Recipe: Strawberry (Or Any Berry) Kombucha

Strawberries, fresh and sweet, lend a light fruitiness to kombucha. Strawberry-flavored kombucha is available commercially and is usually made with a strawberry puree of some sort. This strawberry kombucha, on the other hand, is made with a handful of fresh, plump berries.


  • 4-6 medium strawberries
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar, maple syrup, or honey, optional
  • Enough kombucha to fill a 16-ounce vessel


  1. Add the strawberries to a 16-ounce vessel.
  2. Fill with kombucha, leaving about 1/2 inch of headspace.
  3. Cap tightly and culture 3-7 days or until kombucha is carbonated to your liking.
  4. Move bottles to refrigerator.
  5. When ready to drink, open carefully to avoid spilling the bubbly kombucha over the top of the bottle.
  6. Strain the strawberries out when serving, if desired.
