I looooove pumpkin season! Making Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir makes so much sense to me.It is so versatile as it can be sweet or savoury. Packed full of nutrients and flavour, fermenting it makes it bang like the fireworks around this season! I started making this Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir recipe last year when I was playing with recipes for my book Culture Your Life. We make it every year now! Check out all my favourite recipes for pumpkin here.
This Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir recipe is simple and you can use canned pumpkin or make your own very easily (and cheaper!). That way you have complete control over how much sugar you add as in the canning process the pumpkin is heated again thus caramelizing the sugar.
Making your own water kefir is so easy
It is so easy to make your water Kefir as here. There is a video too to help you get started here;
Have fun flavouring it whilst the pumpkins are around! Fun to use this Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir to make cocktails with for family gatherings, BBQ’s and other fall festivals. I make standard Gin and Tonics much more fun, adding this Pumpkin Pie Water Kefir recipe!

A warming, delicious seasonal flavour of Water Kefir. Simple to make and great to boost immunity in Autumn.
If you are a parent you will appreciate that cocktail hour is about 4/5 o’clock on saturday afternoon! Especially if you are just back from a day at the pool! We like a good cocktail (our first date was a wicked cocktail bar), now our kids are older ( and no longer breastfeeding!) it is nice to have something for ourselves again- since we never go anywhere!!
Gin and tonic is a drink I have only really appreciated in the last couple of years! Mother’s ruin gin is called! I have looked into making my own tonic water (watch this space the ingredients are on their way!). We love to flavour ours with cucumber and berries or lime and also orange peel. So it makes sense that we would try one with my orange peel powder
