Tropical Cocomelon Recipe
Fermenting Coconut Water is different that just making straight water kefir. The beauty of it is that you don’t add any sugar to the ferment. The water kefir grains eat up all of the natural sugars in the coconut water and produces a lovely, extra low sugar, fermented product that is brimming with live probiotics and a high concentration of potassium to replace electrolytes!
