Kefir Grains-What to do with all those spare grains that are lurking in your fridge.

If like me you regularly make water kefir no doubt you have run out of friends to give the spare grains too. Did you know you can eat them or feed them to your pets.  So instead of filling up your fridge with spare grains why not  dry them and eat them dried as a seasoning (crush them into powder and sprinkle on your food). The dried form is not as flavorful as dried milk kefir grains, but can make for an excellent home-made probiotic. Just dry your grains, throw them in a ninja/coffee bean grinder or food processor and you will have your own probiotic powder supplement!

Kefir is good for your health?

It is loaded with valuable enzymes, easily digestible sugars, beneficial acids, vitamins and minerals. Water kefir is also generally suitable for some diabetics (though personal discretion is advised). It also is a nice option if you are trying to avoid the caffeine present in kombucha, but still seeking a probiotic drink. Water kefir supplies your body with billions of healthy bacteria and yeast strains. Some store-bought probiotic foods or supplements can help, but they are not as potent, and do not contain the beneficial yeasts usually (just bacteria).

Here are some other ideas for using your water kefir grains 20180608_160007.jpg
