Easy to make kafir recipe using almond milk


1 x cup raw almonds soaked for 8 – 12 hours

7 or 8 cups filtered water

4 Bioglan Probiotic (25 Billion) Capsules

Natural sweetener (optional to taste)


Kefir is a creamy, cultured substance most akin to yoghurt. It is rich in probiotics and has a number of health benefits. Normally made using dairy milk and grains, our recipe uses almonds, probiotics and water, making it a great option for people avoiding grains and dairy or animal products. Makes 4-6 cups kefir.

  1. Rinse and drain your almonds thoroughly.
  2. Blend almonds and water in your Vitamix or other high quality blender for about 2 minutes until nuts are completely pulverised.
  3. Strain the milk through into a large glass bowl.
  4. Add the contents of about 4 x Bioglan Probiotic capsules and gently stir with a wooden spoon.
  5. Cover the bowl with a breathable cloth and allow to stand at room temperature for about 12 hours or over-night. More time may be needed in colder months. You can wrap the bowl with a towel to help insulate and retain warmth.
  6. After about 12 hours, your mixture should look like a yellow almond water with a layer of cream’ on top, and smell fermented like yoghurt. If there is just a thin layer and not much odour, it is not quite done.
  7. Gently skim this cream’ off with a spoon and keep for use in smoothies and puddings.
  8. Strain the remaining liquid with a fine mesh strainer.
  9. Store the kefir in sealed glass mason jar in the fridge for up to a week.
  10. Flavour and sweeten to taste with vanilla extract, liquid stevia, cinnamon, low sugar fruit .
