Fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries make not only the prettiest, but also the tastiest Triple Berry water kefir soda. A little tip: don’t throw the berries away after fermentation. You can eat them and get the benefits of all the probiotic goodness.
Makes: about 4 cups
1/2 cup mixed raspberries, strawberries, blueberries slightly mulled
4 cups first ferment water kefir
Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
Strain the grains and add the berries to the swivel top bottle with the first ferment water kefir.
Seal the bottle and leave in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
Open slowly, strain and enjoy!
NEED TO KNOW:
This Triple Berry soda will last about 8 weeks before it turns to vinegar.
HEAT INCREASES FERMENTATION ACTIVITY
Please ensure that you check your second ferment every 8-12 hours in the summer. Water kefir loves warm temps and can easily become overactive with an explosive fizz. It’s best to open your bottle over the sink with a cloth over the swivel top and unclasp slowly. Summer fermenting is unpredictable and it’s best to check on your ferments more often.
