What Is Kefir Cheese?

Kefir cheese is milk kefir strained through a cheesecloth leaving all the solid milk while the liquid drains into a bowl or measuring jug. I use the liquid to make a chocolate drink for the kids, but it can also be added into soups as the liquid portion. If you want to learn How To Make Kefir Cheese I have a post about it here. It’s really quite simple just requires some time for the liquid to strain out.

Milk kefir is milk fermented using kefir grains which naturally thicken the milk and make it extra healthy. I wrote this post on How To Make Milk Kefir and talked about its benefits if you would like to learn more. Milk kefir is a probiotic rich food which is great for your overall health.

Ingredients You Need

Kefir Cheese or cream cheese will do. But Kefir cheese will give you the probiotics and extra health benefits making this a healthier cheesecake.

Rapadura Sugar: You can use any sweetener, but I love the taste of rapadura sugar which is dehydrated molasses. It taste similar to brown sugar but healthier for you.

Sea salt: Salt helps to enhance the flavour of food and adds extra minerals

Vanilla: Just a little vanilla essence is all you need but it’s optional if you don’t have.

Dark Chocolate: You will need 2 bars of dark chocolate. I love 50 percent for the middle 85% dark for the ganache but you can use different percentages.

Cream: You will need pure cream for whipping and for the chocolate ganache on top.

Grass Fed Gelatin: Because this is a no bake cheesecake you will need something to help it thicken and set. I buy a good quality gelatin.

Cheesecake Crust: You will need a base for the cheesecake. I will put up a recipe for my oat base soon.
