I used homemade, plain (unflavored) kefir to mimic the tangy qualities of the feta for this drink, while supplying some great digestive-supporting probiotics. Store-bought plain kefir would work just as well.
Blueberries are not traditionally part of the watermelon feta salad, but I like the addition of antioxidant-rich frozen blueberries to most of my smoothies, for the flavor, the fiber content, the nutritional benefits and for achieving the frozen texture without using ice, which can water down the taste... literally. Plus, it's blue. So, using this ingredient gives us a red, white and blue smoothie... at least before you blend it all together.
