Kombucha tastes great on it’s own but adding flavor to it can create a whole new and delicious taste. Fresh fruits and herbs can come together to create a dreamy taste that you can only get when you drink kombucha. This recipe includes two ingredients, lemonade and blueberry. Lemons taste great alone but when you combine it with blueberries and kombucha, you will get a drink that is out of this world.
Lemons are a great fruit that can be used in many recipes, including old fashioned lemonade. Lemons are good for treating digestive issues. Because lemons contain citric acid, they are able to help dissolve gallstones, kidney stones, and calcium build up. Antibacterial properties also exist inside the delicious taste of lemons. There are twenty-two anti-cancer compounds found in lemons as well. Lemons also contains citric acid, Vitamin C, B’s, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, and flavonoids.
Blueberries are known as a superfood because they are jammed packed with nutrition and they are great tasting too. Blueberries are small in size, measuring about 02-06 inches in diameter and feature a crown on the top. Blueberries contain important ingredients like fiber vitamin C and K, and manganese. The taste of blueberries is not overpowering and it blends well with other ingredients.
Kombucha is also packed with nutrition which can aid in weight loss, increased energy, reducing joint pain, and detoxifying the body, just to name a few. Kombucha can range in taste from sweet to tart, depending on your taste. There are two fermentation processes to go through before your kombucha is complete. The first ferment process takes about seven days. You don’t want to add flavor to this part of the process. The second process is where you will add the flavors and it will take up to three days to complete.
