    Cherries are delicious in the main season. They are plump and so full of flavor. It’s the perfect time to visit an orchard or even your local grocery store to partake of this wonderful fruit. Fill your freezer up with delicious cherry desserts that you can enjoy all year around; cherry pie, cherry cobbler, cherry turnovers, and more. If you want to take your kombucha up a notch, you will want to experiment with flavors, one of which is cherry and almond. The delicious taste of cherry mixed with the sweetness of almonds and combined with kombucha can make a delicious alternative to any sugary drink offered today.

    Cherries are healthy and can offer your body antioxidants, cancer preventing compounds, decrease inflammation for those who suffer with gout, decrease arthritis pain, fat in the belly area, muscle pain after exercising, and can also reduce your chances of having a stroke. Almonds also offer benefits to your health such as containing more fiber and protein and can aid in lowering your blood sugars, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. If you are losing weight, almonds can help decrease the hunger which can help you maintain your weight loss.

    When you combine cherry and almond with a delicious healthy taste of kombucha, you get a flavor that is perfect for those hot summer days or cool summer nights when you sit out on your porch talking to friends.
