Sunshine Kombucha

I love the flavors in this kombucha, but the turmeric is the real hero. Turmeric is a huge anti-inflammatory agent and omega-3 booster. In addition, they are studying its possible role as an aid for prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. You can buy whole pieces of turmeric root in most grocery stores. Ask your grocery clerk – you’ve probably never noticed it.
Course: Beverages
Servings: 16 ounces


  • 2 Tablespoons carrot juice
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Turmeric RootGrated or Juice
  • 14 Ounces Kombucha


  • You can either juice the turmeric root in a juicer or you can use a garlic press to “grate” some of it.
  • Add all ingredients to a 16 oz fermenting safe bottle.
  • Let sit 5-14 days. (If you’re using freshly pressed orange/carrot juice, the fermenting time will be shorter – closer to 5-7 days, depending on the warmth of your house.)


Remember: Always use bottles made for brewing.
If you can find a carrot/orange juice blend, you can use 1/4 cup of this mixture.
