What Is Kefir?

Kefir comes to us from the Middle East and was traditionally made with camel’s milk.

Today it’s commercially made using cow’s milk.

It’s fermented and has a tangy, yogurt-like taste and a texture that’s both smooth and slightly fizzy.

Kefir is sold in low-fat and fat-free varieties in cartons or bottles and should be kept refrigerated.

Recipe of the Day:  Very Berry Smoothie

You can mix and match your favorite berries in this smoothie to create a number of different flavors and textures.

If fresh berries aren’t available, use frozen berries – just eliminate the added ice.

1 cup low-fat plain kefir

1/2 cup blackberries

1/2 cup blueberries

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of ground cloves

6 ice cubes

*Use as many organic ingredients as possible.

Combine the kefir, berries, vanilla extract, cloves, and ice in a blender and puree until smooth.

Serve immediately.
