If you've ever had goat's kefir, the much hailed wonder food, you will know it tastes like milk that's been sat in Caribbean sunshine for about 3 weeks and then maybe the goat has added it's own extra ingredient too whilst you weren't looking.
I can just about neck a glass neat whilst imitating a champion gurner and that's what I was doing daily when I was working on getting my gut back in to good health following a spree of unwelcome antibiotics last year. The antibiotics also left me the gift of rosacea - thank you very much!
Goat's kefir is one of the most potent probiotics in the universe and can help repopulate your gut with all the good stuff it needs to keep your immune system strong. And goats milk is much easier to digest than cow juice. All round good for you. Forward thinking dermatologists highly recommend it for keeping your skin glowing. And I certainly felt it made a significant impact towards clearing rosacea.
After my Dad was rattling from a plethora of antibiotics following his stroke I ordered him two courses of Goat's kefir. We needed to get Dad's gut back in to good health and rebuild his immunity. Except Dad hated the kefir, even blended with berries or bananas - he point blank refused to drink it. My Mum packed 12 pints of it in a dusty old carrier bag and sent me off home with it all.
I must confess, I didn't want to drink any more of it either, not neat anyway.
So here's my take on a kefir milkshake, totally palatable, even tasty, jam packed full of goodness and right now after drinking it I almost feel I am wearing a nun's habit, it's that virtuous. Do your body a seriously good favour and make this.
Seriously good for you berry and kefir milkshake
1/3 pint goat's kefir
handful of berries (I use raspberries and blueberries)
2 tablespoons of drinking oats (try Rude Health drinking oats)
Splash of maple syrup or other natural sweetener (not honey though as it meddles with the probiotics)
Stick it all in a blender, whizz it up and enjoy!
