When combined with the natural sweetness of ripe fruit, kefir is great on its own or added to a variety of recipes.
Kefir is typically made from cow’s milk, but it is not uncommon to find sheep or goat kefir. The animal’s milk is fermented with a combination of lactic acid, bacteria and yeast.
The consistency is similar to a thin yogurt. The drink can be flavored with fruits like strawberry, mango, banana or peach. Kefir can be consumed on its own, mixed into smoothies, shakes or bowls, and can even be substituted for buttermilk in baking recipes for added nutrition!
