  • saucepan
  • Quart-size mason jar with lid



  • 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 the lid on the mason jar. Make sure the lid is airtight!
  • Let this mixture ferment at room temperature (72–75ºF) for 24 hours.
  • Remove the lid and taste. For a tangier drink, let it sit for another 12–24 hours.
  • When you’re happy with the flavor, stir again, put on the lid, and place it 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 your kefir within 2–3 weeks!
