kefir cocktail

I have enjoyed getting back into making kefir.  When I first made kefir I used non dairy heavy coconut cream in the can from Trader Joe’s.  You can learn how by watching an easy video at Cultured Food Life.   When using non dairy milk you still must add about a quarter cup of whole milk in order to feed the kefir grains.


Orange Dreamsicle Kefir
This is my favorite kefir flavor. It is so easy to make and I sometimes just like to eat the orange pieces right out of the jar before blending. They are delicious fizzy oranges!
