Coconut Water Kefir

Coconut water kefir is a sparkling drink and a healthy alternative to regular soft drinks that healthy kids will love. It’s a supercharged powerful probiotic and excellent for improving digestive health and boosting immunity. Here is a simple recipe to make coconut water kefir at home.

Kefir Benefits Healthy Kids

Kefir enjoys popularity throughout the world as a healthful and refreshing beverage. But a new product, coconut kefir, is claimed to eclipse the health benefits of traditional kefir by combining the benefits of kefir with the health rewards and delicious flavour of coconut water.

Coconut kefir is coconut water that has been fermented with kefir grains. Like dairy kefir, it provides fuel for the beneficial bacteria in your child's gut. These good bacteria fight potentially harmful bacteria as well as infection. They also help stimulate digestion and boost kids immune function.

All the nutrients in coconut water are present in coconut kefir. The downside of coconut kefir?

Probiotics are live bacteria or yeast that line your gut. The presence of these healthy bacteria can inhibit unhealthy bacteria’s efforts to enter the body and take up residence in the gut. 

  • 1.5 l coconut water
  • kefir starter culture
  1. Place coconut water into a 2 litre sterilised glass jar and add starter culture.

  2. Stir the mix using a wooden spoon (never use metal utensils) and leave on the bench-top to ferment for 24-48 hours (24 hours for warm weather and 48 hours for colder weather). Taste the mix and it should be tangy and not sweet.
