The preparation of Coconut water kefir

You can make coconut water kefir three ways:

  1. Use the existing kefir as a starter
  2. use a kefir starter culture
  3. use kefir grains

The best way is the third way. You can use the water or the milk kefir grains to start up. It is more economical because the grains can multiply faster and you will always have some for more preparations.

Needed ingredients:

  • 7 cups fresh coconut water
  • 5 tablespoons water/milk kefir grains

Way of preparation:

  • Have a bigger jar. Put 8 cups of coconut water in half of the jar.
  • Add the kefir grains to the coconut water. You need to cover it loosely and leave it for 48 hours. If you leave it more than 48 hours it will ferment for too long and it might explode.
  • The color of the coconut water will change. It will become cloudy and lighter. After the grains are done culturing they will rise to the top of the jar. You now can remove the kefir grains. If you like you can store the grains in the refrigerator in water or you can use them to make another coconut water kefir.

So here it is. Just enjoy drinking it and heal your system!!
