Super [tasty] Drink

Why didn’t you guys tell me Kefir is, like, the best dairy product out there?!

This past weekend I picked up a bottle of Helios kefir since I’d had a coupon for it for quite some time now. I’ve always heard it touted as a probiotic super drink, but for some reason was never inclined to try it myself.

What I didn’t realize was that it also tastes amazing! I’m not sure about plain, but this raspberry flavor is sweet and tangy (the good kind) and straight up addictive.

I’ve been enjoying it straight up, as a sub for milk with cereal, and as a dipper for crack wheat thins.

This morning’s breakfast starred what else – but Kefir! Since I’m still on a kick with my cottage cheese and yogurt bowls, I incorporated it into the mix:

cottage cheese, GY, Kefir, banana, chia seeds, almond meal.

I chopped up a banana at the end, and despite its bland looks, it tasted fantastic!

This morning has already been a busy one. Starting at 5:30, I’ve already trained three clients. Usually business is slow around the holidays, but fortunately it doesn’t seem to be the case this year! Open-mouthed smile

I’m skipping my power yoga class this morning. I’m able to go, but it’s a little of a hassle to pack my office bag and go right after clients. I think I’ll go upstairs and put in my MTV power yoga DVD to get my om on.

Happy Wednesday Open-mouthed smile

Have you tried kefir before? I’m hooked!!

  1. I’ve heard good things about Kefir but haven’t tried it yet… raspberry sounds good!

  2. Nope never tried it. But I might pick some up this weekend now if I see it.

  3. I keep seeing it in the grocery store but haven’t picked it up yet. The idea of drinking yogurt kind of grossed me out but now you’ve convinced me I need to try it!

  4. My aunt introduced me to Kefir and I am in love with it!! :)

  5. I’ve heard of Kefir and am totally curious about trying it, mostly because it always stares me in the face when I’m at the grocery store. Sounds like it would also be great in a berry smoothie in stead of milk since it’s a thicker consistency.

  6. Never had Kefir…is it like tangy?

  7. I’ve tried Starfruit- which is Lifeway’s frozen kefir. Obviously I do original flavor being as how I don’t like fruit and all, but it was quite delicious!

  8. Maybe business is less slower b/c of all these awesome bloggers who inspire people to stay active! :D Hehehe.

    And I know, Kefir is amaaajeeengg!! I just don’t get it often since I’m the only one who consumes it, and it takes a long time to eat it when I already have G.yogurt, cottage cheese, almond milk, all these things to consume haha. You know what I mean? Have a great day Paige!!

  9. My nephew used to be OBSESSED with Kefir. My sister gives it to them a ton when she doesn’t have time to make them a smoothie as a snack. I haven’t had the plain kind, either, but the berry flavors are so good!

  10. I found coconut milk kefir last summer and LOVED it, but I’ve never tried the dairy version.

  11. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was entirely right. This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
