  It isn’t frozen yogurt: It’s frozen kefir.

What’s the difference?

While many people think of kefir as “drinkable yogurt”—it looks and tastes like yogurt—it has a different complement of microorganisms. The result: A food even more healthful than probiotic yogurt.

Kefir has twice the probiotics of frozen yogurt: 12 different strains of probiotic bacteria and yeast compared with six strains in probiotic yogurt, and two or three in regular yogurt.

Lifeway, the nation’s largest producer of kefir (pronounced kuh-FEAR), has made us very happy with the introduction of frozen kefir.

Our favorite food is ice cream—make that the entire frozen dessert group, including frozen yogurt and sorbet. Yet, our doctor has told us to cut back on the lactose.

Lifeway Frozen Kefir is 99% lactose free. It’s tart and tangy, cool and creamy, and more than hits the spot. The four equally delicious flavors include Mango, Original, Pomegranate and Strawberry.

But it’s not just a boon to the 30 to 50 million lactose intolerant Americans: It’s a healthful treat for everyone.
