Keifer Drinks - Favorite Recipes
A Delicious Morning Drink To Start Your Day Out Right: A Secret Health Drink of Ancient Cultures
A delicious, traditional morning drink in many countries such as India is lassi, a simple drink made with fresh yogurt, water and spices. Often fruit may be blended in, such as one of India’s national favorites, mango lassi. This favored drink is so common you can order it in almost any restaurant in India.
This same drink can be made with homemade keifer, instead of yogurt. Keifer is preferred since its unique Bulgarian bacterial culture is able to more completely digest the lactose in the milk. (Lactose is indigestible by most Afro-Americans and many other nationalities.) Most lactose-intolerant individuals are able to easily digest fresh keifer. In addition, the keifer molecules are much smaller and therefore, easier to absorb. Keifer also provides large amounts of natural highly active, probiotic “good” bacteria for the intestines – an important nutrient for daily immune protection in today’s infection-rampant society.
Quick and Easy
You can easily and quickly make keifer drinks or shakes (only takes just a couple of minutes) – and you can make unlimited variations – use your imagination!
Keifer drinks can be made with a sweet taste or with a salty (non-sweet) taste. Add fruit for a sweet taste or add sea salt and spices for a non-sweet drink (a more common version in Persian countries).
Keifer drinks provide highly absorbable calcium, highly absorbable protein, excellent amounts of probiotic bacteria and are famous for helping to protect the body’s bones, teeth and gums and to invigorate the body’s overall health. Keifer drinks help keep the body’s temperature cool and well-adjusted in hot weather and strong in cold weather. Keifer drinks are excellent for children as well as adults. They can be a “meal in themselves” in the morning. Keifer drinks are especially recommended for the elderly because their nutrients are so easy to absorb and help prevent muscle wasting. You can also use the Keifer drink in place of regular milk to use over cereal (hot or cold). (Note: avoid most commercial milk – typically high in toxic pesticides and artificial hormones).
Make Your Own Keifer
It is essential that you make your own keifer (or yogurt) for use in keifer drinks. It is fun and easy to make your own keifer. Be sure to use organic, nontoxic milk. Request our Keifer Kit or obtain a fresh yogurt-like culture (called laban) from a local middle eastern restaurant that makes fresh fermented milk drinks (called Aryan). Ask for a sample without salt. The key to making great fermented drinks is a good quality, fresh, live culture.
It’s also much cheaper to make your own keifer than buying commercial, premade sources. You can make a big batch of homemade keifer and keep it in the refrigerator, using a portion at a time. One batch is good for about 10 to 14 days (in average refrigerator cold temperatures). When your supply gets low, just make another batch. Children love lassi drinks for snacks or for extra energy when tired. Lassi drinks are also easy to transport (just place in a glass jar with a screw-top lid).
Warning: Avoid using store-bought keifer or yogurt (even “health food” varieties). Research shows that most, if not all, of these products have been pasteurized (highly heated) before being sent to market. This means that usually NO beneficial bacteria are present (the heat has killed them). It ranks as a dead, lifeless product.
In addition, many have been made from commercial milk (high in pus cells, pesticides and artificial hormones) and typically, toxic chemicals have often been added such as sucrose, fructose, corn syrup, “natural flavors” (a deceptive name for the neurotoxic chemical, MSG - monosodium glutamate), etc.
