- ¼ cup of syrup from your choice of canned fruit

When exploring flavorings, you may want to look no further than your cupboards where you have nice canned fruit sitting all pretty on the shelf, awaiting for winter to arrive so you can enjoy each fresh bite. The syrup protecting your fruit from drying out and losing its flavor can also be used to sweeten and flavor your water kefir. The syrup includes the the natural sugars and flavors from the fruits as well. One fruit in particular that is easy to use when flavoring water kefir is peaches.
Canned fruit syrup that you can use for this recipe includes peach, apricot, pineapple, or pear. You can purchase the canned fruit online or you can can your own. Keep in mind, when you use grocery store canned fruit, you may end up with more sugar in your syrup which will over sweeten your drink.
