5 ways to use kefir: very berry kefir smoothie & elderflower kefir cocktail

I love making my own kefir at home - and love seeing my kefir grains going to new homes too! There are so many delicious ways you can enjoy it too, so time to get experimenting (especially if you're not quite there with the taste yet - just like wine, you'll come to love it)

Make this all the time- mixing up the fruit and adding ground flaxseed and sometimes oats if I want something more substantial

I am an adid fan of milk kefir and have it every morning with milled linseed and oat bran. I need to obtain some water grains. Has anyone on here (uk) any spare they could pass on? Love your recipes.
