    Question Does anyone here like the taste of Kefir milk? Bought my first quart today!>>>>>>

    I haven't tried it straight up yet. I actually bought it for my egg/whey shakes. Plain yogurt is delicious to me where a few years ago it wasn't, so I hope I can acquire a taste for kefir!

    I had it once, years ago, and didn't like it... I should try it again. Let me know what you think.

    There was a little boy (probably 8 years old) in my local natural food co-op last weekend who got SO EXCITED when his dad said he was buying kefir. It was freaking adorable.

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    I like it just fine in shakes, with some sweetener. Doesn't taste very different from yogurt, just looser. I think it's really high in probiotics, though; I seem to recall it could give me a rumbly tummy.

    I sometimes wish I could have a "Do Over" with my kids---I'd raise them to eat much healthier. My kids just grimaced when they saw that I bought kefir......

    That boy sounds cute!

    I make my own and I must say it took a while to get used to drinking it straight up. I use it mostly in smoothies and have recently started drinking it straight as a post work out drink (maybe 6 oz or so). But now I enjoy it but it is a bit sour like buttermilk. Like most things, it does require acquiring a taste.

    I think it's delicious. Pretty similar in taste to plain yogurt and as PrarieProf said, a little looser. I think it's similar from a macronutrient perspective too, so if you're trying to keep carbs really low for some reason, be careful.

    I have it quite often... just had one for breakfast
    it might take some time to get used to.. but if you like the taste of regular yogurt ( such as greek) you should not have a problem!

    So where do you guys actually buy Kefir?

    I've gone to Publix, Walmart, Winn-Dixie, the "odd" grocery store called Apple Market and none of them have Kefir. I have been looking in the yogurt section and the milk section. Where is this crap at?

    YES, I have the same question. Is it refrigerated in the store, or is it on the shelf near yogurt? Does it come in a milk-like carton?

    Best to all,
