OK, I must still be in the dark ages....

I was ready through the Smoothies thread & saw that a lot of people use kefiir as a base, but I have no idea what that is??!?!? Am I the only person in the world who hasn't heard of kefir?
What is it, what does it taste like, and where do I get it?

Also, a poster wrote they add rosewater to their smoothies. Is this for taste, or for nutritional reasons?

Kefir is a cultured milk beverage sort of like a drinkable yogurt. Look for it next to yogurt in your grocery.

Not sure about a nutritional benifit to rosewater. Rosehips are high in Vitamin C.
