Dear Kefir Friends,
Today, I would like to present you a very special water kefir recipe. It is made of 3 easy ingredients: Pineapple, basil and water kefir. But this smoothie contains one special ingredient which has very different characteristics and a long history:
You won’t believe me if I told you that I am talking about pineapples.
This fruit was already used by indigenouse people 2000 BC. It wasn’t just one of their main food sources, they used it f.e. to produce wine because of it’s high sugar content. But even the pineapple plant was used by the indingenouse for making clothes or even bowstrings from it’s leaves.
Thanks to Christoph Columbus, the pineapple plant reached other tropical regions world wide since 16th century. That’s why we find that delicious fruit even in our kitchens now and than.
