As as a vegan I have long wished for a non-dairy kefir, and now we have one, sweetened with stevia, non-GMO, organic, made with coconut water and much lower in calories than regular dairy kefir. Visit the website to find a store near you. I checked, and I can find it in a number of stores within an easy walk from my office, and even in markets near my rural home. How cool is that?
If you’d like to know why probiotics are so important to our health, I recommend this blog http://allergiesandyourgut.com/2014/11/18/prebiotics-probiotics/.
I bought a bottle today, and it’s very good. It’s slightly fizzy, refreshing, and has a light, fruity taste. The flavor I bought is Blueberry Cherry and does not contain coconut water, but does have organic apple cider vinegar, something I love. Although the bottle says it may contain traces of alcohol, it isn’t detectable to me, either in flavor or effect. This product isn’t cheap, costing me $3.49 plus tax at my Manhattan Whole Foods. It isn’t really kefir, but it has four strains of live probiotics.
If you try it, let me know what you think.
