Lemonade Kombucha

Lemonade Kombucha… I think I’m in love.  I did use juice from my preserved lemons in this but you don’t have to.  Regular lemon juice works great.  This recipe is perfect if you kombucha is a bit on the sweet side.  

Lemonade Kombucha
1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
11 oz of kombucha

I have 12 oz flip top bottles so I just add 1-2 tbsp lemon juice (depending on how sweet the kombucha is) and fill the rest of the way with kombucha.  Cover tightly and let set at room temp for about 2 days.

  • I think I'll have to get me some Kombucha to make this recipe. Everyone's talking about it but I have yet to try it, but ssshhh don't tell anyone! I'm a little slow getting on the band wagon from time to time.Thanks for sharing this with us at Whole Food Wednesday, and introducing yourself. I love meeting fellow real food bloggers.

    Hi Melanie,

    When doing a second ferment to flavor the Kombucha…do you use a mother in that jar too? Or just flavor the Komucha and let it sit without a mother? I have some organic Strawberry powder…I thought I may try to add that, but not sure about how much. Thanks!

    • Hi Krystal!
      Always remove the mother for the second ferment. It should only be in the sweetened tea.
      Strawberry powder sounds interesting! I bet it wouldn’t take too much to flavor the kombucha. I’d start with a 1/2 teaspoon maybe and add more if it needs more flavor. Strawberry makes kombucha very happy so check it daily for carbonation.

    I have trouble getting a good fizz in my booch if I don’t add fruit. I do use flip top bottles and get explosive kombucha when there is fruit in it. Any ideas?

  • Mike

    It doesn’t carbonate without the fruit(double fermentation), probably why your not getting the fizz you want. If your looking for carbonation with just the kombucha and tea flavor find a light fruit maybe unless there is a way too add more sugar and allow it to ferment while capped or sealed for a few days.
