Ginger Lemon Kombucha Ingredients 2-inch piece of ginger 2 Tbs water 1 Tbs lemon juice ½ tsp cane sugar Plain kombucha from primary fermentation Supplies 34 oz snap-top bottle High-speed blender Instructions
Place ginger and water in a high-speed blender and blend until ginger is completely pulverized.
Strain liquid into a jar.
Add 1 tablespoon ginger juice, lemon juice, and sugar to snap-top bottle.
Fill the bottle with primary fermentation kombucha, leaving 2 inches of space at the top.
Close the top and allow kombucha and flavoring to ferment at room temperature for 2–4 days. “Burp” the bottle every day to release the pressure by opening and closing the snap top.
When the desired level of carbonation and flavor is reached, place in the refrigerator.
Here is one of my go-to kombucha flavoring recipes! Ginger and lemon are powerhouse foods that support digestion, the immune system and your body’s natural detoxification pathways. I prefer making ginger juice over slicing or grating the ginger for better and more integrated flavor, plus no straining at the end!
