Growing up, I was a junk food junkie and that included walking down to the local convenience store to get slushies in the hot, humid New England summers.

They’re definitely cold but they’re most certainly rammed with artificial colors, tons of corn syrup and fake colors. Not so healthy.

What is Kombucha?

Last year, I got the idea to blend kombucha – a fermented probiotic tea  – with frozen fruit to take the edge of a particularly sweltering San Diego day.

Kombucha is easy to make at home. It’s fermented with the help of live cultures of bacteria and yeast called a SCOBY. (Want to know more about how to make kombucha at home? It’s easy! Check out my tutorial.)

What are the Benefits of Kombucha?

Kombucha is a fermented beverage that contains probiotics, active cultures of friendly bacteria and yeast. It’s been around for thousands of years, but has become more popular recently because it’s a healthier alternative to soda.

As a result of the fermentation process, kombucha also contains B vitamins, organic acids, and beneficial enzymes.

How I Make My Kombucha Slushie Recipe

It really couldn’t be simpler:

To make this drink, you’ll blend frozen fruit with kombucha in a high-powered blender. (This is the blender I have.) Two ingredients and you’re done!

The result was an icy Kombucha Slushie with the perfect frozen texture and sweet, tart flavor. And the best part, it’s healthy, unlike the convenience store vice of my youth, the Slurpie.

Fruit and Kombucha Combinations to Try

Some of my favorite combos of fruit and kombucha are:

  • Strawberry kombucha + frozen strawberries
  • Mango kombucha + frozen mangoes
  • Grape kombucha + frozen blueberries

Note: Frozen raspberries and blackberries have great flavor but their seeds can make the slushie gritty.

  1. Good for the gut bugs. These are wonderful, make them all the time. Sometimes I use homemade Kefir instead of kombucha for an alternative “milk” shake.

  2. Super easy and perfect for a hot day. I made this with my homemade blackberry Kombucha and strawberries and my kids and I loved it. I’m so glad I made a double batch. Thanks for a great recipe!

  3. This is really good! I had a pineapple-peach kombucha and I blended it with frozen pineapple and strawberries. My 7-year-old stole it. He’s never had kombucha before, so I’m really excited to introduce him to something new. Thanks!
