But they were in for a great surprise! Water kefir soda is delicious! And, if you ferment it correctly, you’ll end up with a very bubbly, fizzy drink that’s good for you as well!

To make water kefir cream soda, you can use either water kefir grains or kefir powder.
Use about 3/4 cup grains or 1 packet powder for 2 quarts of soda.
Place all ingredients in a 2-quart glass container, add water kefir grains or powder, fill with water to make 2 quarts, cover tightly, and leave at room temperature for 48 hours.
Strain the liquid through a non-metallic strainer.
If using grains, rinse them with water and either use again or store in a jar in the refrigerator with about 1/2 cup water mixed with 1 tablespoon Sucanat or maple sugar.
If using the powder, reserve about 1/2 cup liquid as a starter for the next batch–this will work for about 5 to 6 batches, then you will need to use powder again.
Store the soda in the original glass container in the refrigerator.
If you’d like your kefir cream soda to be bubbly, transfer to a swingtop glass brewing bottle.
Makes about 2 quarts.
