Kefir is typically made from cow’s milk that is fermented with kefir cultures.
It is similar in taste and texture to a drinkable plain yogurt with a bit of a tangy favour.
It is known for many health benefits including boosting the immune system, stimulating digestion, heartburn, protecting against the spread of harmful yeast overgrowth, lowering cholesterol, and guarding against cancer.
It is a powerful probiotic that helps beneficial bacteria to thrive in the body.

How to make your Milk Kefir
Step 1 - Place the Milk Kefir Grains into a glass jar
Step 2 - Add 1 cup of milk...start with around 200ml
Step 3 - Cover with paper towel and rubber band
Step 4 - Leave for 12-24 hours depending on how you like your kefir (This is a personal choice)
You can stir or swish a couple of times - but not necessary
Temperature changes will affect the fermentation time
You won’t kill the kefir, so don’t worry if you get it wrong
Just adjust the fermentation time for the next batch
Experiment until you get it to the consistency and taste that you like
Step 5 - Strain the milk with the kefir grains through a plastic sieve
The liquid that is strained off (Kefir) can be placed in the fridge or consumed straight away - I cut fruit into mine - add to smoothies or drizzle over salad
Step 6 - The kefir grains that are left in the sieve can be placed into a glass jar and you can start again from step one
