To make milk kefir, you will need to have the following ingredients:
* 1 teaspoon of kefir grains – You can purchase the kefir grains online at a reputable company or individual.
* 1 Cup of milk
You will need to add one teaspoon of the grains to the cup of milk and cover the jar/glass. Place it in a dark place for twenty-four hours to allow the grains to do its magic. During this time, the bacteria so that are in the kefir grains will work with the milk to turn it into fermented milk but not reaching the stage of spoiling. Once it’s done, the kefir will turn the milk into a thick buttermilk consistency and ultimately have a tangy taste to it, resembling the taste of yogurt.
Once you have completed the milk kefir recipe, you are ready to add Flavoring to your drink.
Prepare the cantaloupe
You may want to use a small cantaloupe so you don't have a lot of extra that you can't do anything with. If you do find yourself with extra cantaloupe, stick it in the freezer for another day. To prepare the cantaloupe, you will want to peel it, remove the seeds, and then slice it into manageable slices. Finally, dice the slices you will be using in your milk kefir.
