Kefir is a brilliant prebiotic and fermented ingredient. So so yummy any time of the day. Great for breakfast too. Sugar free as well.



This recipe is inspired by attending a fermentation workshop with Trish Dent. Fermenting foods is a way of preserving foods but also a way of converting starches and sugars into lactic acid by Lactobacilli bacteria (good bacteria) and inhibiting bad bacteria.
