Kefir is a fermented milk drink perfect for making smoothies. Fermented by lactic acid bacteria and yeasts, kefir has been associated with improved cholesterol management.


What are the benefits of probiotics?

olive nutritionist Kerry Torrens says “Probiotic bacteria is key to keeping our gut and immune systems healthy. We can support these helpful bacteria by including probiotic-rich fermented foods in our diet such as kimchi and miso. At the supermarket, check labels for descriptions such as “naturally fermented” or “raw and unpasteurised”. Some brands also add probiotics to products such as yogurt. This recipe will help beneficial gut bacteria flourish, and also include prebiotic ingredients such as bananas and nuts, which supply non-digestible fibres that fuel the bacteria.”
