Strapped for time? Feeling lazy? Brew cycle sneak up on your week? Need a kombucha flavor — quick?!! Read on for my quick, fast, cheap, and easy kombucha recipe, and use regular items stocked in your kitchen pantry.
My secret weapon?
A small can of Dole pineapple juice.
You know the small cans you can purchase in six-packs? Yup – those!
And, while I don’t make a habit of adding extra sugar like this to kombucha, the amount of juice used per bottle is really minimal. And plus, pineapple juice is a vibrant and satisfying source of Vitamin C.
You can also use orange juice, cranberry juice, cherry juice, etc… See what I mean? Super easy.
For each 12-16 oz bottle, add one (1) tbsp. juice during the flavoring process.
What else do you have on hand?
Of course, just a splash of pineapple juice in a kombucha bottle can be enough for a flavor. But, if you want to give yourself a deeper experience — and try something new — take a look at your spice rack for a few seconds.
Dried herbs, seasonings, and powders will compliment a pineapple kombucha while allowing you to still try something new quickly. And, maybe also get rid of stuff.
