Flavoring Water Kefir (or Kombucha) {Tips-n-Tricks Tuesday}

   I told you in my last post about water kefir that I would do a post soon about how to flavor it. Well here it is! I found the concept originally on one of may favorite blogs Mexican Wildflower. See her post on flavoring Kombucha here.

   It's really easy to flavor the whole jar you made. You can:

A): Use a fruit concentrate (like cherry, cranberry, orange juice, etc) and follow the diluting instructions on the package minus the sugar it calls for


B): Drop in about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of fruit and let sit for about 1-2 days (remove fruit or leave in jar when finished)

What you need to know....
              1. Add your flavoring AFTER the kefir grains have been strained out.
2. DON'T add any sugar - it will be sweet enough!
                                          3. Remember to NOT use a METAL spoon in your kefir water.
