Ingredients for probiotic drink:

  • 1oo ml homemade milk kefir
  • 1 tsp honey or 1/2 ripe banana
  • fruit
  • spices according to taste (vanilla, cinnamon, Christmas spice mix)

Add any fruit that the children like, add the ripe banana and/or spices; blend. Serve the probiotic drink to the children the moment it is prepared – in this way it will contain the highest levels of nutrients, probiotics and vitamins. If you store the drink in a sealed glass in the refrigerator, it will still make an excellent snack in a few hours or even on the next day. 

Second ferment milk kefir

A second fermentation will take place while your drink is stored in the refrigerator for about 24 hrs. You kefir will be-come even tastier and contain more vitamin B and folic acid. Also, calcium and magnesium compounds in kefir will transform, become easily digested and the body will benefit fully from these as well as from other nutrients. 

We advise you not to store your kefir with fruits for more than 24 hours, since a third fermentation might occur and turn the fruit sugars into alcohol. If you want to prepare a whole week’s supply of probiotic drinks, we advise you to store only kefir in sealed glasses and add fruits and “sweeteners” as you go.
