No whey! You can make probiotic soda at home?

That is what I thought when I first learned you could use whey to create cultured food. Sure, I had heard of water kefir and kombucha but both of those required that I purchase another starter culture. I already had plenty of whey from my kefir and yogurt making, so I figured I’d give whey soda a whirl.

After the first few bottles, I was hooked. I found it fascinating that a simple half cup of whey could transform a bottle of juice into a carbonated beverage teeming with nutrients that our modern lifestyles were so desperately missing. With the basics down, I began experimenting with new flavors and combinations. My husband was more than pleased to come home to a new concoction to try.

With this new found favorite, I wanted to share with my fellow friends the ever so delicious and healthy benefits of whey soda (aka kefir soda). Following a year of testing, tasting and trialing fermented beverages, I am pleased to share with you an entire books-worth of recipes. This guide is packed full of recipes to help support a healthy digestive system. Each one uses only real, natural ingredients and is incredibly hydrating on those hot summer days. Flip through the book to find 15 recipes for whey soda plus 2 bonus recipes for classic soda fountain favorites. You can download a copy of the book for free at the bottom of this article.

What is Whey Soda?

One of the easiest fermented drinks to make is a whey soda. Whey soda is a bubbly, probiotic rich drink that is flavored with either juice, a sweetener, extracts or fresh fruit. To harness the power of the probiotics in whey, simply strain the whey out of milk kefir or even plain yogurt with live cultures. Then stir it into juice or a sugar water mixture and the bacteria in the whey will convert the sugar into lactic acid, creating a tasty fermented drink full of nutrition. No soda machine required!

Is Whey a Good Source for Probiotics?

Yes, as long as you strain is from a source that has live, active cultures, such as in homemade kefir or yogurt. Transform the whey into a whey-based beverage to create a fabulous electrolyte drink full of probiotics, minerals and enzymes.

How Do You Make a Probiotic Soda at Home?

To make homemade probiotic soda, you will need 3 basic ingredients. Whey with live cultures, a sweetener such as organic sugar, honey, agave or 100% juice and a flavoring in the form of fruit, fruit juice or an extract. Paired together, these ingredients will create a refreshing, probiotic-rich soda. Scroll to the bottom of this page to download the free eBook with 17 recipes for making gut healthy soda.

When I think of food — what I am eating and where I am sourcing it from, I like to think of a quote from Joel Salatin.

The shorter the chain between raw food and fork, the fresher it is and the more transparent the system is.”
