Chocolate Strawberry Kefir Shake October 12, 2011

Jamie says:  Yoga.  It’s a gentle workout, right?  Sometimes, not always.  But certainly not this time.  My arms were shaking from doing so many chaturangas.  They still are.  Yup, it was yoga that did me in.  As a post-work out snack I made a Chocolate Strawberry Kefir Shake.  Kathryn eagerly volunteered to be my unbiased taste-tester.  The slightly bitter and slightly sweet chocolate flavors balanced each other out nicely.  Let’s just say I ended up making another batch…
