Kefir Ice Cream: Dessert For Your Gut!

Posted by Amanda Herries

If your digestion is not up to par, you are not alone — up to 70 million people are affected by digestive diseases. And that doesn’t count people who experience digestive disruptions like gas, bloating, or constipation who do not report it to their doctors. Did you know that these digestive disturbances can lead to further health complications down the line that have nothing to do with your digestion?

To rebalance your gut and get your health back on track, you will want to replenish your good bacteria. One of the best ways to do that is to eat fermented foods every day.

This Kefir Ice Cream recipe is one of our favorites. It’s a great way to have a sweet treat and balance your gut at the same time. You can’t get that with a pint of ice cream from your local grocer.
