If I use coconut oil, coconut milk/cream mixed in a smoothie with kefir, does the anti-fungal, anti-microbial properties negate or kill the probiotics in the kefir? Should I take these seperately? My kids and wife like smoothies, but my wife would probably not drink kefir on its own. Putting it in a smoothie would be an easy way to incorporate into theirs and my daily routine, (albeit a sneaky way).
There are lots of recipes for coconut milk kefir, including this one at Mark's Daily Apple. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/homemade-coconut-milk-kefir/#axzz1vEczNRTa
Since you can actually make kefir using coconut milk, I'm guessing just mixing milk kefir with coconut kefir is no problem!
Well since it's been awhile since i've asked this question and no one seems to be able to answer it, I have decided I will just not add any coconut oil/milk/cream to my smoothies until I can get a definative answer.
