With the Mad Millie kefir kit you can have your own homemade supply of this probiotic yoghurt drink to enjoy whenever you like – and it takes just 24 hours to make. Kefir is a cultured, lightly fermented yoghurt drink that’s popular in the mountainous region between Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The name comes from a Turkish word, keyif, which means simply ‘feeling good’.
Kefir introduces a wealth of beneficial bacteria into your diet. It has slightly sharp, sour notes and a thinner consistency than traditional yoghurt. The fermentation process introduces a slight fizziness, too! Enjoy as a drink on its own, add to smoothies or pour over breakfast cereal instead of milk. It’s also great dolloped into Eastern European and Siberian soups, or used as an ingredient to make dips.
If you follow a lactose-free diet, you can use the kefir cultures with coconut water and even fruit juice to make a tangy, slightly fizzy drink. Kefir made from these ingredients is fantastic in mocktails, too. The Mad Millie kefir kit also comes with instructions on how to make kefir cheese. Run out of cultures? Top up with Mad Millie kefir culture sachets so you’re never far from your kefir fix.
