    Kefir is a great alternative to those who cannot have dairy.  With this recipe, you will be able to create a thick textured creamy substance that is good for you and can be combined with different flavors to make the perfect cup of goodness. This recipe uses the combination of vanilla and cinnamon. These two flavors go well with many different combinations.

    When making kefir, you will need the kefir grains which will transform the liquid milk into a nutritious creamy tangy texture within a short period of time, usually twenty-four hours. This process, on occasion can take up to forty-eight hours, depending on many factors. If you have stored the kefir grains in the refrigerator and then bring them back out to ferment, it may take a while before the kefir grains are active again. Another reason your kefir is not thickening up in a twenty-four hour period is because of the temperature. If it is not warm enough, the bacteria and yeast cannot be active.

    Even before flavor is added, kefir is a very nutrients drink. Kefir can provide more probiotics than what is found in some yogurts, contains antibacterial properties to help build the immune system, help fight against certain cancers, and improve the health of the digestive system, just to name a few.
