Coconut water kefir is an extremely beneficial drink, which is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. It is a rich source of vitamins K, C, E, A, B6, beta-carotene, folates, Thiamin, Niacin, Riboflavin, and pantothenic acid.
This drink does not contain lactose or casein, so it is even healthier than regular kefir, as these ingredients are the most problematic in its content.
Its consumption will help digestion and enhance the absorption of nutrients.
It provides multiple health benefits, as it:
- Improves vision
- Strengthens the immune system
- Soothes PMS symptoms
- Improves hydration
- it is a rich source of dietary minerals, such as natural sodium, potassium, chloride
- Aids digestion
- Fights pathogenic yeasts in the body
- Prevents sugar cravings
- Boosts the energy levels
It can be prepared in three different ways: by using kefir grains, an existing kefir as a starter, or a kefir starter culture.
Yet, the cheapest way is to prepare it using kefir grains, either water or milk kefir grains.
This is how to prepare it:
- 5 tablespoons of water kefir grains
- 1 Ceylon cinnamon stick
- 7 cups fresh of coconut water
You should pour the coconut water into a 1/2 gallon jar and then add the water kefir grains.
Cover the jar loosely and leave it for 48hours. Note that if you leave it longer, you may cause an explosion, due to the fermentation that will take place.
As soon as it is fermented, it will turn lighter in color. At the end of the culturing process, the kefir grains will rise up to the top, and you need to remove them.
If you want to prepare another batch right away, you can use the kefir grains again. Enjoy your drink and enhance your overall health!
