Since I first posted about kefir and all it’s benefits, I am happy to report that the grains are still growing, and we are all alive (not poisoned) and well. We’ve shared with many friends, family and strangers who want to feel better.
For nearly two years, it’s been our night-time ritual, concocting smoothies with an assortment of frozen fruit.
We make eight cups a night, enough for the six of us with leftovers.
Our favourite is frozen strawberries sweetened with brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract.
I have suffered from hay fever every August since I was a kid, but not this year…nor last. Coincidence or kefir?
In my backyard, I can hear my neighbour down below sneezing her head off.
Maybe I should introduce myself and bring her some kefir grains?
“Hi neighbour, you don’t know me, but why don’t you leave this milk on the counter overnight, and drink it?
You’ll be cured of your allergies!”
This is Charlie, our latest addition. I used to be allergic to cats too, but now we have three!
