Cinnamon Coconut Water Kefir is one of the healthiest beverages in the world! We have already shared several articles on the incredible benefits of coconut water here, but this recipe ramps the health benefits up a notch
Coconut water kefir is one of the easiest beverages to make for vibrant health. If you’re dealing with low energy, blood sugar issues, excess weight, sugar cravings, and digestive issues, coconut kefir will help you heal.
This wonderful fermented beverage is rich in beneficial bacteria, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that are crucial for digestion.
- 4 cups young coconut water—use 3-4 young coconuts or packaged unsweetened coconut water (This is the brand of coconut water I like)
- 4 tablespoons re-hydrated water kefir grains or 1 packet of kefir starter
- 1-Quart sterilized glass jar with lid
- 1 Ceylon cinnamon stick (my favorite cinnamon sticks)
- Pour the room temperature coconut water into the glass jar. Add the kefir grains and the cinnamon stick.
- You can also leave the cinnamon stick out and add it during a second ferment if using kefir grains instead of the kefir starter.
- If using the kefir starter, warm the coconut water to 92 degrees F. and pour into the glass jar.
- Stir in the kefir starter with a large spoon, add cinnamon stick, and cover the jar loosely with the lid.
- Let coconut water kefir set at room temperature for 24-48 hours.
- Coconut water kefir is ready when it turns milky white or cloudy, fizzy, and tastes tangy.
- After 24 hours, pour a small amount of kefir into a glass and taste. If the kefir is fizzy, milky white or cloudy and you like the taste of the kefir, strain out the kefir grains and cinnamon stick, then place the kefir in the refrigerator for up to 7—14 days.
- If you didn’t add the cinnamon to the first ferment you can add the cinnamon stick now after you strain out the water kefir grains and do a second ferment for 1 day.
- If you are using the water kefir grains, once you strain them out of the coconut water kefir.
- You need to store the grains in sugar water made with ¼ cup of organic sugar and 1 quart of pure spring water in a covered container until you’re ready to make another batch of coconut water kefir.
- I usually just use the kefir grains to make another batch of coconut water kefir right away.
- If you don’t want to do this, the water kefir grains can stay in the refrigerator for several weeks and up to 1 month in the sugar water.
- If using the kefir starter, you can remove ¼ cup of the coconut kefir and add to another 4 cups of coconut water to make a new batch.
