I love the energy a green shake gives me. I like having them at that 3-4pm slump. I always feel clean and revitalised after one. Adding water or coconut water kefir to my green smoothie not only increases the absorb-ability of the nutrients in the smoothies but also helps to heal and strengthen the digestive system and immune system.
See here for 5 Reasons to make Kefir. Great for these change of weather seasons.
You can use any flavour of water kefir second ferments or even the unflavoured water kefir.
The coconut water is quite tart and sour so combining with greens and sweeter fruit like berries or apple can help to balance the smoothie for the palate.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
