Starry Night Kombucha

Night skies, especially clear in the winter, are a treat to gaze upon. This special recipe calls on fresh starfruit and pears to create a delicious medley of flavors for Starry Night Kombucha. 

  • Starfruit – thin slices, cut into small pieces (2 tbsp.)
  • Fresh ginger – a dime to penny-sized slice (1 tsp.)
  • Pear – fresh and juicy, diced (1 tbsp)
  • Nutmeg – one dash

Starfruit is a tangy, somewhat sour fruit that is rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and beta carotene. Starfruit can be expensive – be sure to look in your grocery store’s “day-old” section for over-ripe produce.

I found this starfruit at my local co-op for about a dollar. I washed the fruit well and cut off the brown spots.

Dehydrate any leftovers for a cute pick-me-up starry snack any time of year!
