Kefir, Kefir, I love Kefir!

I have a new obsession in my life…kefir. Having read many articles, seen many recipes and heard great things about this product I decided to try it. My first hurdle was to locate it. I eventually found a supermarket that stocked it – after many, ‘What’s that?’ responses to my queries around which aisle it was in.

What is Kefir?

Kefir is a cultured, creamy product made from any type of milk. It is made from gelatinous white or yellow particles called ‘grains’. These grains ferment the milk.

Why Kefir?

As well as beneficial bacteria and yeast, kefir contains minerals and essential amino acids that help the body with healing and maintenance functions. It is rich in vitamin B12, B1 and vitamin K.

I now ensure I drink kefir every day  – in smoothies or neat.

My next step is to locate ‘grains’ and start making kefir myself …

Mid – April I purchased some kefir grains – came by recorded delivery!

I now have Kevin the kefir grains working hard and providing me with a new batch of Kefir every 2 days.
