SCOBY Applesauce!

by

Maci was eating some homemade applesauce one day and thought . . . I could put a SCOBY in this. So, she did! It’s tart, it’s tangy and it's raw! You can’t tell whatsoever that you’re getting a bunch of insoluble fiber in your applesauce. And remember, apples are prebiotics, too, so you’re getting pro- and prebiotics to change your gut in a spectacular way!

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.
Cherries have many benefits and contain powerful antioxidants. They have cancer-preventive compounds, and they reduce the inflammation risk of gout and strokes. Combine cherries with kefir for a yummy treat. The addition of cocoa sends it over the top on my list of favorite smoothies. If you let it sit a few minutes your smoothie will separate into layers.

Macadamia Nut Kefir

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 uses the sugars and creates probiotics for you. You don’t get the sugar but instead you get lots of healthy bacteria. If it doesn’t have 8 grams of carbohydrates, then you can add 1 teaspoon of date paste or raw sugar per quart to give the bacteria food so it can make probiotics.

Rice Milk Kefir

by

Fermented rice provides great health benefits. The lactic acid bacteria break down the anti-nutritional factors in rice resulting in an improved bioavailability of micro-nutrients and minerals such as iron, potassium, and calcium by several thousand percentage points. For example, after 12 hours of fermentation of 100 grams of rice, the availability of iron changed from 3.4 mg to 73.91mg (an increase of 2073%). The university also found that fermenting rice for as low as 3 hours significantly increases the bio-availability of nutrients.

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.

Coconut Kefir Eggnog

by

This tastes best to drink right away. You can store in the fridge and it will last about a week before it gets really sour and starts to separate.
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.
