Refreshing Raspberry water kefir recipe

Refreshing Raspberry: A Refreshing Summer Water Kefir Flavor Combo

As the scorching summer sun beat down on me, I found myself craving a cool and revitalizing beverage to quench my thirst. Inspired by the vibrant hues and tangy sweetness of the fresh raspberries growing in my garden, I embarked on a quest to create the perfect Raspberry Water Kefir.

Combining the natural goodness of water kefir with the lusciousness of ripe raspberries, I discovered a delightful concoction that captured the essence of summer. I hope you’ll enjoy ‘Refreshing Raspberry’, as much as my family did – perfect poolside elixir that will transport you to a world of fruity delight.



  1. In a clean glass jar, dissolve the sugar in water. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Add the water kefir grains to the sweetened water and gently stir.
  3. Cover the jar with a clean cloth or coffee filter and secure it with a rubber band. Allow the mixture to ferment at room temperature for 24 to 48 hours.
  4. After the fermentation period, strain the water kefir grains from the liquid and set them aside for future use.
  5. In a blender, combine the fresh raspberries and lemon juice. Blend until smooth and strain the mixture to remove any seeds.
  6. Add the strained raspberry-lemon juice to the fermented water kefir liquid and stir well to combine.
  7. Pour the raspberry-infused water kefir into bottles with airtight lids, leaving a little headspace for carbonation.
  8. Seal the bottles and let them sit at room temperature for an additional 24 to 48 hours to allow for a secondary fermentation. This step will help create natural carbonation.
  9. Once the desired level of carbonation is reached, transfer the bottles to the refrigerator to chill.
  10. When ready to serve, pour the Raspberry Bliss Water Kefir into a glass filled with ice and garnish with fresh raspberries or a slice of lemon.

Indulge in the tangy and effervescent Raspberry Bliss, and let the burst of flavor transport you to a summer oasis. Cheers to refreshing sips and the joy of culinary exploration!
