Cooking with Kefir

Oatmeal with Kefir and FruitI recently bought a few different types of kefir and brought them into my kitchen. Was it possible to find tasty ways to serve this healthful dairy drink?

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.

Kefir SmoothieYou 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.
