Cuisine: Raw
Author: KDawn Stone
Cook time:
Total time:
  • 2 Thai young green coconuts
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water kefir grains
  • Lemon or ginger to taste
  1. Open the coconuts using either a hammer and screwdriver or coconut opener.
  2. Pour the coconut water through a milk bag and into a quart jar. Use a funnel on the jar so you don’t spill the coconut water.
  3. Fill the jar three-quarters full. Make sure the coconut water is clear. If the water is pink, it is rancid.
  4. Add fresh kefir grains to the coconut water.
  5. Put a milk bag (or cheesecloth) over the top of the jar (secure with a rubber band) and place in a warm place.
  6. Ferment for 24 hours.
  7. The water will turn milky white.
  8. Once the kefir is done, strain it through the milk bag and store the mother culture in the refrigerator in a jar of pure water until you are ready to use again.
  9. You can drink it as-is or add fresh ginger juice and a touch of lemon for flavor.
