Homemade Strawberry Soda with Kefir
Author: 
Recipe Type: Beverage, Soda, Virgin
Serves: 4 servings
 
Fresh strawberry puree and honey makes this refreshing drink sweet with a fizz from a probiotic kefir water. This is a soda anyone can feel good about.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Water Kefir or Coconut Water Kefir (see the link above to learn how to make kefir)
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • honey
Instructions
  1. First make a batch of water kefir or coconut water kefir by following the directions in the links.
  2. Add strawberries and apple juice to a blender and blend on high until liquified or pureed. Make sure there are no chunks of strawberries.
  3. Add the water kefir and strawberry puree to a pitcher and mix well.
  4. Taste the strawberry water kefir. If it is too sour, add honey or other sweetener to taste. Do not use artificial sweeteners. I use either honey or organic sugar. The amount you need depends on how sweet the strawberries are and your taste.
  5. Pour the strawberry soda into flip-top bottles or other bottle of choice and seal tightly.
  6. Place the bottles on the counter, out of direct sunlight for up to 24 hours to get bubbly.
  7. Place in the fridge and serve cold.
Notes
Don't leave the soda out on the counter for more than 24 hours, because too much pressure can build up and cause a big mess when opened.
You can strain the Probiotic Strawberry Soda before serving too if you prefer the soda to have less pulp.
