Kefir Crème Brulee

Is always time for dessert, right? Today, I’m bringing you a classic dessert made with only two ingredients, Kefir and condensed milk. #ad @lifewaykefir  In our family we are obsessed with kefir for quite some time now. We usually drink it as it is, because it is so refreshing and delicious. But I also incorporate kefir in other recipes, sweet or savory, so even my kiddos can benefit from it without even knowing it.

If you don’t know Kefir is a tart and tangy fermented and cultured milk smoothie that is high in protein, calcium, vitamin D, and 12 live and active probiotic cultures which is more than double the number of probiotics found in yogurt. Plus, it’s also up to 99% lactose-free. What is more important is that kefir is so much loved by your guts as it contains probiotics, aka good bacteria, which helps regulate our microbiome. Having a healthy gut means having a strong immune system, good digestion, and good mental health. I cannot emphasize enough that first take care of your gut so your gut can take care of you.
