The flavor of gingerbread comes from blackstrap molasses, ginger and spices. This water kefir doesn't disappoint. Always use blackstrap molasses as opposed to regular molasses as it supplies minerals. Cultures and your body love love minerals.

One of my favorite smoothies. It has a secret ingredient (chai tea bag) that gives it loads of flavor. Don't forget the topping. It will have you eating more pumpkin because of the deliciousness.
You will fool even yourself with this one! Use your extra SCOBYS and lots of ice and you have a cool summer treat. It's a unique flavor and texture when mixed with fruit and herbs. You'll want to use all your SCOBYs to make sorbets.

Kimchi

Kimchi is an ancient dish that Koreans have been making for centuries. In fact, it is their national dish, and I’m sure that every family has their own recipe. My recipe is not as spicy as some, but you can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste.

Yerba Mate Tea Kombucha

by

There are many health benefits to yerba mate tea and it is revered in the tea world as an energy booster. Many who are sensitive to caffeine say that even though yerba mate is high in caffeine they don't get the side effects like they might from coffee. It is an acquired taste for some. So if you are nervous about this recipe, make a half batch and cut every ingredient in half (except the SCOBY). Try this fun tea as a new base for your already delicious kombucha!
Jasmine pearls create a lovely floral flavor with your brew. We like it so much we rarely second ferment it!

Kefir Date Shake

by

Dates are packed with vitamins and minerals, but one of the most interesting things about dates is the presence of organic sulfur in them. This is a really hard element to find in a food source. Sulfur is incredibly important and is the third most abundant mineral in the body. Sulfur is essential for life and makes up vital amino acids used to create protein for cells, hormones, enzymes, and antibodies. It's necessary for insulin production and sulfur detoxifies at the cellular level. It also relieves pain and makes for beautiful skin and hair.

Grapefruit Mint Kombucha

by

When I was a little girl my dad loved grapefruits so much he bought special grapefruit spoons and knives that has edges to cut the grapefruits with. I developed a great love for grapefruits and during the month of April and May I try to have a grapefruit or its juice each day. I like to use bottled juice with this recipe because it gives a better, less strong flavor and doesn't cause explosions. If you do use fresh grapefruit juice, only ferment 2-5 days.

Carrot Kombucha

by

This kombucha is super bubbly and loaded with antioxidants and lots of vitamin A. I think carrots are something special and that we should include them in our diets as much as possible. I love the flavor of fresh carrots. Nothing shouts, "Get back to your roots!" quite like carrots.

Carrot Water Kefir

by

This has a mild carrot flavor that is so delightful I can't really describe it. Just trust me you will love it!

Pecan Milk Kefir

by

When making non dairy kefir, you just need to be sure the non dairy milk has eight grams of carbohydrates to give the bacteria something to eat. It takes the sugars and makes it into probiotics for you. You don’t get the sugar but instead lots of healthy probiotics. If it doesn’t have eight grams of carbohydrates than you can add one teaspoon of date paste, or raw sugar, per quart. I have placed the recommended amounts for Pecan milk in the recipe below.

This recipe can be tweaked and made many ways. You can make it dairy free with coconut kefir cheese and tofutti. It can also be sugar free, which is how I make it, with stevia.

I love to top this with fresh coconut. Toasting the coconut is even more tasty, but I never do this. I'm always in a hurry and hungry and can hardly wait to eat this yummy smoothie. If you don't have coconut kefir, no worries. Use regular kefir and add some extra shredded coconut to the smoothie.

Add a head of fresh lettuce to a bowl, scoop out these veggies, and serve with your favorite dressing.
