The probiotic health trend is having a massive moment right now and it’s moving away from those tablets you take with antibiotics, to drinkable or edible fermented foods like kimchi and kefir.
Next time you’re drinking a smoothie, add some probiotics to the mix: the lactic acid bacteria in the drink create an environment in your tum perfect for better absorption of nutrients. You can get your fix from Probyo, a range of live cultured drinks loaded with healthy gut bacteria, or kefir, a fermented milk drink made with kefir grains that’s been drunk for years in the Eurasia region.
We’ve rounded up two must-try recipes loaded with probiotics that’ll boost your immunity – and are totally delicious!

Spiced Apple Smoothie
Other than the fact that this smoothie is truly delicious, kefir’s been drunk for many years. That’s because it’s rich in amino acids, vitamins, and is alive with tummy-loving bacteria. One study even found that kefir has the ability to reduce lactose intolerance in adults.
