How To Make Kefir at Home


Add this healthy habit to your day by turning milk into probiotic-rich kefir.



1 cup organic, whole milk

1 tbsp active kefir grains*


  1. In a clean glass jar, add 1 tbsp of live and active kefir grains.
  2. Add milk and gently stir.
  3. Lightly cover the jar with a lid (don’t tighten it close) or a paper towel and rubber band.
  4. Let sit at room temperature away from direct sunlight for 24-48 hours.
  5. Check the top of the milk every 12 hours and strain using a mesh strainer once firm.
  6. Use the remaining kefir grains and repeat.


If purchasing kefir grains online, you’ll need to follow directions to “wake them up.”
