Vanilla Chai Kefir

Vanilla Chai Kefir

So you made water kefir, now what? A second ferment with your kefir with warm, wintery chai tea and ground ginger and cinnamon for extra flavour will warm your soul to your toes this winter.
Servings: 1


  • 8 ounces Kefir
  • 2 Tbsp loose chai tea
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon + Sprinkle of cinnamon on top
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup boiling water


  • Place tea in a small mug. Pour just enough water into the mug to cover the tea (there should be hardly any water in here). Cover the top of the mug with a plate to help the tea to steep. Let the tea sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the Kefir into your drinking glass.
  • Add the agave nectar, vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger. Stir.
  • After the tea is done steeping, take out the tea leaves and pour the contents of the mug into your kefir mixture.
  • Stir to combine these ingredients.
  • Decorate your cup with sprinkled cinnamon or a cinnamon stick, and enjoy!
