Lemon Pie Waffles

When Lifeway Kefir meets Cravings by Chrissy, it’s a pairing of pure morning magic because these Lemon Pie Waffles are the very zest. For this recipe, we use Cravings by Chrissy Teigen Waffle Mix but substitute Lemon Lifeway Kefir in place of standard milk. Then we add a yummy Farmer Cheese filling to create a stacked plate of flawlessly fluffy waffles bursting with probiotics and citrusy goodness. Topped with lemon slices, powdered sugar, and syrup, this is the breakfast or brunch treat you’ll want on repeat.

Cultured Dairy: The Nutrition Benefits You Need to Know

With increasing research linking the correlation between probiotics, gut health, and immunity, it’s no secret that the integrity of our gut is vital to our health. Although additional factors such as stress, antibiotic usage, and individual health conditions can contribute to the condition of our gut, a focus on healthy food choices is one of the easiest ways to support the microbiome.

Several studies have shown a strong association between the gut-brain-microbiota. Probiotics introduced to the gut have been found to support immunityimprove allergies, and improve digestion.

Studies have shown that reduced diversity of healthy gut bacteria during early years is associated with an increase in food allergies during school-age years. In addition, kefir made from whole milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium. It’s important to know that kefir contains a special trio: vitamin D, K, and calcium – all three crucial elements to support bone health.
