Kombucha is fabulous! I was trying to figure out a way for my hubby to get probiotics since he can no longer eat dairy, and being the
cheepo frugal gal that I am I didn’t feel like purchasing pills. One afternoon we went to a friends house and her husband dared us to try it! Turns out we liked it, so we went home with a “SCOBY” and started brewing our own kombucha!
What the heck is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented tea known to have many health benefits, although not many studies have been done to prove it. People have been consuming it for centuries, It’s packed with probiotics, B vitamins, and can help aid in digestion and boost your energy. Kombucha may not be safe for everyone. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid drinking it due to the small alcohol and caffeine content.
This smoothie also has other whole foods packed with nutrients like…
Blackberries are high in antioxidants, vitamin C and K, can help reduce inflammation, help make your skin look longer, and improve your memory.
Peaches are high in Vitamin A and C, potassium, antioxidants, and fiber.
Honey of course is basically the cure all to everything… Kidding kinda. Its packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and can help reduce season allergies, is an antimicrobial and anti fungal. Plus is delicious! 2
