I've been craving ice cream lately, and that is a major "no" on the Candida cleanse. So, I froze some blueberries (the only fruit that we are really allowed to eat on this diet).
- One pint frozen blueberries
- One cup Kefir
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- Sprinkle of Stevia
Put it in a VitaMix and give it full power. You can eat it with a spoon or put it in a Popsicle tray and freeze it. So delicious, so nutritious.
What is Kefir?One dairy product that not only offers a wide range of vitamins and minerals, but also provides a variety of probiotic organisms and powerful healing qualities, is kefir (pronounced /kəˈfɪər/ kə-FEER).The word "kefir" is derived from the Turkish word "keif", which literally translates to the "good feeling" one has after drinking it.
Kefir is a fermented milk product that originated centuries ago in the Caucasus mountains, and is now enjoyed by many different cultures worldwide, particularly in Europe and Asia. It can be made from the milk of any ruminant animal, such as a cow, goat, or sheep. It is slightly sour and carbonated due to the fermentation activity of the symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast that make up the "grains" used to culture the milk (not actual grains, but a grain-like matrix of proteins, lipids, and sugars that feed the microbes). The various types of beneficial microbiota contained in kefir make it one of the most potent probiotic foods available.
