White Chocolate Peppermint Water Kefir Recipe

White Chocolate Peppermint Water Kefir Recipe

This pretty white chocolate peppermint drink combines the smooth taste of white chocolate with the spicy taste of peppermint, making it the perfect New Year’s Eve mocktail.


2 tbsp of white hot chocolate mix – like this one!

1/2 cup water

1/8 tsp peppermint extract or 5 fresh mint leaves

4 cups of first ferment


Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.

In a very small sauce pan, bring 1/2 cup of water to a low simmer and add white hot chocolate mix. Whisk until well dissolved. Leave on a low simmer until half of the liquid is reduced. Aim to get a 1/4 cup of mix once it’s reduced.

Pour 1/4 cup of the reduced mixture through a strainer into a sanitized swivel top bottle using a funnel. It is normal for the chocolate to leave some grainy texture behind in the strainer. Add 1/8 tsp of peppermint extract or mint leaves in the bottle. Be careful not to add too much!

Strain grains, and add the first ferment to the bottle with the white chocolate and peppermint.

Seal the bottle, and gently tip upside down 2 or 3 times to ensure well mixed.

Leave the bottle in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.

Refrigerate until well chilled.

Open slowly, and enjoy!


“Burp” the bottle every 12 hours during the second ferment to avoid an overflow.
