Coconut Kefir Yogurt

Coconut Kefir Yogurt

This is an everyday staple for me.  It is gloriously delicious (if you like coconut) and smooth and thick as greek yogurt.  I use milk kefir grains to culture coconut milk (always BPA free, either Aroy-D or Whole Foods 365 as they work best).  It is fantastic by itself or sprinkled with a little superfood blend like forever beautiful. I’ll sometimes have it with sprouted pumpkin seeds part of the month and tahini the other part, according to seed cycling practices (for balancing hormones) and like to have it with a bit of moon balance as well.  Sometimes with some lily’s chocolate chips and frozen raspberries.  It boasts some powerful probiotics, which we all need right now with Coronavirus out to attack the guts and lungs.  And it’s yummy.  Did I mention it’s yummy?
