I’ve been a little obsessed with kefir lately. When I saw they had an eggnog flavor, I jumped right on it. I’ve been enjoying kefir as is, but this time wanted to try it in a recipe.
Kefir naturally has a tangy flavor, so when incorporating it in a smoothie, a banana was the perfect way to sweetened it up.
Eggnog only comes around once a year, so I don’t mind indulging in a small glass one time a year. Eggnog just screams Christmas to me, and I want to enjoy that seasonal treat more than once without the guilt!
Enjoy as a breakfast, snack, or dessert to get in the holiday spirit! I know what I’ll be making for breakfast Christmas morning!
- Yield: 2
Indulge in the holiday seasonal flavors without packing on the pounds. Feel good about drinking eggnog with this eggnog smoothie recipe!
- 1 banana
- 1 cup Lifeway kefir eggnog
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- (optional) ground nutmeg
- (optional) ice
- Simply add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
- For a thinner consistency add more almond milk. For a thicker consistency add ice.
- Sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
For a festive rim: take 2 tbsp of sugar and mix in 1 drop of red food coloring. With a damp paper towel moisten the rim of the glass. Coat the rim of the glass with sugar.
I secretly love eggnog. I had no idea Lifeway had a kefir version – must look for this! Thanks for sharing 🙂
My kids are kefir obsessed. They drink it daily which, of course, is a good thing for their micro biome! I love your recipe. I always find eggnog to be too sweet, but this looks so much lighter!
Didn’t know there was such a thing a kefir eggnog. I like how you used it!
I love this idea for a way to enjoy eggnog (and get your yearly fix) without blowing it all out with cream and eggs. My younger daughter would love this, as she is also obsessed with Kefir.
