The Secret According to Kefir Ice Cream

Secrets and Kefir

Kefir Ice Cream

Somebody asked me the other day how I come up with recipes for cultured foods. Many times they come suddenly into my brain.  This will often make me miss my exits while driving on the highway because I am thinking about the specifics of how to make it. Another way they come is through a picture of food or a recipe I see that follows me around playing like a tape in my head, until I give it some attention.

One particular day I had found a recipe on the internet for kefir ice cream that used kefir cheese. It kept bugging me day and night, wondering what it could possibly taste like.

So I made myself some kefir cheese and then proceeded to make some ice cream with a large amount of kefir cheese as the base. Throwing different things in the blender haphazardly, I made up my own flavor. It was hands down the best ice cream I had ever made. It was super creamy and had that mouth feel of ice cream I had so been looking for. I became completely obsessed with kefir ice cream and spread my addiction to my friend Nancy, sharing my recipes and the secret of kefir cheese to make ice cream. She called me a week later and said, "What is going to happen to us if we keep having ice cream every day? We can't stop eating it." So, with hopes of keeping this dream alive, I made her a list of all the reasons to eat kefir ice cream every day.

  1. It was sugar-free since we used stevia.
  2. It was wonderfully healthy to consume kefir every day.
  3. The endorphins we were creating by being so happy would make the world a better place.
  4. Our children and husbands would think we were the coolest ever.
  5. We could just make it our lunch every day. It would be our secret.

Honestly, I can make kefir ice cream three times a week. I am way past addicted. I am in love.

Hopefully I can spread  this addiction to you.

The secret? Kefir cheese makes the best ice cream!

Coconut Kefir Ice Cream
Coconuts is one of the best sources of lauric acids, a protective type of fatty acid that can help with cholesterol and heart health. Lauric acid is also found in breast milk. In the body, lauric acid is converted to monolaurin, a molecule which has antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiprotozoan properties. Monolaurin destroys fungus, bacteria and virus at the molecular level in the body by attacking their lipid membranes, thus destroying them.This is a yummy kefir ice cream. The coconut milk makes it extra creamy. Don't forget to top this with shredded coconut or my Magic Chocolate Topping. It makes this an ideal dessert for parties or company.
Recipe
Kefir Coconut Fruit Soup
Mangoes and strawberries topped with Kefir Coconut Ice Cream. So, so good! Coconut milk makes wonderful ice cream and the fruity concoction in the bottom of the bowl makes for one of the best combos. I could eat this everyday and in the summertime I eat it often. Strawberries have more vitamin C than orange juice and mangoes also give you an impressive amount of Vitamin C and A. Did you know mangoes are in the same family of plants as pistachios and cashews? Kind of interesting don't you think?!

Recipe
Peanut Butter Kefir Ice Cream
You can substitute almond butter, cashew butter, or any nut butter for a great kefir ice cream. I use stevia in place of sugar in the recipe. Nuts and legumes are prebiotics, which is food for your bacteria to make it grow and multiply. These are considered some of the most satiating foods. Studies have found that people who eat nuts (tree nuts like cashews, almonds and pistachios, along with their legume pal, the peanut) live longer and healthier lives, with less risk of chronic ailments like heart disease, respiratory problems and Type 2 diabetes.

Popeye Kefir Ice Cream
Spinach is a superfood and one of my favorite foods to add to foods for some added health benefits. With nutrients that include folate, vitamin c, niacin, riboflavin, and potassium spinach is an incredible food that doesn’t change the flavor of the food you add it too. One of my favorite cartoons growing up was Popeye the Sailor and he always ate spinach for extra strength. I suggest you do the same! I love this ice cream maker because it has a compressor and is always ready to make me ice cream whenever I need it. Click Here to Purchase
