Lemon-Lime Kefir Soda

I came up with this recipe out of necessity. With an overabundance of fruit trees in my new backyard, I had to think of ways to use them. The presence of white grape juice in this recipe provides the sugar content needed for the cultures to consume and make probiotics! It doesn't hinder the citrus flavor and helps provide the fizz!


Lemon Lime Kefir Soda

  • ¾ cup lemon juice 2 large lemons juiced
  • ¼ cup lime juice2-3 key limes juiced

  • Add the Kefir Soda Starter packet OR kefir whey to your juice and stir till dissolved.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with water leaving an inch of room at the top.
  • Allow it to ferment for 3-7 days or until bubbly and fizzy. If your home is 75°F or warmer it will usually take 3-4 days. Colder homes can take 5 days or longer, but you'll need to check it by popping the top and see if it's getting fizzy. It will start to bubble out the top if it does.
  • When it's done, you can pour into a glass and enjoy right away or place it in the fridge.  Keep it stored in the fridge or it will continue to ferment and get overly fizzy and hard to pour. Burp daily &  consume within 1-2 weeks for the best flavor and most benefits and the best flavor.
  • You can use ½ cup of this finished kefir soda as a starter to make a new bottle.
    Add the other ingredients and ferment again. It should only take a half to a full day to ferment. It ferments faster on subsequent batches and you can make many bottles over and over again! 


Note: Always use bottles made for brewing.
