I recently started an herb garden so I have been adding herbs to everything. The mint in this smoothie gives it a freshness, and mixed with the creamy kefir and mango and a bit of ginger for spice, what you get is the perfect summer drink to enjoy on the patio.

Serves 2

1 1/2 cups unsweetened kefir
1 cup frozen mango
1 packet ginger tea
1/4 cup warm water
2 sprigs of mint leaves (about 10 leaves)

Dissolve the ginger tea in 1/4 cup of warm water.

In a blender, add kefir, mango, ginger tea, and mint leaves.

Blend until smooth.

Serve immediately. Garnish with mint.

You can use yogurt instead of kefir, but I love kefir. It has so many health benefits.

The ginger tea is what sweetens the drink (aside from the mango). I like the brand below, but what you need is the ginger tea that comes in granules. If you can’t find it, add 1 teaspoon fresh ginger and 2 tablespoons of honey or sugar.

This can be made in advance and kept in the fridge, but is best when made fresh.

Want to spike it? Add white rum.
