Kefir cheese makes yummy, fluffy pancakes. Although heat kills the probiotics, I added a blueberry kefir compote topping to add the probiotics back in. Kefir helps pancakes and doughs to rise much like a sourdough starter, and also makes for a nutrient-dense food that will sustain you all morning long.

Kefir Date Shake

by

Dates are packed with vitamins and minerals, but one of the most interesting things about dates is the presence of organic sulfur in them. This is a really hard element to find in a food source. Sulfur is incredibly important and is the third most abundant mineral in the body. Sulfur is essential for life and makes up vital amino acids used to create protein for cells, hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. It's necessary for insulin production and sulfur detoxifies at the cellular level. It also relieves pain and makes for beautiful skin and hair.
Molasses gives these bars their rich flavor. Molasses is a rich source of nutrients, and it contains a number of essential minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper, iron, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, and sodium. Blackstrap molasses is the type of molasses I use since it has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar.

You can add small orange slices to this dish after it is already prepared for extra flavor. I love it this way, but I would put oranges in everything if I lived in a perfect world. Orange is one of the happiest colors and flavors. I used frozen cranberries to make this dish, but you can use fresh too.
Fall never tasted so good! The tangerine hue, in butternut squash signifies its many nutrients. It's has very high levels of beta-carotene (which your body automatically converts to vitamin A) and a 1-cup serving, you get nearly half the recommended daily dose of antioxidant-rich vitamin C. If you haven't tried my wisdom kraut you're in for a treat. To find the Wisdom Kraut recipe, click on the words "Wisdom Kraut" in the ingredients below.

Pina Colada Kefir Smoothie

I love to top this with fresh coconut. Toasting the coconut is even more tasty, but I never do this. I'm always in a hurry and hungry and can hardly wait to eat this yummy smoothie. If you don't have coconut kefir, no worries. Use regular kefir and add some extra shredded coconut to the smoothie.

Raspberry Kefir

by

Researchers have found that raspberries contain a phytonutrient called rheosmin, or raspberry ketone. This can raise metabolism in our fat cells by increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production, thereby burning fat rather than storing it. Eat your raspberries!! You can add granola for an extra topping.

Chocolate Kefir Nuts

by

I love, love chocolate. Sometimes I think it is the magnesium that chocolate has in it that I crave and need. At least this is what I tell myself.
This does not work the same for store-bought kefir. It never really thickens right and remains runny. Homemade kefir is the way to go if you are making kefir cheese. You also get the added benefits of large colonies of beneficial bacteria that is in homemade versus commercial brands.
You can serve this dip with homemade potato chips. I cut thinly sliced potatoes and fry them in peanut oil till brown and crispy.

Pepperpot Soup

by

I made this for a friend who came to my house for lunch. After eating it, she declared that she could eat this soup every day for the rest of her life and never tire of it. This is a super easy soup and one you will love. The coconut gives it a rich taste and the sweet potatoes and vegetables will fill you up! Top with kefir cheese and kraut for probiotics, but wait till it's warm and not hot to keep from killing the probiotics.
