The coconut water kefir can be actually prepared in three different ways: by using existing kefir as a starter, kefir grains, or a kefir starter culture. But, the most inexpensive way is to use kefir grains (either milk or water kefir grains).
- 7 cups fresh of coconut water
- 1 Ceylon cinnamon stick
- 5 tablespoons of water kefir grains
First of all, pour the coconut water into a 1/2 gallon jar, and then add the water kefir grains, and cover it loosely. Let it for about 48 hours, but no longer than that, because longer fermentation can result in explosion.
Once fermented, it gets a lighter color and when the culturing process ends, the kefir grains will rise up to the top. Afterwards, you should remove the grains, and they can be re-used again in case you immediately want to make another batch.
