Kombucha is a natural beverage that is becoming increasingly popular. It is a natural probiotic, made from the fermentation of black tea with a fungus called Scoby. It has many properties for our body and is the perfect substitute for soft drinks. And, in addition, we can prepare this magnificent drink in a multitude of flavors, like the one we bring you today: Orange and Ginger Kombucha.
Kombucha is a natural probiotic that has been used by humans for centuries. Known as the tea of immortality for its numerous properties, it has recently become very famous. But, like all home fermentations, it requires great care not to contaminate the beverage.
We have already seen how to prepare homemade Kombucha, as well as all the properties and benefits it has for our organism.
The result of this fermentation is a sweet, tea-based, carbonated beverage. So it is perfect to replace soft drinks which, on the other hand, are not healthy at all. And, in addition, thanks to the great versatility of this drink, we can prepare it with a multitude of different flavors. If you dare to give a different touch to your kombucha, do not miss this recipe for Orange and Ginger Kombucha. Two ingredients also with numerous very healthy qualities, making them the perfect combination for kombucha.
Recipe for Orange and Ginger Kombucha
To prepare this drink we must have previously prepared the Kombucha. We can also find it already prepared in supermarkets and department stores. But it will not have the same properties. Since, in order to be marketed, it has had to previously go through processes that eliminate the living agents of this drink. Therefore, its benefits are considerably lower.
Even so, preparing homemade Kombucha is not risk-free, which is why we insist on the importance of hygiene in the place where we are going to prepare it.
Once we have our Kombucha ready, after the first fermentation, preparing this drink is as simple as adding orange juice and grated fresh ginger. We will let it rest again in a cool and dark place for two to four days, so that it gets gas again, and we will have our refreshment ready.
In addition, the spicy touch of the ginger combines perfectly with the sweetness of the orange. And, as we always say, the quantities are estimates. If you really like the touch of ginger and you want a stronger drink, you can always increase the amount of ginger to add.
Once the drink is ready, we will pass it to the refrigerator to take it very cold, since it is the best way to drink it. And, before consuming it, we can strain it to remove the remains that may have been left.
Kombucha with Orange and Ginger
- 500 ml Kombucha
- 60 ml Orange Juice (freshly squeezed)
- 1 piece Ginger (small, about a couple of centimeters)
- Once we have the Kombucha ready, and the first fermentation has passed, preparing this drink is very simple. We will begin by squeezing the oranges, reserving them.
- Put the kombucha in a bottle with a stopper, so that it closes hermetically. Add the orange juice, grated ginger and close the bottle tightly and shake lightly to integrate all the ingredients.
- We leave the bottle at room temperature, in a dark place, for two days. After that time, it will be ready to taste a delicious orange and ginger Kombucha. Keep it in the fridge to drink it chilled.
