Wanted to share an email that we answered yesterday…
David emailed us with his dilemma saying: “I have been buying your kefir for a while now and I’ve now tried making my own with your starter kits and it’s working out well.
My question is: I kinda still find it hard to drink. So I’ve started making smoothies with the kefir with mixed frozen fruits, and it’s really nice to drink, but does it take away any of the goodness of kefir? I am suffering with ibs and want all the goodness? Any advice would be really appreciated.”
Here’s how we replied: “So, here are my thoughts about the effectiveness of kefir when blended – such as with fruits etc. I think it is totally fine and still fully effective.
I would try to keep some natural kefir to drink – perhaps a small glass before bed!
But blended kefir will obviously taste great – and should assist your digestion of the other ingredients. For example – kefir and chia seeds is a great combo to get the good bacteria, fibre and omega 3 from the seeds – and is great to make with a still warm fresh batch of kefir made with our starter cultures.
And kefir mixed with frozen fruits will still be good too – so yes, go for it. You are not diminishing the effectiveness of the kefir .”
I hope this is helpful to anyone who doesn’t really enjoy the natural kefir taste… but wants to know they are still getting the benefits when they blend it with fruits. xx

Having a relaxing start to the day with my favourite kefir drink and enjoying the latest issue of Liz Earle Wellbeing.
This Winter issue has lots of ideas for the festive season. As well as tips for keeping your gut healthy. We suggest keeping some bottles of Nourish in the fridge or Starter Cultures to make some when you need it!
Liz draws our attention to Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week: 1-7th December. Having suffered with crohn’s for almost 10 years I know first hand how increased awareness creates more understanding about the conditions. I will always be grateful to have discovered the healing benefits of kefir made from grains. As you probably know it’s the reason why Nourish Kefir came about!
Have a lovely Friday,

It’s Organic September and Nourish Kefir- the authentic organic kefir is being sampled at wonderful organic, natural and health food stores around London.
So what’s good about organic cow’s milk kefir?
Lots of things…
The cow’s have a good life, for the most part they graze in open pastures – essentially they are ‘free range’.
The grass, so lush and vibrant has been watered by natural rainfall, rich in micro nutrients such as minerals.
Also – there is no artificial, chemical fertilisers or pesticides sprayed on the pastures, which is good for us and good for the natural bio-diversity of the countryside – living in harmony with nature!
The cow’s are well looked after, they are not pushed to produce a greater yield and they are not routinely given antibiotics
Nourish Kefir is organic certified by the Organic Food Federation, you can find out more about them here.
