The coconut water kefir is considered to be even more beneficial for human’s healthiness than the ordinary kefir because it is lactose and casein free.

These components are found in milk, and are known as “the problematic substances” of the milky products. Lactose is the sugar found in milk and casein is one of the major proteins.

Intolerances to both lactose and casein are prevalent and can cause a number of unpleasant side effects.

Subsequently, the kefir made of this water can enhance the absorption of supplements and, accordingly, improve the process of digestion.

What you Need?

  • Five tablespoons of water kefir grains
  • Seven cups of coconut water
  • One cinnamon stick

How to Make it?

Mix all three ingredients into ½ gallon jar and close the jar with a lid, but loosely. Let it rest for 2 days and 2 nights (do not leave it longer then this because the longer fermentation can cause explosion).

When the fermentation period ends, the liquid will turn brighter in colour and you will know that the culturing process ended when you see the kefir grains resting or moving on the top of the surface of the liquid without sinking. In this phase, take out the grains. Use the same grains if you want to repeat the process.
