But once you’ve done it for a day or two, it will grow on you and your should start craving it.

Coconut Milk Kefir

This takes only 12 hours to ferment, Unless you prefer a more sour taste. Then you simply leave it to ferment for longer until the taste appeals to you.

So, how do you make kefir at home?

  • Get kefir grains from your local health food store.
  • Using only plastic or wooden utensils, place the grains into a glass or plastic container.
  • Pour over a 400 ml tin of coconut milk. Stir to combine the kefir grains and the coconut milk.
  • Leave at room temperature for 12 hours.
  • Remove the kefir grains and place in a plastic container, covered with some of the new kefir. Place in the fridge where it will become dormant until you make your next batch.
  • Store your new batch of kefir in the fridge where it will become thicker the longer you leave it there.

Papaya – high in digestive enzymes
