Watermelon Cucumber Mint Water Kefir Soda

Leeza Zurwick

Founder

Watermelon and cucumber are foods which cool the body temperature. In this soda recipe, we’ve combined them with refreshing mint for a cooling taste of summer.

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups first ferment water kefir

1/4 cup finely chopped watermelon (fresh or frozen)

5 mint leaves

1/4 cup finely chopped cucumber

INSTRUCTIONS:

Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.

Add the watermelon, cucumber and mint.

Add 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!

Refrigerate immediately.

NEED TO KNOW:

This Watermelon Cucumber soda will give your immune system a boost of over 30 billion live probiotics, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin C, folate, vitamin K, electrolytes, enzymes and antioxidants.

HEAT INCREASES FERMENTATION ACTIVITY
Please ensure that you check your second ferment every 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.
