Our family was raised on homemade raspberry juice so this recipe tastes like home, childhood and berry picking in the garden to us. A bit of vanilla and ginger makes this raspberry vanilla water kefir smooth and just a little more sophisticated.
RASPBERRY VANILLA WATER KEFIR SODA
MAKES: about 4 cups
4 cups first ferment
10 – 20 raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cubes dried ginger or fresh ginger slices
- Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
- Strain the grains and add all ingredients to the swivel top bottle with the first ferment water kefir.
- Seal up 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:
Fast frozen organic raspberries have lots of flavour and freezing doesn’t diminish the nutrients. Use fresh berries only when they’re in season.
Raspberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and fibre.
This soda will give your body a big boost of vitamin C, probiotics, magnesium, B vitamins, folate, vitamin K, electrolytes and enzymes.
