Drinking Kefir Milk

I believe that almost all the people in this world would like to be physically fit and healthy. Em I right? Today, I would like to introduce some healthy fermented called “kefir”. Out of curiosity I decide to  purchase some life way kefir in our local grocery store .

Life Way Kefir

As you can see, there are a lot kind of flavor from plain kefir to kefir smoothie mixed with fruits! I pretty sure the company is selling well, LOL! The taste was just like yogurt, I can’t even distinguish it.

As you can see in the packaging, they even highlight  the word “probiotic”, I really wonder what is probiotic. So I decide to research more about kefir, guess what? I did learn a lot of things about kefir, the most important one is – kefir is better than yogurt and both of them are consider to be a fermented milk! Wow!

Upon researching, I learned that I can also create my very own kefir drink. I just need to buy kefir grains and video course!

My 1st goal was to create a plain kefir, I was very nervous and excited. Luckily, it wasn’t that hard to make one. Then after, doing it several times, I store up my own kefir milk then mix it with some fruity to make my own kefir smoothie drink.

It was an awesome experience for me, I never imagine that it could be this simple.

For people who want to know more about kefir:

If you have time, I would highly recommend you to create your own kefir supply, it just as simple as 1,2 and 3! Cheers!
