Probiotic Recipes

Probiotic Ranch Dressing

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/8 to 1/4 cup almond or coconut milk (depending on consistency desired)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1-2 teaspoon fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
pepper as desired.

Mix or whisk all ingredients together. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can skip the milk for thicker consistency, which can be used as a dip.

Probiotic Frozen Yogurt

This recipe works best in an ice cream maker.  

4 cups of cow or goat Kefir.
1/2 cup raspberry or berry preserves sweetened with xylitol.
1 tsp vanilla

Start with the Kefir in the ice cream maker, then add the preserves and vanilla. If you can’t find preserves sweetened with xylitol, you can take frozen or fresh mixed berries, put them on the stove for 30 minutes and stirr in xylitol to sweeten. Let this cool before mixing in the ice cream.

Sauerkraut Probiotic Recipe

This recipe has been in my family for generations. a red cabbage. Thinly slice half a cabbage and massage it for 5 min with salt and 1/2 teaspoon of thyme or more, as you desire. Place cabbage in a glass jar and pack it tightly, so that the cabbage is sitting in its own juice the entire time it is fermenting. Place a thin cloth over the top of the jar and leave it on the counter for three days. After three days, taste it. If you’d like it more sour, leave it another day or two, otherwise refrigerate. Enjoy!

Did you know that probiotics have antioxidant properties?

Recent studies have led to a renewed interest in probiotics, which are known to have a multitude of health benefits. The incorporation of probiotics alone or in food can provide a good strategy to supply dietary antioxidants and reduce damages caused by oxidation. Oxidative stress in patients with type 2 diabetes can be mitigated by probiotics. This oxidative stress defines a condition in which the prooxidant–antioxidant balance in the cell is disturbed. Ultimately this compromises cell viability. Probiotics, which are capable of colonizing the intestinal tract, are reported to improve metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes through the effects of their administration in the intestinal tract. Evidence has also shown that probiotic bacteria present significant antioxidant abilities both in vivo and in vitro.
