Bubbly Family Drinks & Creams: Made Fun & Healthy!

BEAT THE SUGAR CRAZE! Sweet cool drinks are a must all year-round!  Is your family reaching for drinks laden with sugar (frozen drink concentrates, powder drinks, soda, and even just plain 100% juice?)  All of these are chalk-full of sugar!  And sugar lowers the immune system.

Ever noticed that sour cream, and cheese is full of modified milk ingredients and fillers? 

Interested in real whole food?


Clotted cultured cream. . .this cream is not whipped; it is naturally clotted from the milk kefir grain. And amazingly healthy laden with probiotic strains! And heavenly delicious! The cultured cream is weetened with Manitoba honey, and served on a fair-trade chocolate brownie made with Manitoba oats, raw honey, and pastured eggs.

Take this bubbly course and learn to make homemade soda drinks fit for the whole family (my 1-year old baby is a huge fan). Not only will you be beating the sugar craze, but providing drinks that are full of probiotics (healthy bacteria)! 

And you will be providing your family with nutrient-dense healthy cultured cream & cheese products right in your kitchen!
