Paleo Smoothie for the Taste Conscious- Amasi versus Kefir



I have been using Kefir for quite some time in my Paleo Smoothies, and I love it for its health giving properties of super nutrition and the massive amount of probiotics it provides!  In fact, I use probably a cup and 1/2 or so in each smoothie, since I make my own from raw milk and have a lot on hand.  

I love it!   

However, I realize it has quite a tart sort of taste that not everyone appreciates!  Then, I discovered Amasi, a type of fermented beverage that is very similar to kefir in it's probiotic nutritional benefits of helping you to burn fat, improve digestion, and improve your immune system.  In addition, it tastes fantastic!

So, here is my  Paleo Smoothie for the Taste Conscious:


Just use the above, but substitute Amasi for the Kefir!  

The taste is just amazing, and the benefits are equivalent to that of Kefir!  

If you have small children, or women in your family (women, being the "gatherers" in traditional cultures have a much more sweet sensitive palate)- they are much more concerned with taste than a hunter type of male, who generally prefers strong flavors to sweet; well then get them Amasi!

It tastes just amazing, and if anything covers up the "ick" factor of veggies and other Paleo Smoothie ingredients better than Amasi, I don't know what it is.

And, in addition, Amasi is as healthy in and of itself as any of those "icky" ingredients that it covers up- and tastes wonderful all by itself- A Paleo smoothie just by opening the bottle, really!

So, anyway, when I use Amasi in a smoothie, I use about 1/3 of the 16 ounce bottle, which is plenty- a little goes a long way!  So, it is very price competitive as well...

For convenience, for taste, for traveling, and for price: 

I recommend Amasi.
