Last time I went to the supermarket, I found coconut water and I was thinking about preparing a tasty fermented drink. For this reason I want to show you something very special today: selfmade Coconut Kefir!

But why should we prepare Kefir with Coconut water?

Very important is this Kefir recipe with fresh coconut water* which is made of a green coconut. To get one of those delicious green coconut water, the coconuts are already harvest after half a year of growing. But please do not confound Coconut water with coconut milk* Coconut milk is made of the pulp of an one year old coconut. It is a tasty rarity in Germany but in other southern countries it’s a daily drink. Even top-ranking athlets do know about the isotonic potential of coconut water.
