Move over smoothies, this is my new favorite way to eat kefir.
I preach about fermented foods all the time, but I know it can sometimes be hard to find practical ways to fit them into your day. I home-make my own kefir (not as hard as it sounds), so I always have lots on hand and I love to experiment with new ways to eat and love it. This one is too good not to share! So here you go, friends. Enjoy!
***Note: If you're wondering, "What's the deal with kefir anyway?" --let me tell you about it. Kefir is an amazing source of probiotics that, like yogurt, has been around for a very, very long time. It's sometimes called the "champagne of dairy" because of the bubbly, drinkable texture. It's a great source of Lactobacillus bacteria, which are one of the best-studied probiotics for gut health and mental health, as well as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is a probiotic yeast. Kefir has been shown in some studies to have benefits such as reducing constipation, reducing bloating, and improving mood--just to name a few.
