Why bother brewing your own kombucha? Because it's super easy, tastes amazing, and costs next to nothing. My family loves kombucha, but the store bought versions aren't just super expensive, they also don't taste half as good as homemade. Jude and I have been making homemade kombucha for well over a year now and it's really easier than you might think. In this post I will share how to create a simple and delicious raspberry flavored kombucha complete with tips for a healthy brew and how to get the kids in on the action. This is a great base recipe and kombucha can be flavored in many different ways. In fact, I will be sharing a few of my favorite seasonal flavors soon!
Kombucha Is A Tasty, Healthful Drink
First, a little info on what the heck komucha is and why you should make it. Kombucha is a beverage made from fermented tea, it is full of probiotics and healthful yeasts, both of which are great for your gut and immune system. Because it is fermented it does contain a very small amount of alcohol. I do allow my kids to drink it, just not by the jug full. Usually they get about half a cup at a time, just to be safe and because I want more for myself!
