Healthy Dessert Recipe: Kefir and Granola Sundae!
October 21, 2011
This dessert recipe was contributed by Anne Moertel, Communications and Design Specialist for HSC. This dessert is a take on an ice cream sundae, but replaces the ice cream with kefir and tops it off with fresh strawberries and local sweet granola.
Kefir is a probiotic, very similar to yogurt, and contains live cultures that promote healthy bacteria to aid digestion and bring balance to your inner ecosystem. It is considered a cultured milk product, created by fermenting milk with kefir grains, which makes for a very tasty and protein rich drink. It has a similar tartness to yogurt, but is said to be even better for bringing healthy bacteria to your body.
This dessert makes a surprisingly sweet and delicious dessert that still delivers on nutrition with one serving coming in under 250 calories!
