• Fermenting,  Water Kefir

    Water Kefir Soda

    ~ A healthy, probiotic-rich way to kick the sugary soda habit! If you haven’t heard of water kefir yet, you’re not alone. It seems like it’s a lesser-known way of fermenting. It’s a lot milder than some of the other fermented drinks. Some have a tart vinegary taste that can be off-putting to some. Water kefir has a slightly sweet and lightly sour taste. It is perfect if you’re new to fermenting or you just can’t handle the taste of some of the other more popular fermented drinks. Disclaimer – This post contains affiliate links.

This amazing drink originates from a grain that dates back two thousand years to the Caucasus Mountains of Europe. As far as I’ve read it’s unclear how the grains were started.
