Five Ways to Use Milk Kefir

In addition to being an amazing probiotic beverage, kefir is also very versatile and can typically be substituted for milk, yogurt, or buttermilk in recipes.

 

Salad Dressing

Dairy kefir provides a wonderful tart base for your favorite creamy salad dressing.  If you have a favorite creamy salad dressing recipe that calls for yogurt as the base, simply substitute kefir.


Ice Cream

Not only is kefir ice cream a wonderful dessert, we've been known to eat it for breakfast too!


Soup

Whether it's a warm bowl of soup on a cool spring day or a bowl of cold soup on a hot summer afternoon, kefir makes a wonderful tangy base.

 

Smoothies

Using kefir as the base in your favorite smoothie recipe is an easy way to add a probiotic powerhouse. Kefir can generally be substituted in any smoothie recipe calling for a yogurt base.

 

Baking: Cakes, Breads and Muffins

Dairy kefir can generally be substituted for yogurt or buttermilk in your favorite baked goods. This is a great way to use up excess kefir.
