Coconut Water Kefir Smoothie

1.5 cups first ferment coconut water kefir
1/2 cup cucumber and/or 3-4 fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh spinach
Sprig of mint or basil
1 teaspoon honey
- Make your first ferment coconut water kefir.
- Strain the grains, and measure out 1/2 cup of first ferment for the smoothie recipe. First ferment can be kept in the fridge for up to 14 days, or you can move on to the second ferment to flavour and carbonate it.
