Carrot and Tumeric Water Kefir Recipe

You can make your own probiotic-rich drink from a juice. I used a kefir starter from Cultures for Health – as long as there is sugar, the bacteria will thrive; eat up the sugar and release beneficial bacteria to populate your gut.

Carrots and turmeric are a classic pairing and the addition of fresh orange juice and ginger add a little sweetness and spice in this refreshing juice kefir.
