Adding kefir to your pesto

It's healthier and more economical when you make your food at home. This includes kefir. If you haven't yet made kefir, here's how to do it:

Water Kefir

Compared to the kefir you can buy in stores, the homemade beverage contains a much higher degree of kefir-specific active substances which are important for your health. Kefir water can have a slight fizz with a similar - but more subtle - flavour to kombucha...

 Milk Kefir

There is nothing quite like milk kefir – it really is a delicious drink. It closely resembles a yoghurt drink but is packed full of extra probiotics. Slightly tart tasting and creamy, some refer to kefir milk as the ‘champagne of milk’ and we couldn’t agree more!
