Kombucha Smoothie

Kombucha smoothie. No, I’m not kidding. Think of a root beer float, just instead of ice cream – pureed with creamy almond milk frozen fruit, and in place of pop – kombucha. The same sweet treat floating in a fizzy drink but healthy. And it literally takes 3-4 ingredients, blender and 2 minutes and. Perfection for summer and a breath of fresh air in a tired smoothie world. Don’t you think?!

Did you think I would just stop with my “kombucha business”?! I’m literally obsessed, especially during hot summer days. Good news for those of you who are still on a fence re: making kombucha from scratch, you can use store-bought kombucha. For those who have successfully faced their fears and successfully grew a SCOBY (please step forward and “raise your hand” in the comments to encourage our “sisters”), after you completed this step => how to make kombucha fizzy, you can whip up this healthy kombucha smoothie a.k.a healthy root beer float.

And while all of the above might sound overwhelming, trust me these floats are a breeze to make as long as you keep kombucha, frozen fruit and almond milk on hand. And what real foodie 2017 doesn’t?! Another literally cool recipe would be lime iced tea or take advantage of first beets of the season and try this red smoothie.

How to Make Kombucha Smoothie

Kombucha, almond milk and cup of frozen mango

To make kombucha smoothie, choose the sweetest fruit like bananas, mango, pineapple and cherries. If you would like to use berries, just add more maple syrup or honey. Fruit has to be frozen in order to float. You can freeze fresh chopped fruit yourself (for example, if you want to use local fruit in season or bananas), but more often than not I turn to frozen fruit from my Costco shopping list. Today I picked mango.

Measuring cup of almond milk

Almond milk in measuring cup

To puree the fruit, add almond milk. Silk unsweetened is creamy and delicious, and to be perfectly honest I have been buying other organic and not brands for years, however after working with Silk for this recipe I find it superior to others. It is creamier and has nuttier taste than other brands (you can receive $1 off coupon now by signing up here). My 10 year old recently switched to almond milk after learning where cow’s milk comes from, he taste tested Silk and there is no way back.

turmeric

Feel free to add turmeric or cinnamon. A boost of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds along with pretty colour. Just not too much.

Blended ingredients in blender

The mixture inside the blender should be of a soft serve consistency, so it floats. In case it’s not, add more almond milk or frozen fruit, depending what state of smoothie you end up with.

Glasses filled half way with kombucha

First, fill each of 2 glasses half way through with fizzy kombucha . It has to be store-bought or homemade fizzy kombucha (=> how to make kombucha fizzy). The red one you see is with cherry and chia seeds, recipe I shared in flavoring kombucha post. You can use any other flavour or plain kombucha, as long as it’s fizzy. Then carefully scoop frozen fruit mixture on top until glass is full.

Garnish with cherries, if desired.

Aren’t they a couple of beauties?! Be healthy!
