I love smoothies to start by day off right and this is one of my faves lately! Ingredients include frozen banana and raspberries, walnuts, chia seeds, collagen and kefir. I love to make my own kefir but when I’m taking a break I use Lifeway kefir, which is what I used in this recipe. Simply blend up all the ingredients and enjoy this refreshing smoothie!

Ingredients for Raspberry Walnut Kefir Smoothie

Frozen raspberries add antioxidants, vibrant color, and subtle sweetness.

Frozen banana adds a sweet creaminess.

Walnuts are rich with omega-3’s and antioxidants

Collagen Peptides Powder are high in protein and known for their benefits for joint and bone health

Kefir is a great way to get probiotics into your smoothie. I used Lifeway 1% Kefir for this smoothie, you can purchase Lifeway Kefir products at Lucky, Rite Aid Pharmacy & Safeway.

Chia Seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.

    This smoothie looks really yummy. I have made lots of smoothies in my life but have never added any nuts. I am going to try this recipe next time. I am curious about the walnuts. This recipe sounds really interesting and looks delish!

    I do love a yummy berry smoothie and yours looks great. I also like ice pops so would totally be down for making them from the smoothie, should the unlikely instance of leftover smoothie occur.
