Thought I would write an update on the Kefir Milk Experiment . Each day, I have been following the same method for making the Kefir Milk, here is the post.
I started out having one tablespoon of milk each day - taking it slow, because of Lactose Intolerance. Then after a few days, I increased the amount to two tablespoons, a week later, I was having four tablespoons. Fingers crossed, so far so good.
Here is what strikes me so interesting. The Kefir milk does taste like Buttermilk - there is a definite sour, somewhat yeasty taste to it. When I first taste it, I get a hit of sour, not unpleasant at all. Then when I swallow the Kefir milk, I immediately want more. This tells me my body must really need this.
Thank the heavens I froze a lot of organic berries last summer. This Kefir Milk Berry Smoothie was surprisingly delicious. I was not sure what to expect in terms of flavor....smooth, extra creamy, I think I am addicted! To this recipe, I added 2/3 a cup of Kefir milk....this made 2 large glasses of berry smoothie....I drank the whole thing! I could not help myself it was that good.....we'll see what happens....
Frozen Organic Berries:
a big handful of Blueberries
a big handful and a half of Blackberries
4 Tblsp. Plain Organic Yogurt
2/3 cup Kefir Milk
a drizzle of honey
I let my frozen berries sit in a bowl for 30-40 minutes before blending.
Toss everything into your blender or food processor.
Blend well until smooth, pour into glasses...enjoy, so delicious!
