I absolutely love making kombucha! Kombucha is a fermented, probiotic tea that can be flavored and carbonated to create a really fun and healthy alternative to soda. It has become increasingly popular in recent years, so it is easy to find in many health food stores or grocery stores. The only problem is, that it is usually sold at about $4 a bottle, making it a huge drain on your grocery budget.
Thankfully, it is super easy to make at home for just cents per gallon. Plus, in addition to the cost saving benefits it is also really fun to customize your flavors and experiment with different combinations. That being said, on any given week I am trying to squeeze in my kombucha making process in with all of my other kitchen tasks and when it comes time to actually flavor it, my imagination just isn’t really working.

I just did apricot ginger! Its amazing
strawberry mint was one of my favorites. My only issue is that I don’t like pureeing fruit because I don’t like the pulp, and chunks don’t flavor it enough for my taste, so I either use juice, or organic juice concentrate most of the time.
How about pomegranate & hibiscus?
That sounds yummy!
I like Asian pear and Ginger the best
Some great new ideas. Might I also suggest: coconut lime or cinnamon apple?
I make my own cherry juice from carmine jewel cherries and add 4 oz to each 500ml bottle…very good. Get the benefits of kombucca and the sour cherry juice!
What kind of coconut works best?
fresh coconut would definitely provide the strongest flavor
