Tuesday Twister time—Better late than never!

WATER KEFIR –BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE FLAVOR

I finally made water kefir again. We liked this one much better than the last (pineapple flavor). I flavored this one with some blueberry, pomegranate juice. Very tasty and my body has finally gotten used to this stuff. Next I want to make a ginger flavored kefir using fresh ginger.

I love the way these bottles look, but I need to get a better funnel, it takes me forever to fill them up. I got them at IKEA for a couple of dollars.

APPLE GINGER LEMON DRINK

This next drink is typically made in a juicer. I don’t have a juicer yet, so I used my Vitamix. There was only a little pulp so I think it worked fine in the Vitamix and will continue to play around with this idea.

Also generally I would make this drink in the summer months, it is too cooling for a winter drink. Maybe it would make a niced mulled cider though?

You can see the “pulp” on the glass. I just mixed it up before drinking and it was fine.

Water Kefir granules can be found at www.culturesforhealth.com

I didn’t use an exact recipe for the Apple-ginger-lemon Drink:

3-4 medium apples, peeled if using a vitamix or blender, unpeeled if using a juicer

juice from 1/2 – 1 lemon (meyers lemons work well)

1-2 tsp fresh grated ginger

Water

Puree until completely blended and pureed. Serve.

  1. Tiffany—I love the bottles you found at IKEA—and the tip about the funnel! Water kefir is on my list of things to make, and I like the sound of your latest flavor. How did your body have to adjust to get used to it? Just wondering what I might be in for! 🙂

  2. Yes, better late than never! 🙂

    Love those bottles, too. Glad your family liked this water kefir flavor better. Our batch of water kefir yesterday was the best ever. I didn’t let it go too long (which happens more often than I like) so it was still a bit sweet – the Rapadura leaves a rich flavor and then I added vanilla. Yumm!
