Pre-Flavoring Yogurt

Do you know of any issues with adding flavorings before the ferment? I know not to use flavorings that might kill the bacteria,like honey, but what about other stuff like pureed fruit, cocoa, or peanut butter?

Just my idea, but I would add anything as a part of the second fermentation, meaning after you pick out the grains and let the kefir work on (either at the room temp or in the fridge). Otherwise there's always a risk of spoiling/damaging the kefir culture with something else, which is "sitting" on the added ingredient or killing it in the worst case. You might even end up with the grains getting mixed up with whatever is added.
