We all know that yogurt is good for you because of the beneficial bacteria. Well, kefir has even more! It has all different kinds of beneficial bacteria and good-guy yeasts. You can buy it in milk, but for those of us that can’t do dairy, there’s water kefir. It’s an acquired taste. A bit like a flat Fresca. I drink it plain, but the kids like it better in fruit juice. But, it’s so good for your body that it’s worth whatever you need to do to make it palatable.
1. Get kefir grains. Once they’ve been in water for a while, they look like crushed ice.
2. Place grains the bottom of a clean quart mason jar with 3+ cups of boiled and cooled (to room temp) tap water. Boiled to get the chlorine out, unfiltered to keep the minerals in that kefir cultures need. Add 2 TBS of sugar.
3. Slice one inch of banana and add to jar.
4. Loosely cover and place in cupboard for 48 hours. Chill and enjoy!
P.S. You can totally eat the bananas, if you like.
