This Blueberry Dream Water Kefir Soda gets it’s name from the aromatic scent that hits you the minute you open the bottle, so delicious and fresh. Blueberries are powerful antioxidants, high in vitamin C and potassium, and phytoflavinoids making them a wonderful ingredient to help with inflammation, and they also lower the risk of heart disease. We used tart cherry juice in our second ferment because of its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties
