Berry Basil Kale Peanut Butter Kefir Smoothie December 23, 2012

Most people probably go to the grocery store because they ran out of a staple like milk, or needed an ingredient for a recipe, but nope- I went for a bottle of the probiotic-rich, drinkable yogurt.

Drink in class, by pouring your smoothie in a wine glass. (hehe…I should be a poet…)
