The best probiotic power shake without the powder

Being on a very restrictive diet often makes me miss foods I used to consume, a regular milkshake is one of them.

When I was battling really intense Ulcerative Colitis symptoms only months ago, I had to rely on an Elemental diet ( pre-digested food supplement ) I used to take 3-4 Absorb Plus shakes a day and that helped heal my gut and gave me energy to carry out my day to day activities. As my body slowly healed, I was able to decrease the number of Absorb plus and slowly introduce easy to digest foods. 

Now, I still start my day with a nutrient packed shake that is much tastier than powder. I use Milk kefir and coconut milk kefir to power up my shake with 50+ strains of probiotics. The kefirs also offer a good source of good fats and protein, then I add my grass fed gelatin for more protein and gut healing powers and joint support. I keep a supple of frozen fruit in the freezer and add to it as I buy fresh fruit. I have found the combination of these ingredient gives me the best thick milkshake like texture and amazing taste. 

This is my go to meal replacement, a treat or dessert. This shake is so good that it makes me forget all about any food restrictions. 

Powderless power probiotic shake



  • 1/8 c Milk Kefir
  • 1/8 c Coconut milk Kefir
  • 1 tsp Grass Fed Gelatin
  • 1 tbsp Udo's oil
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1-2 frozen strawberries
  • handful of frozen fruit of your choice, sometimes I add baby greens from my garden
  • 3 drops stevia ( optional )
  • 2 tbsp water if your blender cannot handful all the frozen fruit

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender, I use a Nutribullet and let everything sit for a couple minutes to defrost before blending, otherwise I sometimes get chunks of the frozen fruit in the smoothie. If you have Vitamix or Blendtec, you probably can go straight to blending.

Had to share with my son 
always keep frozen fruit on hand
