WHAT IS KOMBUCHA?

After watching this video and this video, I was all "What is Kombucha?!"

Kombucha is a tea-based beverage created by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture. Huh?! Basically you take this culture that looks like a rubbery pancake called "the mother", put it in some sweet tea and it creates all of these acids and probiotics that do wonders for your health. It sounds a little freaky deaky, but it is so great. I love it and although they isn't a lot of evidence that there are health benefits from drinking this "living beverage," it certainly has tons of claims. If nothing else it is a delicious drink that has an all-natural fizz that is a great pick me up for those trying to wean themselves off carbonated beverages. It tastes to me like sparking apple cider with a little hint of vinegar. Read more here.

I'm curious if any of you have tried making your own. Are you a fan?

  1. Gotta try this! Naturally carbonated!
    And guess what!? I made it through the first day sans Diet Coke! And EASILY at that! I've tried to quit before but always caved in-and struggled. It just feels differently this time around. My heart is completely in it, unlike before. And I know help from the Big Man Upstairs is playing a major role in the ease:) Thanks for your support and encouragement! Honestly, you were the catalyst! (Not trying to make you cry again:) Even my 3 year old said "Diet Toke is bad for you, Mommy." Lol!

    2. PS-I feel like I need to explain why this is such a major deal to me: I was a 5 (five!!!!!!) Diet Coke drinker a day. So just making it through day one feels huge:)
