You can prepare this drink in a few different ways, like: using existing kefir for a starter, kefir starter culture and using kefir grains. But the most effective and cheapest way at the same time is the last one, using the kefir grains, milk or water kefir grains.
- A ceylon cinnamon stick
- 5 tablespoons of water/milk kefir grains
- 7 cups of fresh coconut water
Get a half gallon jar and add the coconut water inside, then put the water kefir grains as well, and you may cover the jar but not too tight. Then let it stay for 48 hours, but if you wait a little longer, that fermentation can cause an explosion.
Once the fermentation process has started, the mixture gets a lighter color, then at the end you should see the grains on top, that is how you know that the process has finished. Then remove the grains from the jar and keep them for another preparation for the same method.
