I love the refreshing taste of coconut water kefir. This is super easy to make and you can culture your first batch and then use a portion of this to make it many times over. This coconut water kefir gets very cloudy and this is normal. Add a splash of lime juice and serve cold! Wonderful for summertime!
Add one packet of Easy Kefir, and stir or shake to combine.
Place a lid on the jar and let it sit for two to three days at room temperature. Taste your kefir after day two. If it tastes tart, it's ready. But if it tastes sweet, let it ferment longer till it's tart tasting and no sweetness remains. Store in your refrigerator. This will last several weeks.
Re-culturing water kefir
Use ¼ cup of your already-fermented water kefir and add 30 ounces of coconut water. Ferment again for 48 hours. Taste it to make sure it's tart and not sweet. If it's not sweet tasting, then it's ready. You can do this at least seven more times or until it stops culturing and remains sweet. Then you know you need a new package.
For extra flavor, add a slice of lemon or lime and a few drops of stevia for extra sweetness.
