This is a really fun way to get great nutrients into your family! You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make yogurt, kefir, and buttermilk. I encourage you to begin the simple routine of making these, feeding them to your family, and using them for baked goods. Here are questions I hear often:
Why make cultured dairy products?
Because they are wonderful for your digestion! These are natural probiotics that aid in healing your gut and keeping it healthy.
What is Kefir anyway?
It’s much like a drinkable yogurt. We love it in smoothies!
What if I don’t like to eat yogurt?
How do you make smoothies?
I pour yogurt or kefir into my blender and toss in some fresh spinach or other greens. Once I blend those together, I add frozen fruit. (Strawberries and peaches together is always a hit at our house. We also love these Pineapple Mango Smoothies.) I usually also include a little bit of real maple syrup and a drop of vanilla extract.
What if I can’t have dairy? Can I make these with other types of milk?
Yep! Not only do these cultures work with cow milk, goat milk, and raw milk – they also work with coconut milk and rice milk.
Here are my tutorials on how to make each of these products:
