This is one of our best cold and flu busters and year-round health tonics. Lemon, ginger and cayenne are all great foods to boost our metabolism. Water kefir brings balance to our body by flushing out the bad bacteria in our gut and repopulating the good bacteria. Thanks to these benefits, we can improve the functioning of our body, as well as achieve metabolic stability. The enzymes in water kefir also aid in the digestion process preventing excess accumulation of fats.

LEMON CAYENNE GINGER RECIPE

MAKES: about 4 cups

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups first ferment

1/4 cup lemon juice

5-10 cubes candied or fresh ginger

Pinch of cayenne pepper

Sprig of fresh lemon balm or mint

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
  • Strain the grains and pour the water kefir into the swivel top bottle. Add the flavouring ingredients.
  • Seal the swivel top bottle and leave it in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
  • Open slowly, strain and enjoy!

NEED TO KNOW:

The water kefir eats up the natural sugars from the lemons and the ginger. The cayenne and the ginger boost your body by making your inner temperature rise.

Refrigerate immediately. Burp bottle occasionally to release excess CO2. Water kefir can last up to 8 weeks in the fridge.
