A refreshing summertime smoothie with a healthy take on a traditional pool side "pina colada" that is digestive-friendly. Lets start with Kefir, a Turkish word which means "good feeling" is a probiotic rich food with incredible medicinal benefits including supporting our immune system. Then, through in some pineapple that contains bromelain, an enzyme that may help to treat indigestion–we are feeling good. Added bonus of coconut water to help keep us hydrated is a perfect pool side option.

Zest and juice of 1 lime
