Ways of Enjoying Kefir

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP–Living in Natures Love Lifestyles insideawareness.com

 

This spring Kefir was added to the exploration of living foods.  This has been a beneficial pursuit and an enjoyable one as we become more familiar with it and find ways to use it.  This pro-biotic is proving to be a staple in a sustainable healthy lifestyle.

Second Ferment with Fresh Fruits

One way this Author refines the flavour of Kefir and makes it easier to digest is through a fresh fruit 2nd ferment.

Milk Replacement in Recipes

Another way to enjoy the increased benefits of Kefir is by using it as a milk replacement  in recipes.  This Author has enjoyed biscuits, pancakes, cottage cheese and more.

Fruit Leather

Exploring ways to make healthier snacks this Author has been experimenting with drying it with fruit into fruit leather.

Hair Conditioner

Creating a home-style hair conditioner with Kefir has had tremendous results.  It has increased the health of the scalp and shine and softness of this Authors hair and reduced the grey by restoring the natural colour. Those with lighter colours of hair will appreciate reading that Kefir also stripes the hair of any absorbed material so those with dyed hair may want to be cautious.  As a person with lighter coloured hair one becomes familiar with the fact that this hair absorbs small particles that can turn hair a greenish colour or make the appearance of grey yellowish.

  • Softens hair 
  • Restores natural colour reducing grey
  • Cleans pollutants out of hair
  • Cleans scalp (natural dandruff conditioner), increases hair regrowth

Facial and Neck Mask

Adding Kefir to home-made facial masks has had a nice result.  There is a noticeable tightening of the pores and skin with increased softness in this experience.

  • tightens skin & pores
  • softens skin to baby soft!

Kefir Bathing Treatment

Bathing Experience

Those who culture Kefir will know that there will be an abundance of it once started.  Having read the Cleopatra actually used Kefir (not milk) in her baths this author decided to be adventuresome and try it together with an English Daisy infused honey.  There was a noticeable difference in how the skin was  tightened and softened that took years off.  Especially important in the process of loosing weight!

  • Skin softener – shockingly baby soft!
