Citrus Cream Kombucha Smoothie.
This smoothie is creamy, and the tanginess of the kombucha and grapefruit perfectly offset the sweetness from the strawberries and mango..
I really think this one might become an all time favorite!Adding kombucha to a smoothie is a brilliant move.
Smoothies, especially morning smoothies, are a perfect way to ingest a lot of the nutrients you need through out the day. And if kombucha is something you know you want to add to your daily diet, adding it to a smoothie is a fun fast way to tick that off your list.
Here is a bit of background on kombucha which you may or may not need, the fermented drink is a black tea with probiotics that occur naturally in the mix. Actually the drink has been around 2000 years, but as you probably have heard, is trending now as a healthy addition to your daily diet.
Experts advise 8 ounces a day to support your gut and immune system with the probiotics the drink contains.
It’s important to choose a quality kombucha, though. Apparently experts don’t advise buying one that says “pasturized” because that means the probiotics are killed off (so why call it kombucha? I don’t know).
And for this recipe, and probably best overall, it is best to avoid those with lots of added sugar.
I provide you in the recipe with a low-sugar brand I know of, but you can read the labels and buy one that is convenient for you. This recipe makes about 2 cups.
- 1 cup kombucha
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- To make the smoothie, blend up the frozen fruits first, then add the liquids, with the kombucha added last. Drink immediately. If you like this kombucha smoothie, use the sharing buttons! Thank you!
