The short answer is yes.
There are lots of fun ways to cook with kefir. One of my favorites is to pour a cup of kefir over a bowl of old-fashioned oatmeal and top the whole shebang with fresh berries. The kefir provides a rich, sour flavor that livens up this old breakfast favorite. It also meshes well with sweet, ripe berries and other fruits. I especially like it with peaches.
You can also make a smoothie with kefir by pouring it into a blender with berries. Use about 2 parts kefir to 1 part fruit. Half a cup to a full cup of kefir is plenty for a serving, since this makes a very rich and thick smoothie with a hint of sourness.
The depth and complexity of flavor you can get by adding kefir to a simple smoothie is quite remarkable
One last way to cook with kefir is to make a delicious fruit platter and place the cream or liquid kefir in the center, so that it can be used to top the fruit.
