Lifeway Kefir + Ice = Heaven

Last night I opened up my strawberry Kefir by Lifeway and stared in the bottle. Kefir is not the most common item in the USA. We typically have yogurt or milk—not an in between. I took a smell of it though and I could not wait to try it! I took a little sip and my tastebuds were jumping up and down. It was so good. A little tart like yogurt but sweet, creamy and a perfect strawberry flavor. I thought wow this is better than ice cream! Oh wait—this could be a healthy ice cream in no time. So I got out my blender and did this:

1 cup Lifeway Strawberry Kefir
½ cup water
A few packets of sweetner
Dash of Xanthan Gum (thickener optional)
Ice Cubes
Blend until smooth and enjoy!

Even yogurt haters aka crazy people would love this. It is my new “thing”!
Lifeway is really the only brand of Kefir that I ever see—and for good reason. Their blend is amazing. They have a bunch of flavors that I am dying to try—peach, blueberry, mixed berry etc… Imagine the ice cream possibilities. Tomorrow though my kefir will be on top of my cereal! I could make overnight oats with it… WOW!
