Question Kefir ideas!

I'm healing my kefir grains right now from the shipping! No one here even knows what it is, so no local cultures...lol. I've never had it, but my son has been on a lot of antibiotics in the last few months . I've been on them a tremendous amount in the last year too so we are due for some gut-healing! Suggestions for good kefir second ferment flavorings or other kefir recipes/tips and tricks? Thanks in advance!

Re: Kefir ideas!

Water or milk? With water kefir, we used to plop a few frozen berries in it. I also had frozen juice concentrate, and scrapped a small spoon, just enough to flavor it. I was burnt out on babying the kefir, because it requires daily maintenance, so it's been about a year for me.

Milk kefir. Seems easier than water kefir to me although I definitely want to try water kefir next!

Re: Kefir ideas!

I haven't tended to mine lately but I drink it plain. Mine is sour and I think it's the kind of milk I use. I don't mind it being sour but no one else will drink it and they are missing out!

My mom adds grapefruit juice, honey and an egg yoke to hers, and makes it into a smoothie. I haven't tried kefir myself......yet!

Re: Kefir ideas!

I prefer milk kefir with honey as it's usually too sour for me.

Re: Kefir ideas!

I use it in place of buttermilk in pancakes, biscuits, etc. We also blend in honey and berries. My 5 year old uses it on porridge, in place of milk. My 7 year old puts it on cold cereal. The 4 year old sneaks it straight.
