’t think one is better for you than the other but it’s probably a good idea to switch between them and get the best of both bacterial worlds.

I was delighted by the juxtaposition of the tang from the kefir and the fragrant, floral taste of the jasmine tea. I used jasmine white tea. White tea is very mild, allowing the flavor of the jasmine to take center stage. White tea does contain some caffeine so be aware of that if you’re limiting your intake.
So give this peach smoothie a try this week and let me know what you think. Snap a picture, post it to Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #teainfusedsmoothieweekMLC. I love seeing my recipes in your hands (or on your lips if you can figure out how to get that shot. And, yes, that is a challenge!)
