Blueberry Kefir Post-Workout Snack

This post-workout snack offers up to 80 billion probiotic organisms per serving and the perfect ratio of carbohydrates and protein to help replenish and refuel after a session at the gym or an intensive yoga workout. You can even enjoy it as a quick and filling breakfast or as an afternoon snack to help tide you over until dinner. I love eating my blueberries frozen for a nice refreshing but, but option to defrost them first if desired.
