Recipe, Carrot Cake Kefir Smoothie Bowl
Kefir smoothie bowls are a fantastic way to start the day, or indeed as a snack throughout the day. You can chuck just about any ingredients you like in there and they are a great way to ensure you are getting a nutrient packed and filling breakfast (or lunch, snack etc.) full of probiotics to get you ready to take on the day.
Kefir is a natural way to ensure you are getting a good dose of good bacteria to keep your gut flora happy and thriving. This will improve your digestion, metabolism and support your immune system. Kefir has also been linked to a more restful nights sleep and better energy levels throughout the day. Yorlife kefir is great to drink on it’s own in one of our three fab flavours (Original, Blueberry & Elderflower and Mango & Passion Fruit) but it’s also a perfect addition to smoothies which you can create using fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds…well anything you fancy really.
Try our gut loving and filling carrot cake smoothie bowl, a delicious blend of dates, grated carrot and Yorlife (as well as some spices) – it’s the perfect balance of naughty and nice! It is rich in fibre and the turmeric adds an anti-inflammatory to soothe your tum. Make sure you share a pic of your creation and use the hashtag #YorlifeYourway
