    I know the recommendation is to try and eat Kefir by itself to keep it away from the digestive acids in the stomach, but Im wondering if we mix kefir with a “smoothy” mine consists of 8 z kefir, 4 oz coconut milk, 3 Tbsp hemp protein, and some cinnamon, if this would be OK? I want to retain as much of the beneficial vitamins and probiotic properties of kefir as possible but man…for some reason all my batches are coming out really thick, like almost yogurt, and I just cant do it by itself. I researched this today and found this is how kefir is really supposed to be; before mine was very zingy and carbonated but still watery like milk..I liked it this way but after I put it in the fridge for over a month now it is making the batches differently…even after reducing the among of grains several times it has been hard to achieve the consistency of the original batch. At any rate, my main question is above, if I can add these types of food/seasonings/powder etc will this destroy or take away from the nutrients or probiotics f the kefir? Thanks

    I have been wondering about the consistency of kefir as well. When I Google the word “kefir,” half of the images look like milk, and half of the images look like dry cottage cheese:

    And kefir CHEESE is something completely:

    Hi,
    Whats the ratio of grain to milk? It should be 1 part grains to 20 parts milk. You might want to experiment where you place your culture to ferment. Location can make a differnce. To cool or too warm will effect the grains. Find a place where they are comfortable. Mine is in my living room. They like it there the Best of luck to you,
    Miriam
