Drinking kombucha provides many health benefits, such as providing antioxidants, improving digestion and being anti-inflammatory. The most common way people consume this multi-beneficial drink made by fermenting tea is by drinking it straight.
Besides drinking it, there are more ways to consume kombucha than most people think. The basic kombucha drink can be used as a lower-calorie ingredient as compared to wine or beer and enhance the flavour profile of your desserts, dips, and dressings.
With so many ways to include kombucha in your meals, the sky is the limit for this versatile drink. If you’re looking for creative ways to have your kombucha, here are some methods to incorporate kombucha into your foods!
Refreshing kombucha popsicles
Living in a tropical climate in Singapore, the weather can get scorching hot, leaving you craving an icy cold snack to cool off!
Leave behind the usual soft drinks, get out your favourite kombucha brew, and have a go at some kombucha popsicles that are refreshing and equally easy to make.
For this treat, have some fun and sweeten things up by using our fruit-flavoured kombuchas! Elixr Inc’s Lychee Mint Kombucha or Grape Peppermint Kombucha would taste delicious as a popsicle.
In a popsicle mould or an ice cube tray, first put in some small pieces of cut fruit, aloe vera jelly, or anything you desire. Blueberries, strawberries, mango or lychees would be great additions.
Pour in the kombucha of your choice into the mould or tray, pop in a popsicle stick and let it freeze for 5-6 hours. With frozen kombucha popsicles in hand, you’re all ready to tackle the sweltering heat!
Tangy salad dressing
If you love to eat salads or need a simple condiment for your rice bowls, try making a kombucha salad dressing.
The main ingredients are one cup of good olive oil, half a cup of regular kombucha, and salt. Other ingredients like minced garlic, fresh herbs, and black pepper can also be experimented with to personalise the recipe to your palate. Play around with the ratio of ingredients to kombucha to adjust the tanginess of the dressing. A tip: The more kombucha you add, the tangier the taste!
Kombucha for this recipe is an excellent alternative to vinegar, especially if you feel like you need more probiotics to improve your gut health.
