23 Healthy Kombucha Recipes to Heal Your Gut

kombucha recipes

We love kombucha so much at Annmarie Skin Care HQ that we have a keg on tap. That's why we were so excited to share this article from our friends at PaleoHacks!

Fizzle up with these gut-healing kombucha recipes filled with nourishing probiotics!

Fermented foods like yogurts, sauerkraut, and kimchi all offer your gut the mega-benefit of probiotics, but there’s one fermented elixir that tops our list: kombucha.

This fizzy drink is typically made by fermenting tea with a sweetener and a SCOBY, or a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. If you’ve never made a batch from scratch before, we’ve got the best kombucha guide to help get you started.

Paleo-friendly kombucha?

Kombucha tastes best when you make it at home with Paleo-friendly ingredients – it’s also much more cost-effective than buying bottles of it at the store. The best part? You can flavor kombucha with a variety of fresh fruit, spices, flowers, teas, and roots.

From strawberry to hibiscus to pumpkin spice, and more, you’ll find plenty of sweet-drink kombucha recipes to shake up your daily water routine. You can even experiment with flavors to create your own gut-healing kombucha gummies.

To flavor your kombucha, you’ll need to send it through a second fermentation process. Adding too many extra ingredients during the first stage of fermentation may damage the SCOBY or have other adverse effects on your brew. So, brew up a big batch of that fermented tea and try these flavored kombucha recipes to liven up your drink.
