The real tool that brings kefir to life is a smoothie maker. Adding fruit & whisking it up is like making nectar! Especially if you add honey as I do. Mine this morning was made with rolled oats (soaked overnight in the kefir) a banana, four small beetroots, two apples & half a glass of kombucha and a teaspoon of honey. It's amazing what you can come up with! I use a whole pint of milk for my kefir mix - the resultant quantity lasts all day.

At first I misread your post BG and thought it read add whisky, that would get you going in the morning lol(1)  My favourite  morning smoothie is banana with a dash of honey, think I'm getting addicted!!

just a couple of quick questions is google right in saying the milk once drained can keep for a long long time in the fridge. Also is it ok to add to the milk stored in the fridge for storage.
Makes a great smoothie though I think a pint was bit much yesterday. I didn't have to peddle the bike today and at one point thought I might have to get in the fast lane  chkl:-]

Mines seems to be working great so far and the wife likes it as well but only in the smoothy form with strawberries, banana and some honey. Does it matter, nope, she seems to love it  ThU32:-)  lol(1)

Mine seems to be working great too - ON ME! Tommo wasn't kidding when he said it keeps him going & gives him energy.

I'm definately feeling the benefit when it comes to combating tiredness after working on the lottie.

I also do a smoothie in the morning that contains a handful of rolled oats that's been left to soak in the kefir overnight. It's then liquidized with fruit and a bit of honey - not just delicious but energy boosting. I find a pint of kefir treated milk makes 2 pints of smoothie so it's a pint in the morning and a pint at night. Fantastic for the body I recon - especially when coupled to the kombucha, which often gets added to the smoothie in the morning.  ThU:-)

We'll I'm delighted that you have all embraced the wonderful stuff so well and that you are feeling the benefits. Keep it up. I know that we all suffer colds and other ailments from time to time but I have noticed that since sticking to a regime of super smoothie in the morning followed by a pint of Kombucha with my lunch I seem to shrug off these ailment very easily and also seem to go several months without getting anything.

For all of you who are smoothie making with your kefir I really do recommend soaking a tablespoon of oats overnight, as mentioned by BG, in the strained kefir milk...and....also a good teaspoon of buckwheat flour. Not only does it cancel out the phytates in the oats but it, more importantly, gives you all 8 of our essential amino acids. Besides it also makes the smoothie lovely rich and creamy.

Well I'm impressed anyway Tommo. Like all things there's a ramp up period for any healthy regime - it doesn't happen overnight, but if it's kept up over a prolonged period there are definately benefits that you can observe - both with kefir & kombucha. I'm certainly glad I discovered kefir. These things don't stand the test of time unless they are genuine, both kefir & kombucha have been around for a few thousand years, so they have good credentials!
