Easy Kefir Sour Cream

I don’t recommend using kefir grains in heavy cream. You can use them occasionally, but after a couple of batches the jar will become yeasty and the grains will struggle. However Easy Kefir is a GREAT way to make this delicious kefir cream that can be used for so many things!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 packet Easy Kefir

Instructions

  • Add your heavy whipping cream, milk and easy kefir to a mason jar and whisk together.
  • Allow to ferment 18-24 hours. Until the cream has thickened and is tart.
  • Once finished, refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. (It will get more sour over time)
  • You can take 1/4 cup of this mixture to make another batch of Easy Kefir Cream if desired.
  • Note: If you want a firmer sour cream, you can strain your Easy Kefir Cream in a strainer with a coffee filter (like you would for kefir cheese) for a few hours. Allow it to strain until it is the firmness you desire.

Notes

You can use this cream to make butter or ice cream, or you can pour into a cold latte!
