Water Kefir Ideas for Recipes that will quench Your Thirst

Are you bored of sticking to plain water and searching for delicious and hydrating beverages? Look no further than water kefir!

Packed with probiotics and bursting with flavour, water kefir is a fantastic base for creating refreshing drinks that will keep you cool and refreshed on hot summer days.

1. Refreshing blend of peaches, ginger and water kefir in every sip

This invigorating and simple to make recipe offers a refreshing twist to your regular water kefir, providing a burst of flavour that will leave you feeling satisfied and rejuvenated.

Ginger is a fantastic addition to water kefir, making it a true healing bomb. This powerful combination of kefir, ginger, and peaches not only provides a refreshing and delicious drink but also offers a range of health benefits.

Ginger is thought to help the body absorb nutrients, act as an anti-inflammatory and antiviral agent, and boost the immune system. Consumption of ginger is also thought to have positive effects in reducing the risk of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease. It is thought to relieve irritated digestive tracts, stimulate saliva and bile secretion and inhibit abdominal cramps. It can also have a beneficial effect on nausea.

Peaches also help to stimulate digestion, prevent congestion and cleanse the kidneys and bladder. They also contain vitamin A, which helps to maintain healthy skin.

For this recipe you will need:
  • 600ml water kefir
  • half peach, peeled, sliced
  • 1 tsp dried ginger in pieces or fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar/honey/coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Add water kefir in a Kefirko jar. Dissolve in cane sugar. Add all the other ingredients. Seal the jar lid tight and let it ferment and carbonate for 24 hours.

Strain in a bottle and transfer it in the fridge to chill before serving. Enjoy the invigorating combination of juicy peaches, zesty ginger, and tangy lemon in this refreshing homemade probiotic drink.

2. Cool and Quenching, Hibiscus Water Kefir Iced Tea Recipe

  • 600ml water
  • 30g water kefir grains
  • 2 tbsp dried hibiscus petals
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar/honey/coconut sugar

Cover the jar and let it ferment at room temperature for 24-48 ur, until desired flavour and carbonation level is reached.
