We are excited to announce this summer’s Freshii x Lifeway collaboration! Freshii is now serving Lifeway’s gut-healthy frozen kefir at all their locations throughout the United States. Their menu of salads, wraps, and bowls now features frozen kefir with delicious toppings to choose from, plus healthy kefir smoothies.
Kefir is yogurt’s tart and tangy cousin with twice the probiotics – it’s a serious upgrade from your standard froyo. Once you give frozen kefir a try, we guarantee it’s going to be your go-to summer snack. You can enjoy a refreshing smoothie after a workout for a protein boost or grab a cup of frozen kefir while you’re out with your friends.
Want to impress your pals while you enjoy a refreshing snack? Memorize these fun facts about kefir!
- Aided digestion: To maintain gut health, keeping a healthy balance of the bacteria in the gut is imperative. The live and active probiotic cultures found in kefir are known to balance the gut and help to support the digestive system and immunity.
- Maintain a healthy weight: Kefir is high in protein, which increases satiety and helps you to feel full for longer, which may curb any unhealthy cravings you have throughout the day.
- Excellent source of calcium: An adequate intake of calcium is an effective way to improve bone health and slow down the progression of osteoporosis (porous bones).
Where did kefir come from?
Kefir is believed to have originated in Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia. The word is derived from the Turkish term, keyif, which means “good feeling.” With one bite of our frozen kefir, we know you’ll feel good with frozen snack choices this summer. So what are you waiting for? Head to your local Freshii for a delicious and nutritious summer treat! Take a look below at the wide variety of flavors and toppings to choose from.
