Kefir Flegga & Aloe Vera smoothie

As opposed to cow’s milk which contains the allergenic protein “A1 casein” (a highly inflammatory protein for the human body), goat’s milk contains A2 casein, that makes it – protein wise – the closest milk to human breast milk, hypoallergenic and tolerated even by babies

Therefore it is always preferable to consume goat milk and goat dairy products, especially when they come from free animals who grazing on grass

So, always using our favorite 100% organic brand of dairy products, the award-winning and prestigious Greek Creamery “Flegga”. Today’s smoothie includes goat’s bio kefir with the addition of aloe vera, green grapes, green apple and spinach. Just add all ingredients into a blender (after freezing the grapes) and mix until velvety and creamy.

Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids and amino acids.

Green grapes , spinach & green apples are rich of vit A, B2, B6, E, C and K, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, copper, manganese, zinc, phosphorus.

    • Yes, it is an extremely nutrition product. But I always prefer the goat milk one, that makes the big difference because free of casein A1 and therefore hypoallegenic & tolerable even by babies. In this case the award-winning kefir by Flegga is alone a nature’s cure-all for health. Thank you for visiting me! Xristina

    • Thank you Victoria, try it with goat kefir. Aloe has no taste or smell. You won’t taste it in the smoothie. You will only feel the benefits. Thank you for visiting me🌸 Xristina
