Raspberry Vanilla Water Kefir Soda Recipe

Leeza Zurwick


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.


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!


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.
