There are three ways to prepare coconut water kefir: you can either use kefir as a starter, then you can use kefir starter culture, or you can you can use kefir grains, of course if you are able to find any.
The third method is the easiest to make and costs less, and you can use either water or milk kefir grains.
- 7 cups fresh coconut water
- 5 tbsp water kefir grains
- 1 Ceylon cinnamon stick
Start off by pouring the coconut water in a half a gallon jar and then add the grains. Put the lid on and leave it for 48 hours, but you mustn’t keep it longer to ferment or the jar will explode. Also, don’t close the lid too tight. You should see the grains floating on the surface once the fermentation has finished. You can use the grains for another batch, but you’ll have to prepare it right after you’ve prepared the first one.
