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!

Yes you can. There have been studies on if the kefir stays alive after being frozen and it does :) The good benefits of kefir still work in smoothies.
