Ingredients for  MILK KEFIR

Yield: 3-4 cups
Full Cream Milk
3-4 cups
Milk Kefir Grains
1-2 tablespoons


1.  Place milk kefir grains into a litre (quart) jar and add milk (milk can be warmed to room temperature if you like - not required - but not hot).

2.  Cover jar with cloth (allows it to breathe but prevents contamination). Culture for 24-48 hours. The longer you culture/ferment, the thicker and sourer the milk kefir will be.

3.  Strain milk kefir through a plastic colander/sieve into bottles and refrigerate kefir drink for up to 3-4 weeks. Start a new bath of kefir!



Yield: 1 serve
1/2 – 1 cup (dairy or dairy-free)
1/2 cup
1/2 cup
Milk Kefir
1/4 cup
2 tablespoons
Protein Powder
1/2 scoop (optional)
Ice Cubes


1.  Place milk, fruit, kefir, yoghurt, protein powder (if using) and ice cubes into a blender.

2.  Blend until smooth. Strain to remove seeds if desired. Serve chilled.


NOTE: Milk kefir can be bought from your local store or made at home using milk kefir grains (available online, from health food stores or from someone who makes kefir at home).
