This week’s health food product review and here we have the Frozen Raspberry Kefir from Lifeway.
Kefir is a delicious fermented milk drink that originated in the Caucasus Mountains made with kefir “grains”, a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter.
Kefir is a great source of live probiotic bacteria, which help to repopulate the gut flora and support the digestive system.
Lifeway describe their frozen kefir as a creamy, delicious dessert packed with 10 live and active probiotic cultures. This tart and tangy treat is high in protein and calcium, and it’s made from all natural ingredients.
Lifeway also produce a range of other products including organic kefir drinks, protein kefir, probugs ice lolly’s, kefir starter kits and much more.
The frozen Kefir from Lifeway is GMO free, lactose free, gluten free and only contains 1g of fat and 90 calories per serving.
The Natural Health Blogger’s Review
As many of my past readers of the blog will already know, I have been a massive fan of fermented foods such as kefir for many years now.
I had never tried frozen kefir previously, so when I stumbled upon it in the frozen section of Morrisons supermarket, I knew I had to buy a tub of the raspberry flavour to review for the blog.
The taste and consistency is very similar to regular ice cream or frozen yogurt, just with the slightly more tart flavour that comes with kefir.
I find kefir digests much better than both ice cream and frozen yogurt, this is likely due to the live probiotic bacteria/yeast, which help to aid and support the digestive process.
Priced at £3.74 for a pint tub it compares in cost to most premium ice cream brands. I don’t find it as “moreish” as sugar laden ice cream, so you get a decent amount of servings out of the tub also.
I would definitely recommend our readers who enjoy the occasional ice cream or frozen yogurt treat to check out frozen kefir as a delicious healthy alternative.
£3.74 per tub
