I believe that kefir is a fermented dairy beverage, like a yogurt drink. I have heard things before about its health benefits, since it has a high yeast content and therefore is rich in probiotics. If you can't find the stuff, or are unsure about it, I'm sure you could substitute milk or half and half, or just leave it out. I have had corn soups before with no dairy, and they turn out great. If you blend some of the corn up at the end, it makes it's own sort of "cream."

Hello woodstock19124 , Thank you for pointing out that discrepancy, we've fixed the recipe to note how much kefir is supposed to be included. We're sorry for any confusion!

This looks good and I want to try it. However, I am still confused about the kefir. What is kefir? In looking up the definition it is listed as a cream and a grain. Which does this recipe use?

no where in the ingredients do you list kefir, and in the instructions #5 you say to stir in the kefir. what is it and how much do you need?? kindly advise. Thanks

I haven't tried the recipe yet, but I sure am glad that you are sharing the readers comments once again. Kudos.

Instruction #5 says to 'Stir in kefir,' however, kefir is not listed in the Ingredients! Are we talking about the yogurt-like drink? The soup in the photo does not seem very creamy?

This sounds like a fresh corn soup one of my great aunts used to make and I loved it. but, the instructions state to blend, then add kefir, reserved corn and chives. I do not see kefir on the list of ingredients. Am I missing something? I can't wait to try this but don't want to if I'm missing a vital ingredient

Ooops! Sorry Jeanne, I had the same question, but didn't see your comment before I wrote!
