Ingredients

Christmas is fast approaching. For many it is a hectic and stressful time, often accompanied by neglecting our healthy eating routine.

One of the paths to good health is through our gut. Digestion of food, absorption of nutrients and disposal of toxins are some of the processes, which happen in our gut day in and day out. We can help our gut by eating right and that includes eating foods, which support the balance of good bacteria in our gut.

Kefir is amongst these ‘good-bacteria-supporting’ foods. In fact, it contains many beneficial bacteria. You can easily make kefir at home by using a commercially available dry kefir starter or maybe a friend grows kefir cultures and is happy to share them with you. Alternatively, you can buy ready-to-consume kefir in many health food shops these days.

Use kefir like you would use yogurt but keep in mind that kefir is a little bit more liquid than yogurt. So, that is essentially what we are doing in this wonderful recipe. We use kefir instead of yogurt and combine it with the best fruits summer has to offer.


  • ¼ rock melon
  • 2 kiwi fruits
  • 2 cups kefir
  • 2 teaspoons honey (raw, if possible)
  • 2 handful goji berries
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Instructions


  • Remove the skin of the rock melon and the kiwi fruits.
  • Cut them in bite size pieces and distribute between 2 bowls.
  • Add kefir and honey.
  • In order to make this treat even more exciting, sprinkle goji berries and chia seeds on top. Not only do they complete the Christmas-like colour scheme of the dish but they also add a wonderful crunch.
