Pineapple-flavored Water Kefir


The sweet, juicy flavors of pineapple lend a tantalizing flavor to water kefir. The end result is carbonated, slightly sweet, and strongly or lightly flavored with pineapple, depending on the method you choose.

For flavoring your water kefir with pineapple you can use one of the following three ingredients to achieve the indicated level of flavor:

Pineapple juice – Heavily flavored with pineapple, sweeter than the other variations.

Pineapple fruit – Moderately flavored with pineapple, medium sweetness.

Pineapple rind – Light pineapple flavor, mild sweetness. (Bonus: Use the rind you would otherwise throw out!)


  • 3-1/2 cups water kefir
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice or several chunks of pineapple fruit or the rind of a whole pineapple


  1. Combine cultured water kefir and pineapple ingredient of choice in airtight bottles. Divide the ingredients among the number of bottles you will need to use, leaving a bit of air space in each.
  2. Cap tightly and allow to ferment for 1 to 5 days, depending on the temperature in your home and the activity of your water kefir.

To serve, either chill the juice-containing water kefir or strain out the fruit or rind-containing water kefir and serve chilled or over ice.
