Have you tried kefir before? Kefir is a cultured milk product that is similar to yogurt and has the same probiotic benefits of yogurt. It’s a bit sweeter than yogurt and slightly tart– the flavor is like a combination of yogurt and buttermilk. I’ve been on a kefir binge lately, my local super market carries different brands and types, both plain and flavored. The flavored versions are SO delicious but contain quite a lot of sugar, so lately, I’ve been buying the plain unsweetened kind and adding my own natural sweeteners. I also love adding granola for some texture. This stuff is seriously better than your typical parfait and if you’re looking to change up your breakfast routine, make this kefir bowl!
