1-2 tbsp fresh grated ginger (or 1/2 tsp ground)
3/4 tsp ground turmeric (1tbsp fresh grated)
1 cup loose spinach
1/2 cup first ferment water kefir
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
5 chunks frozen pineapple
Optional: add protein powder of your choice
For thickness add 1 cup ice.
Make the first ferment water kefir and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
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.
