A watermelon-lime-kefir smoothie for a feel-better Monday
Monday, May 15, 2017
I've had a cold all weekend, and I'm hoping it goes away quickly because this weekend is BUSY! The kid has his spring band concert on Thursday, the band banquet is Friday and he has senior prom on Saturday.
Plus, I have not one but two dental appointments on Wednesday, and have you done that when you can't breathe out of your nose? Good times.
Anyway, here was my breakfast:
The one good thing about cold medicine is that it completely kills my appetite so I really had to work up an interest in making breakfast.
I had some leftover watermelon chunks in the fridge, which inspired me to make a smoothie based on an agua fresca. The combination of watermelon and lime is one of my favorites and I figured that a base of plain kefir would go with the sweet-tart flavors. I figured right. I also added a little agave syrup. If you use a flavored kefir (Lifeway makes a limited-edition watermelon kefir!) you can skip the agave.
- 1 cup plain kefir
- 1 cup watermelon chunks
- 1/4 of a peeled lime wedge
- 2 teaspoons agave syrup
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
Blend everything together until the lime and ice are thoroughly processed.
