CARB OVERLOAD!

56 grams of carbs! That is the equivalent of 1 cup of kefir with 13 teaspoons of plain granulated SUGAR added! There are healthier ways of getting your potassium and fiber without destroying your pancreas!

Yummy, especially with the addition of spices

Great tasting

I made this exactly as described and it was delicious. Found the vanilla kefir in local grocery store .Had a rich, satisfying taste and was filling. The calories are per serving, not for the entire recipe, per one reviewers comment.

Easy to make

Freshly different smoothie

I made a couple substitutions bc I did not have kefir. I used 1 banana, 1 cup of peach Greek yogurt, and 1/2 cup milk, with the provided spices and ice. This was the best smoothie I've had in a long time. Refreshing change from berries and flax seed that I usually make. It was gone in like 2 minutes, so good!

Tastes refreshing and comforting

Misleading calorie intake

The calories of a banana are 70-120 (ish).
The calories of kefir per cup are usually 100 - 150 (ish).

I don't know how two bananas and two cups of kefir equal 283?

Tastes great

The recipe makes 2 servings, but the nutrition information is per-serving, so it really equals out to what you'd expect - with 1 banana + 1 cup of kefir
