Foolproof Kefir


Forget all the reason it won't work.and-5 copy 2I love kefir grains, but I didn’t start my journey making kefir using kefir grains. I started with the powder kefir and was very glad I did. I was pretty much a wreck at that time in my life and I needed something easy and foolproof or it wasn’t going to happen. Making kefir with powder packages was super easy and it really changed me, convincing me that kefir was something I needed daily in my life. I then moved on to using live kefir grains, and they became family pets in my household. We’ve been taking care of them for over a decade. I love kefir grains because you get more strains of beneficial bacteria (as compared with the powder packages that typically have fewer strains) and I wanted the most bang for my buck. However, this has all changed with the new product Easy Kefir.

easy kefir copyIt is made from kefir grains that have been freeze dried and ground into a powder. You’ll receive the benefits of kefir grains with the easiest way to make kefir you can imagine. Does this mean I don’t love kefir grains? Absolutely not. I still love them and always will, but for those of you who are busy and worried about taking care of kefir grains, this is so Easy, it’s almost foolproof. You will get the many bacteria in kefir grains instead of just a few in other powder forms of kefir.  With its numerous beneficial strains of organisms, kefir is more potent than yogurt. Since Easy Kefir is a powder made with freeze-dried grains, you receive numerous strains and probiotics containing over 3 billion live bacteria.

Easy Kefir makes non-dairy kefir too!

Another wonderful thing about Easy Kefir is that it works on non-dairy kefir too. I’ve been making non-dairy kefir with Easy Kefir all summer and I love how easy and yummy it is. When making non-dairy kefir, you just need to be sure the non-dairy milk has at least 8 grams of carbohydrates to give the bacteria something to eat. It utilizes the carbs and produces probiotics for you. You don’t get the carbs, but instead you get lots of healthy bacteria. If it doesn’t have 8 grams of carbohydrates, then you can check out this blog to feed your kefir (Your Kefir Wants a Date) just what it needs to keep it going strong. So if you are scared about making kefir, then this is the place to start. And it’s so EASY!

Easy kefir productEasy Kefir: You get four packages and an eight-page color booklet with step-by-step instructions. Each package will make seven gallons of kefir for a total of twenty-eight gallons. You can take a small amount from the first batch you make and use this to make more kefir, again and again. Check out this link. Scroll down to the bottom of the page find the slider “How to make kefir using Easy Kefir powder packets”. I hope this will help you if you’re afraid to try kefir. You can do it! I promise – this is sooo Easy Peasy!

Prebio Plus food for your bacteria!

We have another new product called Prebio Plus that your gut, kefir, and cultured vegetables will love. We designed it that way! If you’re trying to get healthy, then probiotic foods can make a world of difference; but adding a prebiotic, which is food for your bacteria, makes the good bacteria grow like crazy and supercharges your probiotics.

Prebiotics reside in all kinds of fruits and vegetables

Prebiotics are just as important as probiotics, but you should use them together. Prebiotics reside in all kinds of fruits, vegetables, some nuts, and other foods. We have found some of the strongest sources of prebiotics and placed them in an easy to use powder form. Without prebiotics your good bacteria never grow like they should. Prebiotics essentially serve as fertilizer for the bacteria in your colon. Eating cultured probiotic foods will aid the colonies of bacteria and adding prebiotics makes these colonies grow and crowd out pathogens, reestablishing the balance of good bacteria in strong numbers.  This can strengthen your immune system to resist infections and viruses, remove toxins, and a host of other things your bacteria are designed to do. But if you don’t have the healthy strains of good bacteria from cultured foods along with the prebiotics to make them grow, your flora can’t change into what it needs to be.

Prebio Plus has three prebiotics!

Prebio Plus is food for your bacteria. I love, love this product and so does my kefir and my cultured veggies. Prebio Plus has three different strains of prebiotics making it three times as effective as other prebiotics on the market today.

prebio plus usagePrebio Plus is easy to use:

Add Prebio Plus – to any food or beverage, hot or cold.

Add Prebio Plus – to kefir or cultured veggies while they’re culturing, or even after they’re done for an extra boost of probiotics to your cultures.

Add Prebio Plus to your kefir to make it super creamy or even after it has over separated and it helps it to become creamier again.

Add Prebio Plus – to salad dressings or condiments such as kombucha mayo or kefir cheese for an added probiotic boost.

Add Prebio Plus – to your morning coffee or tea to start your inner bacteria off to a running start at the beginning of the day.

Add Prebio Plus – to baked goods and sprinkle it on salads or even toast and jam.

5 Responses to "Foolproof Kefir"
  1. how will I know if the culture is still active when making batches from the previous first quart? Newbie here;o)

  2. Donna, I appreciate your sincerity to encourage others to go into cultured foods and drinks. In fact it was after I watched you on YouTube making kombucha that I dared try making it.
    I would love to use this new product for making nondairy kefir. Tried coconut milk kefir but there is the inconvenience of feeding the grains in milk now and then. Whereas with Easy Kefir no such worries.

  3. I am confused about how much kefir this will make. This post says 7 gallons, but the packages description says 16 servings, and it sounds like a serving is 1 cup. So, my question is, which one is correct?

    • Here are more detailed instructions that can help you more.

      Once you’ve made your first batch (quart) of kefir, you can take a portion of this to make more kefir, so don’t drink all of it! You will take a portion of this kefir and add it to new milk, culture it again, and you can do this seven times and in larger amounts and perhaps longer if you make it right away before you need another package.

      To make a quart: use 1/4 of a cup from the previous batch
      To make a 1/2 gallon: use 1/2 cup from the previous batch
      To make one gallon: use 1 cup from the previous batch

      Do not use more than recommended to make new batches of kefir. Bacteria likes room to grow, and adding to much will make it culture faster and cause it to be more sour.
