This will be my first non-juice / juice fast-related blog in almost two weeks, is anyone else as excited as I am?!? And as upset as I was to finish my fast I realized after two days of moping that it really is an opportunity, an opportunity for kombucha – woop woop!
Today I really tasted my first batch of double-fermented flavored ‘bucha… ginger syrup. Well actually, I unveiled the other flavor (blueberry chia) a few weeks ago but I hadn’t processed the fact that I had shaken the container to capture all the chia seeds before fermenting so when I opened it in the closet where I was hiding it to take a sneaky taste it exploded all over everything… and continued to explode all the way to the kitchen! Not recommended – chia seeds in kombucha all over everything gets very sticky and very stinky very quickly : S
Despite the drama, the tiny mouthful I did manage to save was so delicious I just put in another batch of the same concoction to double-ferment: I added the chia seeds to the liquid not the liquid to the chia seeds this time though so no shaking was required.
For the ginger syrup flavor, I added 1 tbls of Ginger People’s vegan ginger syrup in 500ml of kombucha and put back in a dark closest for two more weeks of fermenting. After the two weeks I put it in the fridge but didn’t have time to drink it before I started my juice fast. It’s lovely – light and refreshing and a little bit sweet. Winner!
