How to Make Coconut Water Kefir at Home

Making coconut water kefir at home is easy and only requires just TWO ingredients. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:

- 32 oz. of coconut water (my favorite brand is Harmless Harvest)

- 1/4 cup of kefir grains

Mix Coconut Water and Water Kefir grains in a clean 32 oz. glass jar (sterilized). Cover and let it sit it a dark, warm area for 24-48 hours. Burp after 24 hours to release gases (or risk explosion!) :) Strain the water kefir grains from the Coconut Water Kefir and save the grains to reuse them (they live on forever and grow!) Refrigerate and enjoy within 5 days.

Coconut Water Kefir Recipe

Coconut Water Kefir, also known as tibicos, is a fermented drink made from water, sugar, and kefir grains. The recipe is super easy! These grains are a combination of bacteria and yeast that work together to create a probiotic-rich drink that is packed with health benefits.

Think Komucha but easier with more probiotics! (Don't’ worry, the sugar is eaten by the kefir grains!)
