I picked up some kefir at the store the other day for a taste test.
I want more “good bacteria” in my family’s life, and more fermented foods. Going on a hunch that my kids would NOT like kimchi…or sauerkraut…I tried the kefir first!
Kefir is a dairy product- kefir “grains” are added to milk and left to ferment and change the milk. The end product is thick like buttermilk, and tangy like yogurt. Honestly, it tasted EXACTLY like my homemade yogurt. I was hooked on the slightly sweet tang, but no one else in my family liked it. The husband gave me an “eh, it’s fine.” The five year old and two year old refused to try it, due to the consistency.
Since this product is pretty pricey at our store, and I can make yogurt easily at home that tastes the same, I probably won’t be purchasing this again, but it was fun to try! If we want a probiotic drink, I like to mix a bit of milk into my yogurt to thin it out.
