In this article, you will learn what kefir milk is, what the benefits are, and how to make it yourself at home.
What is Kefir Milk?
It’s a drink made with fermented milk and kefir grains. It is usually fermented at room temperature for around 24 hours. The grains culture the milk and infuse it with healthy organisms during the fermentation process. The result is a drink similar to yogurt that offers a numerous amount of benefits. It is a great addition to your diet.

Make it yourself
Steps to get the best kefir milk:
Please avoid any contact with metal; it can weaken your kefir grains and change the flavor.
1 Glass jar with a lid
1 Wooden spoon (not metal)
1. Pour Kefir grains and milk in the glass container
A. Stir the kefir grains with your wooden spoon. The milk can be cold or room temperature.
B. Cover the jar with something that will allow your kefir to breath; it can be a dishcloth or paper towel. If you don’t have a cloth don’t panic, just place the lid on top of your jar without completely closing it to allow some oxygen in.
2. Let it ferment for 24 hours
A. Store the jar at room temperature.
B. Make sure it’s stored away from direct sunlight. A warm and dark place is perfect.
C. After your kefir has been fermented for 24 hours, it should look similar to the one in the picture.
3. Strain your kefir grains
A. Place a strainer over the glass container you will use to store your kefir milk.
B. Catch the kefir grains in the strainer like the picture shows while filling the jar with the fermented milk.
C. Transfer the grains to fresh milk and repeat the whole fermentation process again.
4. Store your kefir milk in the fridge.
Put the fermented milk in your fridge so it will be ready for use. We prefer drinking it after it has been 12 hours in the fridge.
Now you are ready to make your favorite smoothie with kefir milk!
Adding kefir milk to your diet will help you have better digestion, and if you want to completely renew yourself why not get a colonic? It will help you enhance your new healthy lifestyle!
If you at one point hesitated to get a colonic, schedule a consultation with Zoli to visualize the results possible.
