Kombucha. That was my stellar, push-it-over-the-top ingredient in today’s smoothie. Kombucha is slightly fermented drink with a bit of zing. Claims are high on its health benefits of the drink. I like it. While my blueberry-mango smoothie was coming along just fine, I felt it needed “something,” so I added the kombucha. Perfect! Here’s what I pureed in my Vitamix —
- 1.5 c. frozen blueberries
- 1.5 c. frozen mango
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Li’l bit of water
- 8 oz of berry-flavored kombucha
I’ve been paying a bit more attention to the acid-alkaline range of my body’s chemistry, and my understanding is kombucha helps move the body toward a more basic chemistry.
