Tips when using milk kefir in recipes instead of milk, sour cream etc:

  1. When replacing milk or buttermilk in recipes you may need to add just a bit more milk kefir if it is thick.
  2. When replacing sour cream you might want to add a bit less milk kefir unless it has gotten thick.
  3. When replacing mayo depending on the recipe you might want to mix half & half with mayo.
  4. When balking it is pretty easy to use milk kefir to replace milk, sour cream, buttermilk etc.

  5. In cooking recipes or cold salads you might want to start off with a little & go by taste.


I have found these to be great uses, just make sure when experimenting with using kefir that you go by taste & do not overdo it.

  1. In biscuits, oh my goodness using milk kefir to replace milk or buttermilk & letting them set just a bit makes the most amazing biscuits. I love to make drop biscuits using milk kefir.
  2. Breads
  3. In Pancakes, waffles & muffins.
  4. Gravies (less is more when adding to gravies).
  5. Mashed potatoes
  6. Cake & cake frosting
  7. Cream soups & chowders
  8. Ice cream
  9. Smoothies
  10. Potato salad (& other cold salads)
  11. Deviled eggs
  12. Top baked potatoes
  13. in dressings
  14. To make cheese (find out how to make milk kefir cheese here)

Oh my goodness I know I have forgotten some uses, but you get the idea, use your imagination.

Just remember heating the kefir does loose some of the probiotic benefits but it is still a healthy alternative.

I will be sharing recipes for some of these uses on my blog soon.
