The vitamin and mineral content of coconut water includes beta carotene, Riboflavin, Thiamin, Niacin, pantothenic acid, folates and vitamins A,B6, C, E and K. What’s more important and why it’s considered better than regular kefir is the fact it doesn’t contain the problematic substances that regular dairy has such as casein and lactose. This just means that your body will process these probiotic benefits better. Coconut water kefir is believed to be the most beneficial probiotic beverage because it has a much more potent effect on the digestive system than any dairy probiotic food such as yogurt.

we know, dairy is acid forming and not a lot of people can handle it.  Additionally, the main minerals or electrolytes in coconut water are the same as those found in human blood.

How to Make Coconut Water Kefir

There are three ways to make your own coconut water kefir:

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

This is my favorite method. I think making water kefir with grains is the way to go. Fist you will need kefir grains (either water or milk kefir grains).  This method is more economical since the grains multiply fast which means you’ll always have them on hand.

Ingredients

  • 7 cups fresh coconut water
  • 5 tablespoons water kefir grains
  • 1 Ceylon cinnamon stick (my favorite cinnamon sticks)

Instructions

  • Add 7 cups of coconut water to your 1/2 gallon jar.
  • Place the water kefir grains in the coconut water and the cinnamon stick. Cover loosely and let it sit for 48 hours (not longer). Do not let it ferment too long; it might explode.
  • Once fermented, coconut water will become cloudy and lighter in color.  The kefir grains will rise up to the top when they are done culturing. When the culturing process is complete, remove the kefir grains.  Grains can be used immediately for a new batch or you can store them in water in the refrigerator.

That’s it! So easy but so good for you!
