When I was presented with the opportunity to try out Lifeway Kefir I knew right away that I wanted to create something that highlighted my favorite dip – Tzatziki! Staying true to my “creative culinary collision concepts” I thought it would be fun to turn that delicious Tzatziki dip into warm, fluffy, tender, and scrumptious biscuits!
And not just any biscuits, I’m talking about DROP biscuits – aka. easy!
Here are some of the amazing benefits of Lifeway Probiotic Kefir!
THE LIFEWAY STORY
FROM THE BASEMENT TO NASDAQ
The Lifeway story begins in 1986, when Russian immigrants Michael and Ludmila Smolyansky began making Kefir in the basement of their Skokie, IL home. The cultured dairy drink had been popular in Eastern Europe for centuries, but the Smolyansky family was determined to share their delicious health secret with their newfound home. Two years later, they took the company public and it debuted on the NASDAQ exchange under the ticker symbol LWAY.
