Ginger Turmeric Water Kefir
With probiotics from fermentation and two anti-inflammatory ingredients, this Ginger Turmeric Water Kefir supports your gut and your overall health.
Servings: 3 cups
Add the coconut water and orange juice to a saucepan and very gently heat to lukewarm, or about 90ºF.
Into a quart-sized mason jar, add the coconut water and orange juice mixture together with the contents of one foil packet of kefir starter.
Add ginger and turmeric.
Stir to mix well. Put lid on mason jar. Make sure the lid is air tight!
Let this mixture ferment at room temperature (72-75ºF) for 24 hours.
Remove the lid and taste. For a tangier drink, let sit for another 12-24 hours.
When you’re happy with the flavor, stir again, put on the lid and place into the refrigerator.
In place of fresh turmeric, you can use 1½ teaspoons ground turmeric.
In your refrigerator, fermentation continues but chilling will slow down the fermentation process. Enjoy within 2-3 weeks!
